TWO HIT ORIGINAL PARANORMAL SERIES COME BACK FOR ALL NEW SEASONS JUST IN TIME FOR HALLOWEEN

"PARANORMAL STATE" PREMIERES SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17 AT 9PM ET/PT WITH BACK-TO-BACK EPISODES

"PSYCHIC KIDS: CHILDREN OF THE PARANORMAL" PREMIERES SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17 AT 10PM ET/PT

New York, NY - September 24, 2010 - This fall, Sundays on A&E are going to give fright fans a real-life chill. A&E returns two hit original paranormal series with the fifth season of "Paranormal State," and the third season of "Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal," premiering Sunday, October 17th at 9PM and 10PM ET/PT respectively.

In "Paranormal State," A&E continues to chronicle the case files of the Paranormal Research Society (PRS), a renowned group of investigators led by Ryan Buell, the director/founder of PRS, who delve into other worlds to solve the most severe client cases ranging from the bizarre to the demonic. The team uses a cache of resources to help families in trouble, including Electronic Voice Phenomenon (EVP) recordings, video documentation, cutting-edge technologies, old-fashioned research and the help from outside experts such as renowned psychics and demonologists.

"Paranormal State" kicks off with two episodes. First is "The Death Room" - where PRS arrives in Ryan's hometown to help the new owner of an old southern plantation unearth its dark history. A painful family secret reveals a tale of greed and neglect, and the team must help free its unwilling victim from her spiritual prison. Next up is "They Only Come Out At Night"- Once night falls in a quaint New England Town, a police officer's family is terrorized by demons. PRS arrives just in time with the family ready to vacate their family home, rather than suffer the advances of these spirit creatures. They have been scratched, pulled, pinched and pushed to the brink. Through investigation and research PRS must come up with a solution to this family's plight and try to save their lovely home.

In "Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal," A&E profiles children who live with an incredible secret: they have psychic abilities. Feeling scared and isolated, these kids have nowhere to turn...until now. Help is on the way in the form of Psychic/Mediums Chip Coffey, Chris Fleming and Kim Russo -- who themselves grew up with these senses -- and licensed psychotherapist Edy Nathan, who has more than 20 years experience. These experts work to uncover the truths of these children, and direct the kids to better manage their abilities.

In the premiere one-hour episode, "Banishing Evil," 12-year-old Nick is tormented by an evil spirit named Mr. Rosenberg. Since Rosenberg entered his life, Nick has been plagued by violent nightmares and physical attacks. He lives in constant fear and his only desire is to be a "normal kid." Psychic/Medium Chip Coffey and therapist Edy Nathan introduce Nick to Anissa, an 11-year-old girl who is so frightened by the ghosts and spirits that surround her that she hasn't been able to sleep alone for as long as she can remember. Nick and Anissa work to develop the strength and confidence to keep evil entities at bay, and ultimately they try to banish Mr. Rosenberg.

"Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal" is produced by Picture Shack Entertainment for A&E Networks with George Plamondon and Betsy Schechter serving as Executive Producers. "Paranormal State" is produced by Four Seasons Productions International Inc. and Go Go Luckey Productions for A&E Networks. Gary Auerbach and Julie Auerbach serve as Executive Producers for Go Go Luckey and Betsy Schechter serves as Executive Producer for Four Seasons Productions International. Robert Sharenow and Elaine Frontain Bryant serve as Executive Producers for A&E on both series.
