Josh Gates to Return in Expedition Unknown on the Travel Channel

Has anyone been missing Destination Truth as much as I have? Good news! Despite the announcement from Syfy that the show is dead, it has risen from its own ashes, like the mysterious Phoenix of mythology and lore. Expedition Unknown is a new show coming to the Travel Channel, which from the description sounds a lot like the old show we’ve been missing. Here’s what Travel Channel has to say:

josh-gatesExpedition Unknown” (wt) 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. “Expedition Unknown” is greenlit for six one-hour episodes produced by Ping Pong Productions.

That’s all I’ve found so far (Josh, tweet me! need interview) Ping Pong also produced Destination Truth, so we’ve got that to look forward to. Let’s hope those six episodes lead to a lot more. Now if we could only do the network switching thing with a few other shows like Eureka, or even Firefly. Hey I can dream can’t I?
