Time for New Adventures with Josh Gates

Be ready to travel! Adventurer and explorer Josh Gates returns to Travel Channel in an all-new season of the top-rated series, “Expedition Unknown,” on Wednesday, December 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Viewers are anxious to see where Gate’s adventures and destinations around the world lead him this season! Josh Gates will explore twelve all new expeditions including:

  • the history of the mighty Vikings
  • the mystery of Stonehenge
  • the lost tombs of the Mayan Snake Kings
  • the search for a ship trapped in the dunes of Australia
  • a quest for the true identity of Nefertiti
  • and the hunt for 12 buried treasure boxes hidden right here in America.

“This season of ‘Expedition Unknown’ is all about icons,” said Gates. “From discovering the true origins of Stonehenge to exploring beneath the enigmatic pyramids of the Mayan empire, we’re making incredible discoveries at the world’s most impressive landmarks. But, we’re also tackling iconic items such as the lost treasure of America’s most notorious pirate and the stolen ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz. Plus, we’re hot on the trail of history’s most infamous characters, from Wild West bandit Butch Cassidy to high-ranking Nazis in South America and the sunken tomb of Cleopatra. These are our biggest adventures yet, and I can’t wait to take our fans with us on the journey.”

This season begins with a two-part episode focused on the mysterious and powerful Vikings. Gates will venture into Viking territory in an effort to unlock answers to their most enduring secrets.

“How did they attain and sustain their power? Why did the population in Greenland just vanish? How far did they really travel?”

Many believe the Vikings’ lost settlement, “Vinland,” established in 1000 AD, is in Canada, but will the new evidence uncovered by Gates prove that it’s actually here in America?

Catch a special screening of the first half of the two-part premiere beginning Wednesday, December 13 on TravelChannel.com, VOD, TV Everywhere and additional digital platforms.
