The Travel Channel recently ordered six episodes of a new series called "Expedition Unknown" that features paranormal researcher and adventurer Joshua Gates. The show was formerly known as "Destination Truth" and aired on the Syfy channel for five seasons. The series is currently filming the Travel Channel announced on their website today.
Joshua Gates announced some bad news earlier this year that his television show "Destination Truth" will not be returning for another season on the Syfy channel. Gates announced the news to fans on his Facebook and Twitter pages on March 27.
The good news is that the Travel Channel picked up Gates' new show. Gates announced the news about "Expedition Unknown" earlier this month on his Facebook page.
"Expedition Unknown" follows paranormal researcher Joshua Gates and a team of investigators as they explore strange mysteries throughout the world. On each case Gates and his team research local history, interview witnesses, conduct field investigations, and review footage for physical evidence.
Gates announced on March 27 that "Destination Truth" had officially been canceled by Syfy after five seasons. The network hasn't made a statement on why they're axing the show. Many paranormal enthusiasts consider the show to be one of the best paranormal series on television. During the hiatus of the series, Gates, the show's host and producer worked on "Stranded" which is another Syfy paranormal series. "Stranded" was subsequently canceled after only six episodes.
"'Expedition Unknown' chronicles the adventures of Joshua Gates as he investigates iconic mysteries across the globe. Gates begins by interviewing key eyewitnesses and uncovering recent developments in the story, then springboards into a fully immersive exploration. This authentic, roughshod adventure leads Gates closer to the truth behind these unanswered global enigmas," the description on Travel Channel's website reads.
So far there hasn't been an announcement as to when "Expedition Unknown" will air. The series is currently in production.
