By Tania Hussain - May 20, 2021 03:23 pm EDT

After getting an initial revival in 2019 on A&E, Ghost Hunters has made the move to discovery+ with three of the original members of the Syfy paranormal hit now turned former investigators of Travel Channel's Ghost Nation . In a press release from Discovery on Tuesday, the mega-hit paranormal investigation series was greenlighted for a comeback with Jason Hawes , Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango for its streaming platform discovery+. The three will return with their Ghost Nation co-investigator, Shari DeBenedetti.

The news was surprising to fans, many of whom took to social media confused over the sudden revival of the series, which ran for two seasons on A&E alongside original team leader Grant Wilson and a new crew of investigators, including Kristen Luman , Daryl Marston , Mustafa Gatollari , Brandon Alvis , Richel Stratton and Brian Murray . Wilson spoke out about the matter Wednesday afternoon, informing fans he is not a part of the new rendition and that the show was "sold" to discovery+ with the team from Ghost Nation .

Hey, all! If you didn’t know by now, Ghost Hunters was sold to Discovery+ but with the team from Ghost Nation. I was not involved in this transaction nor am I a part of the new rendition. I wish them much success with it! — Grant Wilson (@grantswilson) May 19, 2021

This past January, Gatollari shared an update with PopCulture about the future of the series , admitting he and the other investigators were getting a lot of questions from fans about Season 3. "So much of that is up in the air," the New Jersey native said at the time. "It doesn't look like A&E is pursuing paranormal programming anymore, but we've never stopped our research or our work."

A year into the pandemic and Gatollari with fellow investigator Alvis are making sure they continue their investigations with a brand new YouTube series called Formula of a Haunting . Created by the pair to help further the field by analyzing potential evidence of the paranormal and disproving false positives, Gatollari says the series was a way for him to continue studying unexplained phenomena and share their unique techniques with fans.

As for the revived Ghost Hunters team, they will be back into the field next month per the network with Hawes, Gonsalves and Tango, along with DeBenedetti "taking back the paranormal reins in epic haunted locations" while teasing familiar faces and special guests will join investigations for the all-new version of the series. The 13 one-hour episodes will begin streaming later this year on discovery+.

In a statement from Travel Channel's general manager, Matthew Butler, the Pilgrim Media Group producer series is looking to bring back a dose of nostalgia to the pioneering franchise. "Fans are obsessed with the Paranormal & Unexplained hub on the new streaming platform," Butler said. "Bringing back Ghost Hunters with their favorite cast members is a thrill. And fans who want to remember why this show is a classic can watch seasons from the original series — they are available now on discovery+."

Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019.

STEVE GONSALVES

Steve Gonsalves, a former police officer, has been a public speaker and educator about paranormal phenomena for more than 18 years. Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019. The paranormal pioneer helped pave the way for a worldwide paranormal explosion as a main cast member of the hit television series “Ghost Hunters,” which included the spin-offs “Ghost Hunters Live” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.”

Gonsalves started his work in paranormal studies at a very young age and is well-educated in the field, having investigated over 1,000 reportedly haunted locations. He had the privilege of working closely with famed investigator and paranormal pioneer Dr. William G. Roll (Poltergeist) at the Rhine Research Center, and Ed and Lorraine Warren in the field.

Along with his multiple appearances on a variety of paranormal series, Gonsalves executive produced the horror short “The Captured Bird,” alongside famed writer and director Guillermo Del Toro. He has also been a featured guest on numerous television shows and radio programs, including “The View,” “Fox and Friends,” “Steve Harvey,” “Larry King Live” and “Katie” featuring Katie Couric, “Dr. Oz” and “The Drew Barrymore Show.” Aside from his work on camera, Gonsalves has an untitled book in the works and recently he directed and produced the #1 documentary of 2021 “The House In Between.”

ghost hunters now

Dave Tango – better known as “Tango” – is one of the world’s leading paranormal authorities, best known as an investigator and tech manager on the hit shows “Ghost Hunters” and “Ghost Hunters Academy.” Prior to the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” on discovery+ in 2021, he and his fellow investigators launched “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel in 2019.

Tango’s origins in the paranormal can be traced back to the stories his father (an Elizabeth, NJ police officer) told him of his unexplained encounters while on the force. As a child, Tango was always intrigued by mysteries and the unknown, which led him to pursue magic as a serious hobby, and it remains an integral part of what makes Tango tick. He attributes this background to his knack for problem solving, and his ability to distinguish between what is real and what’s simply an illusion.

Trained by the best in the paranormal field, Tango’s ghost-hunting philosophy is to never be afraid to try new techniques and always experiment in the field. His trademark genuineness and sometimes strange curiosity are what fans most undoubtedly love about him. Aside from being the quirky one at his paranormal day job, Dave has been a fan of stranger things since long before it was cool – from 80s synth to video games.

