DESTINATION AMERICA IGNITES FEAR ON THE FROZEN FRONTIER WITH "ALASKA MONSTERS" SEASON 2 AND THE WORLD PREMIERE OF "ALASKA HAUNTING"

(Silver Spring, Md.) - On Alaska's isolated tundra, a disembodied howl could be the wind, a wild animal or - if you're lucky - only your imagination. This September, Destination America embarks on a frozen journey to investigate Alaska's supernatural mysteries in the return of ALASKA MONSTERS and the world premiere of ALASKA HAUNTING. Chilling reports of supernatural activity and monster sightings have left generations of locals desperate for answers and shaking from more than just the frigid temperatures. Between the elusive Sasquatch and mysterious spirits, these series shine a light on the dark side of life on the last frontier, where miles of forest separate neighbors and no one can hear you scream. ALASKA MONSTERS season two premieres Saturday, September 19 at 10/9c, followed by the world premiere of ALASKA HAUNTING on Sunday, September 20 at 10/9c.

"Alaska residents routinely deal with threats like bears and blizzards, but there's something far more terrifying that's leaving tough Alaskans frozen in fear," said Marc Etkind, general manager of Destination America. "In ALASKA MONSTERS and ALASKA HAUNTING, Destination America is in the heart of the ice and isolation, exposing American myths and monsters that stalk our last frontier."

ALASKA MONSTERS, returning for its second season on Saturday, September 19 at 10/9c, follows a team of investigators called the Midnight Sons deep into the unforgiving Alaskan wilderness as they search for mysterious monsters. The eight-episode second season is a dedicated BIGFOOT EDITION, in which these expert trappers focus their efforts on capturing the king of covert creatures, Bigfoot. The native outdoorsmen employ thermal technology and modern tracking techniques in their quest to find evidence that Bigfoot calls Alaska home.

Following the season premiere of ALASKA MONSTERS is the world premiere of ALASKA HAUNTING on Sunday, September 20 at 10/9c, in which unnerving ghostly encounters deep in the Alaskan bush leave residents with nowhere to run and no neighbors to turn to for help. Spirits lurk in the shadows of Alaska's isolated cabins, tormenting families and leaving them no choice but to turn to paranormal investigators as their last hope.

The season premiere episodes are:

· ALASKA MONSTERS

Season 2 Premiere on Saturday, September 19 at 10/9c

The monster-hunting team heads to Zone 29 of the Alaska Triangle, near Coldfoot, where the dangerous Yeti known as the Siberian Giant was reportedly responsible for the notorious massacre of nine hikers. After meeting an ice fisherman who had an encounter with the Bigfoot, the Midnight Sons trek 40 miles from civilization to find out where this monster is living. While battling frostbite and the brutal terrain, the team devises a plan to lure the creature to them, using one of the team members as bait.

· ALASKA HAUNTING

World Premiere on Sunday, September 20 at 10/9c

Looking for a fresh start, the Cristallo family moves from California to the former gold-mining town of Salcha, Alaska. But when Lita and her daughter Bonnie break ground on their new dream home, they release a scary secret buried in the ice. After terrifying run-ins with a shadowy figure, the women realize they're sharing the cozy cabin with a cold spirit. A ghost-hunting team is called in to expel the menacing entity, but little do they know that a chilling discovery awaits them beneath the snow.

ALASKA MONSTERS is produced by American Chainsaws with Colt Straub, Duke Straub, Royal Malloy, and Jay Bluemke as executive producers. ALASKA HAUNTING is produced by Optomen Productions with Stephen McLaughlin as executive producer. For Destination America, Caroline Perez is executive producer of ALASKA MONSTERS, Sara Helman and Christine Shuler are executive producers of ALASKA HAUNTING, Marc Etkind is general manager, and Henry Schleiff is Group President.
