JOSH GATES RETURNS TO TRAVEL CHANNEL TO SHOWCASE THE MOST STORIED PLACES ON EARTH IN A NEW SEASON OF "LEGENDARY LOCATIONS"

Premieres Tuesday, April 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT

NEW YORK (March 1, 2019) - Adventurer and explorer Josh Gates ("Expedition Unknown") pursues the unexpected stories behind fabled places around the globe in the return of Travel Channel's "Legendary Locations," premiering Tuesday, April 2 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. With 13 all-new episodes - expanded into an hour-long format for the show's second season - Gates showcases the surprising stories behind locations brimming with mythic histories, surprising backstories and newly uncovered secrets. With the help of historians and local experts, he illuminates new findings from the places you thought you knew and sheds light on those you never knew existed.

"As I continue my travels and adventures, it never ceases to amaze me how many incredible and surprising stories are tucked away in every corner of the globe," said Gates. "Whether it's the myth of underground tunnels beneath the city of Portland, Oregon, or Henry Ford's lost city in the Amazon rainforest, I'm excited to bring our viewers around the world to explore these truly legendary locations."

In the season premiere, Josh Gates explores both the natural - and the supernatural. He examines an ancient cathedral made entirely of salt, buried 20 stories beneath the streets of Wieliczka, Poland, and a mysterious symbol in Sicily believed to be written by a nun under demonic possession. Additional stories include a haunted asylum in upstate New York, the intriguing tale of Brazil's booming coffee industry and more.