Shari DeBenedetti became interested in the paranormal field at a very young age as she experienced many strange and unexplained things. But it wasn’t until her mid 20’s that she began to research and investigate the paranormal, because the house she lived in at the time was believed to be haunted.

DeBenedetti first met Jason Hawes at a paranormal event many years ago and has remained friends with him and other team members. She joined the team and was a paranormal Investigator on two seasons of “Ghost Hunters” and also appeared on the second season of “Ghost Nation” on Travel Channel. She has now joined the two in the reboot of “Ghost Hunters” in 2021 on discovery+.

  • ‘Ghost Hunters’: What to Expect From Season 15
  • ‘Ghost Hunters’ Stars Talk ‘Getting Back to Basics’ in ‘Ghost Nation’ (VIDEO)

What better way to ring in 2022 than with the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) and Ghost Hunters . The long-running series settles into its new home January 1 on discovery+ as original crew Jason Hawes , Steve Gonsalves , and Dave Tango join Shari DeBenedetti for a series of new spooky investigations. 

They’ll bring in familiar faces from the supernatural world for many of the 12 episodes to help them uncover the haunts and activity lurking in the shadows of these locales. Here, Gonsalves gives us some of the chilling details in the season to come. 

How would you explain your working dynamic now compared to when you first started together? How much has changed?

Steve Gonsalves: That’s a good question. TAPS has always been a large team. When you have a team that big, you need some structure. In the early days, you had Jason and Grant [Wilson] with me leading the tech side. That was awesome and worked for quite some time. Now we are all hands on deck where we put all of our heads together to get a resolution for our clients. It’s a different dynamic, but everything is exactly the same. Now we focus on the history and getting those facts straight. We always did historical research. We dive so thoroughly it really helps. We ended up finding in some of the investigations coming up that we’re fixing the history for some of the places. 

Is there a particular episode you’re looking forward to viewers checking out most?

There are a few cases I went in thinking we’re going to go in one direction, and quite honestly, they go in the exact opposite. That is quite exciting. In the world of the paranormal, you don’t know when or if something is going to happen. I remember at White Hill Mansion, initially there was really not much happening. Then at the end of the night, everything starts happening. It’s chaos around us. Some of it was actually quite frightening. That’s a place I’m happy we were able to go to. I believe we were the first team to go in with this thorough and professional level to do an investigation there. 

Ghost Hunters Discovery Plus

Rock legend Meat Loaf joins you on the House on Haunted Hill episode. How was having him on the scene again?

I was at a meet-and-greet not too long ago in Las Vegas, and someone said to me that they like how we invited all these guests to the show. They said, “It’s kind of like the old Scooby-Doo episodes in that you never know who is going to pop up on an episode.”  They were right. Meat Loaf is certainly one of our favorites. He has become family. He legitimately loves this stuff. Just having downtime with him and listening to his stories. He’ll tell you all these amazing things that have gone on in his life and everyone he met and worked with. He actually taught me how to play the pipe organ in that case, which was pretty awesome. And if you know him, you get to call him Meat, so that is a lot of fun. 

You also collaborate with other teams, including the Destination Fear gang and even the Ghost Brothers.  

The Destination Fear gang have become very close friends. We worked out of Old Joliet Prison. Bringing their vibe and energy combined with what we did was honestly a one-two punch. We drew out all kinds of stuff. The Ghost Brothers like to think outside the box, which is really cool. To see their eagerness and learn the deeper techniques. We had some amazing things happen. Some of the communications at the [Cresson Sanitorium] were pretty dark. There was a murder there where someone got bludgeoned with a sledgehammer. A lot of awful things. We’re pretty sure we cracked that code. That was one of those episodes we were able to get the history straight. 

Are we ever going to see the Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters crew work together?

I would love that. We’ve all met each other. I’ve hung out with Zak [Bagans] and those guys a few different times. They are really awesome. Whenever you bring two different techniques and protocols and investigation styles, you’re going to be able to really draw a lot out. For whatever reasons, people create this Ghost Adventures and Ghost Hunters or TAPS where it’s one or the other. We get together and have drinks. They are all really nice and super cool. I’m down to work with them. 

It’s never too early to think about a Halloween special. Any destination you’ve always wanted to explore?

We have tossed around a few different ideas. Maybe going back to Waverly Hills, the Disney World of the paranormal. Always things happening. We’ve been there quite enough though. Villisca Axe Murder House is a place that has always intrigued me. The macabre nature of it. We’ve been focusing on private residences and helping people. That has been quite rewarding at this phase of our investigations. In terms of Halloween, a private residence might be a little stale. One of the larger places outdoors like Lake Shawnee would be cool for us to do.

