A New Future For Most Haunted ?

Living TV has finally released the rights to Most Haunted back to Karl Beattie and Antix Productions. This means Karl could now take the show to another TV station.

The statement from Living TV said: “We have decided not to recommission Most Haunted and will be giving Antix Productions the right to take it to another channel if they wish,” Sky Living said. “We would like to thank Yvette Fielding and Karl Beattie for all of their hard work and commitment over the years.”

The statement continued: “Like every commercial TV channel, Sky Living is constantly developing new ideas. We recognise our customers’ appetite for paranormal programming and have recently aired a series about popular psychic Sally Morgan and original scripted drama Bedlam, which proved to be the channel’s most successful commissioned series in its history.

“As well as paranormal, the channel will build on other successful genres, from scripted comedy to real-life relationships, which we know our customers also enjoy.”

The news was posted on Karl Beattie’s Facebook and in the Sun Newspaper.

Hi Guys Just wanted to give you the official news. SkyLiving has decided not to re-commission MH which is sad news, however, we have been given our rights back, so we can go to other broadcasters with it. I think that a new home and better investigation techniques will move MH into the next phase making it bigger and better than ever. We are very excited about MH’s future, so onwards and upwards my paranormal friends. xx

The Sun 13th August

GHOST-busting show Most Haunted has been axed by Sky Living – a year after Yvette Fielding quit.

The channel will return the programme rights to production company Antix, run by Yvette, 42, and husband Karl Beattie.

A spokesman said Sky Living will focus on other paranormal TV, including psychic Sally Morgan’s show and drama Bedlam.

On 27th October 2011, Karl Beattie announced via his Facebook profile;

“Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to get a programme sorted for halloween, getting all the rights back took much longer than first thought. But we are back now, next year we will be looking to go bigger and better than ever before and we will take halloween back.

We are about to sign a very exciting deal with a very large company to take Most Haunted to the next level. So watch this space. And thanks for all of your support and undying loyalty, which in this industry is a very rare thing indeed, thank you all it means so much.”

  2. Can’t tell you how excited I am that there’s hope for a new level of MH.

Would do ANYTHING to go on location for new series!! Hee hee

  4. glad your back, was getting withdrawals, one bit of advice though, please choose your fellow ghost hunters with more care this time, as the constant screams and swearing was wearing a little bit thin last time, Yvette- your a brave girl, keep it up.

  5. So Halloween’s just over 4 weeks away and still nothing from MH. What happened with Karl’s statement last year about it being too late to do a MH but they’d be back bigger and better than ever next year to “take back Halloween” – always though he was full of it!

  6. hi iam realy excited that most hunting is comeing back on tv lets hope it dose hapen dose any one no when its comeing back on

  7. Love the programme but all that sceaming and silly “did you hear that etc” gets very annoying after all you are there to find ghosts plus stop interupting the mediums except for Acorah he talks for the sake of it.

  9. Great news that MH will be back soon – really missed it. However, how is Yvette going to ever live down the fact that when she appeared on the Justin Collins show on Channel 4 or 5 ? she basically said that all mediums were fakes ?!!

  10. Great to hear that MH is to return – missed you loads. However, how will Yvette ever live down the fact that she appeared on a Channel 4 programmeH (Justin’s) and stated that all Mediums were frauds ?!

  11. Hi Yvette and Karl, it is great to hear that you will soon be back. I live in the sunny island of Malta and I always followed your episodes. As you know Malta is rich in history covering diffrent eras and dating back 7500 years ago. Maybe one day you consider investigate one of the historical places such as prehistoric temples, catacombs, palaces and the old capital city of Mdina, which empty houses are alive during the nights.

  18. @Charlie

    Well theres been talk of 2 main channels :

    C5 – They wanted the program before. And the channel controller brung MH to Living..

    ITV1/2 – Ghosthunting with .. and with Karl stateing a big channel wont get any bigger than ITV..

    Bio, C4 and Syfi have been mentiond aswell..

  19. So which channel do you think it will return on? My guess is that it won’t be a terrestrial station, although if it did I’d plump for ITV2 or Five, it’ll probably be satellite again so I’ll go for Watch.

  20. Yippee. mh is coming back. just had a horrible sickness bug and just heard the mh news. the perfect cure. so excited. bring it on mh, you guys are amazing.

  21. I have been watching Most Haunted from the beginning of the series. I have worked in broadcasting in America and Britain and have enjoyed and appreciated how you keep viewer’s interest through the progress of the show technically and educationally. I am happy to hear Most Haunted is coming back! I would like to suggest additions to the show by having a specialist or specialists on the vigils in the areas of religion, demonology and the occult. Most Haunted is providing important research information for studies in the paranormal. The Most Haunted team has provided me with explainations with cases I have researched in the past. I look forward to your new season ahead!

  22. Have just read that most haunted is coming back thank god I have missed it love seeing all the crow all I would like to know now is when and what channel

  23. Not the same without Most Haunted. I miss the live episode at halloween. Didn’t know what to do this year! Went on a ghost walk in York with Trevor Rooney (the first and best walk.) Most Haunted come back soon.

  24. she looked really well just glad its coming back i forgot it was pre recorded my self i reckon its on itv then again could be wrong what about ch4 lol

  25. OMG Yvette, You look good, its a shame we still know nothing yet. But hey your coming back to us next year roll on 2012, xx

  26. Ghost watch was really scary at the time !

    Yvette has just been on the Titchers Show. Not a word about Most Haunted unfortunately, just a ten minute section on some of the most haunted places she’s ever been to, which oddly enough are all on the latest DVD, lololol.
    It was good to see her though. She looks really well and her hair is the best I’ve ever seen it.

    @charlie classics!! i remember watching ghostwatch i was 18 good lord! and at the time a little gullible lol
    @jason HA must get my facts right mate sorry about that av a gud un
    cant wait for 3 o clock made some develish salsa to go with tortillas and some demon fajitas then trick or treating with hubby and daughter wicked love it sooo much take care everyone have a blinder of a night and cheers to halloween and MH xxxxxxxx

  28. Hard to believe it’s been two years since there was a live MH on the spookiest night of the year – doesn’t time fly! Will be providing my own scary entertainment tonight, we’ll be watching the DVD of BBC’S 1992 “fake” live paranormal drama Ghostwatch follwed by a couple of classic scary movies – The Shining and, what else, Halloween.
