-- Premiere Episode Investigation Unearths Skeletal Remains at Monroe House in Hartford City, Ind. --
(Silver Spring, Md.) - They're baaack! TLC is excited to announce the second season of the hit television series PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN, in which world-renowned paranormal investigators Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman spend an unprecedented 72 hours locked inside a haunted location in an effort to capture groundbreaking paranormal evidence. TLC is treating fans and new viewers alike to a premiere night event that kicks off with the one-hour special PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN: EVIDENCE REVEALED on Friday, December 16 at 9/8c, highlighting the most chilling evidence Nick and Katrina captured throughout the first season, followed by the PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN season 2 premiere at 10/9c. Subsequent new episodes will air on Fridays at 9/8c.
No stone goes unturned for Nick and Katrina, who believe that the longer they stay confined in a haunted location, the more spirits will communicate with them. The season premiere takes them inside the forbidding Monroe House in Hartford City, Ind., where ghostly happenings and evidence of ritualistic occult activity that have spooked the homeowner. Former residents and construction workers have fled the property after coming face to face with a dark entity, leaving the home uninhabitable. The genesis of the haunting is unclear, but three fires and resulting deaths in the last 100 years have not served to quell paranormal activity within the home.
The intense exploration of Monroe House culminates with Nick and homeowner Eddie Norris journeying into a crawl space beneath the home and unearthing what appeared to be skeletal remains. Local law enforcement was notified immediately. Viewers can witness the heart-pounding discovery first-hand in the PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN season premiere.
PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN has found a new home on TLC after the series became an instant hit on sister network Destination America, extending TLC's successful Friday night paranormal strand following the finale of current hit series KINDRED SPIRITS.
Additional jaw-drawing lockdown locations investigated in the 12-episode second season of PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN include: St. Ignatius Hospital (Colfax, Wash.) and Old Chatham County Jail (Savannah, Ga.) - which were opened up to paranormal investigators for the first time ever - as well as the Shanley Hotel (Napanoch, N.Y.), Rampart Street Murder House (New Orleans), White Hill Mansion (Fieldsboro, N.J.), Shrewsbury Prison (England), and the Statler City Hotel (Buffalo, N.Y.).
