What stories will be featured in Creepshow Season 3?
As for the stories you can expect this season, at Comic Con 2021, Nicotero revealed that they would be adapting a Joe Hill story called “Mums” and several original stories. One, “Skeletons in the Closet,” is about a prop collector that digs up skeletons used in movies. It’s loosely based on the legends that Poltergeist and Dawn of the Dead used real skeletons as props.
Other episodes include “Meter Reader,” a nod to The Exorcist and “The Last Subaraya,” which is about a man who discovers a rare art painting and inadvertently releases a demonic presence.
Clips shared at Comic Con also featured snippets of “Drug Traffic,” starring Rooker as a border patrol agent who has a monstrous night on the job with the creature in question inspired by a Southeast Asian legend.
“Queen Bee” centers on a group of kids fans of a Beyoncé-type singer who gets pregnant. They try to infiltrate the hospital to get photos they can sell to the tabloids and get more than they bargained for.
According to the outlet, Creepshow Season 2 will also make its linear premiere on AMC starting on September 6.
Creepshow Season 3 premieres on September 23, exclusively on Shudder.
