Plot Synopsis

The reboot of GHOST HUNTERS follows the team as they crisscross the country searching for answers in the nation's most haunted locations including: the Old Joliet Prison in Joliet, Illinois; a haunted hotel with a dark past in Nebraska; a brewery in Pittsburgh; and a Virginia castle that might have visitors from outer space. Original members Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango, along with Shari DeBenedetti, reunite in this series. Joining the core team are a host of experts from different paranormal backgrounds that add their own points-of-view and prowess to each unique case. Even the rock legend Meat Loaf joins the TAPS team on an investigation of an old haunting that is still scaring the local community. GHOST HUNTERS premieres Saturday, January 1, 2022 on discovery+, with 12 all new one-hour episodes dropping weekly.

"It's such a great feeling doing what we love together as a team and under the show name that created a genre," said Hawes. "GHOST HUNTERS is back with the names and faces you recognize, investigating some incredible locations with new equipment and in our style."

"This whole new season of GHOST HUNTERS has some of the creepiest locations, best evidence and familiar faces that the viewers will be excited to see," said Tango. "I'm excited for everyone to get that classic GHOST HUNTERS nostalgia they've been missing, but in a whole, fresh new way."

"We found ourselves in some truly frightening situations this season that helped us capture some of our best evidence to date," added Gonsalves.

This series made its linear television debut on Saturday, May 7, 2022 at 9pm ET/PT on Travel Channel, which aired the series with the title GHOST HUNTERS: TAPS RETURNS.

Armed with state-of-the-art technology, their proven methodology and a few special guest investigators, TAPS tackle disturbing paranormal activity head-on, leaving no stone unturned to reach the dead among the living. In the season opener, "Keeper of the Light," TAPS reunites with Amy Bruni, Adam Berry and Kris Williams in the Florida panhandle, where a new exhibition is stirring up paranormal activity at the Pensacola Lighthouse.
