Once again horror is coming back to The CW this Sunday for the third season of Two Sentence Horror Stories, and thanks to the network we have images from the first two episodes. The series began with the premiere of its' short anthologies on a digital platform in 2017, and then it moved to CW shortly after for a full season and a place to call home. The show explores the primal fears within and often the social fears that come along with that. Taking apart and dissecting the horrific parts of society in creative and terrifying ways, Two Sentence Horror Stories is taking the genre to network television and reviving the anthology in every episode, not just every season. Dig these first-look images and episode breakdowns from our friends over at The CW:
