Shudder is producing a new season of its Slasher horror anthology series, and it will be titled Slasher: Flesh & Blood. The next installment of the series will consist of eight episodes and horror movie icon David Cronenberg has joined the cast.
Slasher: Flesh & Blood follows “a wealthy but dysfunctional family gathering for a reunion on a secluded island. Their old wounds and competitive rivalries flare up when the family realizes a masked killer is on the island, intent on cruelly picking them off one by one.”
Craig Engler, Shudder’s general manager said in a statement:
“Slasher is clever, bloody, scary and fun, and adding David Cronenberg to the mix will take this new installment of the series to the next level. We couldn’t be more excited to work with Aaron Martin and the team over at Shaftesbury to bring Slasher: Flesh and Blood to Shudder members.”
Shaftesbury Chairman & CEO Christina Jennings said:
“We are so thrilled that Slasher will be brought back to life on Shudder, We know the fans of the show weren’t ready to say goodbye, so we are eager to bring them the goriest, scariest chapter of this anthology yet.”
David Kines, President Hollywood Suite, added:
“The Slasher series overdelivers on good old-fashioned gore, horror and fun with fast pacing and exceptional casting. We are very excited to throw our support behind the series and resurrect it for another bone-chilling season.”
David Cronenberg will join cast members from the previous seasons including Paula Brancati, Jefferson Brown, Patrice Goodman, Sabrina Grdevich, and Christopher Jacot. Some of the new actors joining the series include Rachael Crawford (Heartland), Jeananne Goosen (The Walking Dead), Sydney Meyer (Departure), and Alex Ozerov (The Americans).
Slasher: Flesh & Blood will stream exclusively on horror platform Shudder and production is underway now in Ontario, Canada.
