This article is more than two years old and was last updated in October 2020.
Really has become the home of paranormal television with viewers tuning in every Friday night for the network's #Frightday event, which features popular ghost hunting shows like 'Ghost Adventures'.
The channel has announced that from November 7th they'll be extending their paranormal offering to two nights of ghostly shows under the new label #Freakend, bringing a spooky end to the week on Thursday as well as Friday.
Really announced the news during their #13NightsOfFrights programming event. They posted on social media, "with so much excitement over #13NightsOfFrights, we've pulled a few strings. Really will now be bringing you paranormal programming every Thursday AND Friday night. The #Freakend begins 7th November."
The full two-night line-up has not yet be revealed, but the channel's first major addition to the new #Freakend schedule is Jack Osbourne and Katrina Weidman's 'Portals To Hell', which starts on Thursday 7th November.
In the eight-part series, which first aired in the US earlier this year, the ghost hunting duo track down and investigate gateways to the spirit world. Katrina is best known for her recent appearance in 'Paranormal Lockdown', but since the show was cancelled in the Spring has teamed up with Jack.
