Kristen Stewart, who rose to fame for her role as Bella in the Twilight films, is revisiting her supernatural roots with an all-new LGBTQ+ ghost-hunting series titled Living for the Dead.
The first trailer for the upcoming docuseries produced by Kristen Stewart dropped yesterday, September 28. The series, set to star Kristen Stewart as well as other queer ghost-hunters like Alex Le May, Juju Bae, Ken Boggle, Logan Taylor, and Ron Hernandez, will premiere on Hulu on October 18 as part of its annual Huluween event.
The trailer shows the queer crew of ghost hunters travelling across the United States to visit a variety of notoriously haunted locales, including Tonopah’s Clown Motel and Bisbee’s Copper Queen Hotel. If the premise, a crew of colourful road-tripping ghost hunters, sounds familiar, that’s because it is! Living for the Dead has been billed as a “gay Scooby Doo”.
In the trailer, we can see Kristen Stewart embark on this exciting (and spooky) mission across the country alongside a tarot reader, a psychic, and a witch. As the official blurb describes, the series will show “Five amazing, queer ghost hunters travel the nation to save the living by mending the dead. They will reveal the unseen and untold tales as they investigate some of the most notorious haunted places in the globe. Together, they will overcome barriers to bring acceptance to both the living and the deceased who are misunderstood.”
In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE magazine, Stewart commented on the show, saying: “It’s so cool and enlivening that me and my best friend CJ Romero had this funny idea and now it’s a show. It started as a bit of a hypothetical silly pipe dream and now I am so proud to have shepherded something that is as moving and meaningful as it is truly a gay old time.”
The actress added that the show’s crew “makes me laugh and cry and they had the courage and heart to take us places I wouldn’t go by myself.”
“This is just the beginning for us and for Living For The Dead,” Stewart concluded. “We wanna one day have traipsed across the entire spooky ass country. Maybe the world!”
Living For The Dead will be available to stream on Hulu from 18 October. Check out the first trailer below!
