We’ve waited patiently as ‘The Creep’ has consistently teased us from the dark corners of our bedrooms, but all of the patience has finally paid off. Prior to the San Diego Comic-Con panel for the upcoming Shudder series continuation of Creepshow, moderated by Los Angeles Times’ film reporter Jen Yamato, the horror select streaming service debuted the first trailer for the new horror anthology series and announced an official release date.
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, announced the anthology revival earlier in the year and has steadily released some delicious details regarding The Creep’s (and some others) haunting return to the screen. The panel was attended by a slew of Creepshow’s actors including Giancarlo Esposito (Better Call Saul), Tricia Helfer (Lucifer), Adrienne Barbeau (1982’s Creepshow) and DJ Qualls (Supernatural), along with showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and bestselling horror author and son of the original Creepshow creator, Stephen King, Joe Hill (NOS4A2). Early on the series announced the casting of the great Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Bruce Davison (Longtime Companion, X-Men), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), David Arquette (Scream), Tobin Bell (Saw), Dana Gould (Stan Against Evil) as well as Kid Cudi (Scott Mescudi) and Big Boi (Antwan Patton). Consisting of 6 episodes and 12 scary segments, Creepshow promises even more of the most fun you could possibly have as a horror fan.
If you’ve yet to subscribe and want to see what tales of terror The Creep has for a modern audience I highly suggest you do so while you’re still very much in the dark on what’s to come from a new, but very much nostalgic, Creepshow. But the dreadful wait is not over yet. The anticipation for stories written by the likes of David J. Schow (The Crow), Josh Malerman (Birdbox), and even Stephen King himself, will need to built just a little bit longer.
Shudder announced the Creepshow series will premiere on September 26, 2019.
A young boy’s horror comic book comes to life in this anthology series of terrifying tales.
