Wow. Been a while! Probably the longest time in the 14 years this site has been running without a new post. Sorry about that, fellow fans. Let's get right down to business:
New "Expedition Unknown" episodes are around the corner! According to Josh's official site, he says "New adventures are airing Spring and Summer in 2022. In addition to watching the series on Discovery, viewers can explore new episodes each week on Discovery+. " Since Spring starts a few days from now and ends by late June, that gives us a very liberal timeline of when we hopefully get an air date announcement.
New episodes that air on TV get uploaded typically early the following day on the Discovery+ app. This special site from Discovery is a great guide to "Expedition Unknown" episodes and will likely have official info when new episodes are coming. My best advice for the actual air date will be to follow Josh on social media - he is most active on Twitter at @joshuagates and Instagram @gatesygram
Here are the 2022 dates where Josh Gates appearances are taking place - availability ranges from general seating and VIP packages - links to venue information and tickets:
That's about it, for important news right now. Will try to get back to posting more regularly, since I can see on my end that site traffic is still pretty consistent. Okay, bye for now! -Amanda
Hi everyone! Been seeing Q's on when new "Expedition Unknown" episodes continue. It looks like the pandemic has slowed production down, but according to Josh's September 13th Instagram post they look to be back on the road shooting more episodes. I would just treat it, until otherwise told, as a "mid-season" hiatus. A convenient reminder that you can also watch "Expedition" rereuns and "Josh Gates Tonight" upcoming new episodes and reruns anytime on Discovery+.
For now, great news! Josh Gates is on the road again! He will be doing multiple events for the remainder of 2021 and a good amount are listed so far for 2022. I compiled info on prices and VIP/meet and greet info below. For 2022, since those events are 7 months away, I did not list prices or VIP info yet. I do recommend clicking the link for the best seats and meet & greet options ahead of time. NOTE - each theater has vaccination or COVID test requirements.
New 2021 EXPEDITION UNKNOWN (EXU) episodes are mere days away, people! On Wednesday July 21st, Season 10 premieres with "Dillinger's Lost Loot" at 8PM Eastern/7 Central/9 Moutain/8 Pacific. There is also a lengthy EXU marathon from the morning through the evening.
This will likely be the pattern that new episodes should premiere on Wednesdays but there are several ways to confirm each week to be sure:
BIG ANNOUNCEMENT: The new season of EXPEDITION UNKNOWN premieres July 21st at 8PM EST! You can watch the new episodes, focusing on "lost civilizations, sunken treasures, missing loot, and so much more" on both Discovery Channel and the Discovery+ app!

Hi everyone! Sorry I didn't post about this sooner, but I am sure everyone already has heard the news. Josh Gates is doing a mini special based on the film trilogy Back to the Future! This was my first fandom ever as a little girl, so it is fun to see these worlds collide.
I do not know when it will air on TV, but it is available to stream NOW on Discovery Plus. I know there are folks upset that they feel they need to get an app to be able to watch Josh Gates' shows, but trust me - it's a really good app with lots of great content (again, not sponsored - I wish!)
Click THIS LINK to get a 7 day free trial and check this mini series out!

About this special, via the New York Post:
"Christopher Lloyd revisits a huge part of his past in the new discovery+ series “Expedition Unknown: Back to the Future,” hosted by Josh Gates. The four-part series, premiering Monday, March 15, follows Gates and Lloyd...as they search for the futuristic time-traveling DeLorean cars (there were seven in all) used in the iconic movie trilogy."
