WATCH: Season 2 Trailer for Frightening Anthology Series ‘Lore’

lore season 2

Those of us still stinging from FOX’s cancellation of The Exorcist will be pleased to know there’s another horror series carrying on the show’s spirit. The Amazon Prime Video anthology series Lore, based on the popular podcast from writer/producer Aaron Mahnke, is entering its second season—but things will look a bit different this time around. Sean Crouch, who served as an executive producer on The Exorcist, has taken the reins for season 2 of Lore, bringing several of the writing staff from the FOX series along with him. A few actors with connections to The Exorcist will also be making appearances in episodes, which is certainly good news for fans.

Season 2 of Lore promises six chilling new tales contained within their own episodes, including two original stories not previously covered in Mahnke’s podcast. Blending history with horror, Lore “explores the real-life frightening and disturbing tales that have given rise to our modern-day myths and legends.”

The trailer, replete with stunning and ominous imagery, hints at these gruesome, gory tales. If you’re curious about exactly what this season will entail, Amazon Prime Video has some intriguing glimpses at what’s to come on Lore.

Burke and Hare: In the Name of Science: Two shunned Irish immigrants in Scotland start off as grave robbers to sell the dead to doctors, but decide that creating their own inventory is much easier, and become the most prolific mass-murdering duo in history. (Stars Emmet Byrne, Emmett J. Scanlan, and Doug Bradley.)

Elizabeth Bathory: Mirror, Mirror: The aging Countess of Blood, running out of virginal peasants to drain of their youthful essence, brings in a bright-eyed noble to start a new cycle of torture and murder. (Stars Maimie McCoy, Rosalind Eleazar, and Ella Hunt.)

Hinterkaifeck: Ghosts in the Attic: In the German hinterlands, between world wars, a family goes to bed, not knowing that their killer has been living in the walls and attics of their home like a ghost, watching, waiting for his chance to strike, in one of the most famous unsolved mysteries of all time. (Stars Jürgen Prochnow, Thomas Kretschmann, and Susanne Wuest.)

Prague Clock: The Curse of the Orloj: As two clockmakers race against the curse of the Orloj, a curse that has already driven the city of Prague to madness and death with the Black Plague, these brothers will discover the price of trying to change history. (Stars Steven Berkoff, Numan Acar, and Elie Haddad.)

Mary Webster: The Witch of Hadley: A young woman, raised in a town controlled by a religious zealot, must rectify a fatal mistake before a ravenous mob hangs the Old Witch, Mary Webster, in this story set just 11 years before and 100 miles from Salem, Massachusetts. (Stars Paula Malcomson, Hebe Beardsall, and Paul Rhys.)

Jack Parsons: The Devil and the Divine: In 1922 only one person, Jack Parsons, believed that we could send a rocket into space and conjure a demon. By 1952 he had done both. But all he cared about was the Scarlet Woman he had both summoned, and lost: Marjorie Cameron. (Stars Josh Bowman and Alicia Witt.)

Lore will be available to stream on October 19th exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. Check out the trailer below!
