Paranormal Superstar Zak Bagans Inks New Multiyear Agreement with discovery+
Bagans to Produce and Star in Multiple New Supernatural Projects; New Episodes of Hit Series Ghost Adventures to Continue Through 2025
Paranormal superstar Zak Bagans has inked a new three-year deal with discovery+ that will bring more of his signature spooky and evocative content to the digital streaming platform through 2025. Under the agreement, the paranormal investigator, executive producer and filmmaker will create, star in and produce over 100 hours of supernatural and horror content for the discovery+ portfolio, including new seasons of the hit series Ghost Adventures, semi-scripted series The Haunted Museum and several additional specials and untitled creative projects in the works.
“We are thrilled to continue our incredible relationship with Zak to create more groundbreaking paranormal content in the years ahead,” said Matthew Butler, General Manager, Travel Channel & Paranormal Streaming Content.
Ghost Adventures debuted as a self-titled documentary, following Bagans and his team of paranormal investigators as they search for evidence of the afterlife. It was commissioned into a series for Travel Channel in 2008 and quickly rose as the network’s highest-rated show spawning a number of specials and miniseries including Ghost Adventures: Screaming Room, Ghost Adventures: Quarantine, Ghost Adventures: Cecil Hotel, Ghost Adventures: Horror at Joe Exotic Zoo and more. The series launched on discovery+ in January 2021 and has consistently trended as a top five franchise on the platform, that features a variety of content across popular passion verticals including lifestyle and relationships; home and food; true crime; paranormal; adventure and natural history; as well as science, tech and the environment, and a slate of high-quality documentaries. Bagans recently joined forces with filmmaker Eli Roth on the new semi-scripted series The Haunted Museum – a cinematic take on the tales of terror behind the most haunted artifacts on display in Bagans’ Las Vegas museum. Bagans appeared as a regular guest on this past season of Food Network’s Halloween Wars providing inspiration for bakers’ spooky confections. His new deal encompasses more investigative-style programs and scripted content as well as brand-new spin-off series, innovative creative projects and signature tentpole events.
The full library of Ghost Adventures content, along with The Haunted Museum, is available to stream on discovery+.