Ghost Hunters Season 14: Release Date, Cast And New Details

"Ghost Hunters" cast members

From the moment it debuted on the Syfy Channel back in 2004, "Ghost Hunters" has made an entire subculture seem, well, less uncool. The show featured a group of relatively attractive young people using high-tech equipment to search for ghosts in the spookiest places in the world. From that moment on, audiences began to view ghost hunters in a more favorable light (though, given their profession, they've never been immune to skepticism). Since the debut of "Ghost Hunters," other shows, like "Ghost Adventures" and "Paranormal State," have attempted to compete with the original ghost hunting show, per The Wrap .

"Ghost Hunters" was created by Craig Piligian, who founded Pilgrim Studios, which is behind other original television shows like " American Chopper " and "Dirty Jobs." In 2013, Piligian told CNN that he was inspired to create "Ghost Hunters" after reading an article in the New York Times about Roto-Rooter plumbers who also offered house calls to fix "paranormal disturbances" on the side. "The same qualities they used to fix a leaky pipe they used in their work to debunk whether or not a place was haunted," Piligian told CNN. "It was almost mechanical in nature, and not so much voodoo." It was this approach that inspired Piligian to approach each alleged haunting in a more "scientific" way.

The show has remained popular for more than a dozen seasons. This is what we know about the upcoming 14th season.

Season 14 will debut on Halloween

Fittingly enough, the 14th season of "Ghost Hunters" will be premiering exclusively on Discovery+ on Halloween (October 31). For the first time since 2016 when he left to form "Ghost Nation," the show's original team leader, Jason Hawes, will be returning to star on the show.

A sneak peek of what's to come in the upcoming season has been posted to the show's official website, promising that the season will be chock full of authentic paranormal encounters (via Ghost Hunters ). "This is the revival of the series that started it all. Discovery+ has given the green light to the iconic series, Ghost Hunters," a Discovery press release stated, per Comic Book . "Original team leader Jason Hawes and Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti are taking back the paranormal reins in epic haunted locations. And don't be surprised to see some familiar faces and special guests join the team on the hunt in this all-new version of the hit series. The 13 one-hour episodes will begin streaming later this year on Discovery+."

Many familiar faces will be returning for the show's 14th season

As the 14th season's promotional video stated, the upcoming season will feature Jason Hawes, the founder of The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) and star of "Ghost Nation," as the leader involved in every paranormal investigation (via Ghost Hunters ). Hawes will be accompanied by his team of paranormal investigators, which includes Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti. 

When "Ghost Hunters" first premiered, it featured both Hawes and Grant Wilson, who took over as the leader of the team when Hawes left to pursue his own artistic endeavors in 2016. The casting switch-ups over the years, which seem to always result in the pair not appearing together on the show, have sparked rumors that Hawes and Wilson are feuding.

Under a comment posted on Hawes' most recent Instagram post about his return to "Ghost Hunters," he revealed why he was returning in Wilson's place in Season 14. "Grant was not fired," Hawes said in a  comment . "He chose to do a show when the network didn't want the entire team. I chose the team first and refused to do a show without them. Loyalty first for me."

Other special guests are slated to make an appearance on the show's 14th season, though their identities have yet to be revealed.

New details about Discovery's spooky and bingeable content

Though Halloween is more than two weeks away, Discovery's impressive roster of spooky shows on Food Network, HGTV, and Travel Channel will likely keep viewers entertained long after the end of autumn. Throughout the month of October, aside from "Ghost Hunters" Season 14, viewers can indulge in other spooky, seasonal treats like "Halloween Baking Championship," "Halloween Wars," "Ghost Adventures: Goldfield Hotel," "Outrageous Pumpkins," "Jack and Kelly Osbourne: Night of Terror," and more, according to a Discovery, Inc press release.

"We combined the ghost-themed series and specials from Food Network and HGTV with Travel Channel's compelling content to curate an incredible season of scary, fun, and bingeable shows across platforms," Kathleen Finch, chief lifestyle brands officer of Discovery, Inc. said in the press release. "With stars like Anthony Anderson, Zak Bagans, Doris Bowman, Alyson Hannigan, Jack and Kelly Osbourne and director Eli Roth bringing the creative for these series and specials to life, fans of Halloween can watch scary stories and visual treats all month long."

Get your fill of the latest season of "Ghost Hunter" by tuning into Discovery+ on Halloween.

