New ‘Creepshow’ Anthology Series Coming To Shudder
Fans of the iconic 1982 horror anthology will want to subscribe to Shudder soon as the genre streaming service has greenlit a Creepshow TV series that will debut sometime in 2019. The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero will supervise the show’s creative elements, executive produce, and direct the new series, according to Entertainment Weekly.
“Creepshow is one of the most beloved and iconic horror anthologies from two masters of the genre, George A. Romero and Stephen King,” Shudder general manager Craig Engler said in a statement to EW. “We’re thrilled to continue their legacy with another master of horror, Greg Nicotero, as we bring a new Creepshow TV series exclusively to Shudder members.”
The original classic, which spawned two sequels, feature segments written by Stephen King and directed by the late George A. Romero. King himself even started in in the anthology.
The new Creepshow series will debut next year with each episode telling original stories with a different filmmaker at the helm. Nicotero will direct the first episode. So far, there is no word if King will return to write or star in any series segment. We can only hope someone has started those talks.
