A newspaper reporter who is haunted by his past investigates strange deaths and unexplained phenomena, asking questions that no one else will about cases the police can't – or won't – solve. In the premiere episode, "Pilot," a murder shockingly like his wife's leads Kolchak to Los Angeles, where he has signed on as a reporter with the L.A. Beacon newspaper. Kolchak's colleague, senior crime reporter Perri Reed (Union) is just as eager to get to the bottom of things, but she's skeptical of his wild theories. Together, they'll aid him as he tracks down the bizarre and the inexplicable, the stories you won't find printed in any newspaper.
When the law-abiding legal team that helped put a murderous cult leader (guest star Tony Curran as Damon Caylor) behind bars seemingly goes haywire, committing inexplicable murders, Kolchak is convinced the man is somehow wreaking vengeance from the depths of his prison cell. Meanwhile, Perri, whose reporting on the cult leader’s story helped convict him, fears that she may be next.
When a coed ends up dead after a bizarre accident, Kolchak investigates a strange college society that appears to be performing rituals in a mysterious old house.
A series of murders mirrors a crime spree by a seemingly dead bio-terrorist who claimed he could kill with "hellfire." The FBI and the pompous reporter (guest star William Lucking) who covered the original story think it’s the work of a copycat, but Kolchak is convinced the murders have more supernatural points of origin.
Kolchak investigates when a troubled boy (guest star Zachary Winard) and his seemingly abusive dad (guest star Peter Greene) leave a trail of mysterious deaths wherever they go.
Agent Fain (guest star John Pyper-Ferguson) reappears on the scene after Kolchak refuses to disclose his source in a seemingly routine story about a drug lord’s death at the hands of a renegade band of bikers, and the subsequent disappearance of a DEA agent – a man who may be able to shed light on who murdered Kolchak’s wife.
