The Expedition Bigfoot team returns to the Olympic Peninsula to take care of some unfinished business in season three, debuting on the Travel Channel and discovery+ on March 20.
Dr. Mireya Mayor, Bryce Johnson, Ronny LeBlanc and Russell Acord all return to Washington State in Season 3 after devastating wildfires cut last season’s expedition short, right when they were on the verge of some major breakthroughs in regards to Sasquatch.
The new season begins with a “New Evidence” pre-show (at 9:00 pm ET) that features a conversation with world-renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall who reveals that she has been told many stories about humanoid ape creatures in her travels, and says that “Just about every country had Bigfoot sightings. And I met people that have said they have seen something like Bigfoot or Sasquatch.”
Mayor originally joined the team “…with a healthy level of skepticism and an open mind examining all our evidence through the lens of science. But science cannot explore closed doors and, like Jane, I believe that it’s not about proving or disproving, it’s about maintaining the curiosity and wonder of exploration that is necessary to make new discoveries. Having a giant in primatology, like Jane, say she believes they could exist and express support for our research only re-emphasizes the importance of this and invigorates our investigation.”
Encouraged by a notable discovery from the previous expedition, the team devises a new plan to rouse a Bigfoot from hiding and prove these elusive creatures are not a myth but a reality.
The new season begins with the episode “Strange Returns” that sees the team experimenting with primate pheromones delivered via drone which results in some surprising and terrifying, close encounters for the team members. The entire season consists of 16 one-hour episodes including the pre- and post-season specials that recap all the evidence collected.
All episodes will stream earlier on discovery+ on the day and date of their Travel Channel debut, just in case you can’t wait to watch the show.
