The folks at Animal Planet know very well that fans of their weekly series, THE HAUNTED, have been waiting patiently for the new season to begin.
In a grand gesture to fans by the network, all-new episodes will air starting at 10:00 pm ET on Sunday, October 3rd. If you are new to the show, the new season episodes will be preceded by past season episodes, starting at 3:00 pm ET tomorrow.
The Haunted on Animal Planet
Each episode of THE HAUNTED presents a claim of paranormal activity to viewers through the re-creation of events, which is interlaced with testimonies of the people involved. The involvement of local paranormal investigators is also highlighted in each featured case.
As the pets involved cannot speak for themselves, the people, the investigators, and the filming crew behind the show give them a voice. This is a show that does not try to prove anything. It is up to the viewers to weigh the testimony given in each episode and form their own conclusions. The weekly series is produced for Animal Planet by Picture Shack Entertainment.
“THE HAUNTED catches us off-guard, finding us most vulnerable in the places we should be safest – our own homes and workplaces,” notes Marjorie Kaplan, president and general manager of Animal Planet Media. “The lines between fact and figment of imagination, truth, lore and evidence blur as true believers share their most terrifying stories in an hour-long white- knuckled thrill ride.”
As a reminder, THE HAUNTED crew really wants to visit Arizona to film some episodes. If you have experienced paranormal activity in Arizona, and your pet was involved somehow, contact the show.
Until then, the crew has apparently filmed the new episodes in Massachusetts. The ghostly tales include:
Demonic Seduction - Taunton, MA – After returning home from a violent and unsettling investigation with his startup paranormal group, Robert “Jake” Jacobs and his family start hearing disembodied voices, witness shadow figures and notice a change in their pet Pomeranian, that develops an uncharacteristic hatred of Robert. After a series of strange, sensual and painful dreams involving a mysterious beautiful woman, Robert enlists the help of Father Bob Bailey and his team to perform an emergency exorcism.
Demon Attack - Orange, MA – Soon after settling into their new home, Herve and Michelle see their two-year-old daughter begin to play with an imaginary friend named Maggie, a little girl with “boo boos and blood” all over her face. Concerned for the safety of their family, Herve and Michelle contact a demonologist and a psychic to banish the demons and release the spirits occupying their home.
If tomorrow’s marathon doesn’t work for your schedule, check the show’s website under “TV Schedules” for re-airings on Friday and Saturday of next week. As always, check local listings for the starting time of the show in your area with your cable or satellite television provider.
