Syfy has renewed its hit paranormal series “Haunted Collector” for a third season and is inviting locals to submit their own suggestions for the show.
The series, which producers said demonstrated significant viewership gains during its second season by jumping 18 percent for adults ages 18-49, will return with 12 all-new episodes in 2013.
“Eminent paranormal collector John Zaffis and his team of investigators respond to SOS calls from around the country by individuals and businesses who’ve been terrorized by items that have been taken over by paranormal spirits and/or energy,” said a press release. “Through careful research, Zaffis works with the owner to find the best solution to the ghostly problem, such as returning the item to its owner, buying the object in its place origin or storing it in his paranormal museum in Stratford, Conn.”
Supervising Producer Jennifer Hutchins said the show is accepting submissions for homes or businesses from people who would like to be considered for the show. Submissions can be sent to HelpTheHaunted@gmail.com.
“We have yet to be called into Georgia,” Hutchins said.
