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

Ghost Hunters TV Show
The paranormal hit Ghost Hunters originally aired in 2004, and its eleven-season run lasted until 2016! And they’ve even had various reboots and spinoffs since the show’s original airing. So there’s no denying that there was an enormous demand for this type of creepy content on television, and Ghost Hunters hit all the marks.
It was a show revolving around a team of paranormal investigators or, as the show was aptly named, “ghost hunters.” This team would make their way through various locations in the dead of night, using their equipment to try and detect paranormal activity. And, of course, cameras followed wherever they went.
This show was one of the first introductions the world had to paranormal reality tv, which may be why it’s still such a well-known show.
The First Air Date
The first episode of Ghost Hunters aired on the Sci-Fi network on October 6, 2004. Sci-Fi, owned by NBCUniversal Television and would eventually be rebranded as Syfy, was the perfect home for this show primarily because it specializes in horror, among other similar genres.
Creation and Production
The prominent players in Ghost Hunters’ creation, production, and direction are as follows:
The series was created due to Jason Hawes’ and Grant Wilson’s formation of The Atlantic Paranormal Society , or TAPS, which the show was based around and featured.
As far as producers go, of course, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson both produced many episodes. But the series’ largest executive producer, who was responsible for most episodes, was Alan David.
Various directors took part in the show, including:
- Mark Marinaccio
- Richard Monahan
- Peter Zasuly
- Gabriel Knight
- Ivan Dudynsky
- Jay Bluemke
The main cast of Ghost Hunters is as follows:
- Jason Hawes — A plumber from Rhode Island that ended up co-forming TAPS and becoming one of the stars of Ghost Hunters and Ghost Nation because of his involvement.
- Grant Wilson — An art director that developed a gaming company with a co-founder. He also co-formed TAPS, becoming a star alongside Jason Hawes.
- Steve Gonsalves — An actor and producer with a love of horror who appropriately joined the cast of Ghost Hunters .
- Dave Tango — An actor within the horror genre, much like Gonsalves, aptly joined the Ghost Hunters cast.
- Amy Bruni — An actress who has appeared in multiple paranormal shows.
- Mike Rowe (Narrator) — A professional television host who narrated a large portion of Ghost Hunters episodes.
Primary Focus of the Show
The Ghost Hunters cast mostly investigated reportedly haunted locations during the show’s run and would only explore where people had previously complained of paranormal activity taking place. Most times, the paranormal activity (or hauntings) was reported by the location’s owner.
Each investigation would start with the team exploring the area alongside the owners while discussing reportedly paranormal encounters that they’d had at the location.
Then the team would set up their equipment, which usually consisted of tools to take the electromagnetic field and temperature readings, digital voice recorders for EVPs , and digital video cameras.
They would then proceed to try to coax activity from the paranormal presence to gather information.
Afterward, they would review any evidence they collected. After reviewing the data, they would have one last talk with the location owners, where they’d share their findings and suggest how to deal with any activity they may have encountered.
The TAPS investigative team were believers in the paranormal, but they also went about their investigations with a fairly logical outlook. And have been known to explain that sometimes apparent paranormal activity can have reasonable explanations. Although they’ve also stated some paranormal activity they’ve experienced, they believe it to be authentic.
Ghost Hunter’s Impact on the Paranormal Community
Ghost Hunters was a massive hit, with the ratings to prove it. It was one of its network’s highest-rated reality television shows throughout its run. And for a time, it was the highest-rated paranormal show on television itself!
Part of the reason why the show was so popular was that the audience loved the subject matter. This popularity was the first time a paranormal television show was being marketed as reality TV, and it made the idea of things like ghosts and hauntings feel real to the viewers. They found it thrilling.
The arrival of Ghost Hunters was also huge for the paranormal community because it gave them some real representation for the first time. And it caused many other paranormal-based TV shows to be made, providing that community with even more content to enjoy.
Overall, Ghost Hunters normalized TV shows based around other worldly matters, which was great news for fans of the paranormal.
