Shudder has ordered a fifth installment of Slasher. The AMC-owned streaming service is the third home for the horror series, which moved there last year after starting out on Chiller in 2016 before moving to Netflix for its following two seasons.

Each season of this Canadian-produced anthology series features a self-contained horror story set in a different location, mixing the classic slasher style of film-making with a murder mystery. The upcoming season will be titled 'Slasher: Ripper', and will be set in the late 19th century, where there's a killer stalking the streets - but instead of targeting the downtrodden like Jack the Ripper, The Widow is going after the rich and powerful.
