PORTSMOUTH — The investigators behind the Sci-Fi Channel’s “Ghost Hunters” program can’t get enough of the Seacoast’s spooky history, so they returned this past week to film a second episode seeking out paranormal activity on the Isles of Shoals.

Producers, a film crew and the stars behind the hit cable reality show spent two days in October looking for scientific proof of ghostly activity at the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse and Fort Constitution. Results from that visit are slated to air on Wednesday, Dec. 10.

On Friday, a black van with yellow letters spelling TAPS (The Atlantic Paranormal Society) pulled up in front of the Athenaeum historical museum in Market Square with other vehicles, and crews began unloading equipment for an afternoon shoot.

Jim Dugan, a supervising producer with “Ghost Hunters,” said his crew spent the week working on a second Seacoast-based episode where they studied the paranormal history of Star Island on the Isles of Shoals, which is a cluster of islands six miles off Portsmouth.
