“Ghost Hunters,” Syfy’s longest-running unscripted series, continues its eighth season with 14 new episodes beginning Wednesday, September 5th, at 9 PM ET/PT, and we have the synopses of the first four.
From the Press Release:
Having bid a fond farewell to investigator Grant Wilson in May, The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS) is officially a team in transition, which means there are plenty of surprises on the way this fall! To get back into the swing of things, Jason Hawes and the TAPS team hop in their tricked-out van and head below the Mason-Dixon line for a block of “Southern Spirits”-themed episodes.
The first stop down in Dixie is Charleston, South Carolina – the winning location of the “Ghost Hunters” America’s Hometown Ghost Hunt contest. Other famously haunted hotspots getting the thorough TAPS treatment this fall are Louisiana’s Alexandria Zoo and the French Quarter in New Orleans.
This September Ghost Hunters searches for evidence to help alleviate families’ fears and brings peace of mind to communities in:
“A SERIAL KILLER’S REVENGE”
Wednesday, September 5, at 9 PM ET/PT
Charleston, South Carolina, has the distinct honor of winning the “Ghost Hunters” America’s Hometown Ghost Hunt contest. TAPS heads straight to the historic Old City Jail, where America’s first female serial killer, Lavinia Fisher, spent her last few days alive before her execution in 1820.
Wednesday, September 12, at 9 PM ET/PT
TAPS travels to Georgia’s Camp Rutledge, the location of a “Friday the 13th” movie shoot, in search of “elemental spirits” – created by nature, not humans – and also stops in Marion, North Carolina, to help a young mom who fears a ghost might be out to hurt her daughter.
“FRENCH QUARTER MASSACRE”
Wednesday, September 19, at 9 PM ET/PT
In an effort to bring closure to families of the victims of the 1973 Jimani Lounge Massacre – where 32 men died in a horrific arson attack – TAPS fans out across New Orleans, investigating the Jimani Lounge, The Mortuary, and a cemetery in its attempt to contact the fire’s victims.
“DON’T FEED THE APPARITION”
Wednesday, September 26, at 9 PM ET/PT
TAPS doesn’t let being outdoors and surrounded by animals interfere with its investigation of the Alexandria Zoo in Alexandria, Louisiana. Zoo staffers have experienced unexplained occurrences that remind them of the pranks pulled by their dearly departed zookeeper, which leaves them wondering if their old friend is playing practical jokes on them from beyond the grave.
