PRODUCTION UNDERWAY AT A FRESH BATCH OF HAUNTED LOCATIONS FOR SEASON 3 OF DESTINATION AMERICA'S FAN FAVORITE SERIES "PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN"
-- There Will be Plenty of Bourbon and Boos as World-Renowned Paranormal Investigators Nick Groff and Katrina Weidman
Embark on the First-Ever Televised Paranormal Investigation of the Jim Beam(R) American Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky. --
(Silver Spring, Md.) - Production is currently underway for season 3 of PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN, starring famed paranormal investigator Nick Groff and beloved paranormal researcher Katrina Weidman as they spend an unprecedented 72 hours locked inside legendary haunted locations. "Living" at these haunted locations, Groff and Weidman believe that the longer they stay, the more the spirits will communicate with them and the more information they can gather about the unknown. As a top-performing series on Destination America, PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN's third season is currently in production and will premiere in 2018.
This season will serve up an extra treat for fans with the first-ever televised paranormal investigation of the Jim Beam(R) American Stillhouse in Clermont, Ky., home of the world's #1 selling bourbon. An abundance of spooky history has been reported on the property, including unusual activity from their Stillhouse to their legendary Warehouse D, sightings of a woman in the windows at the onsite T. Jeremiah Beam home, and a known prankster, Cans Hall, who doesn't shy away from interaction.
Additionally, season 3 will bring the return of a familiar location, the Monroe House in Hartford, Ind. In the second season, Groff and Weidman unearthed something sinister in a crawl space underneath the home - skeletal remains. The question of what is haunting the Monroe House is now more of a mystery than ever. They travel back to the historic location and consult with a biological anthropologist to seek a better understanding of what's on the property and potential connections between the remains and the continued hauntings.
