If the truth is out there, it will likely remain out there. Amazon has canceled Nick Frost and Simon Pegg’s supernatural series “Truth Seekers” after just one season.
“Get ready to be rocked with some bad news,” Frost said in an Instagram video on Friday. “Sadly, ‘Truth Seekers’ will not be returning for a second season. ‘Truth Seekers’ has not been renewed, which is a massive kick in the willy for me. We really put our all into this, our heart and soul and blood in some cases — so to not come back is really sad for us. It’s a shame.”
“Truth Seekers” followed a team of part-time paranormal investigators using homemade gadgets to track the supernatural, sharing their adventures online. Their haunted stakeouts became more terrifying as they began to uncover “an unimaginable, apocalyptic conspiracy,” according to the show’s logline.
Guess we’ll never get to the bottom of all that, as the streaming series is now ending after its initial eight-episode run.
In addition to creators Frost and Pegg, “Truth Seekers” also starred Malcolm McDowell, Samson Kayo, Susan Wokoma and Emma D’Arcy.
Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz co-created the series, which initially debuted its trailer during last summer’s COVID-caused Comic-Con@Home.
“Truth Seekers” had reunited frequent movie collaborators Frost and Pegg for the first time on television since “Spaced.” The tw buddies have shared the big screen in “Shaun of the Dead” (2004), “Hot Fuzz” (2007), “Paul” (2011) and The World’s End” (2013).
