All-New Series Premieres Thursday, September 4 at 10:02/9:02c and 10:32/9:32c
In Monsters Underground, Bill Brock and his team are hell-bent on proving the existence of monsters living beneath the earth’s surface. During their underground investigations, one wrong move could turn the cave into their tomb. But the most dangerous threat of all is the pitch-black darkness and the risk of coming face to face with a cave creature – such as the shape-shifting Aswang or the bat-like Olitiau – and not seeing it until it’s too late.

Volcano Cavern Olitiau premieres Thursday, September 4 at 10:02/9:02c
In the maze that is Volcano Caverns in Flagstaff, Ariz., Bill Brock and his team believe that a giant, deadly reptilian bat creature known as the Olitiau, or “cave demon” has made this cave its home. One of the attributes of this blood-sucking creature is that it can sense fear in its prey. As the team explores the labyrinth of tunnels, sounds of the creature get closer and closer. The team gathers where they last heard the creature and wait. As a heat signature begins to appear on their thermal camera, their night vision dies, leaving them blind and vulnerable to becoming the Olitiau’s next victims.
Graveyard Gulch Mapinguari premieres Thursday, September 4 at 10:32/9:32c
Something has been feeding on Northern California’s black bear population, and Bill Brock’s team of monster hunters suspects the culprit is the Mapinguari, a descendant of the giant prehistoric sloth. Evidence leads them to Graveyard Gulch, an isolated cave that’s treacherous because of what might be living there but also due to extremely narrow passageways and slippery surfaces that lead to deadly drop-offs. Following the stench of the Mapinguari, the team sets their trap deep underground. As they wait in the dark, Brock’s thermal camera picks up an image while something unexpected and deadly prepares to strike.
