Today, Amazon Prime Video have released the official trailer for Nick Frost and Simon Pegg's new paranormal comedy series Truth Seekers and confirmed its launch date.
The new eight-part series launches on Friday 30th October, just in time for Halloween and sees Nick Frost as Gus, Simon Pegg as Dave and Malcolm McDowell, Samson Kayo, Susan Wokoma and Emma D’Arcy as a team of part-time paranormal investigators.
Together they 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 promises to mix the very funny with the very scary in a unique take on genre storytelling from the minds that gave us Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, Sick Note and Paul.

At the time of announcement, back in August 2019, Simon Pegg said “Nick and I are delighted that Truth Seekers has found a home with Amazon Prime Video. We’re looking forward to working closely with them and creating something very special. These are truly exciting times for television and I can’t think of a better partner than Amazon to accompany us on a return to the smaller screen.”
To which Nick Frost added “Simon, Miles and I, and everyone at Stolen Picture, are incredibly happy to be making Truth Seekers with our new partners, Amazon Prime Video. It’s been nothing but a joyride in seeing this mad tale of paranormal conspiracy unfold in all its understated brilliance. Amazon’s commitment and support of the show and of original programming generally, showed us that we couldn’t be collaborating with a bigger or better team.”
