Syfy has renewed hidden-camera reality series Scare Tactics.

The show will return for a 13-episode fifth season, with 30 Rock actor Tracy Morgan returning as host and executive producer.

Production begins this spring, with Syfy eyeing a fall 2012 launch. The second half of the fourth season will return in October with six new episodes.

The half-hour series conspires with friends and family members to lure those close to them into outrageous scenarios.
