Shudder announced today that Cursed Films will be returning for a second season. Jay Cheel's docu-series will return to explore the stories and myths behind more alleged cursed films. It comes as no surprise as Season One went down incredibly well with fans worldwide as they examined the so called curse behind The Omen, Poltergeist, The Exorcist, The Crow and Twilight Zone: The Movie.
“Season one of Cursed Films captivated audiences with its thoughtful but unflinching exploration of the often tragic events surrounding some of history’s most notorious productions, becoming an instant hit for us and earning rave reviews from both critics and viewers. Since its debut, the number one question we’ve been asked is: Will there be more, and how soon? We’re delighted to say that we’re partnering with Jay once again for a second season of Cursed Films that will be even bigger and better than the first!" - Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager.
Season Two is now in production and is set to premiere in 2021. This season will turn its focus to a new set of 'cursed' films whose titles will be revealed at a later date. Jay Cheel has returned to write and direct again with Jonas Prupas and Courtney Dobbins as executive producers.
“Filming season one of Cursed Films was an amazing experience, so I’m thrilled to have the chance to interview a new group of talented filmmakers and film critics while exploring the stories behind five more legendarily ill-fated film productions. This time around we’ll be heading outside of North America for a few episodes, which will not only widen the scope of the series but offer an exciting collection of stories connected to a diverse group of movies." - Writer/Director Jay Cheel.
"We’re thrilled to be on board for the second season of Cursed Films and to be working with Jay and Shudder. We can’t wait to dive into the fascinating stories behind these films and see where Jay’s bold vision and creative approach takes us this season." - Executive producers Jonas Prupas & Courtney Dobbins.
I don't know about you but this is the best news I think we've all had in a while. The first season was fantastic, I cannot wait to see what else they have to offer in Season Two.
