“As an actor, I’ve always been drawn toward material that is more ‘fantastic’ in nature, so I was eager and excited to partner with Travel Channel and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on this new show. And because amazing things happen all around the world, we should have no shortage of unbelievable stories to share with a fresh new audience,” he said in a press release. Campbell celebrated the news at a New Year’s Eve celebration of Ripley’s Believe It or Not!’s 100 year anniversary.

70 Years Of Stories

The show version of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! began in 1949 and was hosted by Robert Ripley. Following Ripley’s untimely death after episode 13, various people began hosting the series. The show was revived in 1982, 2000, and 2008.

Heading This Summer

The reboot will premiere this summer with 10 hour-long episodes. The show will be filmed at the iconic Ripley Warehouse based in Orlando, Florida. This isn’t Campbell’s first hosting job. In 2015, he hosted Last Fan Standing for Con TV.
