Haunted Collector Axed By SyFy Channel


It looks like another Paranormal Show is getting the axe from Syfy Channel. Haunted Collector has been officially cancelled via a phone interview to a Syfy Executive.

Rumors have been circulating the internet from John Zaffis’ social pages about the show being cancelled in October. A Facebook post from John Zaffis from October 31, quotes: “hi all just letting you know haunted collector will not be coming back sorry to all our fans”

Fans of the doomed show responded with sadness and disbelief, and some offered support.

“For some reason networks will suddenly go against all that the viewers watch. A Haunting on Discovery Channel is a prime example. But by no means the only one that has done this. I know that Mr Zaffis will continue doing what he does best, helping those with paranormal problems.” posted one fan.

“Well will no longer be watching the Syfy channel, this was the best show on there. I did not care for Ghost Hunter, it looked totally fake, but this show was more real then that and I liked it.” - Added another fan.

Brian Cano, another cast member from the show, left a lengthy blog post about his agitated disbelief of the show being cancelled.John Zaffis

It is sad to see that great shows like this are following in a wake of cancellations, while making room for other shows. What will happen now to the cast and crew of Haunted Collector? Will Johnny Zaffis continue in the demonology field and move forward on helping people with paranormal problems? Only time will tell.

    But yet they keep stupid shit on like “Face Off” and their other crappy reality shows. I hope another channel picks them up. There is one more show that if it goes so will “Syfy”!!!!!!!!!

    HC was a good fun show, but at least they had a show, and a good gig for a while but what another season and another etc… That’s the business in network television get over it, and what’s wrong with FaceOff ? why the negativity keep it to yourself no one cares already.

    Still totally disgusted with SyFy’s decision to cancel HC..I enjoyed it much more than Ghost Hunters they had better stories and the crew brought you into their investigation..

    Unfortunately? People like to watch borderline Voyeurism, people making stupid mockeries of their lives by creating a big bubble for us to watch them in.

    We as Paranormal lovers unfortunately get shot in the foot when they are looking for someone to cull!

    Your lucky you got some many shows! we hardly have any UK side, and the ones that do show are repeats!

    Tis a shame as i managed to catch this show one time and i thought it was really good. Im sure John will come up with some other form of keeping this alive im sure.

    It saddens me to see that this show is being cancelled when John Zaffis (who I’ve personally met and can say is such a wonderful man) the nephew of the great Ed and Lorraine Warren (without them this field would not be what is today) has been studying the paranormal and demonology for 29 years, and has been referred to as the Godfather of the paranormal just to make room for the amateurs and nonsense paranormal shows who do not have a quarter of his knowledge in the matter. I enjoyed the show very much and have much respect for this man. Terrible decision SYFY!!!!

    I think haunted collector is by far better and more realistic than ghost hunter. I am hoping syfy will change their mind and let season 4 and more air on their channel.

    I am sad to see HC go by the wayside too. But that is no reason to bash Ghost Hunters. I think they are the best paranormal ghost hunting show on TV. I don’t think they are fake at all. I have watched them since they first came on! They seem to be the most honest ones on, period! Keep up the good work Jason and Steve and the crew!!!

    I loved haunted collector!! It’s a shame the Sci-Fi channel is turning into network television with shows similar to “the survivor” …and face off….the only program I watch on the Sci Fi channel now is ghost hunters!! ….and their “season runs” are getting shorter and shorter!! I loved the channel when it had ghost hunters, followed by ghost hunters international, then also the haunted collector and one of my biggest favorites was with josh gates and his crew!! ….now there are only regular network shows on….face off is really boring, and their new series are also a yawn…if ghost hunters goes….so do I…..!!!!! …..face off and the show comparable to the network version of the survivor are NOT SCI- Fi programming….they are just shows the other networks apparently would not pick up!!!

    I can not believe they cancelled the show! Wed night on Syfy was my favorite night of the week. I loved all of their paranormal shows. Seems they dont care its one of their most popular nights for veiwers.

    I thought that SyFy really had it going on as far as being a channel where they were getting into something that is breaking through many taboos, and finding out what is really out there in the paranormal world. They had a line up of good shows that enlightened people, educated them, if you will, and also let folks know that there is a community out there who DOES care, and believe, and will help them in a time of need. You were my Wednesday night fix. I may still turn you on to catch Ghost Hunters, but I think you have alienated enough of us, that you just may be hurting them in the rating games, also. People won’t want to watch your channel, and therefore won’t watch them, either. You are making a monumental mistake here when you had the tiger by the tail. There are better shows on YouTube that I will go to now to watch. At least they have Paranormal TV there. Your original movies are laughable, and in the long run, you will most likely see that we, the viewers were right, and you will be sorry. Man, ya’ll had the Godfather of the Paranormal…..what idiots… sorry just calling it like I see it….VERY DISAPOINTED IN FLORIDA
