A new season of “Ghost Adventures” – one of the most successful paranormal series on television – will get a special showcase on Discovery Channel beginning Wednesday, May 31 at 10PM ET/PT. Starring popular paranormal investigators Zak Bagans, Aaron Goodwin, Jay Wasley and Billy Tolley, a two-hour episode investigating the deadly secrets along the Hoover Dam’s Lake Mead will kick-off the newest season of the series. 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.
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.”Zak Bagans – Ghost Adventures
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.
