It’s baaaack. Season two of Portals to Hell finally has a premiere date: Friday, March 13 at 9|8c.

Avid paranormal investigators Jack Osbourne and Katrina Weidman resume their chilling journey to historically haunted locations in the United States, confronting sinister stories of the supernatural as they seek concrete evidence that a spirit world exists. The destinations for this season are even more terrifying than the last. The pair travel to New York’s Fort William Henry, the legendary Ohio State Reformatory, and the Haunted Hill House of Mineral Wells, Texas — to name a few.

“This season is intense,” Katrina says. “Jack and I purposefully explore locations that embody the darker side of the paranormal, as we try to understand why certain places evoke more sinister activity than others. It’s exciting to see what new discoveries we can make in the paranormal field. Yet as we explore the unexplained, we can only presume to know what we’re working with. At the end of the day we really don’t – and that’s the scary part.”

In the special two-hour season premiere, Jack and Katrina head to Paulding, Ohio, to investigate the Old Paulding Jail – an almost 150-year-old site rumored to be haunted by the spirits of former inmates, sheriffs and even the victim of a horrific, 60-year-old cold case crime. The pair find it hard to uncover the truth in a sea of rumors, cover-ups and theories of what happened to the young woman who was murdered. The investigation leads them deeper into the paranormal — and the town’s infamous murder mystery — than they ever expected.

“Katrina and I are breaking down walls – literally,” Jack adds. “We have unprecedented access to a number of locations and are also the first team to ever investigate some of them for TV. They’re incredibly active sites for the paranormal, and we’re going all in to try and capture substantial evidence.”

Following the premiere, eight additional hour-long episodes will move to their regular 10|9c time slot beginning Friday, March 20.
