Amazon announced today it has greenlit a second season of the critically-acclaimed Prime Original series Lore. Season One of the supernatural series, adapted from Aaron Mahnke’s award-winning podcast of the same name, is now available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories. Sean Crouch (The Exorcist, Numb3rs) is taking over show runner duties for season two.
From Executive Producers Ben Silverman (The Office), Howard T. Owens (Killing Kennedy), Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead), Brett-Patrick Jenkins (Face Off), Jon Halperin and Mark Mannucci (A Year in Space), Lore explores the real-life frightening and disturbing tales that give rise to modern-day myths and legends. Season two will feature new tales from the podcast, as well as original stories not yet available in podcast form, and will star new cast members. The hybrid series will continue to feature narration, archive footage, and animation to complement the filmed segments.
“Customers loved the first season of Lore for its unique blend of narrative and documentary storytelling, and we’re excited to give them another season of this suspenseful hybrid series,” said Heather Schuster, Head of Unscripted, Amazon Originals. “Sean brings great experience in the supernatural genre, and we’re excited for him to help us tell even more frightening and visually captivating stories.”
“As a fan of documentaries and horror, Lore resonates with me on so many levels,” said Hurd. “Season Two is shaping up to be scarier and even more compelling and unnerving than our first one!”
“With Sean Crouch at the helm, Lore is set to be scarier than ever. In Season Two, we will explore global, real-life horror stories that make this series unlike anything else on television. We are thrilled to be back on Prime Video,” said Silverman and Owens.
“From monsters to the macabre, Season Two is not only the stuff of nightmares…it’s real,” said Jenkins.
Here’s what customers have been saying:
- “The show does a great job weaving together the animation, narration, dramatization, and documentary footage all into one episode.”
- “This is an amazing documentary series for any horror/mystery fan!”
- “One of my favorite shows in a long time.”
- “Amazon and Aaron Mahnke have made a great podcast a great TV show!!”
