"Ghost Hunters" returns to the Syfy Channel this fall celebrating its tenth season on the network. Former cast member Grant Wilson returns as a special guest on the series' 200th episode, the Providence Journal reported today.
"Ghost Hunters" returns this fall to conclude the ninth season with new one-hour episodes. The series will remain in its Wednesday night time-slot. Syfy announced this summer that Grant Wilson will be appearing on the 200th episode which airs on October 22. The mid-season premiere kicks-off on October 8.
The hit series first premiered on the Syfy Channel on October 6, 2004. The show 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 season nine, the cast includes 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 back half of season nine kicks off on the week of the tenth anniversary of the series. The second episode of the season will be the 200th episode. A few special guest investigators were invited for the feat. Wilson announced this month on his Facebook page that he will be making a special guest appearance this season. Bruni and Berry will also appear on the remaining season nine episodes including 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.
