If you were a fan of season one and two of Eli Roth’s History of Horror on AMC, then I have some exciting news!
Television network AMC announced that Eli Roth’s History of Horror has been renewed for a third season, with six hour-long episodes. There is no official premiere date and time as of right now but it is slated to return later this year. History of Horror has had its fair share of star writers in the past including Quentin Tarantino, Stephen King, and Jordan Peele, just to name a few. Executive producer Eli Roth says:
“I’m beyond thrilled to continue this incredible deep dive into horror history with all of these legends, rising stars and fans. I’m so thankful to all those who have to come together to celebrate and catalog the genre we love in a show that will play for generations to come. We’ve had the most amazing discussions, and so many older films are being rediscovered through the show and its accompanying podcast. Thank you to AMC, Shudder, my incredible producers, and all the contributors and fans who supported us. We want to make Season 3 our deepest and darkest yet.”
Season two of History of Horror had a lot of success, with 6 million viewers. The second season also featured stars such as horror icon Rob Zombie, Elijah Wood, Rachel True, Megan Fox, Greg Nicotero, Edgar Wright, and Bill Hader. The upcoming season will have episodes names “Infections,” “Sequels That Don’t Suck,” “Apocalyptic Horror,” “Mad Scientists,” “Holiday Horror,” and “Sinister Psychics.” Each episode takes viewers on a journey of the horror genre and its growth and impact on society over the years.
