The Travel Channel announced earlier this month that Ghost Nation would be premiering its new season in October, with today bringing the exciting news that the ghost-hunting series will be delivering audiences a two-hour investigation in honor of Halloween. More than just being an extended investigation, the event is billed as the "Reunion in Hell," as it will see stars Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango reunite with some of their former Ghost Hunters stars Amy Bruni and Adam Berry, who can currently be seen in their own series Kindred Spirits. Tune in to the special event on Saturday, October 31st at 8 p.m. ET on the Travel Channel.
Per press release, "Revelers can celebrate Halloween night with the ultimate series crossover, joining forces with old friends Amy Bruni and Adam Berry from Kindred Spirits. The ghost hunting teams reunite for the first time in nearly a decade (they starred together on SYFY's Ghost Hunters) to explore frightening activity inside an illustrious Newport, Rhode Island, mansion in Ghost Nation: Reunion in Hell, a special two-hour episode premiering Saturday, October 31st at 8 p.m. ET."
"We are ecstatic to get back to doing what we love, and we have some incredible cases to share," Hawes shared in a statement. "We were able to reconnect with our longtime friends Amy Bruni and Adam Berry. It seemed like time had stood still over the last 10 years as we rolled right into investigating and gathering some mind-blowing evidence and experiences."
"Working with Amy and Adam was an absolute blast and the investigation was phenomenal. It was really interesting meshing our techniques together and it yielded some amazing results," said Gonsalves.
"You'll also be seeing some other familiar faces this season as well," adds Tango. "I'm hoping the more people tune into Ghost Nation, the more they will see how accessible we are. We're here to help everyone, and thankfully, having so many investigators in our network makes it possible for us to do that."
On all investigations, collecting evidence is just the beginning. With the help of their local contacts, the team embeds themselves in the community, conducting multi-day investigations in an effort to track down the true source of these hauntings and restore peace to the living. Under the United Paranormal Research Organization (UPRO) banner, it isn't only Hawes, Gonsalves, and Tango facing off against an unseen entity. Local paranormal groups, sometimes even the homeowners themselves, join the team as they employ new devices and techniques for confronting and questioning spirits. They'll do whatever it takes to entice the ghost into telling its story and stop at nothing to get to the bottom of the paranormal phenomena.
In the premiere episode, "Evil Ink," Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, Dave Tango, and Shari DeBenedetti investigate the paranormal events plaguing the Zone13 Tattoo and Body Piercing shop in New Jersey. They head to the town of Deptford to investigate the tattoo shop where disturbing apparitions, disembodied voices, and even physical encounters are threatening the business. After their own investigation, it seems that whatever noises the team are hearing are following them as they move. With all these strange happenings and fresh evidence, the UPRO team will determine if the shop is actually haunted by one of the property's former owners, a woman named Bertha.
