‘Reality Seekers’ with Nick Frost and Simon Pegg Canceled by Amazon After One Season
Amazon has determined to drag the plug on Reality Seekers, the horror-comedy collection from creators Nick Frost, Simon Pegg, James Serafinowicz, and Nat Saunders. The collection premiered on Amazon Prime Video in October of 2020, however it received’t be shifting past its first season. Frost introduced the present’s cancelation by way of social media. Reality Seekers handled the adventures of novice paranormal investigators.
Final summer time, I coated the Reality Seekers panel at (digital) Comedian-Con, and I actually appreciated what I noticed. Particularly: I appreciated that the parents concerned with the collection realized that when you’re making a horror-comedy, you want to care simply as a lot concerning the horror as you do the comedy. It’s an issue a number of horror-comedies have – they lean method too laborious on the jokes and overlook all concerning the spooky stuff. “You have to not make fun of the horror,” co-creator and co-star Simon Pegg stated through the panel. “It’s tempting with genre fare to parody that…but I think the key for horror-comedy is to take the horror seriously.”
I made a psychological be aware to verify the present out when it arrived. Then…I sort of forgot all about it. And now I really feel sort of unhealthy about that, as a result of the present has been canceled. Co-creator and star Nick Frost broke the information (by way of TV Line):
“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. I think we had lots of lovely ghost stories to tell, stories that will remain untold. If you liked the show, thank you. I really, really appreciate your support. And if you didn’t, well, are you happy now? Happy now?”
Nick Frost: I’m sorry. I actually did imply to look at the present! However you know the way issues go – you get distracted by different stuff and a few issues slip by the cracks. I doubt that my lone viewership would’ve been sufficient to save lots of Reality Seekers from an premature demise, however nonetheless, I really feel unhealthy. Ah nicely.
In Reality Seekers, “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.”