Ghost Hunter’s Seasons and Episodes
Originally, Ghost Hunters ran for eleven seasons, spanning from 2004 to 2016. Those episodes all aired on the Syfy channel, as previously discussed.
But Ghost Hunters has also been rebooted several times, with more short seasons airing on A&E, a season on Discovery+, and one other on the Travel Channel.
This means that, in all, Ghost Hunters has had fifteen seasons. And their episode count is currently at 249! They’ve also had several live shows and holiday specials throughout their run.
Most Popular and Well-Rated Episodes
Some episodes have performed better than others. But the following twenty were some of the most highly rated on IMDB.
- “Grant Is Back”
- “Ghost Hunters Return To Waverly Hills”
- “Proof Of Afterlife”
- “The Glenn Family Curse”
- “Manor Of Mystery”
- “Nightmare Camp”
- “Hospital Horror”
- “Haunted Lighthouse”
- “Alone In Alaska”
- “Haunted Hospital”
- “The Lady In The Window”
- “Dancing With The Dead”
- “Haunted By Heroes”
- “Overdue For Death”
- “Stanley Hotel”
- “Haunting Of The Garde”
- “You’ve Been Warned”
- “Darker Learning”
- “School Spirit”
- “Public Poltergeist Number One”
Ghost Hunters didn’t have a wide array of famous guests on their show, and it mostly centered around the core investigative cast. But one of their most notable guests was Meat Loaf, who appeared on “ Ghost Hunters: The Haunted House On The Hill .” This was actually one of Meat Loaf’s final television appearances before his death.
Controversies & Criticisms
As would be expected from a show that centers around something as controversial as the paranormal, Ghost Hunters had its fair share of criticisms. Both from people who disagreed with the subject matter and those who felt that the Ghost Hunters cast was faking certain incidents.
On the skeptic’s side of things, one of the largest cases of criticism happened in 2008 when Ghost Hunters won The Truly Terrible Television Award (TTTV) from the Independent Investigations Group. The reason is that Ghost Hunters was “peddling” things like “pseudoscience and superstition” to their fans.
As for ‘controversies,’ one of the most notable examples happened concerning a Ghost Hunters live show on Halloween 2008. During this live show, two events took place that many people claimed to be fake.
The first event was when one of the star’s collars was repeatedly pulled down, although he never visibly touched it. And the second was when an unexplained voice eerily said, “You’re not supposed to be here.”
Critics were enraged over these two instances, although the two stars of the show claim that their contracts for the show don’t allow them to fake evidence for entertainment purposes. So their official statement is that everything seen on Ghost Hunters is real.
The response to all of this was split. Some people remained avid fans of the show, while some felt that Ghost Hunters lost some credibility after the incident. But as seen by the consistent ratings, it lost none of its popularity even after the controversies.
Ghost Hunters fans are looking forward to new episodes of the show coming in April of 2023. Many old cast members are returning for this, and those episodes will be airing on Discovery+ and the Travel Channel.
But even aside from new Ghost Hunters episodes, because of the show’s impact on the paranormal entertainment space, many new ghost hunting reality TV shows have hit the screen since then. So, fans of this genre have plenty of content they could’ve never dreamed of before it first aired.
And despite the controversial nature of the show and its genre, it is a show that’s loved and appreciated by many. And it was, and is, a true pioneer in the entertainment space.
Final Thoughts on Ghost Hunters TV Show
So, all in all, Ghost Hunters was a game-changer for fans of the paranormal. And it reinvented the space to include more reality-based content. Through this, it gained a multitude of fans, and its popularity is still present to this day!
The episodes are compelling, even for those who aren’t believers in the paranormal, because of the stories of the locations and the overall entertainment factor of all things scary and spooky.
If you’re a fan of the paranormal or anything just mentioned, you could also check out some other reality paranormal TV shows. Some great recommendations would be Paranormal Lockdown , The Dead Files , and Kindred Spirits .

Ranking Ghost-Hunting Shows From Ghoulish to Down Right Silly
See where ghost adventures , ghost hunters and more land on our list of top ghost-hunting shows..
