‘Ghost Hunters’ New Season Details and Episode Descriptions
The TAPS team is reuniting for a reboot of Ghost Hunters premiering on discovery+ on New Year’s Day. The new season stars paranormal investigators Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango, as well as Shari DeBenedetti and the Destination Fear team.
The upcoming season will consist of 12 new one-hour episodes.
“It’s such a great feeling doing what we love together as a team and under the show name that created a genre,” said Hawes. “ Ghost Hunters is back with the names and faces you recognize, investigating some incredible locations with new equipment and in our style.”
“This whole new season of Ghost Hunters has some of the creepiest locations, best evidence, and familiar faces that the viewers will be excited to see,” stated Tango. “I’m excited for everyone to get that classic Ghost Hunters nostalgia they’ve been missing, but in a whole, fresh new way.”
discovery+ provided the following synopsis and new season episode descriptions:
“The reboot of Ghost Hunters follows the team as they crisscross the country searching for answers in the nation’s most haunted locations including: the Old Joliet Prison in Joliet, Illinois; a haunted hotel with a dark past in Nebraska; a brewery in Pittsburgh; and a Virginia castle that might have visitors from outer space. Joining the core team are a host of experts from different paranormal backgrounds that add their own points-of-view and prowess to each unique case. Even the rock legend Meat Loaf joins the TAPS team on an investigation of an old haunting that is still scaring the local community.”

Terror Town Part 1
Since its founding in 1873, the remote mining town of Clifton, AZ has been trapped in a devastating cycle of violence, mayhem, and natural disaster. But despite its many struggles, Clifton remains home to a small population. Along with its brutal past comes a long history of dark paranormal experiences in the town, which has many residents convinced that Clifton may be cursed. Isolated and concerned the town may no longer be safe for their families, the townspeople have turned to the Ghost Hunters to investigate the continuous paranormal activity and the connection, if any, to Clifton’s history of death and misery.
Terror Town Part 2
On their second night of investigation in the remote mining town of Clifton, Arizona the team revisits several hubs of paranormal activity as they try to get to the bottom of the aggressive phenomena. Grant, Brandon and Brian have a breakthrough in the Boarding House, where they establish direct communication with a troubled soul. Meanwhile, the rest of the team expands the search perimeter.
Proof of Afterlife
Isolated deep in the wilderness of Southern New Mexico, Fort Stanton was originally established in the 19th century as a military post, then later it was converted to a tuberculosis hospital to help combat the epidemic that swept the country at the turn of the century. Thousands are believed to have died and been buried on site. Though no longer in use, it has been preserved as a cherished historical landmark. Disturbing reports of paranormal activity date back to the 1940s, but a recent uptick in claims has the Deputy Director of New Mexico historic sites worried about the safety of the two lone staff members that live on site. He has reached out to the Ghost Hunters for help.
The Perry-Mansfield Performing Arts Camp, deep in Northern Colorado forestland, has long been plagued by reports of unsettling paranormal encounters. Today, campers and faculty there still experience paranormal activity. In the first professional investigation of the site, Grant sends the team ahead to begin without him. Later, when Grant joins the team, he proposes a creative tactic that triggers some unexpected results.
Alone in Alaska
Between 1896 and 1899, countless fortune seekers set out on a voyage to the Klondike region of North America in search of gold. Many had to pass through the small and secluded town of Haines, Alaska. For some, however, Haines was the end of the journey as many lost their lives due to extreme weather conditions, starvation, or bloody conflicts. Due to the violence and disorder, the government established a military outpost to keep the peace. Today, the outpost remains and has since been converted, in part, into a hotel called Hotel Halsingland, where concerning paranormal activity is now being reported. After being contacted by Skylar, a current employee at the hotel, the team agree to trek to Haines where no paranormal investigator has ever investigated.
The last mission.
The Wendover Airfield, a onetime Army Air Force Base in the salt flats of the Utah desert, played a crucial role in WWII. During training, dozens of pilots died on the base. Now, recent reports of paranormal activity there have stirred speculation; and the reported hauntings cause the staff to fear for their safety, and for that of the ordinary citizens who travel in and out of the base. Desperate for answers, they’ve called upon the team for help.
The Glenn Family Curse
More than a century ago, when the Glenn House was built in the small town of Cape Girardeau, Missouri, it housed the family of David Glenn, a successful local businessman – until they tragically lost three of their infant children and later went bankrupt. Today, generations later, the historic residence still stands. A rise in disturbing paranormal activity, however, has prompted the local historical association’s president to reach out to Grant for help.
Ghost Hunters Return to Waverly Hills
Dubbed one of the “most haunted places on earth,” Waverly Hills Sanatorium has long been hailed as a “mecca” for paranormal investigators from all around the globe. It is also the site of some of the most striking paranormal encounters from the original “Ghost Hunters.” Now, the new owners have been receiving reports of unsettling new paranormal claims from visitors, which include blood-curdling screams and unexplained sounds. Seeing this as the perfect opportunity to take his new team to one of his favorite haunts, Grant eagerly answers the call for help.

