Premieres Sunday, October 7 at 10pm ET/PT on Discovery Channel
Explorer and host Josh Gates takes us beyond the grave in Discovery’s four-part special event EXPEDITION UNKNOWN: SEARCH FOR THE AFTERLIFE. Gates journeys across the globe to investigate into the spirit world and answer mankind’s greatest unsolved mystery – where do we go when we die? From a ghost hunt at one of the most haunted places on earth to getting a firsthand glimpse of the afterlife with ancient medicine, Josh will put it all on the line for a glance of what’s beyond this life.
The search for the afterlife begins in the ancient city of Hierapolis, Turkey, where Gates explores a recent archeological discovery – a portal to the underworld. According to ancient Roman accounts, something within this legendary cave killed every animal that stepped inside, and it’s up to Josh to figure out why.
Then at 11 PM ET/PT, it’s never-before-seen footage and discussion with Josh Gates in EXPEDITION UNKNOWN: AFTER THE SEARCH. Josh takes us to Expedition Unknown Headquarters and leads a detailed discussion with his fearless crew and special guest experts to delve deeper into the subjects explored in EXPEDITION UNKNOWN: SEARCH FOR THE AFTERLIFE, as well as divulge never-before-seen footage and behind-the-scene moments of Gates and his team as they venture on these global explorations to better understand what lies beyond.
