U.S. networks Travel Channel, HGTV and Destination America are among those bringing back popular series, including Ghost Adventures, Love It or List It (pictured) and Buying the Bayou. 

Season nine of Travel Channel’s Ghost Adventures is set to premiere on February 15 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

The My Tupelo Entertainment series kicks off with an episode set in the Oman House in Los Angeles, a place believed to be haunted by Sharon Tate, the victim of Charles Manson’s cult of followers in 1969.

The 13 x 30-minute series will follow returning investigators Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin as they travel to a different haunted location each episode to meet up with locals, eyewitnesses and experts and compile the haunted history of each place.

The ninth season will feature investigations in the old mining town of Bannack, Montana; New York City’s Morris-Jumel Mansion; a local pub in Long Island, New York; the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana; and a former cement factory in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Over on sister network HGTV, nine series are returning for new seasons that will premiere from January to March.

Property Virgins will launch its newest season with host and real estate agent Egypt Sherrod returning, while February 17 will see the newest season of Love It or List It premiere, with real estate expert David Visentin and designer Hilary Farr back to battle it out.
