The Travel Channel is bringing back the classic series Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, and they revealed the news on the Twitter with a trailer for the series and they also revealed that Bruce Campbell will be the host of the series!
He is a better choice to host a series like this. As a huge fan of Bruce Campbell, I’d like to see him make an Army of Darkness sequel, but I’ll gladly watch him host a series that centers on exploring all the eerie, unusual, and mysterious things in the world.

Campbell responded to this tweet with the following:
We have seen various iterations of the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not series since 1949 when it first aired on NBC until 1950. It was later restarted in 1982 and ran until 1986. It was later brought back in 2000 and aired until 2003.
Campbell joins a long line of hosts that previously included Robert Ripley, Doug Stoner, Jack Palance, Catherine Sheriff, Holly Palance, Marie Osmond, Dean Cain, Kelly Packard, and Gregory Jbara.
