Expedition Unknown Kicks Off with a New Discovery About D-Day
In an epic, two-hour season premiere, Josh Gates travels to the D-Day battlefields and the beaches of Normandy where he joins investigators making history-changing discoveries about the Longest Day.
This season Josh will face his most daring expeditions yet, from searching for the only large U.S. commercial airliner to vanish off the face of the earth to a quest across Africa to unearth the many missing links between modern man and our earliest ancestors.
Josh will begin this season in Normandy, exploring D-Day alongside military historians using cutting edge technology to uncover shocking secrets about the invasion. Included in his discovery is a never-before-discovered complex of Nazi bunkers as well as an unexploded bomb frozen in time in the waters off Normandy’s coast. Josh’s in-depth investigation reveals forgotten mysteries surrounding the most important battle in modern history.
Throughout the season, Gates will undertake numerous thrilling global adventures including a trek across the U.K. in the footsteps of a Celtic warrior queen and a journey to the islands of the Seychelles to decipher a cryptic code that may lead to lost pirate treasure. Finally, in a two-part season finale, Josh will sail into the enigma that is the Bermuda Triangle on a dangerous voyage of discovery.
