The Walking Dead’s Josh McDermitt signs on to appear in Creepshow season 2

Greg Nicotero’s Creepshow set records when it debuted on AMC’s Shudder, a horror streaming service with some of the creepiest content around. Nicotero, of course, is the makeup and FX guru whose vision of the undead brought the walkers to life on The Walking Dead. Now, Nicotero’s TWD buddy Josh McDermitt is joining him for the second season of Creepshow, which is set to begin production soon.

Creepshow is based on George A. Romero’s 1982 movie that had audiences thrilled and developed a cult following over the years. In Nicotero’s capable hands, the show has enjoyed an incredible run on Shudder in its first season and there’s no question that the cast and crew are eager to begin production after everything shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“I’ve never been happier to get behind the camera as I am today,” said Nicotero in AMC’s press release. “After missing our shoot date in March by just over 48 hours, season 2 of Creepshow hits the ground running as cameras begin to roll. The cast and crew have a level of excitement and enthusiasm I’ve never seen before and it’s inspiring. So many of us in the entertainment industry have been waiting for the day we can begin to do what we do best—to have some fun together creating new worlds, new adventures and new thrills.”

The Walking Dead’s McDermitt is joining the cast in season 2 along with Anna Camp, Keith David, Adam Pally and Ashley Laurence. Not only that, but Nicotero will be behind the camera for several episodes in season 2, which is always a pleasure. Nicotero is responsible for some of the biggest episodes of The Walking Dead, and he has an eye for detail that sends fans searching for his signature Easter Eggs.

Here’s a teaser of what to expect from McDermitt’s episode:

"Ashley Laurence (Hellraiser) and Josh McDermitt (The Walking Dead) will star in “Pesticide,” written by Frank Dietz (I Hate Kids), in which an exterminator makes an infernal bargain"

One of the best things about anthology series like Creepshow is that they allow for a revolving door of cast members to come in for an episode. Season 1 saw TWD’s Cailey Fleming slay in an episode that featured an appropriately creepy dollhouse.

We can’t wait to see what Nicotero has in store for McDermitt in Creepshow season 2, and we’re thrilled that the show is back in production. Now it’s time to wait patiently for the premiere…
