There’s been rumours of Most Haunted returning to TV ever since Most Haunted went away. However, the re-runs keep running and that seems to show the value in the series.
Now it looks like Most Haunted might be back and it will happen this year. The news comes from the closed Facebook group Access All Areas of Paranormal with the Karl & Yvette Team Support Group and spread by pages like Most Haunted: The Next Generation.
The new show will star Yvette Fielding, Karl Beattie and also Fred Batt. Batt’s done plenty of work on the show before as their demonologist. The 2013 Most Haunted promises to be darker and more scientific. This will put it in line with the US based ghost hunting shows that make heavy use of technology and a more aggressive approach to their investigations. Whereas old Most Haunted might feature people running away from a noise in the darkness, the new breed of shows would have people run towards it and this might be what Most Haunted 2013 will try and do as well.
Most Haunted was cleared of deception back in 2005 when the Ofcom regulated ruled it counted as entertainment rather than a legitimate investigation into the paranormal. Don’t take the show seriously, said the official advice. Nevertheless, some fans will want investigations to be as real as possible. Other fans will want the investigations to be as fruitful as possible. The new Most Haunted will have to try and balance those needs.

Do you believe Most Haunted will return to a widely available TV channel this year? If it does… is that a good thing?
