Description: Thirty years ago, in the sleepy community of Waterbury, a killer known as “The Executioner” murdered Sarah Bennett’s parents. Now Sarah and her husband Dylan have returned to town, only to find herself the centerpiece in a series of horrifying murders centered around the seven deadly sins. It seems “The Executioner” is back. But if Tom Winston – the original Executioner – is behind bars, who is the new person behind the mask? As the murders escalate, long-buried secrets are revealed, making everyone around Sarah a suspect…or a victim.  Slasher is a mystery/horror/thriller. Think Friday the 13th meets And Then There Were None. Chiller.com

Comments: Slasher is a season-long horror anthology along the lines of American Horror Story and Scream Queens and it is Chiller’s first original scripted series.

Status: (Updated 7/12/17) After hearing no information on this one for well over a year, the show’s Wikipedia entry now indicates that a second season is in the works. Apparently the website for Orangeville in Ontario, Canada indicated that filming began there on the second season of the show in May of 2017. Neither the website for Chiller nor the Super Channel (the show’s Canadian partner) has a premiere date, but I would estimate that the second season should hit the schedule later this year or early next year.
