Shudder is doing its part to make sure that your winter night are spent wrapped up in a blanket, with your feet no where near where anything under the couch can grab you. The AMC Networks premium video streaming service specializing in thrillers, suspense, and horror has announced a premiere date for their international horror-thriller series Black Lake; and the second season premiere date for detective mystery-thriller series Jordskott.
Along with the premiere dates, Variety also has exclusive overview on both series directly from Shudder:
Jordskott Season 2 (US and Canada on Jan. 18) sees the return of tough police detective Eva Thornblad (Moa Gammel) in the Nordic noir series. Eva returns to her old job in Stockholm in an attempt to put the haunting events that occurred in Silverhojd behind her and begin a new chapter. However, the discovery of a mutilated corpse floating beneath the ice of a suburban lake leads her to believe she is not yet done with her past. The series is distributed by ITV Studios Global Entertainment.
Black Lake will premiere on Shudder on Dec. 21 in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Germany and Austria. It was the most viewed series when broadcast on MTG’s free-TV channel TV3 in 2016. The series tells the mysterious tale of Black Lake, a remote and neglected ski resort which has been closed for years, having been the scene of a horrific crime years prior. Johan (Filip Berg) invites his friends to the abandoned resort, with an idea of reopening it. They are soon gripped by fear, as a series of disturbing events lead to danger, questions on who can be trusted, and ultimately who will survive. The series is produced by Jarowskij, a Banijay Group company.
2017 was a strong year for Shudder, with an international programming slate that included French series Beyond the Walls; German series The Valley; and French/English series Missions, which will premiere its second season some time in 2018.
“With a passion for genre across provocative thrillers, suspense entertainment and horror, we’re delighted to expand Shudder’s offering of compelling foreign language genre series. Following its huge success in Sweden, ‘Black Lake’ takes a fresh and ingenious approach to Scandi Noir, while ‘Jordskott’ offers an alternative take on the crime drama phenomenon with a captivating second season. The Shudder team is excited to bring these two fantastic series to our members.”
