New York, NY � March 21, 2007 � Ghost Hunters, SCI FI's popular reality series, will return to the Channel for an exciting fourth season. America's favorite paranormal plumbers, Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson, will deliver 13 episodes of spine-tingling investigations when the show returns next year. Upcoming episodes will feature the intrepid Ghost Hunters exploring a chilling range of bizarre occurrences that will challenge the most hard-boiled of skeptics.
In an added bonus for viewers, the Ghost Hunters will round out the third season with six extra episodes set to premiere this spring, and an additional six slated for debut this fall. From investigations of stateside hauntings to a tour of Jack the Ripper's London and an exploration of the eerie Lisheen Ruins of Ireland, Jason and Grant leave no metaphysical stone unturned. The 2006 season of Ghost Hunters ranked as the highest-rated and most-watched season in HH ratings and all key demos. Season three also marked the first time audience numbers in the key P18-49 and P25-54 demos averaged over 1 million viewers throughout its run.
SCI FI further announced the 2nd annual Ghost Hunters Live special on Halloween night. The first Ghost Hunters Live, a one-of-a-kind, 6-hour investigative television event, tripled the viewing audience for the time period.

The one-hour weekly reality series follows a group of real-life "ghostbusters" as they investigate haunted houses and establishments throughout the country. Enjoying record-high ratings throughout its series run, Ghost Hunters has featured speaking entities, mysteriously moving furniture, ghostly visages and a healthy dose of squabbling within the investigating team. Being scared has never been so much fun!
