SYFY'S BONE-CHILLING HIT SERIES "PARANORMAL WITNESS" RENEWED FOR A THIRD SEASON

Twenty-Episode Pick-Up Order To Premiere June 2013

NEW YORK - August 29, 2012 - Based on the ratings success of the first three episodes of Season 2 of Paranormal Witness, Syfy is ordering a 20-episode third season of the true-terror docudrama, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. Season 3 is expected to air in June 2013.

The Season 2 premiere, which aired Wednesday, August 8, was a Top 10 telecast in the 10 PM hour on cable that night. The first three episodes of the season have averaged 1.2 million total viewers.

Paranormal Witness airs Wednesdays at 10 PM ET/PT. In tonight's episode, "The Dybbuk Box," a Portland, Oregon antiques dealer ignores warnings not to open the old curio cabinet he bought at an estate sale. He unknowingly unleashes a dybbuk, a malevolent spirit from Jewish folklore, which begins to wreak havoc on his life. This real-life story is the inspiration for the feature film, The Possession, in theaters on August 31.

Paranormal Witness recounts the bone-chilling, real-life paranormal experiences of everyday people and allows viewers to experience the terrifying moments for themselves through gritty, realistic cinematic reenactments. Actual eyewitnesses share their firsthand accounts of the inexplicable phenomena that forced them to try to make sense of the scariest, most inconceivable events of their lives. Paranormal Witness is produced by Raw TV (Locked Up Abroad and Gold Rush: Alaska). Series producers are Mark Lewis and Lucy van Beek. Executive producer is Bart Layton.
