The Dead Files returns with its 11th season tonight on the Travel Channel. The haunting premiere episode takes the show’s stars, Amy Allan and Steve DiSchiavi, to New York.
The premiere episode airs at 10/9c tonight, July 11, on the Travel Channel.
The official synopsis for the season 11 premiere episode, entitled “Darkness Rises,” reads “In Tonawanda, N.Y., Steve and Amy investigate a woman’s claims that paranormal activity in her home has become violent; Steve uncovers the story of a teenager who poisoned children; Amy’s walk reveals a dark entity focused on tormenting the living.”
If you are not able to watch the hour-long episode live as it premieres, according to Travel Channel’s programming schedule, the episode will air again at 12am ET. Alternatively, if you have a Hulu membership, you should be able to stream the episode through their service the following day.
To excite viewers for the new season, Travel Channel had scheduled reruns of past The Dead Files episodes to air before and after the season 11 premiere episode.
If you are unfamiliar with the series’ format, Travel Channel explains “On The Dead Files, physical medium Amy Allan and retired NYPD homicide detective Steve DiSchiavi combine their unique and often conflicting skills to solve unexplained paranormal phenomena in haunted locations across America. Amy and Steve have been a part of the show since 2011.
Last month, Discovery announced in a press release that The Dead Files would return for season 11, which is comprised of 10 hour-long episodes. Teasing viewers with what to expect this season, Steve said “I’ve seen a lot of things throughout my career, but the cases this season shock even me. These families need our help, and for many, we’re their last hope. Amy and I are determined to bring them the answers they need to move forward.” Amy doubled down on that sentiment, adding “I never know what I’m going to encounter when I go into these places, and it can be terrifying. But providing much-needed information for these homeowners, and giving them the tools to overcome these hauntings once and for all, is the ultimate payoff.”
Next week, a new episode will air in the same Thursday night timeslot, called “Demon Seed;” the description reads “A couple is being tormented by demonic entities hell bent on destroying their home.” The press release offers a lengthier synopsis of the season’s second episode: “Steve DiSchiavi and Amy Allan travel to Gatesville, Texas, where a couple is being tormented by demonic entities hellbent on destroying their home and their grandchildren. During their separate investigations, DiSchiavi uncovers the dark and sordid history of a boys’ reformatory turned female prison, while Allan encounters a vicious serpent-like entity that is set on contaminating the souls of all who inhabit the property.”
Tune in to season 11 of The Dead Files, Thursday nights at 10/9c on the Travel Channel.