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 .

Here's Why Grant Has Been Absent on 'Ghost Hunters'
Season 2 of the 'Ghost Hunters' reboot brings with it a new cast and the return of Grant Wilson. But why isn't Grant investigating on Season 2?
May 13 2020, Updated 6:06 p.m. ET
The reboot of Ghost Hunters has entered its second season, and Grant Wilson's new team of paranormal investigators is bringing you new and exciting locations to explore. But as Season 2 progresses, fans of the original show are noticing the group's ring leader is suspiciously absent from most of the episodes.
Why isn't Grant investigating on Season 2 of Ghost Hunters?
Fans have made it clear they miss their lead investigator.
A lot of the show's current fanbase remembers the original series, which aired from 2004 until 2016. Grant was one of the show's leading investigators, alongside Jason Hawes ( who now leads the show Ghost Nation with OG cast members Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango).
This simply isn’t #GhostHunters with Grant phoning it in every week. — Felicity (@Felicit64067382) May 7, 2020
Not ok with grant not being on this season #GhostHunters — Melanie⚓ (@Mel72609) May 7, 2020
When Ghost Hunters was rebooted for a new season, fans were excited to see the paranormal expert back in action on their TV screens. Grant was extremely active in the reboot's first season, going on every investigation with his team and offering his insight on the evidence found.
But in this new season, Grant is most often only seen over FaceTime — and fans have taken notice.
So is grant just not going to be on #GhostHunters anymore? I feel like he was just there to introduce a new group or something. What’s with him not being at the instigations? Not liking that. — nerd zombie goddess (@nerdzombiegod) May 6, 2020
another episode of Ghost Hunters without Grant ghost hunting 😪 I can’t stand some of the investigators and the only reason I was watching was because of Grant and so far he hasn’t been on an episode #GhostHunters #GrantWilson — 🌺Maira🌺 (@Maira03) May 7, 2020
Why isn't Grant investigating?
Grant's absence has made some fans wonder if the ghost hunter is sick, or if he's making a slow departure from the show. Luckily, none of these worries are true — the investigator is actually trying to give his new team time to work together without him.
"Hey guys! All is well. I’m letting the team do a few cases in their own but I’ll be back on the cases with them next week," Grant tweeted in response to fans' comments. "Thank you all for the love, support, and concern."
Fellow cast members Richel Stratton and Brandon Alvis also spoke with PopCulture.com about Grant's absence — noting that he was only trying to give the team an opportunity to connect better.
"Grant is still our team leader," Richel told the outlet. "He's still very much a part of Ghost Hunters , he's a team member. You will occasionally see us without him. That doesn't mean he's going anywhere. He's letting us develop as a team. The previous Ghost Hunters knew each other and had that relationship and he's allowing us to have that as well."
She clarified that their frequent on-camera FaceTimes with him are how they keep him involved when he's away, so he's still very much a part of the team.
"The majority of the time, he'll come in on the second night of investigation, we'll tell him what we've done, what we're thinking and it's right along the lines of what he would have done or what he's thinking," Brandon said.
"He's letting us go out there and be ourselves and he guided us through the first season," he continued. "He was there, he put this team together, he hand-picked us and now he's letting us go out there, form our own opinions and allowing us to evolve in the way that you're seeing in Season 2, which is extremely exciting."
Watch Ghost Hunters on A&E Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET.

Hunters season 2 new cast & returning character guide.
Here's a guide to the new and returning actors and characters featured in Hunters season 2, including Logan Lerman as Jonah and Al Pacino as Meyer.
WARNING! This article contains minor SPOILERS for Hunters season 2! Hunters season 2 brings back the title group of Nazi-hunting characters with an even bigger star-studded cast as they chase their most daring real-life target. Set in 1979, Hunters season 2 picks up two years after Jonah discovered that Al Pacino’s character Meyer Offerman was actually Wilhelm Zuchs, A.K.A. The Wolf, the Nazi doctor who tormented the real Meyer and Ruth in concentration camps. After disbanding due to a hunt-gone-wrong two years prior, Jonah and FBI agent Millie Morris gather the hunters in Argentina for one final mission as they track the most notorious Nazi in history: Adolf Hitler.
Hunters season 2, which is the Amazon Prime Video show’s last season, primarily follows the returning group of Nazi hunters led by Logan Lerman’s Jonah Heidelbaum, with Adolf Hitler also becoming a prominent character after he was revealed to be alive in Hunters season 1’s finale. The series also surprisingly brings back a few characters from Hunters season 1 who died, which is accomplished using extensive flashbacks from 1975 to 1977 in the storyline of Pacino’s Meyer Offerman.
