AMC announced today the renewal of Eli Roth's History of Horror for a third season of six hour-long episodes, set to return later this year.
The series has brought together masters of horror - the storytellers and the stars who define the genre, including Stephen King, Jordan Peele and Quentin Tarantino, among many others, to explore its biggest themes and reveal the inspirations and struggles behind its past and present.
"I'm beyond thrilled to continue this incredible deep dive into horror history with all of these legends, rising stars and fans," Roth said in a statement. "I'm so thankful to all those who have to come together to celebrate and catalog the genre we love in a show that will play for generations to come. We've had the most amazing discussions, and so many older films are being rediscovered through the show and its accompanying podcast. Thank you to AMC, Shudder, my incredible producers, and all the contributors and fans who supported us. We want to make Season 3 our deepest and darkest yet."
The upcoming third season will feature episodes entitled "Sinister Psychics," "Infections," "Mad Scientists," "Apocalyptic Horror," "Sequels That Don't Suck" and "Holiday Horror," each of which will take viewers on a chilling exploration of how horror has evolved through the eras and impacted society and its biggest fears through key horror sub-genres.
Eli Roth's History of Horror 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). Executive producers are Eli Roth, Kurt Sayenga, Steven Michaels, Jodi Flynn, Joseph Freed and Allison Berkley.
