Science Channel viewers will get a rare sneak peek at the all-new season of NASA’S UNEXPLAINED FILES on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 10 PM while the series returns for season three on Tuesday, February 23 at 10 PM.
Since the launch of the manned space program more than 50 years ago, cameras aboard NASA spacecraft have captured thousands of images that have been shared publicly to the delight of millions. Many show stars, views of Earth and other expected sights. However, hundreds of these pictures reveal imagery that leave scientists scratching their heads. NASA’S UNEXPLAINED FILES explores these mysteries and the latest evidence for life beyond Earth.
“Science Channel is the home to more space programming than any other network, from awe inspiring tours of the solar system to series like NASA’s Unexplained Files, revealing and exploring the many mysteries that space has to offer,” said Marc Etkind, General Manager, Science Channel.
NASA’S UNEXPLAINED FILES dives into the mysteries of some of NASA’s most curious missions to explore stories of engineering achievement and human endurance. Each episode offers first hand testimony from astronauts, NASA mission footage, plus beautifully rendered CGI to bring to life these voyages that reveal unexplained sightings that have dogged many of NASA’s most famous missions. The series also helps puts age-old UFO conspiracies to rest and celebrates the science that has kept us in space for over half a century.
Nowhere does the mystery of Bigfoot’s existence run deeper than in the back country of Appalachia where, over the last 10 years alone, the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS) have uncovered more than a dozen different clans of bigfoot that call the mountain region home.
Locals have their own names for these enormous ape-like creatures, but they’re all bigfoot in the end. AIMS travel to remote corners of the Appalachian wilderness to track and attempt to trap these mysterious creatures, proving they’re fact not folklore.
In all new episodes, Mountain Monsters picks up where it left off in AIMS’ search for bigfoot but this time with a whole new set of surprises.
Last season it was revealed that a mysterious rival group was trailing AIMS on the bigfoot chase. The premiere episode on January 23 will finally shed light on this group’s shady activities when they come closer than ever before to threatening AIMS’ mission.
After a cliffhanger ending last season, Trapper finally reveals the evidence he dug up in a supposed bigfoot burial ground. The revelation sends AIMS back to Kentucky in the January 30th episode to pursue a new lead.
By far the biggest shock to AIMS’ system will involve the health of one of their own. By January 30, the team may have changed forever but it won’t stop them from pursuing their goal of finding bigfoot.
From the network that delivered the first-ever live televised exorcism last fall, comes an all-new series this March that stretches the limits of paranormal investigation.
Destination America’s six-part series PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN, hosted by paranormal all-star Nick Groff and co-hosted by seasoned ghost hunter Katrina Weidman, follows the two as they confine themselves in America’s most terrifying places for an unprecedented 72 hours straight.
Living at haunted locations, many of which have never before been seen on television, some being investigated for the first time ever, Groff and Weidman believe that the longer they stay, the more the spirits will communicate with them and the more information they can gather about the unknown. From the creepy Kreischer Mansion on Staten Island to the foreboding Franklin Castle in Cleveland, PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN is set to premiere on Friday, March 4 at 10/9c exclusively on Destination America.
“As valued fixtures of the paranormal community, Nick and Katrina have years of thrilling investigation under their belts and join the Destination America family with huge support from their fans,” said Jane Latman, general manager of Destination America. “Overnight explorations are a staple of ghost hunting, but PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN supersizes the suspense in a round-the-clock, multi-day investigation that has never been conducted before on a paranormal TV series.”
“Living with the dead was a whole new experience for me and Katrina, giving us the opportunity to document some incredibly enticing evidence about the afterlife that we can’t wait to reveal to PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN’s viewers,” said host and executive producer Nick Groff.
For Destination America, Groff previously executive produced GHOST STALKERS in 2014 and appeared in EXORCISM: LIVE! this past Halloween to share his experience investigating the original Exorcist house. PARANORMAL LOCKDOWN will mark Groff’s debut as host of a Destination America original series.

About Katrina Weidman
Katrina Weidman is paranormal researcher and investigator, host, producer, and lecturer. She’s best known for her role on A&E’s hit series Paranormal State, in which she worked on hundreds of cases of unexplained supernatural phenomena and interviewed thousands of witnesses with the world-renowned Paranormal Research Society (PRS) from 2006-2011.
A graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, Weidman has been working professionally as a paranormal researcher and investigator since 2006, but her passion for the supernatural began when she was a child living in historic Bucks County, Penn., where many locations are said to be haunted. Weidman also hosted Chiller’s Real Fear: The Truth Behind the Movies, following Weidman and her team as they travel the country looking for the real-life stories that inspired some of the world’s most iconic horror films.
The natural world is full of discoveries to be made and truths to be uncovered. However, there is one legendary animal mystery that sparks passion unlike any other: the existence of Bigfoot. Animal Planet’s intrepid FINDING BIGFOOT team travels to the corners of the globe in hopes to, once and for all, prove that the elusive bigfoot (aka sasquatch) is out there.
The new season of FINDING BIGFOOT premieres Sunday, January 3, from 9-11 PM (ET/PT), as Animal Planet’s curious crypto-zoological team sets foot in new locations with modern technologies to progress the search.
And in the two-hour premiere, Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman and field biologist Ranae Holland split up to determine the better sasquatch habitat: the American or Canadian wilderness. While the countries share a border, they boast different landscapes, so Cliff and Matt investigate the Canadian bush while Bobo and Ranae scour their home turf for evidence.
This season, the team investigates the following states:
Maine, Sunday, January 10, at 10 PM:
A cornucopia of bigfoot artifacts exists in the Pine Tree State, so the team takes its first trip to Maine and heads deep into the woods to learn more within this east-coast squatching haven.
New Hampshire, Sunday, January 17, at 10 PM:
In picturesque Mount Washington, concerned resort owners reach out to the team with a slew of reported sasquatch sightings gathered throughout many years.
Georgia, Sunday, January 24, at 10 PM:
Military bases are some of the country’s most protected and secluded areas. In a top-secret sasquatch investigation, the team goes into full stealth mode and utilize tips from military members to investigate forests just off base.
Oregon, Sunday, January 31, at 10 PM:
The team has been to Cliff’s home state before, but they never have explored beyond Cliff’s usual spots. The team takes a helicopter trip deep into the Oregon wilderness to one of the most remote locations in the show’s history. And, for the first time, the team employs drones with infrared cameras.
