The son of rock’s prince of darkness and the paranormal investigator who specializes in real fear will take a sledgehammer to open Portals to Hell season 2. Jack Osbourne (the son of Black Sabbath lead vocalist Ozzy Osbourne) and Katrina Weidman will explore historically haunted locations beginning on Friday the 13th of March. Travel Channel will air the two-hour season premiere, which uncovers the terrors which have been kept locked up inside Ohio’s Old Paulding Jail, at 9 p.m.
Paulding, Ohio’s Old Paulding Jail is almost 150 years old. The site is rumored to be haunted by the spirits of former inmates, sheriffs and the victim of a 60-year-old cold case crime. The truth is submerged under a “sea of rumors, cover-ups and theories of what happened to the young woman who was murdered,” according to the official synopsis, and the pair seek the advice of a psychic for clarity. “Determined to find out more, Osbourne and Weidman break down the last remaining sealed jail cell in the basement … and are shocked to discover large bone fragments scattered within.”
“Katrina and I are breaking down walls – literally,” said Osbourne. “We have unprecedented access to a number of locations and are also the first team to ever investigate some of them for TV. They’re incredibly active sites for the paranormal, and we’re going all in to try and capture substantial evidence.”
In the course of the investigation, Osbourne has a “paranormal experience that will forever change him as an investigator and truth seeker,” according to the official synopsis.

The pair will also travels to Fort William Henry in Lake George, New York, the site of “one of the bloodiest massacres in Colonial America;” Denver, Colorado’s Croke-Patterson Mansion which has been “plagued with paranormal activity since its creation” a 130 years ago.
Season 2 will also book a room at “a deadly Thomas House Hotel (Red Boiling Springs, Tennessee), a once-thriving natural springs resort where guests fell victim to deadly waters; Iron Island Museum (Buffalo, New York), a century-old building that is rumored to house not one, but two, portals; Haunted Hill House (Mineral Wells, Texas), a hellish location plagued by rumors of demonic activity; and Shanghai Tunnels (Portland, Oregon), a network of underground tunnels notorious for its role in slavery and kidnapping victims.”
