Poltergeist: The Legacy

Show Summary

Poltergeist: The Legacy was a show that tried to capture the style and success of The X-Files but move it more fully into the horror genre. 'Since the beginning of time mankind has existed between the world of light and the world of darkness. This journal chronicles the work of our secret society, known as The Legacy, created to protect the innocent from those creatures that inhabit the shadows and the night.' So the opening credits intoned. The show had a four season run, three years on the Showtime Network and one year on SciFi. It was never able to attract a huge audience, its highest ratings occurring in its final season when it featured WWE wrestler The Undertaker as a being from Hell who collected souls. While not getting the plaudits of The X-Files, it managed to create an interesting group of characters and story ideas.
