Well, this is a bit unexpected. Jason Hawes, the
lovable lead investigator of those wacky ghost hunters of The Atlantic Paranormal Society, announced today that Season 11 will be the last season of Ghost Hunters on the SyFy Channel. While I’d like to believe that Jason and the crew are leaving SyFy in order to produce a more realistic and scientific offering for the viewing masses, I’m guessing this is all coming down to the almighty dollar. The show has been SyFy’s biggest (and perhaps only) success, so I can only imagine that SyFy would do everything in their power to keep the series on its airwaves. Unless Jason and company asked for something completely outrageous (and let’s be real, Jason is the only one calling the shots here, as Grant left years ago).
With heavy heart we want to inform everyone that we are choosing at this time to end our relationship with SyFy channel.
Season 11 will be the last season we will do Ghost Hunters ‘With the Syfy Channel’.
We’ve been one of their top rated and top watched shows since TAPS and Pilgrim Films decided to join forces and create the show Ghost Hunters.
You all have been wonderful and your support has made the show Ghost Hunters such a huge success, As well as changing our lives in all incredible ways.
There are some huge things in the works with TAPS, Ghost Hunters, Pilgrim Films and so much more.
I wish I could share more with you now, But I can’t.
Hopefully real soon though!
I promise we will keep you all up to date with what is coming up in the near future.
Again, Thank you all for the love, respect and support.

It will be interesting to see where the series ends up. SyFy really was the best option for them. Even though channels like Discovery and the History Channel have lost a lot of credibility the last few years, I can’t see either of them really being too interested. Channels more suited to Ghost Hunters, like Destination America, would be a good fit with their already goofy paranormal programming (see Mountain Monsters and Ghost Brothers), but Destination America reaches far fewer subscribers than SyFy. Interesting times ahead…
