Geeknation Renews “HOLLISTON” For Third Season, Ariescope Original Programming Now LiveMovies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
As fans of Adam Green and Joe Lynch’s podcast THE MOVIE CRYPT can tell you, 2014 was not the best year for the pair of fright filmmakers. After the dissolution of the independently produced show’s network, FEARnet, and the tragic death of HOLLISTON castmember Dave “Oderus Urungus” Brockie, HOLLISTON was left in limbo while Green and Lynch turned their attention to finishing their films DIGGING UP THE MARROW and EVERLY, respectively. However, after a long time of hints and teases, fans of HOLLISTON will be elated to know that the show will indeed return for a third season on Geeknation’s digital platform as exclusively revealed by Entertainment Weekly.
That’s right: Green, Lynch and fellow cast members Laura Ortiz, Corri English and Dee Snider will all be returning for the third season of the horror-centric sitcom, although few details are available about the show’s return aside from the show’s 10-episode return order. The show is slated to begin production in early 2016, with the full season to premiere on Geeknation’s digital platforms later on in the year.
But for those who can’t wait until next year for your dose of Green and co., you’re in luck as Green’s Ariescope Pictures has debuted a trio of original short-form series, which you can find here. The series includes Adam Green’s SCARY SLEEPOVER, which debuted earlier this year and features appearances from fright icons like Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Tom Holland, Zach Galligan, Bill Moseley and more. Other series include the horror confessional show HORRIFIED (hosted by HOLLISTON’s Corri English) and Ben Rock’s 20 SECONDS TO LIVE, which feature Graham Skipper (ALMOST HUMAN), Derek Mears (FRIDAY THE 13TH), Laura Napoli (DEAD RISING) and more in short skits centering around sudden death.
