Following a horror anthology format similar to American Horror Story, Channel Zero adapts popular CreepyPastas, breathing life into some the internet’s most infamous horror tales. The first season, inspired by Kris Straub’s Candle Cove, told the story of a fictional television show / hallucination of the same name. Season 2, inspired by Brian Russell’s Creepypasta No-End House took viewers through a haunted house that upended and infiltrated the character’s lives.
Fans of the show will be happy to know that while season 3 has not been aired, season 4 is already currently in production. On a recent episode of the Shockwaves Podcast, creator Nick Antosca revealed that Butcher’s Block nearly finished ahead of the premiere of No End House. Constantly looking ahead, the team behind Channel Zero never stops so that you always have fresh content to feed your blood thirsty appetite.
