Adventurer and truth-seeker Josh Gates returns to take viewers off the map in search of answers to some of the world’s most notorious unexplained mysteries. DESTINATION TRUTH returns for a second season, airing Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET beginning January 6, exclusively in Canada on SPACE.

DESTINATION TRUTH is a weekly adventure series that invites viewers to come along on one man’s search for the truth while he investigates paranormal mysteries across the globe. Every week, Gates and his small crew visit a different international destination alleged to be the home of an infamous supernatural or mysterious creature.

Gates talks to witnesses and experts and immerses himself in the local culture as he searches for evidence to either prove or debunk these stories.

Returning for 13 all-new episodes, the second season continues to feature more exotic locales like Tanzania, Cambodia, and Brazil; stunning finds; and fascinating eyewitness accounts as Gates brings his humour to brand new investigations. The first episode follows Gates and his team to the mountains of Nepal to uncover the truth behind the infamous stories of the Yeti. While there he makes the remarkable discovery of what could be three separate footprints left by these elusive creature.

The six-episode first season of DESTINATION TRUTH reached over one million Canadians on SPACE in Fall 2007.*
