Amazon’s original series Lore will return for a second season. The Amazon Prime show will head into production on season two in April and will be guided by new showrunner Sean Crouch (The Exorcist). Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (Killing Kennedy), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off), Jon Halperin and Mark Mannucci (A Year in Space) are on board as executive producers.
The series is adapted from Aaron Mahnke’s popular podcast which debuted in 2015. Mahnke’s Monstrous Creatures, the first of three planned books in The World of Lore trilogy, arrived in stores in October 2017.
“Customers loved the first season of Lore for its unique blend of narrative and documentary storytelling, and we’re excited to give them another season of this suspenseful hybrid series,” stated Heather Schuster, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. “Sean brings great experience in the supernatural genre, and we’re excited for him to help us tell even more frightening and visually captivating stories.”
“As a fan of documentaries and horror, Lore resonates with me on so many levels,” said executive producer Gale Anne Hurd. “Season two is shaping up to be scarier and even more compelling and unnerving than our first one!”
“With Sean Crouch at the helm, Lore is set to be scarier than ever. In season two, we will explore global, real-life horror stories that make this series unlike anything else on television. We are thrilled to be back on Prime Video,” stated executive producers Ben Silverman and Howard T. Owens.
The Plot: Lore explores the real-life frightening and disturbing tales that give rise to modern-day myths and legends. Season two will feature new tales from the podcast, as well as original stories not yet available in podcast form, and will star new cast members. The hybrid series will continue to feature narration, archive footage and animation to complement the filmed segments.
