EXPLORER JOSH GATES HUNTS FOR ANSWERS TO FASCINATING LEGENDS IN UPCOMING SEASON OF 'EXPEDITION UNKNOWN'

Additional New Episodes Coming Wednesday, November 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK (October 14, 2016) - Travel Channel explorer and adventurer Josh Gates is on an endless quest to find the truth behind the world's captivating and iconic unsolved legends. So it's no surprise that the new episodes of his hit series "Expedition Unknown," hitting the air as of Wednesday, November 2 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT, will take on such lingering questions as: Who was D.B. Cooper and what became of him? Is Captain Kidd's lost treasure still out there waiting to be found? Where is Attila the Hun's tomb? From excavating ruins and jumping out of planes to diving for treasure in the deep seas, Gates goes on 16 thrilling expeditions and they are some of his biggest adventures yet.

"Our new expeditions are wild," says Gates, who also serves as an executive producer of the series. "These stories are taking us to the ends of the earth, from the frosted hinterlands of Siberia to the deserts of Namibia. We're investigating incredible, addictive legends and taking epic journeys. We're chasing pirate treasure, criminal masterminds, vanished empires and priceless relics. Get ready for dynamite explosions, perilous underwater dives and a free fall at terminal velocity as I jump out of a plane for the first time. In short: this season is a full-on, crazy adventure."

In the November 2 episode, Gates heads to Montana - Gold Rush territory - to search for the missing fortune of notorious Old West sheriff, Henry Plummer. Traveling from Virginia City to Bannack and into the Montana hills, Gates investigates the legend behind the lost loot - meeting with local experts and using the latest technology to explore hidden cave systems and blast open an unexplored, century-old sealed mine in hopes of striking gold.

Upcoming expeditions this season include an exploration into the collapse of Greece's Minoan civilization; a search for World War II-era gold and diamond treasures in Germany and Corsica; trails that could lead to the location of the Ark of the Covenant in Israel and Africa; and an investigation into the possible re-emergence of Australia's extinct Tasmanian tiger.
