AMC wants more of AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror. The network confirmed Eli Roth’s series has been renewed for a second season which will also air on AMC’s horror streaming service, Shudder.

According to AMC, the first season attracted six million viewers and spawned a podcast that hit the #2 spot on the TV & Film genre chart. Season two will consist of six episodes that will feature monsters, evil children, witches, body horror, houses of hell, and “Eli’s Terrifying Twelve.”

“I’m so thrilled to be continuing this historic series with AMC. In season one, 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,” said Roth, director of The Green Inferno, Cabin Fever, and Hostel. “From Quentin Tarantino to Jordan Peele to Stephen King and Jamie Lee Curtis, everyone shared stories about creating the fright masterpieces that still chill us to this day. What’s most exciting about this show is that the fans get to understand these films on a much deeper level, and many go back and rediscover older films they may not have seen for years or missed entirely.”

Roth added, “We look forward to going even deeper in season two, 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.”

Eli Roth’s History of Horror is executive produced by Roth, Kurt Sayenga, Steven Michaels, Jonathan Koch, Joseph Freed, and Allison Berkley. The series is produced by The Content Group (ESPN’s 30 For 30, Nat Geo’s Breakthrough) and Marwar Junction Productions (Disney +’s Earth to Ned, BET’s Murder in the Thirst).
