Travel Channel and discovery+ have just the thing to cure your after-Halloween blues: a new season of Destination Fear.
Join paranormal investigators Dakota Laden Chelsea Laden, Alex Schroeder and Tanner Wiseman as they set out on another road trip to explore haunting activity in a variety of locations. Last season, they investigated hauntings in Europe, and for the new season, their destinations will be in the US.
The new season of Destination Fear will premiere on Travel Channel Friday, November 25 at 9:00 p.m. ET. After that, a new episode will debut each Friday at 9:00 p.m. ET. All episodes of Destination Fear will be available to stream the same day on discovery+.
Dakota is pushing his team even harder this season, challenging them to check out even more haunted locations, and he has added a hard twist by removing flashlights from their arsenal of equipment. This leaves them to literally face their fears in the dark.
We are also promised many other new “experiments” in the team’s continuing efforts to prove or disprove paranormal theories. Here is an episode guide for season four of Destination Fear:
November 25: Cresson Sanatorium and Prison, Part One – Dakota, Chelsea, Tanner and Alex travel to Cresson, Pennsylvania to visit the gigantic Cresson Sanatorium. This 20-building property once served as a sanatorium, mental hospital and prison, and has quite a history. The spirits said to haunt the massive area include children’s ghosts and an entity that uses its powers to mimic humans.
December 2: Cresson Sanatorium and Prison, Part Two– The team members are split up and tasked with each exploring their own building alone. That’s bad enough, but they also must spend the night in the cell block without a flashlight…and worse yet, the cell block was home to one of the most terrifying serial killers in the US.
December 9: Defiance Jr. High School – The team visits an abandoned junior high school in Ohio, which is said to be haunted by a killer custodian. Will they be able to hear the killer’s jangling keys?
December 16: Old Historic Harriman Hospital – The next stop on our haunted tour of the US is a deserted hospital in Tennessee. There have long been rumors of haunting activity on the property, but little background.
December 23: Winchester Mystery House – This episode features one of the most legendary haunted houses of them all, the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose, California. The home includes walled-off doors and windows, a ten foot tall stairway with 44 steps, and multiple levels in different areas. At its largest, it had somewhere in the neighborhood of 500 rooms. Can the team figure out what’s going on behind the home’s many doors and walls?
December 30: Ashmore Estates – The team investigated this decrepit house in Illinois in the past, and it was such an intense experience that they vowed to never go back. But some new information about the place forces them to reluctantly return for another investigation.
January 6: Mid-Orange Correctional Facility – An old juvenile detention center in Warwick, New York is said to be inhabited by youthful spirits. Dakota wants to bond with the ghosts, but he and the team may get more than they bargained for during their investigation.
January 13: Norwich State Hospital – In the season finale, Dakota and the team visit the infamous Norwich State Hospital, a psychiatric facility that operated from 1904 – 1996. Though several buildings on the site have been demolished, the team finds a sufficient amount of paranormal activity present in those still standing.
