Following a record-setting first season, Shudder — AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural — announced the season two renewal of its horror anthology series, Creepshow. Executive produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (​The Walking Dead), Creepshow is based on the iconic 1982 movie written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero.

Creepshow, Shudder’s first hour-long scripted series, has been a hit with its 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.

“Creepshow has met every expectation we had for Shudder’s first original scripted series and then some, with record numbers across the board,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “Greg Nicotero and his team delivered an amazing show that’s unlike anything else on TV and we’re thrilled and delighted to bring it back for another season.”

“For me, Creepshow has been a true labor of love,” said Nicotero. “To be able to pay tribute to George A. Romero’s visionary project and have the show so embraced by fans everywhere is humbling to this horror kid from Pittsburgh. I couldn’t be more pleased and look forward to continuing the series with more ghoulish delight.”

“Working with Greg Nicotero and Shudder on Creepshow has been a dream come true,” said Stan Spry, executive producer for the series and CEO of the Cartel. “We’re thrilled to carry on the Creepshow legacy with season two.”

The season one finale airs Thursday, October 31, both on demand and on the Shudder TV live-stream at 9:00 pm ET/6:00 pm PT. Shudder is available on all your favorite devices and platforms, including Apple TV Channels.

Season one of Creepshow stars David Arquette (​Scream franchise), Adrienne Barbeau (​The Fog), Tobin Bell (​Saw), Big Boi (​Scream: The TV Series), Jeffrey Combs (​Star Trek, 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 award-winning Make-up Effects studio KNB EFX GROUP will again serve as creature creators.

Shudder’s ​Creepshow is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment: Stan Spry, Jeff Holland, and Eric Woods are executive producers for the Cartel; Greg Nicotero and Brian Witten are executive producers for Monster Agency Productions; Robert Dudelson, James Dudelson and Jordan Kizwani are executive producers for Taurus Entertainment; Russell Binder is executive producer and Marc Mostman co-executive producer for Striker Entertainment.

Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, announced today that Joe Bob Briggs, host of The Last Drive-In, will return on December 13 with an all-new special, Joe Bob’s Red Christmas. The triple feature of holiday horrors will stream live at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT on Shudder in the U.S. and Canada. It will also be made available on demand later in December. The special will be Briggs’ second of the year, following Joe Bob’s Halloween Hootenanny, which premieres tonight.

“Every Christmas we try to get that perfect mix of movies the whole family can watch, plus movies that will cause every family member except dedicated horror fiends to run screaming from the room. That’s because we realize that Christmas celebrations can go either way. We think we’ve achieved that balance with Joe Bob’s Red Christmas, combining the cult, the classic and the bizarre in a holiday stew designed to keep you reaching for the egg nog or equivalent, and to keep Aunt Shirley complaining about your choices. In between the films we have holiday hijinks that are frankly embarrassing, because that’s also what Americans do on Christmas,” said Briggs.

The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs began in July 2018 as a one time, dusk-to-dawn-to-dusk, 13-movie marathon. It was intended to serve as a curtain call for Briggs, who first came to prominence hosting B-movies on The Movie Channel and TNT in the ‘80s and ‘90s. The marathon proved so popular that Shudder brought Briggs back—first for two, four-film specials, Thanksgiving Day’s Dinners of Death and December’s A Very Joe Bob Christmas—and, in March 2019, for a nine-week season of The Last Drive-In Friday night double features. The show’s hashtag, #TheLastDriveIn, trended on Twitter during each of its live premieres as fans enjoyed the show together in real time.

The Last Drive-In series will return for its second season in 2020 at a date to be announced. The Last Drive-In and Joe Bob’s Red Christmas are produced by Matt Manjourides and Justin Martell and directed by Austin Jennings.
