Syfy’s ‘Destination Truth’ returns as ‘Expedition Unknown’ on Travel Channel… Sort of…

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on January 6th, 2015

Josh Gates announced on on March 27 last year that his television show “Destination Truth” would not be returning for another season on the Syfy channel via his Facebook and Twitter pages.

It was announced a few months later that the Travel Channel ordered six episodes of a new series called “Expedition Unknown” featuring Josh Gates.

While some outlets reported that the Travel Channel was basically renaming Destination Truth as Expedition Unknown, that is not the case.

I’m not even sure if the new show will investigate anything cryptozoology or cryptid related.

Show description from the Travel Channel website:

Expedition Unknown chronicles the adventures of Josh 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, such as the disappearance of Amelia Earhart’s plane.

Josh Gates is an adventurer and avid explorer with a unique brand of humor and passion for off-the-map excursions.

Catch the premiere of Expedition Unknown, Thursday, Jan. 8 at 9|8c on the Travel Channel.

    As for Josh Gates…I will tune in for the same reasons I watched Destination Truth… 🙂

  3. Dr Kaco responds:

    @springheeledjack – yes Josh is pretty damn witty and he takes us to places we probably won’t ever get to go but in all it’ll probably be the same format.

  4. springheeledjack responds:

    And Dr Kaco . . . you would be right. 🙂

    Eh, what are ya gonna do? Sometimes you have to dig through a lot of dirt and stream to find the nuggets of gold…

  5. Dr Kaco responds:

    @springheeledjack – yes indeed just like Mike Rowe moving to CNN from Discovery. WE shall see =p
