Destination America is taking the reality television genre to a place it’s never been before, by airing an exorcism live on TV, with “Exorcism: Live!” in October.

The live event will take place at the original Exorcist House in the suburbs of St. Louis where the infamous ritual was performed on Roland Doe in 1949, and which inspired the film “The Exorcist.”

“Exorcism: Live!” will air in October, just in time for Halloween, and to commemorate the 66th anniversary of the house which inspired “The Exorcist.” The event will follow the Tennessee Wraith Chasers, as well as the psychic medium Chip Coffey as they search through the Exorcist House, using state of the art technology to do daytime and nighttime investigations, documenting as much evidence as they can of demonic entities on live TV.

“As we step into one of the most haunted and well-known spirit destinations in America, ‘Exorcism: Live!” will show exactly what is inside this infamous, highly dangerous and possessed home.” said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America, in a statement. “By actually exorcising this iconic house live, Destination America will do what it does best — bringing never before seen experiences to television.”

“Exorcism: Live!” will air on Oct. 30 at 9 p.m. ET on Destination America.
