Yesterday, Channel Zero creator Nick Antosca took over Shudder's Twitter account to answer YOUR questions about the show as part of a celebration of season 2 dropping on Shudder. Antosca did not disappoint, as there were plenty of interesting nuggets revealed during the Q&A...
...For those still unfamiliar, Channel Zero is a horror series which aired on Syfy in 2016 with its first season, entitled Candle Cove. The six-episode series received immediate praise, and has since produced two other seasons, with a fourth premiering on Syfy in October. Each season focuses on a different horror story (most adapted from Creepy Pasta tales), and features additional creative talent behind the scenes such as Don Mancini (Child's Play) and Max Landis (Chronicle).
In honor of season 2 releasing on Shudder just yesterday, creator Nick Antosca (Hannibal) took over Shudder's Twitter and had plenty to say in response to fan questions regarding the show. Questions ranged from Antosca's favorite season (he doesn't have one) to his inspiration for the tooth child from season one (came from a dream he had while working on Hannibal), but he also revealed some interesting tidbits in relation to season 4 and the show's future.
Wait, the return of the tooth child!? Not sure how that would work, but I'm down! But there's more...
While I'm not all that familiar with any of these stories, it's awesome to discover what we could potentially see adapted for future seasons. Though I am surprised that, for such a wonderfully made show, they have such a low budget. Speaks to the talents of the filmmakers, but come on Syfy, give these people anything they ask for, it's worth it. And lastly...
What the hell does a pug skull have to do with anything? I don't know, but I can't wait to find out!
To read more of what Antosca had to say, head on over to Shudder's Twitter and don't forget to check out Season 4 of Channel Zero, premiering on Syfy October 26!
