It was announced today that Crypt TV's The Birch has been picked up for a second season on Facebook Watch. The good news comes seven months after the horror drama wrapped its freshman run on the social media giant's VOD platform.

Based on the 2016 short film of the same name, the series follows high school loner Evie Grayson, who finds herself in over her head after witnessing a murder by a group of local drug dealers deep in the woods. After being threatened into silence, Evie decides to take the dealers down at any cost - even if it means summoning a blood-thirsty monster that comes with perils of its own.

10 episodes have been ordered for Season 2 of The Birch, down from the 14 that comprised Season 1. Look for a return in 2021.
