Is A&E Bringing ‘Ghost Hunters’ Back From the Dead in Some super phenomenal Big Paranormal way. Some others seem to think so. What I do not enjoy writing about, is the same network is also now pushing Psychic Kids back and one other show. How ever on August 21st Ghost Hunters does return on A&E
Grant Wilson states, he don’t chase ghosts, he chases the truth. That might be an understatement. Either way. The trailer looks pretty good.
I do not feel at any point kids should be allowed into this paranormal Realm. Anyone, who uses kids in this manner is A predator to society. Not only that, but kids are not in full know of the hidden dangers, adults place them in.
According to the Hollywood Reporter.
Things are getting spooky at A&E. One of cable’s premiere unscripted destinations is betting hard on paranormal programming, reviving the long-running Ghost Hunters and ordering four more projects in the space.
“Paranormal worked really well for us in the past,” A&E Network executive vp and head of programming Elaine Frontain Bryant tells The Hollywood Reporter. “It feels like it’s a time in the country where there’s a trend for people to be spiritual without being overly religious. I think paranormal programming can feed that, while being entertainment-forward.”
Ghost Hunters, one of the crown jewels at Craig Piligian’s prolific Pilgrim Media Group, produced 230 episodes for Syfy over the course of its 11-season run. As a part of the new deal, A&E will also get access to the series’ formidable library — one that averaged a robust 3 million viewers per episode during its heyday.
As for the new version, series original Grant Wilson is returning on-camera and as an executive producer with a handpicked group of professional ghost hunters to investigate supposed hauntings. By engaging forensic experts, historical records and new technology, the new Ghost Hunters team will assist everyday people struggling with unexplained events. “I don’t chase ghosts,” Wilson says in the first trailer (below). “I chase the truth.”
The new Ghost Hunters, which has received an initial order of 20 episodes, kicks off Aug. 21.
Other series include reimagined versions of previous A+E Networks properties Psychic Kids and Celebrity Ghost Stories. The former, which will air alongside the new Ghost Hunters, finds the now-grown children from the original run spending time with other youngsters who claim to have paranormal abilities. It is produced by A+E Originals.
Celebrity Ghost Stories, which is exactly what it sounds like, will join the schedule later in 2019 after a five-year break from TV — previously airing on A+E Network Biography (now FYI). The six-episode order is being produced by Jarrett Creative.