Nothing screams Halloween like a good ghost-hunting show.
So with All Hallows' Eve only a week away, we decided it was time to take a closer look at the paranormal reality shows that make those little hairs on the back of our neck stand up . We know not everyone believes in ghosts and ghouls, which is why we're examining both the series that take themselves seriously and the shows unafraid to have a little fun.
For instance, Buzzfeed Unsolved: Supernatural launched its seventh and final season on Oct. 15. And even after countless investigations, hosts Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej still come off as amateur ghost hunters—in the best way. The longtime partners are unafraid to roast themselves while touring infamous locations—like the allegedly possessed Conjuring house —leaving us entertained while hoping for a ghost to pop up.
On the flip side, there's Zak Bagans ' Ghost Adventures series, which follows the famed investigator as he uses top-notch equipment to investigate fear-inducing spots.
"We don't play the part of paranormal investigators—I can't speak for other paranormal shows," Bagans told E! News in an exclusive interview . "I can just speak for myself, my show, my team and what we do. I mean, we're supposed to be doing this, I had a calling to do this."
These two examples, which couldn't be more different, are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the spooktacular genre.
For a closer look at the top ghost-hunting shows, see our official ranking below!
Haunted Towns , which had two seasons on Destination American between 2017 and 2019, followed a group of paranormal investigators—known as the Tennessee Wraith Chasers—as they traveled to the country's most, you guessed it, haunted towns in the hope of trapping ghosts. You may recognize the TWC from their previous paranormal series, Ghost Asylum .
Both shows had spine-chilling locales, but their tendency toward hokey dialogue made them not as enjoyable as their competitors. Their passion and dedication were certainly present, yet, we never found ourselves invested in the TWC.
Ghost Brothers was unafraid to lean into the humor while hunting down the paranormal. Starring best friends Dalen Spratt , Juwan Mass and Marcus Harvey , the trio toured reportedly haunted locales—all while roasting their rivals. In the intro, one Ghost Brother quipped, "Why is everybody white?"
For a laugh-out-loud series that also delves into the world of the supernatural, catch the only two seasons of Ghost Brothers , which aired on Destination American and TLC, respectively, between 2016 and 2017.
When Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej embarked on their Unsolved series for Buzzfeed's YouTube page, they had no idea that they'd soon begin investigating whether or not ghosts are real. Being amateur paranormal investigators, Bergara and Madej's quest proves to be more a comedy than a serious ghost-hunting show.
Nonetheless, the dynamic between believer Bergara and skeptic Madej is wildly entertaining, which has allowed the content creators to bank seven entertaining seasons. (Don't forget, Bergara and Madej have a new series, Ghost Files , heading to their Watcher YouTube channel.)
If Kindred Spirits seems familiar to you, it's likely because you recognize stars Adam Berry and Amy Bruni from their previous ghost-hunting series, aptly titled Ghost Hunters . Putting a twist on the classic paranormal show formula, Berry and Bruni investigate homes to see if the undead dwellers are connected to the families that live there.
Kindred Spirits , which first debuted in 2016, has called several networks home, including Destination America, TLC, Travel Channel and Discovery+.
Though Paranormal State was a hit after its debut in 2007 on the A&E Network, the series may not be as fear-inducing on second watch. Ryan Buell and his Paranormal Research Society investigated several haunted locations over the course of six seasons, but unlike the ghost-hunting shows of today, there was little tangible evidence integrated into the show.
We honestly can't believe Scariest Places on Earth only had five seasons. Hosted by The Exorcist 's Linda Blair and narrated by Teen Witch 's Zelda Rubinstein , the Fox Family series had a scare-tastic formula, which included sending regular people into allegedly haunted locales.
Though this show wasn't meant to definitively prove whether ghosts were real, there were some fun scares along the way.
It's safe to say that the original Ghost Hunters is one of the most famous paranormal shows in TV history. The show's initial run on SyFy included 11 seasons, 230 episodes and 10 specials. Ghost Hunters also spawned several spin-offs, including Ghost Nation , UFO Hunters , Ghost Hunters Academy and Ghost Hunters International .
