Cast members of the paranormal reality show "Ghost Mine" won't be returning for another season next year. Patrick Doyle and Kristen Luman announced on their Facebook pages last week that Syfy will not be renewing the show for a third season.
Not only are the cast members upset, fans of the show are deeply distraught over the news. One of the show's fans even created a Facebook page called "Renew Ghost Mine for a season 3" that already has almost 2000 likes since the announcement.
"So sad news before the holidays... we will not be renewed this season. That doesn't mean we are gone forever but it does mean we wont be heading anywhere anytime soon with SyFy. Although I am immensely disappointed for Patrick, the men, and myself it was an amazing two summers. There are not enough words of gratitude I can express to all the viewers. We had such awesome support. We wont quit our research. Patrick and I will continue our work and keep you all a part of it on the way through videos and messages. Again thanks to all that fought to keep us on and who knows what the future will bring, I am staying positive and hopeful," Luman said via her Facebook page.
Earlier this year, a fan of Luman found out that she could possibly be connected to the "Girls Gone Wild" pornography franchise. "Haunted Highway" paranormal investigator Dana Workman also has racy photos on the website. Several photos of Workman appear in the "Girls Gone Wild" blog and the brunette beauty even graced the magazine's cover in May 2009.
"A lot of celebrities have a secret porn past which they did before they were famous and do not want people to know about it. However this is often very difficult for them to cover up," a fan of Luman and Workman said.
Patrick Doyle is also under fire. According to Doyle, all of the paranormal shows on television are staged. Before "Ghost Mine," Doyle was a skeptic paranormal investigator that ran a website called hauntedhoax.net dedicated to debunking shows like the one he was on.
"These TV shows are entertainment. It's all entertainment value. It's 100% entertainment. It’s not real in the paranormal field. It's not. It's all just put out there. It's shot, it’s edited, its put together and tied with advertising to get you to watch. And then the networks make the money off the advertising dollars," Doyle said on a radio interview. "TV shows are staged because they are getting something every episode. It just doesn't work that way. You gotta remember they are on a network called SyFy, Science fiction. It's not true."
Doyle seemed upset of the news of his show. He posted "thank you" message for his fans and supporters on Facebook.
“I see the news is out that Ghost Mine will not be coming back next season. We don't know what the future holds for the crew & show, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your love & support. Your voices & messages are what kept us going for this long," Doyle said on his Facebook page.
Although it is unclear if another network will pick up the show, it does seem that "Ghost Mine" will fade away like "Ghost Hunters International" did.
