Whether it's exploring pitch-black caverns to unmask the identity of the legendary Bell Witch, diving into Lake Champlain in search of America's version of the Loch Ness Monster, or trekking deep into the wilderness in pursuit of recent sightings of Bigfoot, the team has the truth in their sights. Working with experts and recent eyewitnesses and deploying an array of high-tech equipment, they'll shed new light on cases that have confounded and frightened us for generations. In the season opener, "Curse of the Old West Outlaw," Josh Gates' team heads West to investigate America's most haunted town.

Frequent attacks and new sightings of the infamous Beast of Bray Road have left locals crippled with fear for three decades. And throughout the new season, Jessica and Phil continue to tackle the strangest mysteries and legends from around the country. Whether it's exploring the waters surrounding "UFO Island" just off the coast of California, chasing the legend of a seven foot tall humanoid creature in the eerily-named Ape Canyon, or ghost hunting on an abandoned canal rumored to be haunted by soldiers slaughtered in the Civil War, the EXPEDITION X team has the truth in its sights.

From venturing into the unforgiving Appalachian wilderness to investigate the truth behind horrifying sightings of feral people, to unearthing clues to a flying beast lurking in the shadows of southern Iowa, Phil and Jessica search far and wide for the truth. In one of their most daring cases yet, Josh sends Phil and Jessica to Thailand in search of the cult behind terrifying warnings of global catastrophes and natural disasters. The risky search for answers intensifies as they gain access to the secretive sect's inner circle and even visit a secret compound deep in the mountains. The season culminates with an epic two-part special at Fort Morgan in Alabama where Phil and Jessica gain exclusive access to a decommissioned Civil War military fort - rumored to be haunted.
