As the summer begins to wind down and the air begins to get colder, the holiday season slowly begins to creep upon us faster than most can anticipate. With four of the biggest holidays of the year coming in the span of just two months, there is something for virtually everybody to smile about. The first of those four will be the most sinister of the bunch, but for that same reason it’s among many people’s favorite time of the year: Halloween. While it contrasts starkly with the other holidays that take place throughout the winter, Halloween provides its proponents with the opportunity to tap into the dark and mysterious more than they typically would and embrace the peculiar. With the holidays rapidly approaching, Hollywood is also gearing up to celebrate with a variety of holiday themed projects in their typical fashion. Among those is a relatively new series that has been making waves since it debuted a few years ago, and the official trailer for the third season of Creepshow is just in time for Halloween.
First debuting on Shudder in September 2019, Creepshow is an anthology series that serves as both a continuation of the 1982 film and an adaptation of a comic book series of the same name. With each episode serving to highlight a different menacing story, Creepshow has aired over a dozen episodes thus far with each receiving considerable acclaim. Thus, it is no surprise that the next season of Creepshow is seemingly much closer than anybody expected with the official trailer for season 3 being unveiled earlier this week. Coming just a few short months after the most recent episode aired in April, the trailer bounces around in dramatic fashion to highlight the twelve new episodes that make up the upcoming third season that range from demons to zombies and just about everything in between. That trailer can be seen below, and the third season of Creepshow is set to premiere on September 23rd.
It is safe to say that the entertainment industry is experiencing something akin to a modern day renaissance as a direct byproduct of streaming. As the way new projects are distributed changes, so does the means by which they are produced and the genre of horror is no exception to that. The Shudder platform has been established specifically to distribute works of the genre and subsequently highlights how streaming has created space for everyone essentially. Creepshow is just one of several projects serving to redefine the space right now, and the next season of the series can be seen in a few short weeks.
