More than 10 million passionate fans watched “Ghost Adventures” on Travel Channel during its last season and, among Men 25-54, it was cable’s #1 non-sports/news program in its time slot.
‘Ghost Adventures is one of the many successful franchises in the Warner Bros. Discovery portfolio and we can continue to help it grow by sharing it with a much larger audience on Discovery,” said Kathleen Finch, Chairman and Chief Content Officer, US Networks Group, Warner Bros. Discovery. “One of the benefits of having an incredible network ecosystem is that we can find new ways to amplify great content, super serve passionate fans of each genre and introduce new audiences to additional content that will appeal to them.”
Each episode of ‘Ghost Adventures’ features the investigative team as they travel to haunted locations in search of evidence of the afterlife and meet with locals, eyewitnesses, and experts to piece together the haunted history of each site. Their comprehensive investigations use the latest scientific gadgets and technology to capture physical evidence of the paranormal and gain a better understanding of each supernatural mystery.
“Fans can expect insane investigations and mountains of paranormal evidence this season. I can’t wait to share our findings with longtime fans and capture the attention of new viewers. I’m grateful to be able to expand the reach of what Ghost Adventures has always set out to do – build a better understanding of the afterlife,” said Bagans.
During the supersized premiere, “Ghost Adventures: Lake of Death”, along the sprawling shores of Lake Mead, an attack by an anxiety-inducing spirit brings Bagans to his knees and fearing for his life. Other stories this season include the team’s investigations of paranormal evidence at locations such as Los Angeles’ Barclay Hotel, whose grisly history rivals that of the infamous Hotel Cecil; California’s first oil boomtown, Mentryville, which is teeming with paranormal chaos; The Commercial Casino and Hotel in Elko, Nevada with a lawless history that now fuels a malevolent energy; and Los Angeles’ peculiar Longfellow-Hastings Octagon House that’s brimming with poltergeist activity.
