Finding Bigfoot Returns November 10

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on September 30th, 2013


Get ready for a new season of FINDING BIGFOOT starting on Nov 10. In the season opener, the team makes their first-ever trip to Arkansas, and specifically to BOGGY CREEK to explore the legend and modern sightings. I had the privilege of assisting in the investigation, so when you see the squatcher in the black hat, that’s me.

From press release:

For three seasons of FINDING BIGFOOT, Animal Planet’s third-best-performing series ever, the intrepid cast of investigators has visited 33 states and five countries and combed through hundreds of pieces of evidence on its quest to prove the existence of sasquatches — and its work is just getting started. Beginning on Sunday, November 10, at 10 PM (ET/PT), the quartet continues its search in 16 all-new episodes through March 2014, going back to the scenes of some of the most-promising excursions from past seasons and into new squatchy locations across North America.

Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland discover new, compelling evidence, which sparks a global excursion into China and Nepal to search for bigfoot’s distant cousins, the Chinese yeren and the yeti, better known as the “Abominable Snowman.” Working closely with foreign governments and local guides, the team puts its signature and unconventional bigfoot strategies to the test in unfamiliar territories, hoping to uncover the mysteries of these bi-pedal, hair-covered beasts that have captivated these countries and the world for decades.

Before jet setting around the world, Finding Bigfoot kicks off the new season with a special trip to Fouke, Arkansas, the scene of the infamous 1972 documentary “The Legend of Boggy Creek.” More than 40 years after the film’s debut, reports of the “Fouke Monster” still run rampant, and the cast takes to the swamps to prove that the film was more reality that documentary. This season, the team also follows up on previous promising leads in Florida, Texas and Alabama, and utilizes an all-new technique of rigging riverboats with thermal cameras for a journey down the Mississippi River. Topping it off, the bigfoot team splits up for a special episode and competes to find the most sasquatch evidence and to determine once and for all which state is the squatchiest: Oregon or Washington.

From Cliff Barackman:

Wake the kids, call the neighbors! The new season of Finding Bigfoot starts on November 10th! And the season opener is a doozy, to say the least. The Finding Bigfoot team goes one of our “bucket list” locations with a visit to Fouke, Arkansas, and specifically to Boggy Creek.


Any bigfooter of my generation is keenly aware of the movie, The Legend of Boggy Creek. We enlist the help of Lyle Blackburn, the single best authority of the movie, the community, and the bigfoot activity that continues to happen in the area to this day. Using footage from the movie itself, the episode will blend modern investigations with decades-old footage for a unique and interesting view of current activity in the area.Cliff Barackman

    Lyle is THE real deal!

    Someone wake me up when this garbage is over. It’s the Discovery Channel, not the Drag-It-Out-Until-Our-Eyeballs-Bleed-From-Mundane-Repetition Channel.

  4. mick responds:

    Given the fact that they’ve never found a bigfoot (and most probably never will) Animal Planet might want to change the name of this show to something that better fits what actually happens on it. “Looking for Bigfoot”, “Not Finding Bigfoot” and “The Matt Moneymaker Comedy Hour” would all be more honest titles.

  5. EastTexan responds:

    Wow! What a great way to start their new season. I’ll especially enjoy this episode after being in Fouke this past weekend. Enjoyed your tour and getting to talk with you, Lyle (you too, Craig).

  6. sasquatch responds:

    I vote for “NOT FINDING BIGFOOT”.
    I’ll still watch-it’s fun to see the pretty landscapes, trees and stuff.

  7. Jayross responds:

    Another season of smashing through the woods, yelling, banging on trees with a Manhattan film crew in tow…

    Success is sure to follow.
    (ratings that is…) 😉

  8. DWA responds:

    “the cast takes to the swamps to prove that the film was more reality that [sic] documentary….”


    Aren’t documentaries about reality?

    Oh good. More running all over the place in the hopes they’ll trip over something.

    Great TV. Probably why I don’t watch it.

  9. etheral responds:

    I have to admit, I enjoyed the show at first. But at this point every episode is almost a carbon copy of the last and it’s simply over done now. I’ll watch the Boggy Creek episode, but the rest I will most likely miss unless there’s nothing else to watch. 🙂

  10. Goodfoot responds:


    “More reality than documentary” has got to be the dumbest comment of the month, and October’s just begun. But unless we hear from them again this month, I’m pretty sure it’ll stand. The award, please…

  11. eyeofstrm responds:

    A paid skeptic and three bozo’s who believe every noise in the woods are Squatchy. The only part of the show worth while is the stories from the people they interview.
