(Los Angeles) – Ardent explorer and adventurer, Josh Gates has traveled to the ends of the earth investigating the greatest legends in history. Now, he’s back with his most daring adventures yet. From following in the footsteps of the real Indiana Jones to learn the truth behind the fabled Crystal Skull of Doom, to diving the Great Lakes in search of the Holy Grail of lost American shipwrecks, The Griffon, Josh takes viewers on exhilarating expeditions around the world. Armed with his quick wit, and trademark fearlessness along with cutting-edge technology, Gates is tackling new mysteries, new destinations, and making new discoveries in a pulse-pounding, new season of EXPEDITION UNKNOWN, premiering Wednesday, April 10th at 9PM ET/PT on Discovery Channel. In addition, Discovery will go live from Egypt with ‘EXPEDITION UNKNOWN: EGYPT LIVE,’ a special 2-hour event airing “Live to Both Coasts” on Sunday, April 7, at 9PM ET / 6PM PT on Discovery and simulcasting on Travel Channel and Science Channel and will take viewers through a network of underground tombs and open a sealed, ancient sarcophagus for the very first time.
Josh’s enthusiasm for off-the-grid adventure is leading him to explore even more historic mysteries and archaeological puzzles. This season, Josh begins his journey in Germany, in search of an elusive Nazi fortune – hidden with a code allegedly created by Hitler’s private secretary and embedded into a piece of sheet music. After World War II, the looted treasure vanished without a trace… until now.
Josh will dive into the frigid waters of South America’s Lake Titicaca on the hunt for the Atlantis of the Andes. And in France, he’ll scour the countryside to crack a devious puzzle that leads to a golden statue. Plus, Josh embarks on a quest for some of the most important relics in history… The Dead Sea Scrolls. This season of EXPEDITION UNKNOWN is filled with heart-pounding adventures that will leave viewers gripping the edge of their seats.
