Steve Gonsalves Will Not Be Featured on the 'Ghost Hunters' Reboot ... He's Busy Filming Another Paranormal Show

By

Updated

The beloved show Ghost Hunters has officially been resurrected. A&E Network made the decision to revive the SYFY series as part of a push toward more paranormal programming. “Paranormal worked really well for us in the past,” executive VP and head of programming of A&E Network, Elaine Frontain Bryant, told The Hollywood Reporter

Adding, “It feels like it’s a time in the country where there’s a trend for people to be spiritual without being overly religious. I think paranormal programming can feed that, while being entertainment-forward.” The long-running show will center on OG cast member Grant Wilson and his new team of professional ghost hunters as they search for the truth behind unexplained phenomenons. “I don't chase ghosts,” Grant states in the show’s trailer. “I chase the truth." 

While Ghost Hunters is ready to scare people with new episodes this August, many die-hard fans question what happened to the original team, like Steve Gonsalves.

What happened to OG Ghost Hunters star Steve Gonsalves?

Yes, paranormal investigator Steve is still chasing ghosts. And, he’s actually going to be competing against his former co-star Grant’s new show. According to his social media, the television personality is currently working on a Travel Channel show called Ghost Nation.

“The trio formerly of Ghost Hunters (Jason Hawes, Steve Gonsalves, and Dave Tango) return to television by popular demand for all-new explorations of the other side,” read a statement about the new series on Steve’s Instagram. Additionally, “[the team] will attempt to uncover paranormal evidence like never before, while also debunking false claims. But on these bigger and bolder investigations, the team also will endeavor to track down the true source of hauntings and restore peace and order among the living … and the dead.”

Aside from working on Ghost Nation, Steve participates in a lot of meet-and-greets and fan events. He travels across the United States appearing at different paranormal conventions and ghost hunting events.
