Sci Fi Channel's new 'Scare Tactics' revival to premiere on July 9
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/30/2008
Sci Fi Channel has announced Scare Tactics' third season will premiere Wednesday, July 9 at 10PM ET/PT with two back-to-back half-hour episodes of the hidden-camera reality series that petrifies the pants off of unsuspecting victims.
Hosted by former Saturday Night Live cast member and current 30 Rock star Tracy Morgan, the show will follow a similar format to its first two editions -- with friends and family members of an unsuspecting victim helping to set-up up an elaborately staged scary situation, complete with movie-style special effects and makeup.
Each Scare Tactics segment ends with the hoax being revealed to the victim, and while home viewers may find the frightening funny, those being scared-stiff almost assuredly do not.
Sci Fi Channel renewed Scare Tactics for a third season in March -- more than four years after its last original episode aired.
