The Syfy Channel's hit series "Ghost Hunters" returns this fall. The popular paranormal program premiered in October 2004 and returns this October to conclude the ninth season with new one-hour episodes. The show will remain in its Wednesday night time-slot. Syfy also announced today that a special guest investigator will be appearing on the mid-season premiere.
"Ghost Hunters" first premiered on the Syfy Channel on October 6, 2004. The series originally featured paranormal investigators Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson and followed them as they investigated claims of paranormal activity with their paranormal research group The Atlantic Paranormal Society.
In the early seasons, Hawes and Grant worked as plumbers for Roto-Rooter as their day job while exploring the unknown at night. When the series became popular, Hawes and Grant quit working for the company full time to focus more time for the show. Presently they're considered honorary employees. Wilson left the series in February 2012 for personal reasons.
In the first half of season nine, the cast included Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, Amy Bruni, Adam Berry, Britt Giffith, Samantha Hawes, and Maddie the dog. Bruni and Berry announced in May that they won't be returning for the tenth season.
The mid-season nine premiere is also the series' 200th episode. The conclusion of the season kicks off on the week of the tenth anniversary of the series. A few special guest investigators were invited for the feat. Wilson announced last week on his Facebook page that he will be making a special guest appearance. Bruni and Berry will also appear on the anniversary episode.
Earlier this month, "Ghost Hunters" season nine, part one was released. The price for the 4-disc set is available on sale on Amazon for $14.96.
"Ghost Hunters" is the longest running series on the Syfy Channel. The Syfy Channel's "Ghost Hunters" mid-season premiere airs on Wednesday, October 8, at 9 pm.
