Travel Channel has picked up a second season of its new series Ghost Nation, starring the “OG” gang of paranormal investigators: Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango. Concluding a successful debut season, which launched out of Travel Channel’s annual “Ghostober” event on Friday, October 11, the series has pulled in over 5 million viewers to date.
