SyFy recently announced that “Ghost Mine” will not be renewed for season 3 at this time. Although it technically has not been cancelled, it will not be included in next year’s lineup of paranormal television shows. Fans have reacted by creating a Facebook page, which has earned nearly 2000 likes as of December 23, with the hopes of encouraging SyFy to reconsider its decision.
The Renew Ghost Mine for a Season 3 Facebook page provides contact information for fans to express their desires to SyFy and provides exclusive videos featuring the cast and crew of Ghost Mine.
A new video, posted on December 22, entitled “A Message from Jay Verburg and Kristen Luman of Ghost Mine” features Jay and Kristen expressing their gratitude to fans and thanking them for their continued support.
Some fans wonder whether the creation of this new Facebook page and push to encourage fans to contact SyFy is simply a publicity stunt to draw attention to the show.
Prior to “Ghost Mine”, paranormal investigator Patrick Doyle spent his time debunking other paranormal investigators. He produced and published multiple videos on his site Haunted Hoax, demonstrating the techniques used by unscrupulous investigators to fool the public. The site and all Haunted Hoax videos mysteriously disappeared when Patrick Doyle accepted the role of paranormal investigator on “Ghost Mine”.
Before his role as a paranormal investigator on “Ghost Mine”, Doyle shared his views about paranormal reality shows in an interview on PSI-Fi radio. Patrick claimed that paranormal TV shows were 100 percent fake and created to earn money from advertisers.
He further stated,
"[I know Paranormal reality] TV shows are staged because they are getting something every episode. It just doesn't work that way. You gotta [sic] remember they are on a network called SyFy, Science fiction. It's not true."
According to Patrick’s own logic used to assess the legitimacy of other paranormal TV shows, the fact that he and paranormal investigator Kristen Luman captured evidence of the paranormal in every episode of “Ghost Mine” supports that the show was staged and the events were not true.
Patrick has expressed that he was naïve at the time of the interview and has changed his thinking about the existence of the paranormal.
Fans are left to decide for themselves whether “Ghost Mine” is a scripted series designed to earn money from advertisers, or if Patrick Doyle and Kristen Luman and the “Ghost Mine” crew really did encounter paranormal entities in the old Crescent Mine.
