What day and time will 'Slasher: Ripper' release? Everything you need to know about Shudder horror series
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Along with an official release announcement, two additional posters for 'Slasher: Ripper' have also surfaced. Each series of the Canadian program is structured as an eight-episode slasher film. Other than that, it's an anthology series in which each season presents a different tale while recycling as many performers as possible. If it looks like 'American Horror Story' to you, that was an obvious influence on Slasher's author Aaron Martin.
As far as offering lots of horrors and gore, Slasher: Ripper is likely to continue in the same violent footsteps as the versions that have preceded it. In fact, the teaser proclaims that it will be ‘the most brutal season of terror yet'.

What is the plot of 'Slasher: Ripper’?
Slasher: Ripper returns the series to the final decades of the nineteenth century when a murderer stalks the dirty streets, but instead of targeting the poor and oppressed like Jack the Ripper, The Widow exacts punishment on the affluent and powerful. The only person standing in the way of this serial murderer is freshly promoted detective Kenneth Rijkers, whose unwavering faith in justice may lead to his being yet another victim of The Widow.
Who stars in 'Slasher: Ripper’?
Will & Grace's Eric McCormack will portray Basil Garvey, a vicious but charismatic businessman while Gabriel Darku is set to portray Rijkers. The remainder of the cast, however, has not been announced. That said, we can start guessing who will be in it based on the familiar characters that keep reappearing season after season. Joanne Vannicola and Paula Brancati have featured in all the earlier series. Dean McDermott, Christopher Jacot, and Jim Watson have all appeared in three seasons, with Jacot playing a key role in each. Patrick Garrow, Erin Karpluk, Paulino Nunes, Patrice Goodman, and Sabrina Grdevich have also appeared twice.
What is the buzz around 'Slasher: Ripper’?
In 'Slasher: Ripper', the protagonists will be pursued by The Widow, a killer who goes by the guise of a woman and dresses in all-black with a veil. However, it's hard to say if the killer is indeed a woman, or if it's just meant to keep viewers from guessing who they are. In this aspect, the upcoming season seems very similar to Season 2, 'Guilty Party'.