Ghost Hunters Season 14 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

Jason Hawes smiling

Spooky season is about to get even spookier! With autumn in full swing, fans of PSLs, pumpkin patches, apple orchards, and harvest hayrides — aka those who love partaking in every fall and Halloween-themed activity — are thriving. For the more daring, fall also means haunted hayrides, scary movie marathons, and ghost hunting . 

Luckily, some of the most well-known paranormal activity seekers, the cast of "Ghost Hunters," is returning with a brand new season just in time for the ghoulish holiday. Jason Hawes, the leader of the ghost-hunting gang announced the return of the former A&E series via  Instagram on September 27, writing, "This is going to be great!" alongside a clip of the Season 14 trailer. The exciting news was also announced on the show's official  website . "The series that launched paranormal TV is finally back on the air!" the main page reads. "For over a decade the Ghost Hunters team stalked the creepiest and dankest haunts on the search for signs of the paranormal. Now they're back and better than ever on discovery+!" 

With an upcoming new season set to premiere on the streaming service owned by Discovery, Inc., Jason and the team are "committed to discovering the truth to give relief to those plagued by paranormal activity," as the "Ghost Hunters"  Twitter  biography reads. For more information on Season 14 of "Ghost Hunters," including the series premiere date, the cast, and show history, keep scrolling.

When will 'Ghost Hunters' Season 14 be released?

"Ghost Hunters" fans should make sure their Discovery+ account is in good standing, because "Ghost Hunters" Season 14 is dropping exclusively on the streaming service on Halloween. The teaser for the upcoming season was released on YouTube on September 27, and showed the spirit-chasing crew as they venture into some bone-chilling places to find paranormal activity. As the trailer states, "Over 15 years of investigating together has led to this moment," and by "[trusting their] skills, experience, and each other," they're bringing together epic experiences in Season 14. 

When Jason shared the trailer on his personal Instagram page, fans were thrilled to find out the long-running series was returning. "This makes me so happy!!!!! I tuned in on episode one of the original 'Ghost Hunters' by accident and haven't stopped watching since," one fan  wrote in the comments section of Jason's post. Another  echoed , "Looking forward to it!!! You guys and gals are AWESOME!!!!" while a third user  proclaimed , "Perfect for Halloween night!"

Who's in the cast for 'Ghost Hunters' Season 14?

Jason Hawes may be the leader of the beloved ghost-hunting gang, but he won't be the only star of "Ghost Hunters" Season 14. As the show's  official website states, the program is returning "with original team members Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti." The four-person crew was also re-introduced in the Season 14 trailer as they appeared on a paranormal adventure. "The supernatural exists, just out of our reach," the narrator says as Jason, Steve, Dave, and Shari make their way through what appears to be a haunted prison. "It's movement in the corner of your eye. A sound down the hall in an empty room. A tap on the shoulder when nobody's there. We don't have the answers. All we can do is ask the questions," the narration continues. 

"Ghost Hunters" is returning to air for the first time in two years. The series first premiered in October 2004 and featured Jason and Grant Wilson — who co-founded The Atlantic Paranormal Society — and others, and aired until October 2016. The show was later revived on A&E in 2019 and ran for two seasons. A third season was still in question by October 2020, according to an Instagram post by Grant. Though Jason wasn't a part of the cast, Grant chased ghosts alongside his group of investigators, which included Daryl Marston, Kristen Luman, Brandon Alvis, Mustafa Gatollari, Brian Murray, and Richel Stratton, according to the network's website .

What happened to Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson working together on 'Ghost Hunters'?

When "Ghost Hunters" first premiered more than 17 years ago, the show starred Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, as well as their group of investigators. However, when A&E revived the program in 2019, Jason was seemingly missing from the cast as a new crew of ghost hunters were introduced by the network. Upon A&E reprising the program with some fresh faces, Jason created a new paranormal-focused show with Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango called "Ghost Nation" on the Travel Channel . Season 1 premiered in October 2019, per IMDb , and the cast grew in Season 2 when Shari DeBenedetti joined.

When it was revealed that Jason, Steve, Dave, and Shari were coming back for "Ghost Hunters," fans were confused by the choice of name. Replying to a fan on Instagram , Jason said he and Grant split up with their own crews in 2019. "He chose to do a show when the network didn't want the entire team. I chose the team first and refused to do a show without them. Loyalty first for me," he wrote.

When it comes to why Jason is now returning with "Ghost Hunters," the TV star explained in another comment reply that "It was our baby." He added, "We would not do it without each other. We 'Steve, Dave, Shari' and others all talked it over and felt it should be ours still."

'Ghost Hunters' Returns in April With New Episodes

Chase down the paranormal when the team comes back to Discovery+ and the Travel Channel.

