We all know and love his character as ‘Bishop James Greenleaf’ on the hit TV series on OWN, Greenleaf and now, we get to catch the Emmy award-winning actor Keith David, as he makes a switch to the horror genre as he joins the cast of AMC’s streaming service Shudder, in the popular series, Creepshow.
Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, announced yesterday from the Television Critics’ Association (TCA) Press Tour the renewal of the hit anthology series Creepshow for a third season of six episodes, set to premiere later this year.
David, who comes from a theater background said in that distinct voice on the Zoom panel…
“I started my career in horror. I’m glad to find a home on Creepshow.”
In its first season, Creepshow smashed records for Shudder in number of viewers, new subscriber sign-ups and total minutes streamed to become the most watched program in Shudder history, followed by a successful run on AMC. The show was a hit with critics as well as fans as one of 2019’s best-reviewed new genre series, with a 97% Fresh rating on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes®. The successful first season was followed by two specials in 2020, October’s A Creepshow Animated Special featuring the voices of Kiefer Sutherland (24) and Joey King (The Kissing Booth) and December’s A Creepshow Holiday Special starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project).
