I have to admit, I’m addicted to GHOST ADVENTURES, have been for a while now. I actually watch the repeats – which is pretty much all The Travel Channel has shown in recent months – religiously every Friday and Saturday night and damn it, I’m ready for some new shows!
Thankfully that is exactly what is heading our way. The Travel Channel revealed via press release that March 9th will bring the debut of Season Six of the popular franchise that features Zak, Aaron and Nick stumbling around in the dark will debut, well here, read the press release:
Travel Channel returns with Season Six of the popular paranormal travel series Ghost Adventures on Friday, March 9th at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT. Investigative duo Zak Bagans and Nick Groff, along with equipment technician Aaron Goodwin, explore some of the most haunted locations in America to unearth the trapped souls and dark energy within. This season the team visits spots that have never been explored by the Ghost Adventures team, including the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in Denver, Colorado; the Shanghai Tunnels in Portland, Oregon; as well as the family home of paranormal equipment inventor Gary Galka in East Granby, Connecticut, where business gets personal as they help one family make contact with their dead daughter in a deeply personal story of love, loss, and a haunted house.
Each of the nine half-hour episodes starts with an in-depth profile of a location’s haunted past. Once the story is told, viewers follow the investigative team as they survey every nook and cranny while conducting scientific experiments after being locked down overnight.
Ghost Adventures continues to attract huge audiences for the network and has a growing appeal to travelers who seek a different type of thrill and adventure, said Andy Singer, SVP, Programming and Production, Travel Channel. Zak, Nick, and Aaron have built a dedicated fan base that seem to follow their every visit and tweet and are inspired to visit many of the destinations featured in their show.
The new season kicks off with the trio as they head to Denver, Colorado, to explore the historically haunted Peabody-Whitehead Mansion. Built in 1889, its first owner, Dr. William R. Whitehead, was convinced the building was plagued by the spirits of hundreds of soldiers he tried to save from his days as a surgeon for the Confederate Army during the United States Civil War. After his death, when controversial Colorado Governor James Peabody moved in to the mansion, things only worsened. The governor was viewed by many as the enemy of the working man, and in 1904 he ordered state militia to break union strikes by the regions gold miners by brute force. Hundreds were injured in the violence, and dozens were killed as their bloodshed was on the governors hands. All the years of torment are now trapped inside this now empty Grant Street mansion. In addition to being the site of a suicide, there have been over 120 years of ghostly activity in the building, including reports of visitors being pushed up against the wall by unseen forces!
UFC Fighter Brendon Schwab joins the trio at the Peabody-Whitehead Mansion in hopes of shedding some light on the evil entities in order to learn more about the darkness that lies within the walls of this historic location. During the investigation in the basement, it gets personal when a spirit calls out Brendan by name and then reveals new evidence about an unsolved crime. This turn of events triggers the involvement of the Denver Police Department – currently reviewing the Ghost Adventures team’s evidence.
Only a few more week of reruns folks. Get ready for some ghost hunting, butt kicking fun.
