Killer Camp returns to ITV2 this week for an extended second series.
Described as “TV’s scariest reality game-show”, Killer Camp first aired in 2019 over Halloween.
A brand new series will run on ITV2 from Monday, 29 November at 10:45PM with episodes continuing nightly across the week. Alternatively, the full second series is available to watch online via ITV Hub here.
Presiding over the mayhem, Bobby Mair resumes his role as Camp Counsellor and host as 13 unsuspecting contestants arrive at 80s-inspired lakeside lodge Camp Pleasant.
But once again, in an explosive twist, a secret murderer is there amongst them.
A teaser for the series explains: “The aim of the game is to earn cash through several challenges whilst avoiding being killed and therefore eliminated from the game.
“Across the series the murderer will bump off their fellow campers, deploying the brutal services of Camp Handyman Bruce to execute the killings for them in even more extreme, hilarious and inventive ways; it’s the job of the innocents to work out who is responsible before it’s too late…”
Bobby shares: “If you’re a fan of the show you can expect more fun murders, a lot of drama between the campers and some fun antics between Bobby and Bruce. It’s a murder mystery injected into a horror movie!
“It’s such an epic series and even if I wasn’t in it, I’d watch it. It’s an exciting show where you’re really trying to figure out who the killer is the whole time and along the way there’s romances, bromances and betrayal. It really is a great ride.”
He adds: “There are definitely lots of new twists in store this series, but if I told you, I’d have to kill you! I will say that it’s scarier and more intense than ever before. There’s a new recurring challenge set in Bruce’s House of Horrors this series, which is very exciting.”
As well as promising more “hilarious, disgusting deaths”, Bobby says the extended series makes it harder to figure out the killer.
“We have more time to get to know these people. I would think I knew who the killer was and then that person would get killed off and I would have no idea who it is,” he says. “I would say it’s a real rollercoaster trying to figure out who is actually pulling the strings this season and I think the viewers will have a lot of fun trying to figure it out.
“Like any reality show, the show is totally dependent upon the people. Any time you have a new group of people together it’s completely different. These contestants are aware of the first season, so they know what they are signing up for when they go in. From the outset, they all go in, looking for the killer.
“From the get go there’s less trust, more suspicion and they’re ready for it. There’s a lot of finger pointing.”
If the innocents can work out the killer they’ll head home with the cash.
But last series saw killer Carl remain undetected for the entire stay, bagging the prize money for himself.
