Aaron Martin (Saving Hope, Being Erica, Degrassi: The Next Generation), recipient of the 2017 WGC Showrunner Award, returns as showrunner. Set in the remote Canadian winter wilderness, the story revolves around a group of former summer camp counsellors who are forced to return to the isolated campground to retrieve evidence of a crime they committed in their youth. Before long the group, and the campâ€™s latest inhabitants, members of a spiritual retreat with their own secrets to hide, find themselves targeted by someone â€“ or something â€“ out for horrific revenge. Nominated for five Canadian Screen Awards for its first season, Slasher 2: Guilty Party has been filming on location in Orangeville, Ontario and surrounding area since February.
Brought together by a horrific secret theyâ€™ve long kept buried, a group of former friends must return in the dead of winter to the now-closed summer camp they worked at five years before. Deep in the snow-covered wilderness, the rundown camp has now become a private and isolated â€œintentional communityâ€ cut-off from civilization by weather, wilderness, and choice. The groupâ€™s secretive reason to return causes tension and tempers to flare. Before long, they find themselves gruesomely targeted by someone â€“ or something â€“ out for horrific revenge. The locationâ€™s isolation starts to wear on relationships and expose surprising secrets, and as the winter weather worsens, so does the killerâ€™s grisly spree. As blood and secrets spill across the vast and snowy wild surrounding the camp, the mismatched group must try to escape not just the killerâ€™s retribution, but also survive the deadly elements.
