Just because Grant Wilson is gone from the show, the TAPS team isn’t done. The ghastly gang is still seeking spirits as a new 14-episode season of Ghost Hunters premieres Wednesday, September 5 at 9 p.m. on SyFy. Under the leadership of Jason Hawes, the usual TAPS members are back on the spooky hunt in a variety of creepy locations. Where are they going? We’ve got the dastardly details!
Here’s where they will be hunting for ghosts in the first few episodes.
“A Serial Killer’s Revenge” on September 5: Charleston, South Carolina has the distinct honor of winning 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.
“Camp Fear” on September 12: 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” on September 19: 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” on September 26: 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.
Grant left the show for personal reasons at the conclusion of the season finale earlier this year in May. His departure, although never fully explained, stirred up a storm of speculation with some fans thinking his marriage was in jeopardy. That rumor was never confirmed. Some even believed Grant left because he wasn’t getting along with Jason.
