Paranormal superstar Zak Bagans has inked a new three-year deal with Discovery+ that will bring more of his signature spooky and evocative content to the digital streaming platform through 2025.

Under the agreement, the paranormal investigator, executive producer and filmmaker will create, star in and produce over 100 hours of supernatural and horror content for the Discovery+ portfolio, including new seasons of the hit series 'Ghost Adventures', semi-scripted series 'The Haunted Museum' and several additional specials and untitled creative projects in the works.

"We are thrilled to continue our incredible relationship with Zak to create more groundbreaking paranormal content in the years ahead," said Matthew Butler, General Manager, Travel Channel & Paranormal Streaming Content. "Zak's authentic voice, engaging style, vivid storytelling and creative vision are a true asset to our streaming portfolio, generating gripping content that pushes this genre to new heights. He is an icon of the brand. There is so much more to come, and we are eager to deliver it to our fright-loving viewers."

Discovery+ had previously announced that they had green lit a second seasons of the horror anthology series, 'The Haunted Museum'. The series is a collaboration between Zak and renowned filmmaker Eli Roth that presents frightening and hellish tales inspired by the spooky relics on display in Zak Bagans' Las Vegas museum.

Opening his museum vaults, Bagans, a devoted collector of the macabre, shares the secrets and stories behind a curated selection of his most prized haunted items through scripted film shorts produced by Roth and his accredited team, and with featured commentary from Bagans.

'Ghost Adventures' debuted as a self-titled documentary, following Bagans and his team of paranormal investigators as they search for evidence of the afterlife. It was commissioned into a series for Travel Channel in 2008 and quickly rose as the network's highest-rated show spawning a number of specials and miniseries including 'Ghost Adventures: Screaming Room', 'Ghost Adventures: Quarantine', 'Ghost Adventures: Cecil Hotel', 'Ghost Adventures: Horror at Joe Exotic Zoo' and more.

The series, which sees Zak investigate alongside Aaron Goodwin, Billy Tolley and Jay Wasley, launched on Discovery+ in January 2021 and has consistently trended as a top five franchise on the platform. This new three-year deal will see the GAC investigating all-new incidents of extreme and disturbing paranormal activity through until at least 2025.

"Fans of paranormal have flocked to Discovery+ to watch our deep collection of unexplained and spooky series all year round. This devoted fanbase has been highly engaged, making paranormal a top performing genre on the service," says Lisa Holme, Group SVP Content and Commercial Strategy, Discovery+. "A true leader in the space, we can't wait to do even more with Zak in the coming years that we know will delight his fans."

The full library of 'Ghost Adventures' content, along with 'The Haunted Museum', is available to stream on Discovery+.