The series was later revived on A&E in 2019 with original star Grant Wilson and a new crop of investigators, which used a slew of technology to try to connect with the paranormal.
Ghost Hunters may've launched the ghost-hunting genre into global fame, but it's Zak Bagans ' Ghost Adventures that has perfected the storytelling style. With a documentary-film background, Bagans has curated 22 seasons of action-packed peeks into the world of the paranormal.
After 13 years on the Travel Channel, Ghost Adventures has since found a new home on discovery+, introducing a whole new generation to Bagans' investigations into famously haunted spots. If you're looking for a lengthy binge with lots of intrigue, Ghost Adventures is the show for you!

15 '28 Days Haunted' (2022)
Netflix's docuseries and one of the more recent ghost shows, 28 Days Haunted centers on four teams of brave paranormal investigators, who travel through some of America's most haunted locations in order to execute a paranormal experiment based on the theories of Ed and Lorraine Warren .
While the 2022 show doesn't count on flawless execution (and features mixed reviews), it still manages to send chills down many spines . Though some members of the audience don't believe that what happens through the episodes is real, it still helps keep boredom at bay.
Watch on Netflix
14 'Ghost Wars' (2017 - 2018)
Created by simon barry.
Two seasons in, this Netflix series starring scene-stealers Kim Coates and Vincent D'Onofrio has its pros and cons in terms of providing creepy material. On one hand, the entire show is fiction; on the other, it's full of ghosts, so if audiences are looking to scratch that paranormal content itch, they're in the right place. The series is about a small Alaskan town in which all residents are trapped, experiencing non-stop obstacles from evil spirits who wish to do harm – and lots of it.
The dialogue is a little awkward at times, and the pacing can feel stunted, but the ghosts! So many ghosts. For fans of action (as the title clearly states), there will be guns and blood and car crashes, but the show can also be alarmingly frightening at times, so if you're looking for a good jump scare , you're in the right place .

13 'Surviving Death' (2021)
Directed by ricki stern.
Another Netflix original series, Surviving Death , is different from the others on the list, as it focuses on a variety of topics: mediums, signs from the dead, reincarnation, ghosts, and even interviews with individuals who died yet lived to tell the tale. In short, no two episodes are alike.
Part talking-head documentary, part educational programming (100% creepy as hell), this series, aside from being fascinating, works well in giving goosebumps because of how sincere each person is in recollecting their encounter. Also featuring medical doctors and other learned professionals, the paranormal show provides an iron-clad ethos that is both difficult to argue with and extraordinarily unsettling . Sleep tight.
12 'The Secret of Crickley Hall' (2012)
Directed by joe ahearne.
The BBC three-part series , also streaming on Amazon, is based on the novel by James Herbert and begins with the screams of a young boy. It's a tragic tale: a young child goes missing from a playground, and the couple tries to cope with the immeasurable loss. In their grief, they choose to move with their other young children to a sprawling estate in the middle of nowhere. Soon, they realize they've moved into a former orphanage, where unspeakable horrors occurred.
Featuring some familiar faces, such as a young Maisie Williams and Lucifer 's Tom Ellis , the frightening series offers a quick pace and an even quicker heartbeat. Featuring flashbacks of the orphanage's last days, coupled with suspenseful and frightening happenings within the home, the series is as creepy as it is tense and tragic .
Watch on Prime Video
11 'Paranormal Investigators: Phasmophobia' (2020)
Directed by atila kaldy.
From Australia, this reality series features psychic Andrea Kaldy , who investigates well-known haunted areas to determine if they are, in fact, haunted – be it by ghosts, poltergeists, or even demonic entities.
After investigating, Kaldy invites 3 participants to enter the location alone and complete a challenge before they are able to leave – unless they run scared, first. Perfect for fans of ghost shows, the creepy content doesn't begin straight away but rest assured, it will. The show is squeal-worthy , mainly because watching people get scared can also be terrifying. The question is, are the participants (and audiences) jumping to conclusions?

