This series kicks off its Discovery debut with a two-part premiere – Josh Gates and his team join noted archaeologist Dr. Richard Hansen on an adventurous quest to the lost-city of El Mirador deep in the Guatemalan rainforest. Their mission: to find the hidden tombs of the mysterious Maya Snake Kings. Archaeologists have discovered that the sprawling ruins of this ancient mega-city are larger than Los Angeles and contain what might be the largest pyramid in the Americas. Josh explores overgrown temples, plaster-paved roads, and evidence of advanced engineering and art. Using advanced laser scanners and remote sensing technology, Josh and his team reveal the secrets of why this incredible civilization suddenly and completely vanished. Their search for the tombs of the elusive Snake Kings leads to a thrilling and dangerous adventure, and culminates in what may be the most significant discovery in ‘Expedition Unknown’ history.

“Expedition Unknown: After the Hunt,” will premiere at 11 PM ET/PT, immediately following both episodes. The after-specials will expand on Gates’ exciting journey as he and his team dig deeper into their astounding discoveries, further analyze key evidence, and reveal never-before-seen footage from the expedition.

Josh’s unique, deep-rooted passion for off-the-grid adventure takes him to the farthest corners of the world. Whether it’s a fabled shipwreck that might be buried on land in the dunes of Australia, lost Nazi secrets in South America, or the buried treasure of America’s pirate king, ‘Expedition Unknown’ takes on its biggest adventures yet and brings audiences along for the ride.

    Why does no one bring up the fact that Josh Gates tries to trick people into thinking he is an Archeologist by stating he has a Degree in Archeology in the intro’s on his shows? Isn’t a Degree in Archeology the same as having a degree in Music or Art? A Degree in Archeology only proves you know how to pound sand. Josh Gates is a fake and con-man.
