A small screen horror bonanza could be on the way.

Not content with reactivating his music career and plotting his very first live performances, John Carpenter will reportedly be back behind the camera soon to start work on not one but four TV shows.

Carpenter’s wife and co-producer Kim Carpenter revealed the plans on the Killer POV podcast, as Bloody Disgusting reports.

“Right now, there’s four series waiting to go to network,” she said. “As far as I’m concerned, we’ll do all of them. I mean, they’re great, and they’re different from anything that’s out there, and they again push the boundaries of what’s horror.

The horror master himself will be directing the pilot episodes before settling in as an executive producer for the remaining episodes, she added. “There’s sci-fi, there’s horror, there’s one that I guess would be [a] sci fi-horror futuristic kind of thing. They’re all across the board. I think they’ll fulfil what people expect out of him by also being unpredictable.”

Carpenter will make his live debut at next year’s ATP Iceland, followed by two Halloween shows in the UK – so only a year to wait.
