Amazon's horror anthology "Lore" - shot in metro Atlanta season one- will return for a second season.

Unfortunately, season two will be shot in elsewhere, not Atlanta. Oh, well.

The series is adapted from Aaron Mahnke's award-winning podcast of the same name and is now available on Amazon Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.

As noted in a press release:

Lore explores the real-life frightening and disturbing tales that give rise to modern-day myths and legends. Season two will feature new tales from the podcast, as well as original stories not yet available in podcast form, and will star new cast members. The hybrid series will continue to feature narration, archive footage and animation to complement the filmed segments.

"As a fan of documentaries and horror, 'Lore' resonates with me on so many levels," said executive producer Gale Anne Hurd ("The Walking Dead"). "Season two is shaping up to be scarier and even more compelling and unnerving than our first one!"

The first season received four out of five stars on Amazon Prime and a 6.9 out of 10 on
