The hit television series Ghost Asylum on Destination America is thrilled to announce that they are gearing up to shoot a brand-new season. They will be filming 16 episodes throughout the US and are looking for unique locations to open their doors to our production.

But the show goes beyond that to promote the historical aspects of the building and the surrounding areas. Digging up the rich cultural makeup and the unusual tales that go along with it.
Currently they are planning to shoot in the South East but if a location is right for the production then the team is happy to travel further.
