After the success of the first season, which aired in 2019, paranormal investigators Jack Osbourne and Katrina Weidman resume their chilling journey to historically haunted locations in the United States, confronting sinister stories of the supernatural as they seek concrete evidence that a spirit world exists.
The new season of the ghost hunting TV show, returns to the US Trvl Channel for a second season on Friday 13th March. There's no news yet as to whether the new season will air in the UK, but it is likely to appear as part of Really's channel's #Freakend lineup in the near future.
The second season of the show premieres at 9pm ET/PT with a two-hour special where the duo aim to uncover the supernatural terrors inside Ohio's haunted Old Paulding Jail. The almost 150-year-old site is rumoured to be haunted by the spirits of former inmates, sheriffs and even the victim of a horrific, 60-year-old cold case crime.
Jack and Katrina find it hard to uncover the truth in a sea of rumours, cover-ups and theories of what happened to the young woman who was murdered. The duo call in a trusted psychic
in their search for answers. Determined to find out more, the pair break down the last remaining sealed jail cell in the basement, and are shocked to discover large bone fragments scattered within.
Now, the possibility of not only contacting spirits, but also solving the town's most infamous murder is on the line. As the investigation deepens, Jack has a paranormal experience that will forever change him as an investigator and truth seeker.
Following the season premiere, eight additional hour-long episodes will move to their regular 10pm time slot beginning the following Friday.

Ahead of the Friday 13th premiere, Katrina said, "this season is intense, Jack and I purposefully explore locations that embody the darker side of the paranormal, as we try to understand why certain places evoke more sinister activity than others. It's exciting to see what new discoveries we can make in the paranormal field. Yet as we explore the unexplained, we can only presume to know what we're working with. At the end of the day we really don't – and that’s the scary part."
The undaunted duo will face their most fearsome cases yet, as they uncover disturbing tales from bygone pasts and unnerving paranormal activity. Jack and Katrina filter through extensive research, utilise advanced scientific equipment and enlist a network of specialists, including psychic mediums, to try and exhume answers behind these terrifying hauntings.
Jack said, "Katrina and I are breaking down walls – literally, we have unprecedented access to a number of locations and are also the first team to ever investigate some of them for TV. They're incredibly active sites for the paranormal, and we're going all in to try and capture substantial evidence."
Later in the season, Jack and Katrina will head to the site of one of the bloodiest massacres in Colonial America at Fort William Henry in New York, the 130-year-old Croke-Patterson Mansion in Colorado that's said to be plagued with paranormal activity, and the once-thriving Thomas House Hotel natural springs resort in Tennessee where guests fell victim to deadly waters.
The duo will also investigate the century-old Iron Island Museum in New York that's rumour to house two paranormal portals, the Haunted Hill House in Texas that's said to be plagued by demonic activity, and a network of underground tunnels under Portland, Oregon with a sinister history linked to slavery and kidnapping.
Perhaps the strangest location that is billed as being a part of the series is the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield. The episode's write up tells viewers that the "deadly prison" is best known for its role in the movie, 'The Shawshank Redemption'. Since this movie is entirely fictional, the relevance of this statement remains to be seen.
