Amazon Prime Video has unleashed a new trailer for TRUTH SEEKERS, a supernatural comedy series from creators Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz. The eight-episode series will premiere on Prime Video beginning on October 30th, just in time for Halloween!
Truth Seekers is a supernatural comedy series about a team of part-time paranormal investigators who team up to uncover and film ghost sightings across the UK, sharing their adventures on an online channel for all to see. However, as they stake out haunted churches, underground bunkers, and abandoned hospitals with their array of homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their supernatural experiences grow more frequent, more terrifying, and even deadly, as they begin to uncover a conspiracy that could bring about Armageddon for the entire human race.
Set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters, Truth Seekers mixes the very funny with the very scary in an exciting take on genre storytelling and stars Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave, Samson Kayo as Elton, Malcolm McDowell as Richard, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, and Susan Wokoma as Helen.
Who among you is ready to brave the unknown with the team that brought you SHAUN OF THE DEAD, HOT FUZZ, and PAUL? Okay, so maybe PAUL wasn’t the best note to end on, but I think you see where I’m going with this. The series, which is co-written by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz, looks to deliver plenty of frights for this year’s spooky season in addition to a scary amount of laughs. While there’s no shortage of series to watch nowadays, I must admit that I’m excited to see what Pegg and Frost have conjured for their latest release. It’s been a hot minute since I’ve been in the company of their witty comedy stylings and I’m hoping that the show’s supernatural premise will summon more than a few laughs.
