Earlier this year, Syfy announced that Channel Zero, an anthology series based on online horror stories known as "creepypastas," had been renewed for third and fourth seasons. While the first season brought Kris Straub's unnerving Candle Cove to life on the small screen, season 2 of the series—premiering in October—will adapt Brian Russell's NoEnd House for television. The third season's source material is currently unknown, but the first casting details have now been revealed.

Deadline reports that Brandon Scott (Blair Witch, Guerrilla) and Holland Roden (MTV's Teen Wolf series) are set to star in the third season of Channel Zero, which is expected to premiere sometime in 2018. According to Deadline, Scott will play "Officer Luke Vanczyk, a young but already jaded cop, living in the shadow of his father, the Chief of Police. Luke’s world-weary exterior hides a fierce commitment to justice, and a deep love for his troubled community."

Roden, meanwhile, will portray "Zoe Woods, Alice’s older sister, a sharp, tough young woman whose struggles with mental illness have worn her down over the years. She hates that her younger sister has to take care of her and she’d give anything to go back to the way things used to be."

We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated on all things Channel Zero, which is executive produced by Nick Antosca. In the meantime, what creepypasta would you like to see come to life on the anthology series?
