The things that go bump in the night will continue to haunt SyFy for a third season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the cable network has officially renewed the documentary-style series "Paranormal Witness."
The series focuses on actual accounts of paranormal experiences as told by everyday people, featuring re-enactments filmed in a documentary fashion intermixed with the witnesses' firsthand accounts. The series evokes a more slickly produced version of similar series like "Sightings" and "Unsolved Mysteries," with past episodes involving hauntings of abandoned mental asylums and mass UFO encounters. The fourth episode of the current season set to air tonight, entitled "The Dybbuk Box," inspired the horror film "The Possession," which will be in theaters on Friday.
The news of renewal comes on the heels of the second season's premiere performing well on August 8th, ranking in the top 10 cable telecasts for the show's 10pm time slot. On average, the new season's first three episodes have been seen by 1.2 million viewers. SyFy's president of original content and co-head of original content for Universal Cable, Mark Stern, made the announcement that the success of the series has officially locked it in for a 20-episode third season to premiere in June 2013. The series is produced by Raw TV, which have brought "The Soup" favorite "Gold Rush: Alaska" and its glory holes to the small screen.
