Filmmaker Mark Duplass is returning to the horror genre with a new foray into the disturbing Creep universe he created with collaborator Patrick Brice, beginning with the 2014 found-footage film. Brice and Duplass followed up with their 2017 movie Creep 2, and fans have been waiting ever since for the next chapter in the story of Duplass' on-screen serial killer persona.

Now, we finally have an update! On June 4, over six years after Creep 2, Duplass took to his social media accounts to share a cryptic teaser showing him donning the "Peachfuzz" wolf mask frequently worn by his nameless character (he went by Josef in the first movie, then Aaron in the second).

Watch the video below.

As you can see, the video gives hardly anything anyway, only serving as an announcement to confirm that more Creep is, finally, on the way.

According to a statement reported by IndieWire, Duplass and Brice have created an episodic series called The Creep Tapes, with Brice directing each installment.

In the films, Duplass' creepy killer lures in unsuspecting filmmakers and asks them to film a day in his life, only to murder them later. The Creep Tapes will show viewers what happened to the many other victims who have fallen prey to Josef/Aaron's devilish scheming.

The wait between entries has been so long because Duplass was somewhat disappointed in the sequel and didn't feel like it was "as good as it could have been," adding that he wanted to find an idea that was "super inspired" if the series were to continue and become a trilogy.

It sounds like Duplass and Brice have found the right angle, with The Creep Tapes shaping up to be a terrifying and darkly humorous addition to this growing horror franchise. The duo is currently shopping the series to buyers.

“The series is based on a collection of video tapes in the secret vault of the world’s deadliest and most socially uncomfortable serial killer, who hires his victims to film him for the day under false pretenses. Each episode exposes a new victim from one of the fabled ‘Creep Tapes,'" said Duplass in a new statement shared by the outlet.

You can revisit Creep and Creep 2 on Netflix.
