Syfy to debut new 'Ghost Hunters Academy' spinoff on November 11


By Christopher Rocchio, 10/13/2009 

SyFy has announced Ghost Hunters Academy, a second Ghost Hunters spinoff that will feature a group of students learning how to hunt for paranormal activity in haunted hotspots in America and throughout the world, will premiere on Wednesday, November 11 at 10PM ET/PT.

Ghost Hunters Academy will follow veteran ghost hunters Steve Gonsalves and Dave Tango as they train students in the art of investigating paranormal activity.

Gonsalves and Tango will primarily do their teaching outside of the conventional classroom -- instead taking their students to new paranormal hotspots as well as some locations previously featured on Ghost Hunters, including Fort Mifflin and Eastern State Penitentiary in Pennsylvania, and St. Augustine Lighthouse in Florida.

If the students pass the course, they can "graduate" and become investigators on Ghost Hunters or Ghost Hunters International, according to SyFy.

Ghost Hunters' original edition -- which features investigators led by TAPS founders and real-life plumbers Jason Hawes and Grant Wilson -- premiered in October 2004. 

Its currently airing fifth season has averaged 2.94 million total viewers and 1.8 million viewers in the Adults 18-49 demographic during its broadcast run -- both of which represent series' highs.

Ghost Hunters International -- Ghost Hunters' first spinoff -- premiered last year and follows investigators from TAPS as well.   However instead of investigating American locations like in Ghost Hunters, the International edition investigates European locations. 

Its recently-concluded second season averaged more than 2 million total viewers during its broadcast run.

SyFy ordered the pilot for Ghost Hunters Academy under the working title Ghost Hunters: College Edition last October before ordering six episodes of the series under the title Ghost Hunters: New Generation in December.

Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters International and Ghost Hunters Academy are all produced iby Craig Piligian's Pilgrim Films and Television production company.
