Ghost-hunting shows are pretty commonplace on TV, but Living For the Dead is something different. Narrated by Kristen Stewart, the series focuses on a quintet of ghost hunters, all of whom are LGBTQ+ folks: Alex Le May, a ghost hunter; Juju Bae, a spiritual healer and witch; Ken Boggle, a tarot card reader; Logan Taylor, a psychic; and Roz Hernandez, a paranormal researcher.
Traveling around in a van, the group does the usual investigations of supposedly haunted houses but also attempts to heal the living in hopes that it helps the dead too. The five also banter and handle life on the road together, often in difficult local environments.
With all eight episodes now on Hulu, here’s a quick guide on how this unique show works out!
