Syfy Renews Ghost Hunters For Season 8

If you’re a fan of watching the TAPS team poke around dark and often creepy places looking for paranormal activity, there’s good news. The Ghost Hunters aren’t going anywhere. Syfy announced today that they’re renewing the popular unscripted series Ghost Hunters for another season.

I had the opportunity to meet Jason, Grant and some of the TAPS team a few years back. As someone who’s fairly skeptical about ghosts, I was impressed by how grounded the Ghost Hunters are in the work they do. They aren't running around, blindly believing that every sound or flicker of light is a ghost. They’re curious about paranormal activity and use their resources to look for signs, sharing their adventures with us through the show. I think this approach, along with their likable nature, is a big part of why the show is such a success. You don’t need to be a full believer in order to appreciate what they do or the quality of the show.

Syfy made the official announcement today, stating that they’ve picked the series up for a 20-episode order for Season 8, which will air in 2012.

Below is what Syfy has to say about tonight’s episode and you can watch a clip from the episode here:

The next episode of Ghost Hunters airs at a special night and time: Wednesday, June 1 @ 8pm and features an hour-long case in Hawaii. Guest Josh Gates (Destination Truth) joins the team as they investigate paranormal claims at the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The museum’s original plane hangars stand as they did on the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, and still bear the bullet holes and bomb craters from the attacks that precipitated U.S. involvement in World War II. Visitors and employees alike have reported several startling experiences at the museum, suggesting that the site’s history has made it a hub for paranormal activity.
