AMC Pushes Back NOS4A2 Season 2 Premiere, Extends Creepshow Run

AMC is making some slight adjustments to their upcoming slate of spring and summer horror, so make sure to adjust your "scare cards" accordingly. The second season premiere of NOS4A2 is being moved from it's original June 1 premiere to Sunday, June 21, at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT, but will still be simulcast on BBC America. The first season of Shudder's horror anthology Creepshow is seeing its stay extended. Set to hit AMC's airwaves on Monday, May 4, at 10 pm ET, the series will now air over six consecutive Mondays (through June 8). Originally, the first season of the horror streamer's series was set to air back-to-back episodes over the course of three weeks, wrapping up on May 18.

In NOS4A2 season 2, Vic (Ashleigh Cummings) remains committed to destroying Manx (Zachary Quinto) once and for all. Forced to face his own mortality, Manx is desperate to enact revenge on Vic by setting his sights on the one person who means the most to Vic: her eight-year-old son, Wayne. Manx's quest for horrific revenge will send him on a high-speed collision course with Vic that will force both of them to confront past sins, and only one of them can walk away from it alive.
