Shudder recently ordered a full set of season 3 scripts for the series “Creepshow,” based on George A. Romero’s iconic 1982 movie. The order came despite its second season isn’t close to being in the can yet. Season 2 of “Creepshow” was due to have started shooting in March in Atlanta. But its start was delayed by the coronavirus production shutdown which has hit many parts of North America.
