Plot Synopsis

HAUNTED TOWNS is a one-hour reality series that follows the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC), a team of paranormal Investigators and researchers, as they investigate America's most haunted towns. From infamous hotbeds like Gettysburg and Salem to small towns with turbulent pasts that fueled generations of ghost stories, HAUNTED TOWNS explores places that played key roles in the darker chapters of American history, where battle, disaster, and injustice have condemned unsettled spirits to every street corner. In this series, TWC -- consisting of Chris, Doogie, Porter, and Brannon -- as they interview witnesses, investigate hotspots using the latest ghost-hunting technology, and follow new leads until they can pinpoint who is haunting the town and why. But the team isn't just about collecting evidence. Their M.O. is to find truth -- if any -- in the legends that have shaped each town's paranormal notoriety. In the series opener, TWC heads to Gettysburg, Pa., where more than 51,000 soldiers lost their lives during the Civil War's most epic battle. The town is a hot spot for paranormal activity and the perfect testing ground for an experiment using trigger objects that may have had personal meaning to the spirits and could activate paranormal activity. While attempting to contact ghosts from both sides of the Civil War conflict, the boys investigate a militaria shop filled with war memorabilia as well as a local farm that served as a temporary field hospital for wounded Confederate soldiers. During their attempt to connect with the restless souls of dead soldiers, TWC encounters evidence that something darker may be lurking in the legendary haunted town. In subsequent episodes, the TWC crew investigate: Salem, MA, one of the most legendary haunted towns in America; Savannah, GA, where hauntings plague the businesses surrounding the former site of the city's gallows; Vicksburg, MS, the site of major civil unrest during Reconstruction; Bisbee, AZ, the old mining town plagued by union strife; Fall River, MA, home of Lizzie Borden; McDonough, GA, where the Camp Creek train crash of 1900 left dozens of passengers dead; and Cape May, NJ, the epicenter of the Victorian Era's Spiritualism movement.

Season 2 of HAUNTED TOWNS premiered on Friday, June 21, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT on Travel Channel. In the season opener, "Voodoo on the Bayou," the Tennessee Wraith Chasers head down to Louisiana's paranormally charged Manchac Swamp. They're the first team ever to investigate the site of America's largest slave revolt, and they want to find out what's stirring up spirits over 200 years later.
Travel Channel premiered the Season 2 finale of HAUNTED TOWNS on Friday, August 9, 2019 at 10pm ET/PT. In the season ender, "Wrath of the Fire Goddess," the Tennessee Wraith Chasers experience unimaginable terror as they investigate the town of Hilo, Hawaii. Voices in underground lava tubes warn of impending danger on the Big Island, giving the team a new respect for the vengeful fire goddess Pele.
