What to know how things are going for Patrick, Kristen, Papa Smurf and the gold mining crew in Sumpter? I know I am! And we will find out. That's right, Ghost Mine has been renewed for Season 2 and for double the order which means 12 new episodes of Ghost Mine goodness! I hope Fast Eddie, Dingus, Buckett, Greybeard and the greenhorns Jay and Jamol will all be back for Season 2 as well.
This show really got straight to Suzie & my hearts when it debuted earlier this year, and we always looked forward to chatting about it on the podcast. It's a well crafted non-fiction paranormal show with a lot of paranormal activity and a heck of a lot of heart. I was always curious for what activity would crop up, but also always had the safety, and success, of the miners on my mind. It was compelling, heart-driven and really showed people doing their best and very challenging jobs. I thrilled they are headed into Season 2 because I can't wait to see more.
Check out the SyFy media release for more info: "NEW YORK – April 10, 2013 – Dig even deeper into the Ghost Mine mystery when the hit Syfy paranormal unscripted series returns for Season 2 this fall. Twelve all-new episodes are set to premiere starting in September 2013.
In its first season, Ghost Mine averaged 1.25 million total viewers, with 617,000 Adults 18-49 and 727,000 Adults 25-54, making it a Top 10 original cable broadcast series in both demos during its Wednesdays at 10PM ET/PT time period based on Live +7 data.
For Season 2, the rag-tag team of gold miners and pair of paranormal investigators will return to Eastern Oregon’s Crescent Mine to continue their quest for gold and evidence of ghosts at the notoriously haunted mine. Located near the historic gold mining community of Sumpter, Oregon, the Crescent Mine is believed to contain high amounts of gold.
Each hour-long episode of the new season will feature the Ghost Mine crew battling the elements in hopes of striking it rich while delving further into the mysterious history of the Crescent Mine and revealing new information about the recurring Masonic symbols, Native American presence and a spirit named “Joe.” While the miners use the time-honored tools of their trade – including pickaxes and explosives – the paranormal investigators will introduce special new techniques and innovative gear to capture activity, including a revamped version of the popular RIPA (Remote Investigator of Paranormal Activity).
Ghost Mine is produced by 51 Minds with Mark Cronin (Celebrity Paranormal Project, Flavor of Love, Rock of Love with Bret Michaels), Dave Caplan, Jay Bluemke (Ghost Hunters, Ghost Hunters Academy) and Phil Davis (Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files) serving as Executive Producers.
