Shudder has ended their radio silence over a fourth season of Creepshow with a great announcement: the new season will debut in October!

Ever since Shudder released the first season in 2019, fans have been begging for more of the fun horror series, which is based on George A. Romero and Stephen King’s 1982 anthology film. The original film was stylized to look like the classic EC horror comic books, and the series manages to keep that same look and feel.

During its three-season run (with a couple of specials thrown in for good measure), Creepshow has featured horror actors such as Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, David Arquette, Jeffrey Combs, Anna Camp, Barbara Crampton and Michael Rooker. The stories were penned by the likes of Joe Hill, Stephen King, Joe R. Lansdale and Greg Nicotero.

The tales run the gambit from truly terrifying to fiendishly funny, and each episode is introduced by the infamous Creep, who also provided introductions and commentary for the Creepshow movie (along with its two sequels).

Although the cast list has not been released yet, one actor definitely appears front and center in the trailer (which you can see below). Season four of Creepshow will feature none other than Tom Atkins, who appeared in horror classics like The Fog, Creepshow (the film), Halloween III: Season of the Witch, Maniac Cop and Night of the Creep. That caught my attention, so I will be tuning in!

When will season four of Creepshow debut on Shudder?

Season four of Creepshow will begin streaming on Shudder, AMC+ and AMC on Friday, October 13. You can binge the first six episodes on Shudder and AMC+, and new episodes will premiere weekly on AMC linear Fridays at 10:00 p.m. ET.

As the tagline says: “It’s the most fun you’ll ever have being scared,” and what better time to experience the fear/fun that October, right?
