STRANDED features a diverse group of everyday paranormal enthusiasts as participants. Each of the six hour-long episodes features participants stranded at haunted location for a week and must record the entire experience themselves. The footage from the subjects’ cameras is supplemented by strategically-placed security cameras at each location, creating a suspenseful, completely unscripted first-hand account of each group’s stay. Over the course of the participants confinement, the subjects contend with increasingly pervasive feelings of fear and desolation, resulting in an experiment that represents a unique combination of psychology and the paranormal.

Star Island in New Hampshire serves as the haunted locale in the premiere episode of Stranded. Upcoming shows were filmed at sites such as Seaview Terrace in Newport, Rhode Island, and the West Virginia State Penitentiary in Moundsville, West Virginia.

Star Island an old 50,000 square foot, 200 room Hotel and religious retreat is big with 32 buildings and sits on a 50 acre island Isolated ten miles from the coast of New Hampshire in the Isle of Shoals, cut off from the mainland by the Atlantic Ocean.

“Seaview Terrace” Carey Mansion is a stone-clad 40,000 square foot Gothic mansion that has more than 50 rooms. The estate sits on 20 acres of land and includes a chapel, large ballroom, theater, art galleries, basements, and a massive pipe organ.

  13. Hi Josh! I was born and raised on Maui, and with the many superstitions on the islands I’ve always been fascinated with the paranormal. I would love to be on an upcoming episode if there will be casting call? Can’t find anywhere online to apply to be on the show. My husband is a true non-believer, and myself and my Mother are in full agreement that there are unsettled souls in the afterlife. Hope to hear from you!

  14. Hey, I would love to be on the tv show stranded! I searched everywhere and couldn’t find where to sign up at. I’m a nurse and have also seen things from the other side. So when you cast again please consider me. I’m from a very small town in Minnesota and we don’t get many chances like this. My family thinks i’m crazy for believing in spirits. Sooooo please consider a very small town girl from Minnesota. The paranormal is what I live for, my husband is a non-believer of course. But my nephew is with me and would love to do this. I would love to hear from you!

I have several relatives that say they don’t exist, I would love to shut them up and make true believers of them. Very interested!!!!!!!!

  22. Joslyn Truax says:

    I too am curious on how you go about being on Stranded? I have always been interested in the paranormal, and although I have had quite a few experiences, its never been anything concrete. I am a believer 100%, my husband is right behind me in those beliefs but also sometimes waffles with those beliefs. My father-in-law, big man, huge skeptic….to the point he shows disdain when we have discussions about these things, and you can tell he finds it humorous, as though we are idiots. I want him to go along. I want the big bad man to get the pants scared right the hell off of him. 🙂 If there is any way you can help, even direct me towards where to go to apply, that would be great! As for running away from the things that scare me, I am the opposite and would look for that which scares me. Its the whole point. (I would try my best anyways, depends what you put me up against). Thank you!
