I was thrilled to hear that SyFy has renewed Haunted Highway for a second season with the whole cast/crew of Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman and Fact or Faked's Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble. The non-fiction paranormal show follows the two teams of two as they investigate paranormal activity with only each other to count on.

It took me a bit to get into this show last year, but I ended up really enjoying it as they really put themselves out there and investigate really interesting and remote paranormal reports. The second season will have 6 1-hour episode and airs on SyFy starting July 24, 2013 (and I *really* hope it will air up here in Canada too!).

Here are more details about the Season 2 renewal of Haunted Highway from a media release:

"NEW YORK – April 22, 2013 – Syfy has ordered a second season of its hit paranormal reality series, Haunted Highway. The new six episode season will premiere, on a new night, Wednesday, July 24 at 10PM (ET/PT). The hour-long series follows two teams, Jack Osbourne & Dana Workman, and Jael de Pardo & Devin Marble, as they conduct their own first-person investigations into some of the most frightening claims of paranormal activity in some of America’s most remote regions.

Fueled by eyewitness interviews and evidence collected with state-of-the-art equipment, the two teams will self-document their harrowing face-to-face encounters with the paranormal. The new season features examinations and investigations that will take the teams off the beaten path in places like the Arizona desert, the Sierra Nevada mountains and bayous of New Orleans as they seek werewolf-like creatures, the Black Angel of Death, the ghosts of the famous Donner party and other paranormal phenomena.

This season, in a first for the series, all four cast members will join together for a special investigation of Fort Jefferson in the Dry Tortugas. One of America’s largest and most remote coastal bases, Fort Jefferson is located in the Gulf of Mexico, 68 miles from Key West. Built in 1846 to protect one of the most strategic deep water anchorages in the United States, Fort Jefferson quickly became a horrifying prison fortress. The most famous prisoner of Fort Jefferson was Dr. Samuel Mudd, the physician who set the broken leg of John Wilkes Booth and was allegedly an accomplice in the assassination of President Lincoln. Many report that Dr. Mudd’s angry spirit has never forgiven those who wrongly imprisoned and tortured him. Though the island on which Fort Jefferson sits looks beautiful and tranquil, it is still known as "Death Island" for the number of fatalities among both soldiers and prisoners."

Hat Tip to FactOrFakedFans, thanks for sharing the good news! Now I just hope that we Canadian will also get to see Season 2.  The first season aired up here on Space in Summer 2012 an I would be thrilled if Space picked it up again this summer.
