Season 1 of “Holliston” comes out on DVD and Blu-ray on Tuesday, October 9th – that’s a week from today. It features all 6 extended-length episodes as well as over 90 minutes of bonus content including cast commentary tracks for each episode, the half-hour preview television special, deleted scenes, a gag reel, 7 behind the scenes featurettes, and all 6 full-length “Road to Holliston” promos (the 60 second versions aired on TV and on-line in the weeks leading up to the series premiere last April.) Guest stars in Season 1 include: John Landis, Seth Green, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Tony Todd, Bill Moseley, Derek Mears, Ray Wise, Parry Shen, and Brian Posehn.
In true “Downton Abbey” fashion, an hour-long Christmas Special will air on FEARnet in December and then hit FEARnet On-Demand and iTunes the next morning. Season 2 of the show, which will feature 10 slightly shorter half-hour episodes, has now completed production and will begin airing in the Spring. Guest stars include Sid Haig, David Naughton, Kane Hodder, Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Bailee Madison, James Gunn, Darren Bousman, Rileah Vanderbilt, Derek Mears, Andy Nyman, Paul Solet, and Caitlin Upton.

When I first heard about “Holliston” I wasn’t sure what to expect. I didn’t know if it was going to be an ongoing meta commentary about the careers of Joe Lynch (director of Wrong Turn 2 the upcoming Knights Of Badassdom and the even more upcoming Everly) and Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen) or if it was going to be some weird “Family Guy”-esque string of horror non-sequiturs. Turns out it’s neither. As you may know by now, it’s 100% a sitcom. Not a documentary style half-hour comedy like “Parks And Rec” or a single-cam show like “Community”, but an old-school three-camera proscenium sitcom taped in front of an audience.
And it’s first season was enough of a hit that the cast and crew are prepping Season 2. In fact, tonight at 7pm PST / 10pm EST, the cast of Holliston will be conducting a live video chat from Season 2 rehearsal. Fans can chat directly with Adam Green, Joe Lynch, Corri English, and Laura Ortiz as well as Season 2 director Sean Becker and cinematographer Will Barratt as they show you an intimate look inside the ArieScope studio rehearsal space, answer your chat room questions, and discuss the upcoming second season which begins filming in just a few short weeks. Simply go to FEARnet to join in and take part in this fan event.
