Haunted Highway: Season Two for Syfy Series

Haunted Highway season twoSyfy has announced that they’ve ordered a second season of their Haunted Highway series. The new six episodes will begin airing on Wednesday, July 24th.

Here are some additional details:




NEW YORK – April 22, 2013 – Syfy has ordered a second season of its hit paranormal reality series, Haunted Highway. The new six episode season will premiere, on a new night, Wednesday, July 24 at 10PM (ET/PT). The hour-long series follows two teams, Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman, and Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble, as they conduct their own first-person investigations into some of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity in some of America’s most remote regions.

Fueled by eyewitness interviews and evidence collected with state-of-the-art equipment, the two teams will self-document their harrowing face-to-face encounters with the paranormal. The new season features examinations and investigations that will take the teams off the beaten path in places like the Arizona desert, the Sierra Nevada mountains and bayous of New Orleans as they seek werewolf-like creatures, the Black Angel of Death, the ghosts of the famous Donner party and other paranormal phenomena.

This season, in a first for the series, all four cast members will join together for a special investigation of Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. One of America’s largest and most remote coastal bases, Fort Jefferson is located in the Gulf of Mexico, 68 miles from Key West. Built in 1846 to protect one of the most strategic deep water anchorages in the United States, Fort Jefferson quickly became a horrifying prison fortress. The most famous prisoner of Fort Jefferson was Dr. Samuel Mudd, the physician who set the broken leg of John Wilkes Booth and was allegedly an accomplice in the assassination of President Lincoln. Many report that Dr. Mudd’s angry spirit has never forgiven those who wrongly imprisoned and tortured him. Though the island on which Fort Jefferson sits looks beautiful and tranquil, it is still known as “Death Island” for the number of fatalities among both soldiers and prisoners.

In its first season, Haunted Highway averaged 1.12 million total viewers, 538,000 Adults 18-49 and 618,000 Adults 25-54 – ranking #10 in Adults 25-54 during its Tuesday, 10-11PM (ET/PT) time period.

Haunted Highway is produced by BASE Productions. John Brenkus and Mickey Stern serve as executive producers.

    SyFy…I’ve totally lost all sense of faith and confidence in you!! Seriously!!
    Who is picking the nightly line-up?? The new shows that SUCK are replacing the great shows you’ve ditched. Haunted Highway, The Haunted Collector, GHI, and Ghost Mine were the some of best shows on television….Besides Ghost Hunters of course. But….that only leaves me one show to watch on SyFy. I hope your station can survive on one show keeping it alive. Because, Ghost Hunters is the ONLY one I will be watching!! I was a totally loyal viewer, whom is now a disappointed former fan. Saaaddd!!

      Leslie I too wish Haunted Highway, Haunted Collector, GHI, and Ghost Mine. I loved watching all of them. Also it’s bad enough that they cut Ghost Hunters season short last year. I would love to see all 4 of those shows back on.

    keep haunted highway on the air. and bring back some other paranormal shows like ghost mine and ghost hunters international

    This is the same thing that’s happening on some of my other favorite channels. They get you hooked, then change the line up with useless crap!! Sharknado??!!! Seriously??

    I was a big fan of Ghost Hunters (the only Paranormal Investigative team I ever took seriously), Ghost Hunters International, and Haunted Highway.

    I now watch Destination America channel. “A Haunting” is a very good series and it’s actually as good as Sy Fy’s Paranormal Witness, another show Sy Fy doesn’t put on anymore.

    My mistake, I saw ALL OF season two. Now what?? I Totally Agree with the others who have commented… What about Ghost Mine and a third season of Haunted Highway? ? You’re LOSING LOYAL FANS OF SCI-FI with teasing FANS of just a taste of Really Great SHOWS, only to shut it down leaving us begging for More! At least there’s Destination America channel, TCL, and LMN to tune into to get my Ghost finding fix!!! Wake UP the Executive’s of SCI-FI and get in touch with your viewers! ITrappers that you have NO CLUE WHAT YOUR VIEWERS TRULY WANT TO WATCH! ! This is how a network looses ratings!

    I haven’t seen or heard of second season! I m a die hard fan of the show and would Love to see a third and fourth season! It seems to me that networks get u Hooked on a Great Show only to leave you going through withdrawals when the networks don’t keep it going! ! WHEN will you learn that canceling Great SHOWS that people like me get hooked on Only leads to channel surfing to find other networks that have something similar! !!! Shame on you!

    Love the show. My husband, son and I really enjoy the genre. Wish it was able to have longer investigations per group. Would love to have more episodes per season too.
    All the investigators are lovely to watch as they are totally engrossed in what they do.
    Love it!

    What is going on with the Scifi channel? They are cancelling all my favorite shows including Haunted Highway, Destination Truth, and Ghost Hunters International! And to top it off they are keeping the ego maniac Zak and crew on Ghost Adventures (it’s a joke of a show). I am totally disgusted with the SciFi channel!!!

  8. Sandy says

    yes it seems that syfy is taking all the good shows off like ghost mine ,and others really getting disappointed
