Subscribe To How The Ghost Hunters Reboot Compares To The Original, According To Grant Wilson Updates
15 years after first making its TV debut, and following a three-year hiatus, Ghost Hunters is returning to cable with a reboot that gets back to its roots. The new season brought back original cast member Grant Wilson, joined by a new team of investigators looking to strike at the the core of what Ghost Hunters set out to do long ago.
How will the new version shake things up as compared to the flagship years on Ghost Hunters? Grant Wilson recently took some time to explain how this new iteration will recapture the purpose of the original series, while also taking things a step further to bring something new to the table.
According to Grant Wilson, the goal of Ghost Hunters is to help the troubled people in each episode, as opposed to simply confirming whether supernatural spirits are around or not. The team will aim to tackle both issues by using all its tools available to determine whether or not a place is being haunted by spirits, and then if it is, they aim to the root of what the problem is.
As Wilson told Comicbook.com, a key difference in this Ghost Hunters reboot compared to past iterations of the show and spinoffs is in the details. Wilson explained that while some shows are oh so quick to whip out the fancy gear, his team will go further and evaluate things on a level audiences may not have seen before (on reality television anyway). In his words:
The aforementioned Daryl Marston and Kristen Luman will be assisting Grant Wilson in investigations on Ghost Hunters, as will Brandon Alvis, Mustafa Gatollari, Brian Murray, and Richel Stratt. Everyone in this crew is coming together to pursue cases emboldened by professional expertise, but also personal passions for the paranormal. Wilson mentioned his work in ghost hunting stemmed from his own paranormal experiences, and it was helped along through learning the stories of others as he searched for answers.
The rebooted Ghost Hunters airs on A&E on Wednesdays nights at 9:00 p.m. ET. Be sure to stick with CinemaBlend as the fall television season draws near for more updates on new television set to air over the coming weeks.
