The original paranormal investigative series, Ghost Hunters, makes its Discovery+ debut this January, and the team are bringing a ton of friends with them!
Original members Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango (and the long-tenured Shari DeBenedetti) return to revisit some of the most hair-raising haunted locations from their past over the course of twelve all new one-hour episodes.
And in addition to Jason, Steve, Tango, and Shari, many of the episodes contain guest appearances by Ghost Hunters alumni and fellow investigative teams from other Travel Channel/Discovery+ programs such as Destination Fear and The Ghost Brothers.
Hawes calls the return of the team “…a great feeling doing what we love together as a team and under the show name that created a genre. Ghost Hunters is back with the names and faces you recognize, investigating some incredible locations with new equipment and in our style.”
