Ryan Buell’s Final Episode on Paranormal State

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

Final Episode, Featuring Ryan Buell and PRS, Airs Monday, May 2, 2011


Over five years ago, Penn State student and Paranormal Research Society club founder Ryan Buell and the rest of his team filmed the first episode for “Paranormal State.” A lot has changed since then.

All of the core members of “State” have long since graduated from Penn State. The organization is now a private organization. After five successful seasons and a total of 84 episodes airing on A&E to millions of people, Buell & co. have decided to step down from the series to pursue other adventures.

On May 2nd, A&E will broadcast their final episode, and the rest will be history.

Buell announced via his personal blog in January that he would not be returning to “State.” Immediately following his announcement, the rest of PRS, as well as series regulars such as Michelle Belanger and Chad Calek, also announced their departures.

The main reason for walking away from “State” was due to creative differences, exhaustion and to free up time in order to pursue other projects.

“It was an amazing run,” said Buell, who started working on the TV show project when he was 22. “Who else can say they starred and produced in a successful TV series for five seasons? We started this while we were in college!”

Buell is currently preparing for a 40-city film screening tour for the movie, “American Ghost Hunter,” as well as working on a few different book projects.

Many online fans have asked if the end of “State” also means the end for PRS, which Buell and other members stress is far from happening. “If anything, now that we have more time, PRS is going to be way more active,” said Eilfie Music, who’s been with PRS since 2001. PRS, which is still headquartered in State College, Pa., will celebrate its 10th anniversary on September 16th, 2001.

Paranormal Research Society

A&E owns the name Paranormal State and by rights has the ability to do whatever they wish with the name. Paranormal State: The New Class will be continuing on with the name, however, they have no association with the Paranormal Research Society, their investigation techniques, contacts, cases or otherwise.

“Time to Say Goodbye!” – Ryan Buell

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

Ryan Buell announces he is leaving Paranormal State.

“After five seasons, PRS has decided to end “Paranormal State.”
I posted a blog to share the reasons why.” – Ryan Buell

Dear friends,

This is hard to write, because “Paranormal State” has become a defining adventure for my 20s. I started PRS when I was 19, and started developing the show when I was 22, and now here I am at the age of 28. My, how things have changed! For over three years now, we’ve been in the public eye, and we’ve had the time of our lives. We’ve met so many great fans and many have become friends. We’re proud that PS has changed the way the world views the supernatural, and quite honestly you all have changed us.

That is why it is so hard to say goodbye. After very careful thought, discussion with the team, thinking about my future and where my heart needs to go, I’ve come to the decision that I will not be returning for any more seasons of “Paranormal State.” So, after the remainder of this season airs sometime in the spring or summer, that will be it.

We begin filming the last two episodes this weekend, and that is why I am making this announcement. I wanted closure. So, when I step on to the haunted grounds this weekend, it will be for the last time through “Paranormal State.” And yes, my “final director’s log” will truly, indeed be, my final director’s log.

It wasn’t easy coming to this decision. There are a lot of factors involved. The main one, of course, is that I’ve become a different person. I have different goals and views on things. That doesn’t mean I’m giving up investigating. I want to make that very clear. PRS will still remain. In fact, it means I will be able to put more time in to the things that I’ve had to put on hold for the past 5-6 years, such as private research and investigations, UNIV-CON, building the society and more. We put our dreams and aspirations on hold because we believed in the possibility of doing a show about PRS. And like I’ve already said, it has made an impact on many levels. But now it’s time to move on to other possibilities. I have other projects that I’ve had to sit on because I’ve been so preoccupied with “Paranormal State.”
