Shudder previously announced details about four of season two’s segments, which will be directed by Greg Nicotero. Anna Camp and Adam Pally will star in “Shapeshifters Anonymous” Parts 1 and 2, written by Greg Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath about an unlucky soul who finds himself in need of a werewolf support group.
Keith David, Ashley Laurence, and Josh McDermitt will star in “Pesticide,” written by Frank Dietz, in which an exterminator makes an infernal bargain.
“Model Kid,” written by returning Creepshow writer John Esposito (season one’s “Night of the Paw”), is about a 12-year-old monster fan who turns to hand-built model kits to escape his unhappy reality.
Shudder stated that additional titles and directors will be announced at a later date.
Greg Nicotero serves as showrunner and executive producer of the series, which is based on George A. Romero’s iconic 1982 movie. The new season is currently in production in Atlanta, Georgia, and the six-episode second season is slated to premiere exclusively on Shudder in 2021.
