New Show Alert: 'Ghosts of Morgan City' Premieres June 21
There’s something strange happening in Morgan City, Louisiana and Travel Channel’s latest paranormal team is ready to get to the bottom of it.
There’s something strange happening in Morgan City, Louisiana and Police Chief James “Bo” Blair is ready to get to the bottom of it. With a surge in unusual emergency calls related to unexplained paranormal encounters, Chief Blair has reached out to Police Chief Mike King of Shepherdstown, West Virginia, who not too long ago was in a similar situation. Following Chief King’s advice, Chief Blair decides to recruit a team of specialists including local paranormal investigator Jereme Leonard, former FBI agent Ben Hansen and psychic medium Sarah Lemos. Together, these three make up the cast of the new Travel Channel series, Ghosts of Morgan City, premiering on Friday, June 21 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
In each of the eight 1-hour episodes, Jereme, Ben and Sarah attempt to figure out what’s causing the recent uptick in bizarre activity around Morgan City by looking for patterns and clues in every case they investigate. Local historian Diane Wiltz helps the team dig up disturbing history associated with the area. As it turns out, the hauntings aren’t isolated to Morgan City — they’re happening throughout the entire St. Mary Parish (a parish is Louisiana’s equivalent to a county).
In the premiere episode of Ghosts of Morgan City, Jereme, Ben and Sarah get word from the police department that there’s a shapeshifting mist in the area. The puzzling details take on new meaning when they discover that the mist has ties to the first female executed in Louisiana. As the case wraps up, more calls start to come in from outside Morgan City, sending the team to every corner of the parish in search of answers. From a plantation with a history of voodoo and a violent Civil War battle, to a family home haunted by the spirit of a young girl and the team’s own headquarters within the city’s historic archives, each clue brings the group one step closer to ending a haunted tug of war.