To say that Discovery+ has built up an arsenal of addictive paranormal shows would be a massive understatement. From pop superstar Kesha ’s travel experiences to bizarre and haunted places in Conjuring Kesha to reruns of the classic college expeditions of Paranormal State , the streamer has built up their collection of all things spooky. Finally, fans of one of the network’s biggest paranormal successes yet, Ghost Hunters can look forward to an array of upcoming episodes that will kick off on Thursday, April 6 at 9 p.m. ET/PT both on the Travel Channel and Discovery+.

Prepare to hook back up with the familiar faces of the TAPS Team - Jason Hawes , Shari DeBenedetti , Steve Gonsalves , and Dave Tango as they bravely go into the unknown to bring audiences more spine-chilling encounters . This time around Discovery+ is joining forces with the Travel Channel to give audiences double the opportunity to bring paranormal adventures into their living rooms. Part travel show, part supernatural investigation, audiences can expect to tag along with the crew as they search for the spirit world inside prisons, mansions, the Hoover Dam, and other locations across the United States.

Along with their ghost-hunting tools, each weekly one-hour episode will see the TAPS Team join forces with a new celebrity guest. Fresh from dodging zombies in The Walking Dead , series star Chandler Riggs will be the first guest to join the team in the season premiere titled “Dead Man Walking.” Traveling to Hanford, California, the TAPS team, along with Riggs and special investigators Satori Hawes and Cody Desbiens , will try to corroborate the town’s shared belief that the abandoned county jail now known as “The Bastille” is haunted. A centerpiece in the town for over 125 years, the building has shifted from a prison to a place of business with each shop eventually closing its doors and reporting hair-raising stories of paranormal activities. Grasping to better understand the gruesome and disturbing tales of the past, the Ghost Hunters team hopes to help the spirits haunting the old jail move on with their afterlives.

Steve Gonsalves Will Not Be Featured on the 'Ghost Hunters' Reboot ... He's Busy Filming Another Paranormal Show

What happened to 'Ghost Hunters' investigator Steve Gonsalves? Here's why he will not be featured on the A&E reboot series.

Gabrielle Bernardini - Author

Apr. 26 2020, Updated 9:54 p.m. ET

The beloved show Ghost Hunters has officially been resurrected. A&E Network made the decision to revive the SYFY series as part of a push toward more paranormal programming. “Paranormal worked really well for us in the past,” executive VP and head of programming of A&E Network, Elaine Frontain Bryant, told The Hollywood Reporter . 

Adding, “It feels like it’s a time in the country where there’s a trend for people to be spiritual without being overly religious. I think paranormal programming can feed that, while being entertainment-forward.” The long-running show will center on OG cast member Grant Wilson and his new team of professional ghost hunters as they search for the truth behind unexplained phenomenons. “I don't chase ghosts,” Grant states in the show’s trailer. “I chase the truth." 

While Ghost Hunters is ready to scare people with new episodes this August, many die-hard fans question what happened to the original team, like Steve Gonsalves .   

What happened to OG Ghost Hunters star Steve Gonsalves?

Yes, paranormal investigator Steve is still chasing ghosts. And, he’s actually going to be competing against his former co-star Grant’s new show. According to his social media , the television personality is currently working on a Travel Channel show called Ghost Nation .

“The trio formerly of Ghost Hunters (Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango) return to television by popular demand for all-new explorations of the other side,” read a statement about the new series on Steve’s Instagram. Additionally, “[the team] will attempt to uncover paranormal evidence like never before, while also debunking false claims. But on these bigger and bolder investigations, the team also will endeavor to track down the true source of hauntings and restore peace and order among the living … and the dead.”

The Massachusetts native is currently in the midst of filming the new Travel Channel series. On June 12, he tweeted a picture of their camera crew capturing footage for the upcoming fall series. 

Aside from working on Ghost Nation , Steve participates in a lot of meet-and-greets and fan events. He travels across the United States appearing at different paranormal conventions and ghost hunting events. 

Meet the cast of the new Ghost Hunters reboot.

With the former Ghost Hunters stars filming a new paranormal series, a whole different team of experts were called in for the A&E reboot. Leading 230 episodes worth of investigations, Grant will continue to use his paranormal expertise to search for the truth behind the unexplainable.  

Other team members include: Daryl Marston (co-lead investigator), Kristin Luman (paranormal researcher), Brandon Alvis (paranormal technician), Mustafa Gatollari (historian), and investigators Brian Murray and Richel Stratton. Fans of the 2000's series were excited to learn about the show's reboot. "So happy to see Grant is back! He has such a calmness about him that I enjoy over the more excitable type Ghost Hunters ! Can’t wait," tweeted one fan. Another wrote, "Just gotta say again, I'm so excited that y'all r back. Ghost Hunters was and still is my fav show. I never missed an episode then, and I sure as heck won't be missing an episode now!! 

