SLASHER has had an odd journey – premiering in 2016 on the long-defunct CHILLER service then moving to NETFLIX for a couple of seasons and come April it will return to SHUDDER for a second season – this one titled SLASHER: RIPPER. Got a trailer – let’s do this!
Slasher: Ripper takes the franchise back in time to the late 19th century where there’s a killer stalking the mean streets, but instead of targeting the poor and downtrodden like Jack the Ripper, The Widow is meting out justice against the rich and powerful. The only person standing in the way of this killer is the newly promoted detective, Kenneth Rijkers, whose ironclad belief in justice may wind up being yet another victim of The Widow. Slasher: Ripper returns with a two-episode premiere on Thursday, April 6 on Shudder and AMC+ with new episodes rolling out weekly on Thursdays.
