The first season of Shudder’s anthology series Creepshow is coming to Blu-ray and DVD this May. And will also start airing on AMC next month as well with two episodes will air back-to-back on Mondays at 9:00pm ET/8c from May 4 through May 18.
And today, showrunner Greg Nicotero revealed season 2 will contain six episodes.
Nicoteto tells AITH: “I was hoping that for season two, we would have gotten a bigger pickup, maybe eight or ten episodes. But you know, Shudder is still new to the game in terms of the amount of money they can to put towards multiple shows. So I was hoping that we would have gotten more, but honestly, trying to fit CREEPSHOW into the hiatus of THE WALKING DEAD, six episodes does fit well before I have to go back to my other job.”
Creepshow is based on the classic written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. It’s Shudder’s first hour-long scripted series, and it was a hit with members and critics alike. The series is rated 92% Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and was called one of the “10 best shows on TV right now“ by Paste Magazine. More than 50% of Shudder members watched at least one episode of the series, and the show has also helped drive record growth for the streaming service.
Season one of Creepshow stars David Arquette (Scream ), Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), Tobin Bell (Saw), Big Boi (Scream: The TV Series), Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Kid Cudi (Drunk Parents), Bruce Davison (X-Men), Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Dana Gould (Stan Against Evil), Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural) and features adaptations of stories by Stephen King, Joe Hill, Joe R. Lansdale, Josh Malerman and others. Nicotero’s Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy winning studio KNB EFX GROUP will again serve as creature creators.
It is produced by the Cartel, Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment. Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, Eric Woods, Greg Nicotero, Brian Witten, Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson, Jordan Kizwani, Russell Binder, and Marc Mostman are executive producers.
