One Of Shudder's Most Popular Shows Is Getting Another Season
Cursed Films will return for Season 2 on the horror streaming platform next year.
As well as releasing fantastic new horror movies such as Impetigore and Host, Shudder has also made some impressive documentaries. Horror Noire is a brilliant look at Black horror over the decades, while Cursed Films is a fascinating series focusing on the legends and myths around a number of supposedly "cursed" horror movies. The show is now set to return for Season 2.
Cursed Films Season 1 focused on films such as The Omen, Poltergeist, The Exorcist, The Crow, and Twilight Zone: The Movie, all of which had cast and crew members afflicted by misfortune and tragedy. Shudder hasn't revealed what movies will feature in Season 2 yet, but it has confirmed the show will return in 2021.
In a statement, Cursed Films producer Jay Cheel said, "Filming Season 1 of Cursed Films was an amazing experience, so I'm thrilled to have the chance to interview a new group of talented filmmakers and film critics while exploring the stories behind five more legendarily ill-fated film productions. This time around we’ll be heading outside of North America for a few episodes, which will not only widen the scope of the series but offer an exciting collection of stories connected to a diverse group of movies."
Cursed Films premiered in April this year, and stands as the second most-watched show ever on Shudder, following the anthology series Creepshow. As for Creepshow, the show is also set to return in 2021. In June, showrunner Greg Nicotero revealed that since production on the second season has been postponed because of the COVID-19 pandemic, work has already begun on scripts for Season 3.
In addition, Creepshow Season 1 is also now available on Blu-ray. The Blu-ray set includes all six episodes, plus a variety of bonus features, including cast and crew interviews and audio commentaries.
