"Paranormal Witness is an edge-of-your-seat television experience and we're thrilled that viewers made it a standout hit for us this fall," said Stern. "We look forward to working with Dimitri and Bart as we showcase another terrifying round of true-life hauntings."

"We're thrilled this series is returning; we think it is unlike anything else out there. The stories are totally gripping, visually arresting and genuinely very scary.
