The fate of mankind is once again under threat as demons return to take over the world in this first-look trailer for E4’s new horror comedy Crazyhead.
The six-part series from Misfits creator Howard Overman stars Downton Abbey’s Cara Theobold and Susan Wokoma (Chewing Gum) as Amy and Raquel, two 20-somethings who are among the few people able to see those who have died but are now possessing the living in order to carry out some unfinished business.
The Buffy-esque series promises an exciting mix of horror, action and raunchy comedy as the self-made demon hunters attempt to get through their twenties while also fighting the odd supernatural being along the way.
Overman told Digital Spy: “I had this idea that these girls were both battling their demons in friendship and love and all the sort of messed up shit you have to deal with in life, as well as actual demons.
“It’s as much about their friendship as the horror genre elements, about two slightly lost girls who find each other.”
Crazyhead also stars Riann Steele (In the Flesh), Lewis Reeves (Unforgotten), Arinze Kene (Youngers) and Tony Curran (Sons of Anarchy) and arrives on E4 this Autumn.
