The new horror-comedy series about part-time paranormal investigators is beefing up its cast…

Amazon has revealed that Malcolm McDowell, Samson Kayo, Emma D’Arcy, Susan Wokoma and Julian Barratt have joined the cast of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost’s new series, Truth Seekers.

McDowell is set to play Richard in the new horror-comedy project, with Samson Kayo as Elton, Emma D’Arcy as Astrid, Susan Wokoma as Helen, and Julian Barratt as Dr. Peter Toynbee. Pegg and Frost lead the cast as Dave and Gus, who are part-time paranormal investigators.

The pair will “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.”

Pegg and Frost have written Truth Seekers with Nat Saunders and James Serafinowicz. It starts filming this week, and will debut on Amazon Prime Video UK in 2020.
