‘Ghostober IV’ Brings a Pumpkin Full of Paranormal Programming to Travel Channel and Discovery+

With 14 series and specials (equaling more than 50 hours of content across Travel Channel, Food Network, and Discovery+), you’ll be losing a lot of sleep this fall attempting to keep up with the Ghostober IV programming!

While Travel Channel has always been the home for all things that go bump in the night, this year the spirit of Halloween is extending beyond the borders of Travel Channel. Kathleen Finch, chief lifestyle brands officer, at Discovery, Inc. says that “Halloween is a big holiday for our lifestyle brands, and while in past years each brand has delivered on themed programming in its own way, this year we joined forces to build on Travel Channel’s popular Ghostober special event. We combined the ghost-themed series and specials from Food Network and HGTV with Travel Channel’s compelling content to curate an incredible season of scary, fun and bingeable shows across platforms. With stars like Anthony Anderson, Zak Bagans, Doris Bowman, Alyson Hannigan, Jack and Kelly Osbourne and director Eli Roth bringing the creative for these series and specials to life, fans of Halloween can watch scary stories and visual treats all month long.”

And while the ghosts will materialize all over the Discovery Family this year (and you can read all about the Food Network’s programming right here), the hardcore fans know that the Travel Channel celebrates the holiday year round.

Now, he’s bringing her to the queen of all haunted locations – the RMS Queen Mary. For decades, people have ventured onto the ship, docked in Long Beach, California, for a glimpse at the other side. However, since it shut down to the public in early 2020 when the Coronavirus pandemic struck, the hallowed halls of this once-elegant ocean liner have grown silent – but hardly empty. The skeleton crew of security and maintenance workers have experienced unsettlingly aggressive paranormal activity including scratches, threatening footsteps thundering down the hall and vivid apparitions. Now, Jack and Kelly will come aboard to investigate the infamous ghost ship alone. (Two-hour special)
