“Eli Roth’s History of Horror” Gets Sequel, Renewed by AMC for Season 2

Just like any self-respecting horror film, Eli Roth’s History of Horror will be getting a “sequel” of its own. AMC has given an order for a six-episode second season (which will also air on the horror-themed Shudder streaming service), which will take a deeper dive into the “cinema realms of magic-weilding witches, misshapen monsters, and infamously evil youngsters” – including a look at hellish haunted houses and terrors of the flesh (body horror).

“I’m so thrilled to be continuing this historic series with AMC. In Season 1, we had the most incredible conversations with the top creators in the field who really helped fans around the world appreciate the horror genre in a new light….we look forward to going even deeper in Season 2, bringing out the A-listers to share their stories with everyone for all-time and adding more and more films to the canon. AMC is the perfect network to partner with on a passion project like this and we can’t wait to get started.”