Catch the hauntingly good show Ghost Hunters premiering August 21 at 9 p.m. on A&E.

Best Paranormal Investigation TV Shows Like Ghost Hunters

Posted: December 29, 2023 | Last updated: December 30, 2023

Paranormal investigation shows have been a staple of reality television for decades. This sub-genre of reality television draws in all sorts of fans, from hardcore horror buffs to casual enjoyers of paranormal happenings. What makes the sub-genre stand out, though, is the extreme passion people have for uncovering the truth. Anything that investigates what may or may not be real is bound to draw the attention of even the most hardcore skeptics.

Dozens of television shows and movies explore this subject. This creates a wide range from traditional-style ghost-hunting shows, like the classic Ghost Hunters , to documentary-style recounts of actual paranormal events, like A Haunting and 28 Days Haunted . Not all paranormal investigation shows are equal, but some stand above the rest.

28 Days Haunted Visits The Most Haunted Locations in America

28 days haunted.

Three teams spend 28 days in some of the most haunted locations in the United States for an experiment based on the theories of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.

  • Released in 2022, 28 Days Haunted streams on Netflix.
  • Audience reception to the show was mixed, but it gets points for breaking the mold.

28 Days Haunted is one of the more unique entries in the paranormal investigation subgenre. This Netflix miniseries first aired in October 2022, and it focused on three teams sent to some of the most haunted locations in the United States. These teams consisted of the North Carolina team, the Colorado team, and the Connecticut team.

These three teams set up experiments based on Ed and Lorraine Warren's work, which has been adapted into The Conjuring franchise . If those names sound familiar, it's because Ed and Lorraine Warren are infamous real-life paranormal investigators. While 28 Days Haunted received mixed reviews from viewers, it deserves recognition for how it broke the subgenre's formula. If nothing else, the show is sure to spook its viewers.

Ghost Adventures Has a Charismatic Lead Investigator

Ghost adventures.

Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley, and Jay Wasley, travel around the United States investigating haunted spots in search of paranormal activity.

  • Released in 2008, Ghost Adventures is still ongoing with 28 seasons, and counting.
  • It is one of the OG paranormal investigation shows, with a positive audience reception.

10 Scariest Episodes Of Paranormal TV Shows, Ranked

Ghost Adventures is one of the earlier shows that perfected the paranormal investigation format. Fans often argue about whether Ghost Adventures or Ghost Hunters is the superior show. Ghost Adventures is generally considered to be a great addition to the genre. The lead investigator, Zak Bagans, is charismatic and explains everything to the audience in a way that makes them feel like they're part of the investigation, rather than making them feel preached at.

Zak Bagans, along with his colleagues, is knowledgeable, knows how to handle dangerous situations, and has a great camera presence. Ghost Adventures also delivers some terrifying scares and a creepy atmosphere while hunting for evidence of ghosts. There will always be arguments about whether the hauntings are staged, but Ghost Adventures does a great job of making it feel authentic.

A Haunting Paved the Way For Future Paranormal TV Shows

A Haunting is a horror/drama anthology that shows dramatizations of paranormal experiences according to eyewitnesses. It features all kinds of encounters, such as possesions, ghosts, and exorcisms.

  • A Haunting premiered in 2005, and it was one of the first documentary-style paranormal shows.
  • It ran for 11 seasons.

A Haunting built on the Ghost Hunters formula by taking it one step further. Instead of simply sending paranormal investigators into a supposedly haunted location, A Haunting sought out victims of real-life hauntings. This show featured testimony from people who went through hauntings and other paranormal encounters and lived to tell the tale.

The series recounted allegedly real stories and provided dramatized recreations that set the scene and added a visual recount of events for the audience to watch. Watching A Haunting felt more like watching a supernatural horror movie than a paranormal investigation series. Knowing that these events allegedly happened made audiences feel uneasy watching the stories. Many shows copied this formula going forward because A Haunting proved to be so popular.

Celebrity Ghost Stories Put a Spin on a Well-Loved Formula

Celebrity ghost stories.

Celebrities talk about paranormal experiences that they've had.

  • Celebrity Ghost Stories ran for 6 seasons after its 2009 premiere, putting a fun celebrity twist on the subgenre.

Celebrity Ghost Stories added an interesting layer to A Haunting's formula by focusing on ghost stories told by celebrities. This show recounted celebrities' experiences with ghosts, the occult, witchcraft, and other paranormal events that took place in their lives. Some of the most recognizable celebrities appeared on this show, including Joan Rivers, Carrie Fisher, John Waters, Alice Cooper, and Phyllis Diller.

