A&E announced today that it is reviving Ghost Hunters for what will be its 12th overall season. The news comes as part of a new focus on paranormal-related programming coming to the cable network in 2019.

Ghost Hunters last aired in 2016 on Syfy, where it spent 11 seasons before the team behind the show announced that Season 11 would be its last on the network. It was strongly hinted at the time that moves were being made to find the show a new home, so today's announcement does not come as a complete surprise.

The series follows a team of paranormal investigators lead by Grant Wilson as they investigate hauntings at various locations across the country where paranormal activity is reported.

A&E has ordered 20 episodes for Season 12 of Ghost Hunters, which will premiere on August 21 at 9:00pm.
