Canadian horror series Slasher slashes its way onto Shudder

Canadian horror series Slasher has been presented by three different networks in its three-season run, and now the fourth season will premiere on Shudder.

Shudder has several different original series on its horror movie streaming service, and Slasher should fit in nicely. Much like American Horror Story, it’s a series that features a different story (and killer) each season.

The first season of Slasher (The Executioner) debuted on now-defunct Chiller in March of 2016, and premiered a month later on Canada’s Super Channel. It centered on a murderer known as The Executioner, who was killing residents in a Canadian town.

Season two premiered on Netflix and was titled Guilty Party. It told the story of former camp counselors who returned to the campground where they had committed a murder. Their intention was to move the body, but they discovered that it was missing. Soon, they were being killed off one by one, by an unknown killer.

Netflix renewed Slasher for a third season, titled Solstice. During the summer solstice, a group of neighbors who failed to save a murder victim a year earlier are being hunted and killed.

Now Shudder has announced that they are teaming up with Shaftesbury on an eight-episode fourth season of Slasher, set to run in 2021. The season will be titled Slasher: Flesh & Blood, and will introduce us to a wealthy and dysfunctional family who are getting together on an island for a reunion. Bad feelings from the past are amplified when a masked killer shows up with the intent of murdering everyone.

Many former cast members from prior seasons of the series will be returning, including Paula Brancati, Jefferson Brown, Sabrina Grdevich, Patrice Goodman and Christopher Jacot. There is, however, a new, very notable addition: horror legend David Cronenberg (Scanners, Videodrome, The Fly) will also be joining Slasher: Flesh & Blood for its fourth outing.

Slasher: Flesh & Blood will also be available on Shudder Australia and New Zealand in 2021, and will run later on Shudder Canada, Ireland and UK.
