Wednesday, May 3, 2017 - 18:01

Starring Vincent D'Onofrio, Avan Jogia, and Meatloaf, this 13-episode drama will premiere later this year! Yes you read that right, Meatloaf is coming to Syfy!

Set in an Alaskan town over-run by paranormal forces, Ghost Wars, will chronicle Roman Mercer (Jogia) who must overcome the town’s prejudices and his own personal demons if he’s to harness his repressed psychic powers and save everyone from the mass haunting that’s threatening to destroy them all. 

Simon Barry (Continuum, Van Helsing) created the series and will serve as showrunner, with production underway now in Vancouver. “Ghost Wars is not just a contemporary homage to classic psychological horror, it’s also an opportunity to tell stories about human politics and how we shape our beliefs and lives based on our individual perspectives and biases,” Barry said. “Science, Humanism, Religion and the Paranormal all get a seat at the table. I’m grateful that Chad Oakes and Mike Frislev have assembled such a wealth of talent, both in front of and behind the camera, to hopefully elevate this genre series beyond expectations.”
