Amazon's Lore TV series returns for a second season this October, the official month of scares, appropriately. As such, the streaming service debuted a creepy teaser at its San Diego Comic-Con panel today, along with a premiere date for the show.

Lore is based on the podcast of the same name, created by Aaron Mahnke. Each episode delves into a horrific true story from yesteryear that gave rise to myths and legends. 

Executive producer Gale Anne Hurd (The Walking Dead) was on hand at SDCC to talk about the new season. She compared it to the intitial one, promising, “It is scarier, it is really scarier," while adding, “The scope is much larger, but the stories are much more intimate."

Sean Crouch (The Exorcist) joins Lore this season as an executive producer and showrunner, and Alicia Witt (The Exorcist, The Walking Dead) and Steven Berkoff (A Clockwork Orange, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo) have both been announced as part of the cast.

Season 2 will once again be six episodes, some based on podcast episodes, and some that are new to the Lore "universe." Though the trailer only shows narrative footage, the show will keep with its style of using archive footage and animation, making it what Amazon calls a "hybrid" show.

Lore Season 2 premieres on Amazon Prime Oct. 19.
