‘Ghost Hunters’ Returns Without Grant Wilson
September 4, 2012
The hit SyFy series Ghost Hunters will return on September 5th without Grant Wilson, but the show will go on.
Investigator Dave Tango states in the preview (below), “with Grant gone, the rules are changing.”
We’re not sure what rules he’s referring to, but changes are clearly in store. The biggest change involves who will be replacing Grant as Lead Investigator and we’re happy to report that it will be fan favorite Steve Gonsalves.
During an interview with The Rhode Show, Jason Hawes discussed how hard it’s been to find a new team member (to replace Steve) and he confirmed that a new investigator has already been added of the team.
“This is definitely with in the top seasons. The amount of activity caught I think people are now able to see the interaction of the team. How everybody intermingles. We brought a new investigator in so people get to see how that person works out with the rest of the crew.
“When I’m bringing somebody in we’re trying to look for somebody – first off common sense – they need common sense and you would be surprised how hard that is to find sometimes. We’re looking for people who don’t automatically claim everything is a haunting, but not overdue trying to disprove it as well. They need to be able to ride that fine line. Look for the explanation. They don’t have to be a believer; of course it helps out if they are part skeptic.”
When a fan asked Jason whether it would be “weird” to do the show without his “partner in crime”, Jason responded, “No. We [Grant] still talk all the time & Steve’s been with me longer then G.”
That was news to us. We always assumed that Steve came after Grant, but apparently that’s not the case.
The mid-season opener begins with an investigation at an old jail in South Carolina and as you can see in the preview (below) a woman gets “attacked” by an entity – but it apparently was not Amy Bruni.
It’s been awhile since one of our crew members unwittingly became part of the investigation. Wednesday night ends that streak!
”We did a case in South Carolina an old jail where one of our production people actually got sort of pulled into the investigation. She didn’t want to be a part of it.”
That. Sounds. Awesome!
