'Hellraiser's' Ashley Laurence and 'The Thing's' Keith David Join Shudder's 'Creepshow Season 2'! Other Details Revealed!
The Creep is on his way back...
...Shudder has announced today that production on season 2 of Creepshow has started up again, after being delayed by the pandemic! Showrunner Greg Nicotero is once again returning behind the camera, after delivering the first season of Creepshow, based off of the classic George A. Romero horror anthology.
Said Nicotero, “I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today. After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, season 2 of 'Creepshow' hits the ground running as cameras begin to roll. The cast and crew have a level of excitement and enthusiasm I’ve never seen before and it’s inspiring. So many of us in the entertainment industry have been waiting for the day we can begin to do what we do best—to have some fun together creating new worlds, new adventures and new thrills."
Shudder also revealed initial details about four of this season’s segments, which will be directed by Greg Nicotero. Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) will star in “Shapeshifters Anonymous” Parts 1 and 2, written by Greg Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call) about an unlucky soul who finds himself in need of a werewolf support group; Keith David (The Thing), Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser) and Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead) will star in “Pesticide,” written by Frank Dietz (I Hate Kids), in which an exterminator makes an infernal bargain; and “Model Kid,” written by returning Creepshow writer John Esposito (season one’s “Night of the Paw”), is about a 12-year-old monster fan who turns to hand-built model kits to escape his unhappy reality.
Additional titles, casting and directors will be announced soon.
