What is the story of Slasher?
Let’s know something about the story of Slasher. The series is centered around a masked killer. A killer who is known by nobody and whose motive for killing innocent people is known by none. Here lies the catch of the show. When you see people getting killed by some killer who is obscure to everybody, that gives you the chills. This is exactly what makes Slasher unique. Since this show is an anthology, unlike other shows which have a continuous storyline throughout the seasons, every season of the show revolves around different stories but the catch remains the same: the unmasked serial killer.
The 2016 season of the show, “The Executioner”, dealt with the couple Sarah Benett and her husband Dylan. It was in Sarah’s childhood home in fictitious Waterbury, Canada where the story began. During the Halloween of 1988, her parents were murdered in the same house. There was a series of copycat murders which were all discovered to be at the hands of “The Executioner”.
In the second season of the show, “Guilty Party”, the murder of Talvinder Gill by a group of former summer camp counselors was the focal point. The story took flight when the body vanished from the spot where it was hidden.
“Solstice”, the third season, focused on the murder of Kit Jennings: sex and a drug addict. Kit was murdered by someone using a “Durid” costume in front of an apartment complex during the summer solstice. It became terrifying when exactly after a year any person related to the case of Kit Jennings started to get murdered by someone in the same costume.
The most recent season of the show, “Flesh & Blood” revolved around a wealthy but problematic family reunion on a secluded island. The presence of a masked killer on the same island who intended on killing them one by one made everything way more problematic and haphazard for the already dysfunctional family.
What can we expect in Slasher season 5?
Even if we do not know very much about what the fifth season is going to encompass, there is a basic structure of the show that has been made conspicuous to us. The fifth season of the show is going to be named “Ripper” and, as mentioned earlier, is speculated to be released this year, 2023. This new season of the show will make us go back in time to the last 19th century.
Here the killer is somewhat different. The Widow, instead of killing off the poor like Jack The Ripper, will be seen targeting the rich and powerful, people on the higher stairs of the ladder of society. Will this be a way of serving justice? We will have to wait for the release of season 5 to get our answers to this question. However, Kenneth Rijkers, the new detective, will be hindering the killer from playing out their role. How will their sense of justice for Rijkers help the trajectory of the show? We will have to be patient and wait and watch.
A charismatic and ruthless business tycoon, Basil Garvey, will also be witnessed to be in this chain of events of the new season. Is Garvey having a hand in the murders? Yet another question that we will hopefully get answers to soon.
Whom can we expect in Slasher season 5?
Until now Eric McCormack from Will &Grace will certainly be seen in the role of Basil Garvey. Since this series is an anthology horror, it has a new cast for every season owing to the different stories. Season 5 will also see new faces. Unfortunately, we do not have any insight into the new cast of Slasher season 5 as of now. Nevertheless, since the fifth season of the show has already been confirmed, we can speculate to meet the cast members soon in 2023.
The new season is going to be produced by Shaftesbury with Jennings, Thomas P. Vitale, Scott Garvie, Aaron Martin, Adam Macdonald, and Ian Carpenter serving as executive producers.
In “The Executioner”, Katie McGrath acted as Sarah Bennett, and Brandon Jay McLaren was seen in the role of Dylan Bennett. “Guilty Party” saw Leslie Hope as Judith Berry, and Lovell Adams-Gray as Peter Broome, the one who had an affair with Talvinder. Season 3 had Lisa Berry as Detective Roberta Hanson. Besides them, there were other members of the cast too who contributed immensely to the plots of each season.
Season 4: “Flesh & Blood” had Alex Ozeroc, Chris Jacot, Jeananne Goosen, Maria del Mr, Paula Brancati, Rachel Crawford, Sabrina Grdevich, Sydney Meyer, Patrick Garrow, and David Cronenberg as the main cast members.
Is there any trailer for Slasher season 5?
