Paranormal investigators Amy Bruni, Adam Berry and psychic medium Chip Coffey return to Travel Channel and Discovery+ with 10 new one-hour episodes of KINDRED SPIRITS premiering Friday, January 20 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. These intrepid investigators help people who are tormented by the dead by settling spirit activity, capturing evidence and bringing closure to each location they visit. Utilizing several tools to communicate with spirits, Bruni, Berry and Coffey will discover shocking stories by visiting some of America’s most haunted homes and historic sites. During their emotional and terrifying investigations, this all-star paranormal team captures evidence, settles spirit activity and brings closure to each location they visit.
In the season premiere, the investigators travel to Greene County Historical Society and Museum, a former poorhouse in Pennsylvania. For nearly 100 years, the institution was said to be a safe haven for the impoverished and disenfranchised. But, in reality, it was run more like an asylum. In the 1890s, a cruel and sadistic overseer named William B. Cage took over the institution. He was known to beat the inmates and he was even accused of chaining individuals in the basement rooms where he allowed them to starve as punishment for minor infractions. Interestingly, all of the inmates who made these reports disappeared from the records. Were they sent away, did they move or were they permanently silenced by Cage is uncertain. When the knowledge became public, Cage was removed. In 1968, the facility reopened and became a cultural center.
Today, employees and guests report unexplained footsteps and many have witnessed full-bodied apparitions. Does William Cage or troubled inmates still walk the halls? Bruni, Berry and Coffey investigate multiple locations on the site, including the basement where shackles can still be seen, in hopes of resolving the pains of the past.
What do you think? Are you excited about the return of Kindred Spirits later this month?
Love this show much more than any of the others. They try to actually help both the living and dead.