10 'Ghost Hunters' (2004 - )
Directed by mark marinaccio.
A classic in the genre of ghost hunting shows with many still tuning in to watch it, Ghost Hunters features Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson , the founding members of The Atlantic Paranormal Society or TAPS, as they search for paranormal activity around the United States. Popular for over a decade, the series has had a dedicated following for being one of the first shows of its kind.
There are some 14 seasons in all, and what makes them so successful is undoubtedly the men's use of compelling evidence by way of video footage in the show , electromagnetic field (EMF) readers, sound recordings, and eyewitness accounts – many of which terrified audiences get to see themselves (if they haven't covered their eyes in fear, that is).

9 'The Enfield Haunting' (2015)
Directed by kristoffer nyholm.
This three-part limited series wastes no time in creeping out its audience. Set in 1977 and based on a true story, the show surrounds a mother and her three children who are terrorized by an angry poltergeist. When paranormal investigators arrive, played by Timothy Spall and Matthew Macfadyen , things go from bad to worse.
Nominated for 2 BAFTAs, The Enfield Haunting is chock-full of suspense and screams. One could argue that the muted brown and orange tones or the involvement of children is the cause of its fear factor, but it's more likely the sheer evil of the unwelcoming house guest that causes the lasting chills . It's telling that the true events also inspired The Conjuring 2 .
8 'Paranormal' (2020)
Directed by amr salama and majid al ansari.
Based on the novels by Dr. Ahmed Khaled Tawfik , Netflix's first Egyptian Arabic original series provides a different tone to the mix: its protagonist, Dr. Ismail ( Ahmed Amin ), is a mild-mannered and close-lipped man, determined to neglect his past paranormal experiences and instead focus on verifiable causes and effects. An unlikely skeptic, he is unwillingly brought back into the world of his past just as a former love comes back to Cairo.
Set in both 1940 and 1969, the backdrop of the Arab-Israeli war and the upheaval it causes serves to mirror Ismail's own uncertainty, especially when his nephew begins to experience eerily similar haunting experiences. Beautifully shot and sickening at the same time , this series goes to show why Tawfik sold millions and millions of hair-raising copies.
7 'The Holzer Files' (2019 - )
Produced by rob saffi.
When it comes to paranormal TV shows, The Holzer Files is definitely worth mentioning. The horror mystery series follows a team of investigators who unearth the terrifying true hauntings from the case files of America's first parapsychologist best known for his plethora of hundreds of cases dealing with the occult, Dr. Hans Holzer .
The Holzer Files is assuredly an interesting take on Holzer's files, providing audiences with an intriguingly spooky time in the meantime. Additionally, it is also very refreshing and different from other shows of the genre.
6 'A Haunting' (2005 - )

2 'The Haunting of Hill House' (2018)
Created by mike flanagan.
Based on the novel of the same name by acclaimed horror writer Shirley Jackson , and directed by Mike Flanagan, The Haunting of Hill House has proven to be one of Netflix's most popular series . In it, audiences meet the Crain siblings as they gather for the funeral of one of their own. Together for the first time in years, it does not take long before the ghosts of their past come back to haunt them – literally.
Though there are sometimes dramatic stretches between big scares, the story delivers its full-fledged creepiness in its mixture of flashbacks and real-time storylines that both serve to scare and tug at one's heartstrings. Undeniably, however, it has made worldwide audiences unable to close their eyes when they go to bed for fear of the Bent-Neck Lady.
The Haunting of Hill House
1 'haunted' (2018 -), directed by jan pavlacky.
This Netflix show has everything: true ghost stories, creepy imagery, and jump-worthy reenactments. In it, people deeply affected by paranormal trauma participate in a round-table discussion of sorts with their friends and/or family members in between dramatic renditions of their terrifying tales.
At times, families have yet to disclose details to one another, which leads to emotional TV, while friends of the victims are often visibly shaken. What stands out is the production value (especially in Season 3), as it is very high, so the reenactments are often as sinister as they are cinematic .
