Talking about the show, Zak Bagans said, “Aaron, Jay, Billy, and I have had so many unforgettable experiences over the years. To say we’ve seen a lot is an understatement. It’s great to take a moment and reflect on everything together, revisiting and remembering the situations that define us as a team, the show, and the work we do. Not to mention all the times that made us laugh! It’s exciting to share it with our fans in a way they haven’t seen before.”
In an earlier interview, Zak Begans revealed how the change in times have brought changes in the way they conduct investigations. “Honestly, I think about how much we’ve evolved. I look at different phases of myself, gradually learning and absorbing spirits, and the world of the afterlife. I see how it has changed me personally, how it has humbled me, how I stopped provoking demons,” Begans said. “I see the advancements in our investigations, in terms of technology, and our better understanding of spirit communication. The growth is the biggest thing. It is like watching myself grow from a child into a mature adult, in terms of my understanding.”
