Ghost Hunters returns for an 8th season on Syfy January 18th, and we’ve got a special 9 minute preview of the upcoming season and a look back at some memorable moments!
Former The View and Today host Meredith Vieira is a guest on tonight’s Ghost Hunters, which airs at 9/8c on Syfy…while you wait, check out this clip with Meredith talking about believing in ghosts and being part of the investigation…
Syfy will celebrate Halloween with its fourth annual 31 Days of Halloween fright fest showcasing more than 600 hours of holiday- themed programming, running October 1-October 31.
As always, the centerpiece of the month-long spook-a-thon will be Ghost Hunters Halloween Live on Monday, October 31 from 7PM-1AM/ET. This year, Jason, Grant and team members from both Ghost Hunters and Ghost Hunters International will head to Pennhurst Asylum in Pennsylvania, a sprawling maze of buildings constituting a former state mental institution. Abandoned for decades, Pennhurst is now one of the country’s most notoriously haunted locales.
If you are at Universal Studios Orlando this Thursday, October 6th for Halloween Horror Nights 21, you can meet up for a Q&A and autograph session with Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango of Ghost Hunters!
The Ghost Hunters Q&A session begins at 8 p.m., followed by the autograph session at 9 p.m. at Pantages theatre, located in the Hollywood area of Universal Studios. Access to the Q&A and autograph session are included in regular admission to Halloween Horror Nights 21 on Thursday.
Ghost Hunters has become one of the highest rated reality shows on Syfy Channel. The popular show follows Gonsalves, Tango and a group of real-life paranormal researchers as they track down the presence of paranormals across the country.
With 19 nights remaining through October, Universal Orlando’s Halloween Horror Nights is the nation’s best and most intense Halloween event. Guests confront extreme Halloween entertainment that cannot be experienced anywhere else. This year, they scream as they come face-to-face with a horrifying “thing,” panic as they are hunted by savage banshees, feel chills as they are surrounded by fiendish creatures from a third dimension – and watch in paralyzing fear as Lady Luck transforms from a tempting seductress to a bloodthirsty beast.
Season 7 hasn’t finished airing yet, but Syfy has already announced an 8th season for Ghost Hunters, already it’s longest running original reality series, ordering up 20 new episodes for airing in 2012.
On Wednesday nights at 9pm for nearly seven years, Ghost Hunters has set the standard for paranormal series, offering viewers spine-tingling cases from the files of TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) – led by Rhode Island plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson.
To date, season seven (premiered February 2010) has attracted 1.1 million Adults 25-54 and 1 million Adults 18-49.
The next episode of Ghost Hunters airs at a special night and time: Wednesday, June 1 @ 8pm and features an hour-long case in Hawaii. Guest Josh Gates (Destination Truth) joins the team as they investigate paranormal claims at the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The museum’s original plane hangars stand as they did on the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, and still bear the bullet holes and bomb craters from the attacks that precipitated U.S. involvement in World War II. Visitors and employees alike have reported several startling experiences at the museum, suggesting that the site’s history has made it a hub for paranormal activity.
Ghost Hunters is produced in association with Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Films and Television (Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter, My Fair Wedding). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.
Along with the big programming announcement, Syfy also said that with the success of their “Countdown to Christmas Week” last December which featured special holiday episodes of Eureka and Warehouse 13, this year those shows plus Ghost Hunters and Haven will feature holiday-themed episodes, and the week’s centerpiece this year will be Neverland, featuring the voice of Keira Knightley as Tinker Bell, which we’ve reported on earlier.
Syfy will also have a Twilight Zone New Years marathon for the 17th straight year.
I never really watched the Ghost Hunters shows until the live Halloween episode – now the whole family is hooked on them. But it’s a good idea not to watch them right before bed 🙂 Some are just creepy.
I got a rough cut of the upcoming season premiere of Ghost Hunters International, which airs this Wednesday, January 5th, at 9PM ET, where they investigate Kronborg Castle in Denmark, the inspiration for the location of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.
Syfy has set the premiere dates for their version of Being Human as well as some new and returning series and movies. All times are Eastern Standard Time:
Ghost Hunters International: January 5th, 10PM
Merlin: January 7th, 10PM – Third season premiere.
Being Human: January 17th, 9PM – The U.S. version of the popular British show
Face Off: January 26th, 10PM – A challenge competition between special effects makeup artists. Think “Food Network Challenge” meets prosthetics.
In addition, the return of Ghost Hunters and the debut of Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen will occur in February, and Destination Truth will return in March.
Behemoth: January 15th, 9PM – Scientists discover a giant creature under the Earth that is wrapped around the entire planet. When the creature wakes all grumpy, it causes worldwide destruction. Starring Ed Quinn (Nathan Stark, Eureka).
Mega Python Vs Gatoroid: January 29th, 9PM – Come on, admit it – you’ve been waiting for this. Debbie Gibson vs. Tiffany. Oh, and something about giant swamp creatures in the Everglades.
Syfy has just announced a second season order for Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files, a third season for Ghost Hunters International, and 12 more episodes to attach to the current season of Hollywood Treasure.
Read on for the full press release.