NEXT: Scariest Horror Movies That Are Too Disturbing To Re-Watch
10 best ghost hunting paranormal reality tv shows.
Ghost Hunters launched back in 2004, introducing viewers to paranormal reality TV. Many other exciting and spooky ghost-themed series followed.
It may be nearly summertime, but spooky shows don't need to be relegated to the Halloween season. Creepy shows, such as the recent Conjuring Kesha or Zak Bagan’s annual Ghost Adventures Halloween Special, enchant viewers year-round. They'll keep anyone up all night, contemplating what they know about the afterlife.
Regarding paranormal reality TV, Ghost Hunters set the stage for the rise of several phantom-seeking shows. Episodes were filled with adrenaline-fueled action and tense investigations. Even the most skeptical viewers will sleep with one eye open after a night of binging any of these haunting reality series. With new shows such as Paramormal Frequency or Lockwood & Co. in the mix, revisiting the ten best ghost-hunting series is recommended.
Help! My House Is Haunted
Following a group of paranormal researchers in the United Kingdom, Help! My House Is Haunted investigates the homes of everyday people witnessing chilling, unexplained hauntings. Created by Ghost Adventures' Zak, the series inspects places plagued by paranormal entities, in order to gauge their authenticity fully. Unlike most ghost shows that are filmed in the United States, Help! My House Is Haunted explores the ominous events of a different country, which is sometimes tied to the nation's significant and rich history.
Ghost Asylum (2014–16)
Ghost Asylum rejects the usually broad scope of ghost-hunting shows. It focuses its energy solely on allegedly haunted asylums, which always seem to be hot spots for activity in every single paranormal reality series. Though the show may have lost its longevity by choosing this route, it enriched each episode with the pasts of the facilities in question. They were often home to the most tragic and horrific stories, as patients were mistreated. Furthermore, the show offers a unique group of investigators called the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, whose passionate personalities are entertaining.
Dead Famous: Ghostly Encounters (2004–06)
As a celebrity-fueled paranormal reality show that aired for just three seasons, Dead Famous: Ghostly Encounters portrayed the high-octane quests of a clairvoyant and skeptic. They searched for the spirits of dead celebrities. Using elements of music and stagecraft, the two journeyed across America, attempting to gain contact with world-class entertainers like Frank Sinatra. At the same time, they sought to validate the existence of life after death, and the presence of thought-to-be-gone famous personalities. Their efforts are unlike any ghost series, packing on another layer of challenge.
Paranormal State (2007–11)
Led by Ryan Buell, Paranormal State is the only ghost-hunting show featuring a student paranormal research society of a university, Pennsylvania State. The club featured a revolving cast, as they dissected the supposed hauntings of American locations. What made the show truly special was the intense personalities of its cast, and the incorporation of their hectic college lives. As the show progresses, viewers are introduced to the second story arc. A demon allegedly follows Ryan throughout his life, making it that much more compelling.
Portals To Hell (2019–2022)
Following in the footsteps of many other ghost-hunting shows, Jack Osbourne capitalizes on his fame to investigate potential portals to the netherworld. They're located in some of the most haunted areas on Earth. Instead of concentrating on specific spirits, Portals to Hell examines the origins of the hauntings, and the complex history behind them. From once-slave plantations to wells that may cloak demons, the charismatic Jack and his crew risk possession and harm to bring the audience evidence of evil spirits.
Paranormal Lockdown (2016–2019)
One of the common pitfalls of ghost-hunting shows is when the investigators pack up and end their searches for the night, leaving viewers wondering why they hadn’t continued until morning. This is precisely why Paranormal Lockdown earns itself a spot as one of the best paranormal reality shows. The series remedies the time issue by going all-out, and spending 72 hours straight in each location being investigated. This leads to the inescapable terror of its cast. Left with nowhere else to run, the ghost hunters can fully process the energy that's all around them. They give the speculative spirits a chance to become more comfortable with the crew’s presence.
