EXCLUSIVE: Two weeks into its freshman run, FEARnet’s first original series Holliston has been renewed for a second season. The offbeat, 1980s-throwback horror-comedy, starring genre filmmakers Adam Green (Hatchet 1 & 2) and Joe Lynch (Knights Of Badassdom), will return in summer 2013. Created by Green and produced by ArieScope Pictures, Holliston marked the first original production for the linear network. (FEARnet has done original digital series for the Web.) “Holliston resonates with both genre junkies and more mainstream comedy fans alike, making our first push into original programming a successful attempt for diversifying our schedule and showing the breadth of our audience,” said FEARnet GM and president Peter Block. Returning alongside Green and Lynch for Season 2 are co-stars Laura Ortiz; Corri English, the lead singer of Brokedown Cadillac; Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider; and Oderus Urungus, lead singer of GWAR. Green said he has been “overjoyed” by the audience’s reaction to the show. “It’s amazing to watch the characters be embraced so quickly and to see fans quoting it on Twitter, Facebook and at conventions around the country,” he said. Holliston premiered April 3 and airs as part of FEARnet’s Twisted Comedy Block. Its third episode airs tonight. Here’s a preview:
