It might just not be the best day for Slasher fans. Season 4 is sure in progress. But in the latest development, it is found that Slasher Season 4 will no longer air on Netflix. Here’s what we know about streaming.
Slasher Series Run Through:
Slasher is a Canadian anthology horror TV series. Aaron Martin is the creator of the same. Initially, it premiered on Chiller followed by Super Channel. Netflix finally gained the licensing rights for the second season in January 2017.
Each season has a new masked killer who has an unknown motive for killing their victims.
Season 1 was titled The Executioner and debuted in 2016. Season 2, Guilty Party, aired in 2017. And season 3, labeled Solstice, screened in 2019. And now, the new season, season 4, is named Slasher: Flesh & Blood.
What is known about Season 4?
Flesh and Blood is a reunion season. It “follows a wealthy but dysfunctional family gathering for a reunion on a secluded island. Their old wounds and competitive rivalries flare up when the family realizes a masked killer is on the island, intent on cruelly picking them off one by one.”
No additional plot points have been disclosed. Fans should expect a release in Fall 2020. The release date has not been officially declared till now.
They also listed the provisional filming dates for the series. In fact, filming is currently scheduled to start out next week (at the time of publishing) from October 26th, 2020 to February 11th, 2021. Filming is taking place in Toronto.
Where to watch it?
On October 24th, 2020 we spotted a production listing that confirmed a brand-new season of the show was in development. Notably, that production listing didn’t include Netflix as one of the stakeholders.
Here’s the real question since Netflix no longer has the licensing rights. Shudder, has reportedly, acquired the streaming rights for Slasher Season 4.
For anyone who does not know about Shudder, it is an American video-on-demand service network. It specifically features horror, thrillers, and supernatural thrillers. It has an expanded service system to Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand as well.
Does this mean Netflix will also lose the first three seasons? Or will Netflix share the rights of Slasher with Shudder?
