Slasher will return for Season 5 on Shudder

Horror anthology series Slasher will return for a fifth season on Shudder later this year.

Slasher: Ripper will premiere on the popular horror streaming service and will star Eric McCormack (Will and Grace).

The series is heading back in time to the late 19th century — 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.

McCormack will play Basil Garvey, a charismatic tycoon whose success is only rivalled by his ruthlessness, as he oversees a city on the cusp of a new century, and a social upheaval that will see its streets run red with blood.

Slasher: Ripper will begin production in the Spring.
