The Appalachian Investigations of Mysterious Sightings team (known to members and fans as the AIMS team) return once again to honor the legacy of John “Trapper” Tice and hunt down a variety of cryptid creatures in the infamous Tygart Valley in West Virginia.
Willy McQuillian, Jeff “Jeffro”Headlee, Joseph “Huckleberry” Lott, Jacob “Buck” Lowe, and William “Wild Bill” Neff are on hand for Season Six, which will consist of 10 new one-hour episodes beginning on Sunday, January 2 on Travel Channel at 10 pm ET/PT. Each episode will also be available to stream a bit earlier the same day on discovery+.
This season’s adventure begins “…when the AIMS team are given an old shoeshine box that belonged to their beloved late team leader, Trapper. While they are unsure of what the contents of the box mean, they know there must be more to it after finding an old picture of Trapper sitting next to a Tygart Valley sign. So, they hit the road equipped with the box and determination to catch Bigfoot.”
