It was revealed by Deadline earlier today that The CW has renewed TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES for a second season.
This news comes as many networks start preparing to tackle content-creation for the fall. With production companies tackling the ins and outs of safety and prevention measures in response to COVID-19, this renewal news is a positive step from the network.
Created by writer/director/producer Vera Miao, with Guy Pooles handling the cinematography, the first season of TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES premiered on THE CW in August of 2019. It offered fans a chance to revisit the distinct and popular horror subgenre experience that tackles today’s most relevant and topical social issues.
Contemporary tales of horror and haunting for the diverse and digital age. Inspired by the viral fan fiction of two sentence horror stories, this anthology series taps into universal primal fears, filtered through the anxieties of the most connected and racially diverse generation. Despite dizzying advancements in technology, inequality, social progress, and environmental degradation…the things that haunt us are still the same.
The series is executive produced by Vera Miao (“Best Friends Forever”), Emily Wiedemann (“Creative Control”) and Chazz Carfora (“Stories From The Felt”). TWO SENTENCE HORROR STORIES is from Stage 13 in association with Warner Bros.
The featured cast of the first season was Nicole Kang (“Batwoman”) as Hana, Jim Parrack (“The Deuce”) as Ken, Aleyse Shannon (“Charmed”) as Karine, Greta Quispe (“New Amsterdam”) as Araceli, Wai Ching Ho (“The Defenders”) as Ma, and Kate Jennings (Notorious”) as Dr. Lucie.
The featured directors of the first season were Vera Miao, Tayarisha Poe, Rania Attieh & Daniel Garcia, Natalia Iyudin, and Nikyatu. Writing on the episodes were done by Vera Miao, Leon Hendrix III, C.S. McMullen, Pornsak Pichetshote, Stephanie Adams-Santos, and Sehaj Sethi.
