A year after devastating wildfires forced the team to evacuate the Olympic Peninsula, just as they unearthed fascinating new evidence, the team return to Washington State in season three of 'Expedition Bigfoot'.

Acclaimed primatologist Dr. Mireya Mayor and Bigfoot experts Bryce Johnson, Ronny LeBlanc and Russell Acord resume their investigation in 16 all-new episodes beginning on March 20 on Travel Channel in the US and streaming on Discovery+.

The new season kicks off with a special "New Evidence" pre-show, looking back at their journey and including a surprising conversation with renowned primatologist Dr. Jane Goodall and Dr. Mayor and then launches into the season premiere. The season ends with a post-season specials that will recap all the evidence collected.

Knowing of her interest in cryptid animals, especially hominids, Dr. Mireya Mayor, the team's resident scientist, contacted her long-time friend and colleague, Dr. Goodall, to discuss her beliefs and personal investigations.

During the unprecedented on-camera interview, Goodall revealed that she has been told many unexplained stories of human-like primates from native people living in the jungles of South America and does not discount them. "Just about every country had Bigfoot sightings," said Goodall. "And I met people that have said they have seen something like Bigfoot or Sasquatch."

In fact, Dr Goodall believes these could be highly intelligent creatures, which would explain why no remains have been found to date, and embraces the team continuing the search.

"I approach this expedition with a healthy level of skepticism and an open mind examining all our evidence through the lens of science," said Mayor. "But science cannot explore closed doors and, like Jane, I believe that it's not about proving or disproving, it's about maintaining the curiosity and wonder of exploration that is necessary to make new discoveries. Having a giant in primatology, like Jane, say she believes they could exist and express support for our research only re-emphasizes the importance of this and invigorates our investigation," said Mayor.

Encouraged by a notable discovery from the previous expedition, the team devises a new plan to rouse a Bigfoot from hiding and prove these elusive creatures are not a myth but a reality. In the season premiere, "Strange Returns," the team returns to the Olympic Peninsula with a new plan to draw out Bigfoot by releasing primate pheromones via a specially modified drone. But after LeBlanc and Mayor see something watching them from above, and Accord is blindsided by a nighttime visitor, it becomes clear โ€“ the hunters are now the hunted.

Bryce Johnson
Acclaimed actor/producer as well as creator and host of the popular podcast 'Bigfoot Collectors Club', Bryce has been obsessed with Bigfoot ever since he was a young boy. Although acting is his profession, researching the strange and unexplained, along with crypto-zoological creatures, are his passion. Those pursuits converged in 2013, when Bryce starred in the critically lauded movie 'Willow Creek', a found-footage horror film about a quest to find evidence of Bigfoot. While researching his role, Bryce met Robert "Bob" Gimlin, the man who, along with Roger Patterson, captured the legendary footage of Bigfoot in 1967. That meeting, and their subsequent friendship, cemented Bryce's commitment to pursuing the truth about the existence of Bigfoot. He can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
