The Nick Frost-produced comedy horror series Truth Seekers, starring Simon Pegg, has been cancelled after just one season. Frost shared the news on social media, claiming that the episode had been canceled and that viewers had seen the last of his bushy-bearded ghost hunter.
Truth Seekers is an eight-episode series that follows Nick Frost and his team of part-time paranormal investigators as they travel to haunted locations around the United Kingdom to investigate and film ghost sightings, then share their findings on an online website for everyone to see. However, as they scour haunted ruins, underground bunkers, and abandoned hospitals with their homemade ghost-detecting gizmos, their mysterious experiences grow more vivid, terrifying, and even deadly, as they uncover a conspiracy that could bring Armageddon to the entire human race.
Truth Seekers 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 in a thrilling take on genre storytelling set in a dystopian world fraught with horror and just-out-of-sight monsters. The series was written by Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz, and directed by Jim Field Smith.
Truth Seekers, starring James Serafinowicz and Nat Saunders and directed by Nick Frost and Simon Pegg of Shaun of the Dead, was well-received by critics and viewers alike. The series currently has a 76 percent approval rate on Rotten Tomatoes, with reviewers acknowledging that while it might not be as laugh-out-loud hilarious as the comedy duo’s previous work, Truth Seekers is truly creepy.
Truth Seekers has a wonderful cast and a lot of promise, and it’s a shame that it won’t be realized in future adventures because it ended with a cliffhanger. Nick Frost plays Gus Roberts, Simon Pegg plays David, Samson Kayo plays Elton, Malcolm McDowell plays Richard, Emma D’Arcy plays Astrid, and Susan Wokoma plays Helen in the first season of Truth Seekers. The show Truth Seekers is now available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
