The Haunted Hunts: Cemeteries Of The Dead
Danny Moss and his team return in a new six-part series, 'The Haunted Hunts: Cemeteries Of The Dead', which premieres on April 27 on Amazon Prime and the Haunted Hunts Extra.

It will follow Danny, along with Rebecca Salisbury-Moss, Emma Dawe, Charlie Rutter and Roxanne Rutter as they attempt to seek out paranormal activity at six locations with links to burials including Bishton Hall in Staffordshire which has its own pet cemetery, Norton Priory in Runcorn where 130 skeletons were found during an excavation, and Penrhyn Old Hall where dismembered body parts and skeletons have been found.

A recently revealed teaser trailer for the series gives fans of the team a taste of what's to come at the six new locations, which also include Walton Hall and Samlesbury Hall in Lancashire, and Merseyside's Mill Street Barracks. 

The dark and dramatic clip shows the team at some famous and not so well known locations across the UK, all of which have links to burial sites and all of which are claimed to be haunted.

In the trailer Danny says, "these locations that we are about to take on over the next few weeks are full of mystery, they are full of secrets and if we can uncover something that is only possible by investigating, it would just be an incredible moment for us."

As well as the new episodes, subscribers of the Haunted Hunts Extra will get access to behind the scenes footage from 'Cemeteries Of The' Dead', including a séance, which was filmed half way through the first investigation of the season.
