The eighth season of Ghost Hunters – and the first without investigator Grant Wilson – kicks off on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 9pm. Wilson left the Ghost Hunters team in May 2012 after seven seasons as one of the lead investigators for The Atlantic Paranormal Society (TAPS), but the remainder of the team will be carrying on without him.
Season 8 consists of 14 new episodes, kicking off with a series of ‘Southern-Spirits’ themed shows. The first stop is in Charleston, South Carolina (Charleston won the America’s Hometown Ghost Hunt contest).
Ghost Hunters Season 8 September Episodes
“A SERIAL KILLER’S REVENGE”
Wednesday, September 5 at 9 PM ET/PT
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.
Wednesday, September 12 at 9 PM ET/PT
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”
Wednesday, September 19 at 9 PM ET/PT
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”
Wednesday, September 26 at 9 PM ET/PT
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.
