According to Deadline, Amazon Prime Video has officially decided not to give Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s supernatural comedy series Truth Seekers a second season renewal. The news was actually first announced by Frost in a now-deleted Instagram video. The cancellation comes after over three months since the series debuted its 8-episode first season.
Truth Seekers was a supernatural comedy series that was set in a mysterious world filled with dread and just-out-of-sight monsters. It followed 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.
The series starred 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.
Truth Seekers was co-written by Pegg, Frost, Nat Saunders, and James Serafinowicz who executive produced alongside Miles Ketley and Jim Field Smith, who also serves as director.
Pegg and Frost have worked together on a number of projects, including Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, The World’s End, Spaced, Paul, and Slaughterhouse Rulez. The cancelled series marks their eighth collaboration together.
