Guess we’ll see!

In 2020, he hosted a travel show for The Travel Channel called True Terror with Robert Englund, which highlights terrifying stories from the history of America. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Robert said about the show, “What I like about it is, even though it’s myths and legends, they all were reported in a newspaper. They have a certain journalistic-reportage-cred that I think differentiates it from a show about UFOs or paranormal [activity].”