The Dead Files (2011–present)
Out of every ghost-hunting show, The Dead Files has the most unusual approach to uncovering and applying the potential paranormal aspects of crime, and applying it to episodes. This is done through the solid and cooperative skills of a retired detective and a psychic medium. After each investigation, the two compare notes, which almost always correlate, and seem to prove that the hauntings are genuine. The show thrives by keeping its viewers intrigued, thanks to highly accurate sketches of those who are said to haunt the locations. The crime-focused storylines also supply some bone-chilling thrills. The Dead Files season 15 will premiere in June 2023.
Kindred Spirits (2016–present)
Kindred Spirits is about making contact with spirits, and unveiling their motives for haunting the area. Cast members attempt to assist them in passing over or leaving the place. This is incredibly unique, given similar series' aggravation tactics. The investigators are less frightened and dramatic than other paranormal television hosts. However, they're rewarded with more valid data to put towards solving the hauntings themselves. On top of this, the show often includes interviews, even from the people being haunted during the investigations.
Ghost Adventures (2008–present)
This is quite possibly the most popular ghost-hunting show of all time, due to the aggressive nature of investigator Zak. Ghost Adventures brings increasingly eerie, often historical locations across the world right to viewers' television screens. It shows no mercy, as ghouls are harassed. However, those spirits torment the living.
The dramatic reactions of Zak and his personable crew egg on the audience, as they experience activity that makes their blood run cold. Sometimes, the hauntings injure them, or make them physically ill. That adds considerable tension to its most significant episodes. To inflate the show's wild energy, the cast uses an array of gadgets, such as motion detectors, electronic voice phenomenon recorders, and infrared cameras. These authenticate their pseudoscientific research.
Ghost Hunters (2004–20)
The one that started it all is the best paranormal show of all time - Ghost Hunters . It follows the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) investigative team as they scour the world for unarguable proof of real hauntings. The crew goes the extra mile by doing everything possible to debunk unauthentic evidence. They don't want to jump the gun when it comes to sharing that spirits are present. Ghost Hunters continue to up the ante with spin-offs like Ghost Nation , innovating and refining their craft using scientific equipment, such as electromagnetic field meters.

‘Ghosts’ Season 3: Premiere Date, New Ghosts and Everything to Know
Posted: January 4, 2024 | Last updated: January 4, 2024
Before 'Ghosts' returns, here's what you need to know
TV's friendliest haunting will continue when CBS's Ghosts comes back for Season 3. After a long wait due to the writers' and actors' strikes, a return date has finally been set. Here's everything you need to about Ghosts Season 3.
Ghosts Season 3 release date
TLDR: Ghosts will return on Thursday, Feb. 15.
THE DETAILS: The dual strikes pushed the Ghosts Season 3 premiere date back from the fall. On Nov. 13, a few days after the end of the actors' strike, CBS announced the return dates for its strike-delayed shows . Ghosts will premiere Thursday, Feb. 15 at 8:30/7:30c on CBS, following the Young Sheldon Season 7 premiere.
Ghosts Season 3 cast
TLDR: We expect the entire main cast to return for Season 3 — except, perhaps, for one ghost whose identity will be revealed next season.
THE DETAILS: In the Season 2 finale, Jay and Sam witnessed the heavens open and one of the ghosts ascend to the next plane of existence, which means their haunted house could be missing a spirit next season. Showrunners Joe Port and Joe Wiseman aren't revealing who got "sucked off," even to the cast. Although someone's fate is still up in the air, we expect to see most of the souls who have been wandering the halls of Woodstone to return.
Main cast list
- Rose McIver as Samantha, a freelance writer who suddenly inherited a house from a distant cousin. She died very briefly in the pilot, and is now able to see and speak to ghosts.
- Utkarsh Ambudkar as Jay, Sam's husband, a chef who cannot see or speak to ghosts. He and Sam turned the mansion into a bed-and-breakfast.
- Brandon Scott Jones as Isaac, a captain from the Revolutionary War who died of dysentery and was then forgotten. He's now dating the ghost of Nigel, a man he accidentally killed, and when people walk through him, they smell something horrible.
