DARE TO ENTER AMERICA'S MOST BLOODCURDLING PARANORMAL HOTBEDS IN A BRAND-NEW SEASON OF "GHOST ASYLUM" ON DESTINATION AMERICA

-Season 2 of GHOST ASYLUM Premieres Sun. April 5 at 10/9c only on Destination America-

(Silver Spring, Md.) -Phantoms, demons, and shadow creatures beware! Destination America's hit series GHOST ASYLUM is back following the passionate paranormal team, the Tennessee Wraith Chasers (TWC), as they hunt down ghosts in the most frightening asylums, sanitariums, penitentiaries and haunted hotspots across the U.S. Stepping into abandoned locations that only the bravest dare to enter, the team's goal is not just to conjure paranormal activity but to physically capture restless souls with their custom-created ghost traps. TWC is made up of experts in the world of ghost hunting, from engineers to historians, all approaching each investigation with the utmost knowledge and preparation. These ghost whisperers have little fear, entering even more bone-chilling locations this season, including the Bell Witch Cave near their hometown of Nashville, and the Pennhurst Asylum outside of Philadelphia. GHOST ASYLUM premieres Sunday, April 5 at 10/9c on Destination America with eight new episodes. The second half of the 16-episode season will premiere later in 2015.

"The sites that GHOST ASYLUM travel to are some of the scariest this country has to offer; the types of places that are inspirations for American horror movies, locations that are not for the faint of heart" said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "As Americans desire for exploration continues to grow, the new season of GHOST ASYLUM features terrifying national spots that require a fearless team and no one is braver than TWC".

To ensure no apparition goes unseen and no disembodied voice unheard, the TWC gang employs high-tech gadgets and investigative gear to help summon, track, and ultimately catch the spirits that haunt each location. For each investigation, the GHOST ASYLUM team construct the most intricate traps specifically detailed for every location including homemade contraptions called the Wraith Dome and the Prism Catcher. The second season of GHOST ASYLUM adds to the thrill with some of the largest most elaborate traps TWC has ever created.

In the premiere on Sunday, April 5 at 10/9c, the team travels to Bethany, N.Y., where one of the Northeast's deadliest locations, Rolling Hills Asylum, is filled with sadness, tragedy and despair. More than 1,700 deaths have occurred on the property, which was once a haven for the mentally ill and physically impaired and became a hell home after the mistreatment of patients led to mysterious deaths. According to local legend, the spirit of a deformed giant roams the halls along with a torturous nurse who was notorious for terrifying the patients. Now, TWC ventures to Rolling Hills Asylum on a mission to catch these troubled souls.

GHOST ASYLUM makes its terrifying return to Destination America after a successful first season last fall. The series currently ranks as Destination America's Top Series Ever among W25-54 and W18-49 among both rating and delivery.

GHOST ASYLUM is produced for Destination America by Tremendous! Entertainment with Colleen Needles Steward, Shannon Keenan Demers and Erin Ryder as executive producers. At Destination America, Fay Yu is executive producer, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President of Investigation Discovery, Destination America, American Heroes Channel, Discovery Life Channel, and Discovery Family Channel.
