The Ghoul Boys are back to hunt ghosts in their new series ‘Ghost Files’

After a year since Buzzfeed Unsolved: Supernatural aired its last season, Ryan Bergara and Shane Madej—also known as the Ghoul Boys—are back to look for paranormal evidence in their brand-new series, Ghost Files.

On July 19, the internet’s favorite ghost hunters gave their fans the first glimpse of Ghost Files on the social media accounts of Watcher, a production studio handled by former Buzzfeed creators, Ryan, Shane, and Steven Lim.

The 10-minute first look clip sees Ryan and Shane standing on the set of the upcoming series while greeting their fans and saying that the show will air in September of this year. The clip then takes fans to a sneak peek of the first episode of Ghost Files, where they make their “triumphant return” to one of the most haunted places on Earth: Waverly Hills Sanatorium.

In the video, Shane recounts the first time they went to the haunted place in 2017, where they “looked green” and just walked inside the place with only flashlights and cameras in their hands.

For this new show, the duo proudly announces that they got the brand-new tech and tools needed for ghost hunting, and they’re way “much smarter” than before.

The clip then proceeds to show the Ghoul Boys exploring the hallways of Waverly Hills Sanatorium.

Just like Unsolved which previously had an accompanying show called Postmortem, Ghost Files will also have an aftershow called Debrief, where Ryan and Shane will answer fans’ questions and prepare surprises for them.

Shortly after Watcher dropped the first look of their most-anticipated show, fans (and even Watcher themselves) took to Twitter to share their excitement about the premiere of Ghost Files.

Will Ryan encounter a ghost? Will Shane threaten another demon? Will the Ghoul Boys finally find paranormal evidence? All will be revealed in Ghost Files, coming soon in September.

Ghost Files was first announced by Watcher in December 2021. In the same month, the network also asked their fans to submit evidence or personal anecdotes of paranormal events in Los Angeles, Chicago, Kentucky, or Nevada, which can be possibly featured in Ghost Files.
