Kindred Spirits 4

Paranormal investigators Amy Bruni and Adam Berry believe that those who have passed might return, and that is when the true danger begins.

In Kindred Spirits, Bruni and Berry enter America's darkest locations demanding answers to the most chilling, haunted mysteries.

Discovering and confronting paranormal activity is just the first step. In each one-hour episode, their ultimate goal is to determine who or what haunts the space and whether it's safe for the living to remain.

Their multi-layered investigations dig into the past in order to identify the dead and analyse the threat.

With an arsenal of paranormal tools and their hands-on investigation style, the duo brings peace to those tormented by restless spirits by giving a voice to the dead.

Throughout the 10-episode run, Bruni and Berry's mission to uncover the truth behind America's most intense paranormal activity takes them to evil and historic locations, including properties that were used as orphanages and asylums, as well as personal homes inhabited by aggressive entities.

Special guests also assist the paranormal duo including psychic medium Chip Coffey and paranormal researcher John Tenney.

In the Season 4 premiere, "Nowhere to Run": Amy and Adam help a single mother left home alone with two frightened children after terrifying, full-bodied apparitions drove away her family.

'Psychic medium' Chip Coffey must figure out who - or what - is to blame.
