NEW YORK, NY — "Ghost Hunters," Syfy's longest-running original reality series, has been renewed for an eighth season. Since its 2004 premiere, "Ghost Hunters" has spawned two spin-offs (with over 200 episodes among the three series), cementing its place as the #1 paranormal franchise in cable. 20 all-new episodes for season eight are slated to premiere on Syfy in 2012.

On Wednesday nights at 9pm for nearly seven years, "Ghost Hunters" has set the standard for paranormal series, offering viewers spine-tingling cases from the files of TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society)—led by Rhode Island plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson.

To date, season seven (premiered February 2010) has attracted 1.1 million Adults 25-54 and 1 million Adults 18-49.

The next episode of "Ghost Hunters" airs at a special night and time: Wednesday, June 1 @ 8pm and features an hour-long case in Hawaii. Guest Josh Gates ("Destination Truth") joins the team as they investigate paranormal claims at the Pacific Aviation Museum in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. The museum's original plane hangars stand as they did on the fateful morning of December 7, 1941, and still bear the bullet holes and bomb craters from the attacks that precipitated U.S. involvement in World War II. Visitors and employees alike have reported several startling experiences at the museum, suggesting that the site's history has made it a hub for paranormal activity.

"Ghost Hunters" is produced in association with Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television ("Dirty Jobs," "The Ultimate Fighter," "My Fair Wedding"). Piligian and Thomas Thayer, along with Rob Katz and Alan David, serve as executive producers.