Reality television usually centers on celebrities to some degree. The Real Housewives , for example, usually include at least a few women who are already well-known before their run on the show. Keeping Up With the Kardashians is another great example, so mixing celebrities into the paranormal investigation sub-genre just makes sense.

Expedition Bigfoot Delves Into a Different Kind of Ghostly

Expedition bigfoot.

Harrowing experience and pioneering endeavor in an undisclosed, remote location in a 90,000-acre swath of land in central Oregon.

  • Expedition Bigfoot has four seasons, with a fifth on the way.
  • It focuses on the shadowy Bigfoot legend, not traditional ghosts.

9 Reality Shows With Bizarre Premises That Didn't Work

When talking about paranormal investigation TV shows, most of them focus on investigating hauntings or possessions. Ghosts, demons, and other similar entities are par for the course in these types of shows, but the paranormal doesn't just refer to these ghostly entities. The term paranormal also covers topics like superstitions and monsters that may or may not exist. One of the most infamous examples of one such monster is Bigfoot.

Every year, hundreds of people report seeing Bigfoot in remote areas. Bigfoot is a large and hairy creature that walks on two legs and resembles both a man and an ape. Most people write off Bigfoot off as a myth, but if Bigfoot isn't real, how can so many people claim to have seen such a creature with their own eyes? Expeditions Bigfoot seeks to answer this question with a team of researchers who investigate the possibility of Bigfoot's existence. Since this show focuses on searching for a cryptic creature rather than proving ghosts exist, it stands out from the pack.

The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch Spooks Audiences to The Core

The secret of skinwalker ranch.

A team of experts and scientists undertakes exhaustive research at Skinwalker Ranch, an infamous location for paranormal activity and UFO sightings.

  • The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch was released in 2020 and has four seasons, and counting.
  • Audience reception to the paranormal show has been largely positive.

Any paranormal buff has likely heard of Skinwalker Ranch, also known as Sherman Ranch. Skinwalker Ranch is located near Ballard, Utah, and it's a 512-acre property that's infamous for UFO sightings as well as paranormal activity. Skinwalker Ranch is part of an area known as "UFO Alley" and has been since the 1950s, when strange events were first noticed in the area.

Skinwalker Ranch gets its name from a Navajo legend about a skin-walker, which is a harmful being capable of shape-shifting and possessing animals. The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch runs in a similar vein to Expedition Bigfoot , where a team of scientists and other experts explore the ranch, searching for answers. Although this property gained real traction in the 1950s, it has a bizarre history dating back over 200 years. People have reported seeing UFOs, finding strangely mutated animals, and much more.

Haunted Deals with the Paranormal and its Consequences

A chilling glimpse into the first-person accounts from people who have witnessed horrifying, peculiar, extraordinary supernatural events and other unexplained phenomena that continue to haunt them.

  • While Haunted doesn't rate as high as some other shows, it pushed boundaries that others didn't, with a refreshing take on exploring paranormal activities and their lasting effects.
  • It ran for three seasons.

Haunted is similar to shows like A Haunting and The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch . It tells first-person accounts of some of the most terrifying and awful stories a person can imagine, and it has a pretty impressive producer behind it as well. Haunted was produced by the same team that brought the world The Purge , a horror franchise that's thrived over the last decade.

Haunted pushes boundaries that some other paranormal shows are too afraid to cross, including the reality that not every unbelievable or unthinkable event that happens is a product of the supernatural. While the show talks about paranormal experiences as expected, it also explores the lasting effects that trauma inflicted by real people causes and how it haunts the victim long after.

Paranormal Witness is an Acclaimed Horror Reality Show

Paranormal witness.

A true horror documentary series which brings to life the stories of people who have lived through paranormal experiences that defy explanation.

  • IMDb gives Paranormal Witness a 7.8 out of 10, which is one of the highest ratings for a show of this genre.

10 Modern Horror Movies That Became Instant Classics

Paranormal Witness is a documentary-style paranormal investigation show that is considered one of the best out there. Although the series only ran for five seasons, it's often referred to by fans of the genre as a must-watch. When Googling this particular show, even its description warns viewers who are easily scared not to watch Paranormal Witness alone.

This show utilizes personal testimonies, photos, and videos to bring paranormal events to life. Paranormal Witness also includes stories of all kinds, not just ghost stories. UFO sightings and alien abductions, poltergeists, and much more await anyone brave enough to watch this series.

The Haunting of Hill House is Based on Real Paranormal Investigators that Shirley Jackson Researched

The haunting of hill house.

Flashing between past and present, a fractured family confronts haunting memories of their old home and the terrifying events that drove them from it.

  • The Haunting of Hill House is a horror and drama miniseries that streams on Netflix.
  • It alternates between between supernatural and psychological horror.

