After weeks of speculation about the future of Destination Fear on the Travel Channel and discovery+, Dakota Laden has confirmed that the series has indeed been cancelled.
This is not the end for the Destination Fear team however, as Dakota Laden, Chelsea Laden, Tanner Wiseman, and Alex Schroeder will continue with a newly branded series entitled Project Fear on YouTube.
In the first video about the new venture, the team announced that Project Fear will kick off with an eight part series called “Return to Terror” that will bring them back to Sweet Springs Sanitarium in West Virginia, as well as new haunted locations.
Project Fear will seek funding through a new Kickstarter campaign, and the goal is to raise $65,000 for production costs.
Schroeder sees the new opportunity as a chance “to create a self-sustaining show” that can be funded for “the fraction of the cost of what it cost to fund one episode of Destination Fear.”
Dakota Laden said “If you can, only if you can, we ask that you contribute to our campaign.”
The Kickstarter campaign will also feature a number of perks such as signed photos of the team and zoom calls with entire crew.
