If you’ve ever wondered what the true stories behind so many urban legends and horror stories are, this new Travel Channel show is just your thing. In Shock Docs, the network will explore different paranormal tales throughout history across America. The producers of the show promise to give insight into the best-documented sightings, events, and occurrences that can’t be explained by science alone. For example, the true-life hauntings of the “Amityville Horror House” and “The Exorcism of Roland Doe.” The series was announced at the “Wonder Women: Superstars of Paranormal panel at San Diego Comic-Con@Home.

Their first episode will cover the lives and work of Ed and Lorraine Warren, both of whom were pioneers of the paranormal and its investigation. Their work has inspired many other ghost hunters and paranormal enthusiasts, with their techniques and equipment influencing the field until this day. Furthermore, their findings have inspired horror movies such as The Conjuring.

If you can’t wait to learn more about these two paranormal investigators, tune in on Monday, September 7, 2020, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Conny joined her first fandom at the tender age of three and somehow never stopped finding new things to obsess about and love. Her current love is everything Marvel, especially two characters who tend to be frozen at one point or the other. From Drag Race to Harry Potter or musical theatre, as long as it makes her smile (or cry), it’s probably her thing.
