The Travel Channel is bringing back the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not TV series, and they’ve found a great host. Legendary cult actor Bruce Campbell, and his prominent chin, will guide viewers through a series that shines a light on “the extraordinary, the death defying, the odd and the unusual.” There have been several Believe It Or Not shows, all springing from the brand Robert Ripley created 100 years ago.
“As an actor, I’ve always been drawn toward material that is more ‘fantastic’ in nature, so I was eager and excited to partner with Travel Channel and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on this new show,” Campbell said in a statement. “And because amazing things happen all around the world, we should have no shortage of unbelievable stories to share with a fresh new audience.” The Believe It Or Not reboot will feature “10 all-new, one-hour episodes that will showcase the most astonishing, real and one-of-a-kind stories. Currently in production, the series will be shot on location at the famed Ripley Warehouse in Orlando, FL, and will incorporate incredible stories from all parts of the globe — from Brazil to Baltimore.” The new Believe It Or Not is one of several shows based around the premise.
Regarding the new show, Jane Latman, general manager of Travel Channel, said: “This entirely new version of Ripley’s is a fresh contemporary approach to the odd and unusual and will be jam-packed with larger-than-life characters, cool facts, history and science.”
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not will premiere summer 2019.
