SYFY’S HIT REALITY SERIES Ghost Hunters RETURNS FOR A NINTH SEASON THIS WINTER

 

16 All-New Season 9 Episodes to Debut in January 2013

 

NEW YORK – November 13, 2012 – Ghost Hunters, Syfy’s longest-running original reality series, returns for a ninth season this winter. Sixteen all-new Season 9 episodes are slated to premiere beginning January 16, 2013 at 9 PM ET/PT.

 

Ghost Hunters has proven itself to be an enormously popular paranormal series that continues to evolve successfully with each new season,” said Mark Stern, President Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. “While the Ghost Hunters mission of helping those in need remains at the heart of each investigation, we’re thrilled by the increased scope of the cases being undertaken and the series’ revitalized style and energy, all of which contribute to making Ghost Hunters an even more vibrant, visually stimulating and exciting experience going into its ninth season.”

 

In Season 9, fans can look forward to seeing the TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) team’s latest innovations in ghost hunting equipment and techniques, as they use more technology than ever before to capture evidence of paranormal activity. TAPS - led by Jason Hawes - will investigate new, high-profile locations across the country, while continuing its mission of helping families in need of assistance from the Ghost Hunters.

 

Since its Season 8 mid-season premiere on September 5, Ghost Hunters has averaged 1 million viewers in Adults 18-49, 1.3 million viewers in Adults 25-54 and 2.2 million total viewers (all data Live +7). The midseason premiere was also the paranormal series' most-watched premiere since August 2010.

 

Season 8 continues through December 5, wrapping up with a special holiday investigation at the Mark Twain House in Hartford, Connecticut.

 

Since its 2004 premiere, Ghost Hunters has spawned two spin-offs with over 200 episodes among the three series, cementing its place as the No. 1 paranormal franchise on cable. For more than eight years, Ghost Hunters has set the standard for paranormal series, offering viewers spine-tingling investigations by the TAPS team.

 

Ghost Hunters is produced for Syfy by Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Studios (Dirty Jobs, The Ultimate Fighter, Top Shot). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Mike Nichols and Alan David, serve as executive producers.

  • Myra Thompson

  • famous gary c

    Same here Myra ….lot of ways these paranormal show’s are better then what the network’s force feed us on a weekly basis with all there terrible mid-season filler and confusing back stories ….I prefer these show’s anyday !!!

  • TomDaBombb

    Dude do some research. The picture is from like season 3 and half of those cast members aren’t even on the show anymore.
    Make a damn effort!

  • famous gary c

    I wish Grant was still investigating with Jason. They made a good team. Here’s a hard question which is better Ghost Hunter’s or Ghost Adventures ?

  • wildlynncutie798

    I really like the show been watching from season 1. And really missed you all not doing a halloween show this year what happened with that

  • Lynn

    I will continue to watch this show! have had paranormal things happen to me that I cannot explain.. so I beleive!

  • mistofthemarsh

    1. Glad they will be back
    2. Lazy using an old season 1/2 cast picture instead of something current if I was Jason I would be pissed
    3. Can you please bring back Ghost Hunters International…More BARRY!
    4. We could use more than 4/5 Episodes of Destination Truth … More JOSH!

    One of the things that people fail to realize is that an investigation takes many hours and it has to be condenced down into 1/2 hour segments. I have been on a paranormal investigation and weird stuff did happen. I saw it first hand and it is not fake. Remember all this has to be rolled into a 1/2 hour, or an hour, so it seems like to much is happening, when in reality it is spread out over the entire night.

    I love Syfy’s lineup :

    I would put it against any one of the network’s lineup’s any day of the week. ABC,FOX,NBC,CBS,CW . No overblown budgets or huge ego’s ( Yea i know NBC own’s Syfy but little sister does better promoting there show’s then big brother does. Fact

  • Judy

    Glad to hear that Ghost Hunters is continuing on with the show. I will have to get cable so I can keep up with the team. Keep on trucking team.

  • Eddie

    I Love Ghost Hunters, But It’s Not As Fun And Exciting As It Was When Grant Was On There, I Wish Grant Would Come Back.

  • AppleStinx

    The producers should come to my house (northern California). We get them ghosts often, are more and more of them are whispering stuff in Spanish. I tell them to go bother people in Argentina. :twisted:

  • AppleStinx

    It’s not too bad, except when the ghosts act as if they owned the place.

  • AppleStinx

    So after the sun goes down and I’m alone in the house, sometimes I feel a presence walking behind me, like right now. Don’t get me wrong, my Spanish comprehension is almost as good as of the guy next door, but I have ask him to help me understand the whispers from the ghosts (yes, there’s more than one).

  • AppleStinx

    The guy next door will stop by in a few to listen and to write down whatever he hears. He doesn’t believe in ghosts and thinks it’s a trick done with surround sound. It doesn’t matter that I’ve shown him the stereo turned off.
