Now that Grant Wilson has departed the TAPS team, what is in store for the Ghost Hunters? According to Syfy, here is the rundown of the first four of 14 episodes of Season 8.5:

Wednesday, Sept. 5, 9 p.m. ET/PT
Charleston, South Carolina has the distinct honor of winning Ghost Hunters’ America’s Hometown Ghost Hunt contest. TAPS heads straight to the historic Old City Jail, where America’s first female serial killer, Lavinia Fisher, spent her last few days alive before her execution in 1820.

Wednesday, Sept. 12, 9 p.m. ET/PT
TAPS travels to Georgia’s Camp Rutledge, the location of a Friday the 13th movie shoot, in search of “elemental spirits” – created by nature, not humans – and also stops in Marion, North Carolina to help a young mom who fears a ghost might be out to hurt her daughter.

Wednesday, Sept. 19, 9 p.m. ET/PT
In an effort to bring closure to families of the victims of the 1973 Jimani Lounge Massacre – where 32 men died in a horrific arson attack – TAPS fans out across New Orleans, investigating the Jimani Lounge, The Mortuary and a cemetery, in its attempt to contact the fire’s victims.

Wednesday, Sept. 26, 9 p.m. ET/PT
TAPS doesn’t let being outdoors and surrounded by animals interfere with its investigation of the Alexandria Zoo in Alexandria, Louisiana. Zoo staffers have experienced unexplained occurrences that remind them of the pranks pulled by their dearly departed zookeeper, which leaves them wondering if their old friend is playing practical jokes on them from beyond the grave.