- Danielle Pinnock as Alberta, a lounge singer from the Prohibition era who was murdered. Her murder was solved in Season 2. Her humming is so powerful it can be heard by living people.
- Richie Moriarty as Pete, a travel agent from the 1980s who died when he got hit with an arrow while leading a group of Pinecone Troopers on the Woodstone estate.
- Asher Grodman as Trevor, a stockbroker bro who died in 2000 while wearing no pants. He can interact with physical objects sometimes.
- Sheila Carrasco as Flower, a hippie who died in the woods when she tried to hug a bear. If anyone walks through her, she makes them temporarily high.
- Rebecca Wisocky as Hetty Woodstone, the original lady of Woodstone Mansion, and a distant relative to Sam. She's uptight but slowly learning to let go, and her death remains a mystery.
- Devan Chandler Long as Thorfinn, the oldest of all the ghosts. Thorfinn is a viking who can affect electricity.
- Roman Zarazoga as Sasappis. Sass is a Lenape Native American who died on the land before the mansion was built, and loves the smell of pizza. He briefly fell in love with a visiting car ghost.
Ghosts Season 3 plot
TLDR: Ghosts Season 3 will pick up after the Season 2 cliffhanger ending and will grapple with the consequences after one of the ghosts ascended to the next plane, or in the show's lingo, got "sucked off" to the afterlife .
THE DETAILS: Executive producers Joe Port and Joe Wiseman told The Messenger that the loss of one of the ghosts will "be significant, and it's gonna have wide-ranging ramifications." That means it's not a pigeon, as one of the actors hoped, and it's probably not just some random ghost we've never seen before. Port said that Season 3 will involve an "exploration of grief" as the ghosts confront the reality that they could get sucked off at any time.
There are many other ghost-related questions to potentially answer in Season 3, as Port and Wiseman reminded us. We haven't learned how Hetty or Sasappis died, and we also don't know what their ghostly powers are. Port told The Messenger that as Jay works on opening a restaurant at the bed-and-breakfast, there will be construction done on the barn, revealing new barn-dwelling ghosts.
And speaking of Jay, he remains the sole main character who can't interact with the ghosts… for now. Ambudkar has been pitching ways for Jay to talk to the ghosts, and Port and Wiseman have some ideas in their heads.
"I don't want to get into exactly how we would do that, but anything's possible," Wiseman told The Messenger. "Something like that would be, like, series-changing dynamics. We would be cautious with something like that, but we've thought of ways to temporarily get by that."
Ghosts Season 2 recap
THE DETAILS: As Sam and Jay got their bed-and-breakfast up and running, the ghosts got used to sharing their home with guests. Sam also worked to fulfill some of the promises she made to them and started a podcast about solving Alberta's murder, which has now been solved thanks to Hetty admitting she knew who did it all along. Thorfinn discovered that he had a son who was haunting the neighbors, and Isaac and Nigel took their relationship to the next level, eventually getting engaged. Hetty and Trevor also began hooking up, while Pete got to secretly walk his daughter down the aisle at her wedding.
After a brief scare in which a woman claimed to be the true heir to Woodstone, Sam and Jay realized how important the house and its ghosts are to them… just in time for the pair to watch one of them get "sucked off."
Ghosts Season 3 trailer
THE DETAILS: There's no trailer yet, but we'll share it here as soon as it's ready.
Ghosts Season 3 episodes
TLDR: Season 3 will be a shortened season due to the strikes.
THE DETAILS: Ghosts Season 1 had 18 episodes, and Season 2 had 22 episodes. Season 3 could have around 13, depending on when production is able to start.
Shows like Ghosts
THE DETAILS: The Messenger has compiled a list of six comforting and/or spooky comedies and light dramas to watch while you wait for Ghosts to return, including What We Do in the Shadows , iZombie and, of course, Ghosts UK .
Where to watch Ghosts
THE DETAILS: Ghosts Season 3 will air Tuesdays at 8:30/7:30c on CBS and stream the day after on Paramount+. Previous seasons of Ghosts are available to stream on Paramount+ .
