Eli Roth has his own Shudder series as well, History of Horror. The show brings together horror creators and stars such as Stephen King, Jordan Peele, and Quentin Tarantino to explore the genre’s biggest themes and reveal the inspirations and struggles behind some of its biggest movies.

The second season featured the likes of Bill Hader, Megan Fox, Rachel True, and Rob Zombie. The third season will feature episodes titled Sinister Psychics, Infections, Mad Scientists, Apocalyptic Horror, Sequels That Don’t Suck, and Holiday Horror.

Eli Roth’s History of Horror is produced by The Content Group, which makes Nat Geo’s Breakthrough, and Marwar Junction Productions, the company behind Disney+’s Earth to Ned. It is exec produced by Roth, Kurt Sayenga, Steven Michaels, Jodi Flynn, Joseph Freed and Allison Berkley.

On The Last Drive-In, Briggs, the world’s foremost drive-in movie critic hosts eclectic horror movie double features, expounding upon their merits, histories, and significance to genre cinema. Shudder and Briggs first teamed up in July 2018, for the 24-hour marathon intended to be Briggs’ final farewell to televised movie hosting.

And then due to overwhelming popular demand, Shudder went ahead and brought back The Last Drive-In as a weekly series. Plus, multiple holiday specials.

Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell produced The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs. Austin Jennings directs. The third season will premiere on Shudder in 2021.
