Image 1 / 3

Adventurer and explorer Josh Gates returns in an all-new season of the top-rated series, “Expedition Unknown.” Gates’ insatiable curiosity and appetite for adventure leads him to destinations around the world, uncovering the truth behind more illustrious legends and fascinating lore. With access to the latest research and scientific technology, Gates tackles new expeditions, including 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; the hunt for 12 buried treasure boxes hidden right here in America and more.

"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."