The Haunting of Hill House is a bit different from the other shows mentioned because it's not a reality television show: it's a drama and horror show based on Shirley Jackson's 1959 novel of the same name. Unlike most of the entries on this list, The Haunting of Hill House isn't presented as a ghost investigation show or a documentary-style show, it's told as a story and follows two timelines. One timeline takes place during the Hill House haunting, and the other shows the victims in the future still struggling with the impact of the events.

The story is based on real paranormal investigators that Shirley Jackson researched, which inspired her to write the story. The Haunting of Hill House isn't 100% factual but has plenty of scary scenes . The story is designed to be entertaining and chilling first, but its bones are rooted in fact.

Ghost Hunters is The Original Paranormal Investigative Show

Ghost hunters.

Follows the Ghost Hunters team as they cross the country searching for answers in the nation's most haunted locations.

  • Released in 2004, Ghost Hunters set the tone for the paranormal investigation genre.
  • The series is still ongoing with sixteen seasons, and it has several spin-offs.

Ghost Hunters is one of the most recognizable names in the world of paranormal investigation television and for good reason. Ghost Hunters created the mold for paranormal investigation shows and to this day, it's still referenced as the show that popularized the subgenre and made way for so many more shows like it.

While Ghost Hunters may not be everyone's favorite paranormal investigation show, the fact that it's still around after all these years proves how good it is. Whether someone prefers another show, like Paranormal Witness or Ghost Adventures , they have to give credit to the show that started it all. Without Ghost Hunters , many of these shows wouldn't exist.

Ghosts season 3's new story update follows up on major mystery & season 2 cliffhanger.

New details about Ghosts season 3 follow up on the CBS sitcom's cliffhanger, offering hints about what's next for Sam, Jay, and the overall ensemble.

  • Ghosts season 3 will follow up on the season 2 cliffhanger of which character crossed over to the other side.
  • The premiere will also involve Sam and Jay's plan to turn their barn into a restaurant.
  • The Ghosts cast have received pay increases for season 3, suggesting that none of the main spirits have crossed over yet.

New details about Ghosts season 3 follows up on a major cliffhanger. An adaptation of the British series with the same name, the CBS version debuted in 2021. It focuses on married couple Samantha ( iZombie star Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar, Never Have I Ever) and chronicles what happens to their lives when Samantha has a near-death experience and starts to communicate with spirits.

Now, with the Ghosts season 3 premiere roughly a month away, there are new hints about which spirit got "sucked off" at the end of season 2. In the show's parlance, getting sucked off has a less NSFW meaning, but rather refers to when a ghost crosses over to the other side. According to TV Insider , the season 3 premiere will directly follow up on which character crossed over . Along with this news, three new images from the season 3 premiere have also been released. Check them out, below:

Ghosts season 3 debuts Thursday, February 15 at 9 PM ET on CBS.

What To Know About Ghosts Season 3

The logline for the season 3 premiere promises that Sam, Jay, and the remaining ghosts will have to unravel the mystery of which spirit crossed over. And, continuing the show's more episodic nature, Sam and Jay will have to relocate an owl in order to turn their barn into a restaurant for Jay. The first half of the premiere, which addresses the cliffhanger, goes back to when Sam and Jay are sitting in their car outside their estate only to see a bright light, seemingly indicating one of the characters crossing over.

It's also worth noting that the Ghosts cast secured pay increases ahead of season 3. According to reporting from Deadline , McIver and Ambudkar's paychecks doubled to $250,000 an episode. The ensemble playing the ghosts — Brandon Scott Jones (Isaac), Richie Moriarty (Pete), Danielle Pinnock (Alberta), Asher Grodman (Trevor), Román Zaragoza (Sasappis), Sheila Carrasco (Flower), Rebecca Wisocky (Hetty) and Devan Chandler Long (Thorfinn) — were mentioned as earning $100,000 an episode for the upcoming season.

Ghosts Season 2 Finale: What It Means For The Show's New Episodes

The news further solidifies Ghosts as a big hit for CBS. The sitcom ranks as the second most-watched comedy on broadcast, in a close battle with the soon-to-be-concluded Young Sheldon . But the pay increase may well suggest that none of the main spirits have yet crossed over, which opens up the door to the other minor characters that have recurred on the show.

Ghosts is available to watch on Paramount+.

Ghosts (US)

Premiering in 2021, the series focuses on married couple Samantha (Rose McIver) and Jay (Utkarsh Ambudkar), who have inherited a mansion from one of Sam's distant relatives. They turn the house into a bed and breakfast. When Sam has a near-death experience, she begins to interact with the quirky group of ghosts who live in the mansion.
