Amazon has released a teaser trailer for Lore, an upcoming horror anthology series based on the podcast of the same name.
The series will be a mixture of live-action segments, animated segments, documentary footage, and narration from creator Aaron Mahnke. It will dive into real life scary stories from throughout history, including some that would become the inspiration for fictional horror favorites.

Winner of the “Best History Podcast 2016” by Podcast Academy
Lore is an award-winning, critically-acclaimed podcast about true life scary stories. Our fears have roots. Lore exposes the darker side of history, exploring the creatures, people, and places of our wildest nightmares.
Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.
Each episode examines a new dark historical tale in a modern campfire experience. With over 6,300 5-star reviews on Apple Podcasts and an average of 6-million monthly listens, that’s clearly a good thing.
New episodes are released every two weeks, on Mondays.
ABOUT THE TELEVISION SHOW
Yes, Lore is on its way to the small screen! While the process began just 6 months after Lore was launched, the news didn’t go public until April 2016. Aaron is working with two powerhouse companies to make it happen: Propogate Content (with former NatGeo head Howard T. Owens and former NBC head Ben Silverman), and Valhalla Entertainment, the producer behind The Walking Dead.
In October of 2016 it was announced that the series has been picked up by Amazon Studios, and a full season has been ordered. Also revealed, Glen Morgan (legendary X-Files writer and producer) has joined the team as showrunner. The expected premiere in the Fall of 2017.
The first season of Lore will be six episodes, and is set to arrive on Amazon this Halloween season on October 13th. There’s also a book on the way called The World of Lore: Monstrous Creatures. You can head to Amazon for more on the book and to pre-order if interested.
From the executive producer of The Walking Dead and the executive producer of The X-Files, this anthology series brings to life Aaron Mahnke’s “Lore” podcast and uncovers the real-life events that spawned our darkest nightmares. Blending dramatic scenes, animation, archive and narration, Lore reveals how our horror legends – such as vampires, werewolves and body snatchers – are rooted in truth.
