Well fans of the four film series CRITTERS franchise have a new entry to look forward to.
CRITTERS: A New Binge is coming exclusively to Shudder streaming service and will be an 8 part short series produced under Warner Bros. Television Group’s digital studio Blue Ribbon Content. The 1 minute trailer was just released and looks like the franchise is going full on camp, along with over the top acting and goofy death scenes.
Here’s what the studios Executive Vice President Peter Girardi had to say about bringing the franchise back to fans:
“It’s been more than 30 years since the Critters first landed on the big screen, and we’re incredibly proud to bring this cult classic franchise back to fans. Shudder is the perfect platform for this fun, scary new take on everyone’s favorite, furry extraterrestrial threat. We are committed to delivering Shudder members the best horror content available and this time we are also bringing the laughs.”
In the series we see the CRITTERS return to earth while once again being pursued by intergalactic bounty hunters. The furry creatures soon cross paths with a high-schooler named Christopher, played by Joey Morgan (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), along with his love interest Dani (Stephi Chin-Salvo, iZombie) and his buddy Charlie (Bzhaun Rhoden, Van Helsing).
The show is written and executive produced by Jordan Rubin, Jon Kaplan and Al Kaplan, the group behind the horror-comedy film Zombeavers.
