Cabler has greenlit 13 new one-hour episodes, building on the initial order of 10. Production on fresh segs will begin early next year.

Skein, which racked up 1.7 million total viewers in its premiere, has received some extra love from its sister nets — NBC scared up some cross-promotion Halloween eve, running both “Ghost Hunters” and “Scare Tactics” in primetime. USA, meanwhile, aired an episode of the series Tuesday at 11:30 p.m.

On Sci Fi, “Ghost Hunters” has averaged 1.4 million total viewers — up 37% in the time period from the previous year — since its premiere Oct. 6. Series has also boosted Sci Fi’s 18-34 delivery in the timeslot by 106%.

Show launched as part of Sci Fi’s reality Wednesdays, which have helped lead the cabler to its most-watched Wednesday since January 2003.

“Ghost Hunters” tracks the adventures of real-life plumbers-turned-ghost hunters Jason and Grant as they investigate paranormal activity throughout the country. Craig Piligian and Thomas Thayer exec produce.
