SyFy’s Ghost Hunters International Canceled!

December 14, 2012Comments are closed.


The hit SyFy series Ghost Hunters International has officially been canceled!

For those of who who have been anxiously waiting for a new season to begin, you will be waiting a very long time. Unfortunately, the SyFy network decided to axe the show after just three seasons.

The news comes from lead investigator Barry Fitzgerald via Twitter after a fan tweets, “I’ve missed watching GHI, do u know if its coming back? I hope it does!” and Barry responds, “Nope. It’s over.”

Although execs over at SyFy have not released a statement at this time, I trust Barry knows what is really going on. In fact, Barry’s co-lead investigator Kris Williams hinted at the shows demise a few months ago (click here for a refresher) when she  talked about making changes in her life. She also talked about the infamous bloodletting episode that resulted in a downward slide in ratings.

“As a skeptic, GHI spun off a skeptic team (TAPS)-I don’t feel that bloodletting belongs as a rational investigative tool on a team of skeptics. So, I don’t feel that I fit there,” says Kris.

As for whether Kris will go back to Ghost Hunters, the answer is no.

“Not going back to GH was my choice. There is no bad will, no drama. I love everyone over on GH and I love Syfy. I am very grateful for the time I spent on GH and everything I have experienced. I am personally just ready for something new-life is about moving forward, it’s about taking on new challenges.”

As a fan of the show, I am sad to see it come to an end. There are so many interesting places in the world where this team (or a new one) could have traveled to conduct more interesting investigations of the paranormal. Instead, EW reports SyFy is developing three new ghost related reality shows that may just make you want to switch the channel.

Apparently, the first new show is called Ghost Mine (premiering Jan. 16) and it’s basically a silly combination of mining and ghost hunting. In each new episode, “miners will face the day-to-day challenges of mining, aided by the paranormal investigators who unravel the mysteries surrounding the mine.”

The second new show is called Stranded (premiering Feb. 27) and it will use “self-recorded footage of a diverse group of every-day paranormal enthusiasts — from newlyweds and a brother-in-law to a trio of roommates. Each team of three will be stranded at one of the most haunted locations in America and record the entire experience with hand-held cameras.”

The third new show is the one that is most similar to GHI and it’s called Notorious Hauntings (premiering sometimes in Spring 2013). This series will follow a “group of researchers who investigate reports of extreme and dangerous supernatural activity across the globe.”

It seems ghost hunting is incredibly popular over at SyFy, but they might be taking their paranormal obsession a little over the edge. Honestly, Ghost Mine? Really?

What do you think?

    I think cancelling the show is a mistake..overseas has more views, scenery, ghostly locations, more activities and most of crew were cool… why should one cast member with a problem with a pre recorded before public view create a show being cancelled , instead bring in another cast member or apologize and be more careful on onsite reenactment that might draw out the spirits..

    GHI was wretched. No supportable evidence of anything supernatural during the entire series. A complete flop. Finally SyFy has come to its senses in canning this sophomoric show. Maybe we’ll get lucky and see GH follow in its tracks.

    How could GHI get canceled YET GH survivor. GH is the WORST of all the paranormal shows and have been caught in the past faking evidence.
