Mountain Monsters Returns for Season 6 in Hopes of Finding Bigfoot

Thanks to a majority of sightings being reported in Northern California and the Pacific Northwest, most cryptids enthusiasts have assumed that the legendary Bigfoot calls this part of the world home, but the team at Mountain Monsters has their own ideas about the creature's environment, with Season 6 seeing them launch an investigation into reported sightings of the beast. This won't be the only monster the team is hoping to confirm the existence of, as the new season is set to collide with all manner of beasts in the lesser-explored parts of the country. Mountain Monsters premieres on the Travel Channel and discovery+ on January 2, 2022.

Per press release, "It's Bigfoot or bust for the Appalachian Investigations of Mysterious Sightings team (AIMS) as they head back to the Tygart Valley in West Virginia. The surviving members, Willy McQuillian, Jeff Headlee, Joseph 'Huckleberry'' Lott, Jacob 'Buck' Lowe, and William 'Wild Bill' Neff, are on a mission to go after a massive Sasquatch that they know roams these hidden hills. Season 6 of the cult-classic series, Mountain Monsters, returns with 10 new one-hour episodes beginning on Sunday, January 2, 2022 on Travel Channel at 10 p.m. ET and begins streaming the same day on discovery+.

"Before setting off, the AIMS team is given an old shoeshine box that belonged to their beloved late team leader, Trapper. While they are unsure of what the contents of the box mean, they know there must be more to it after finding an old picture of Trapper sitting next to a Tygart Valley sign. So, they hit the road equipped with the box and determination to catch Bigfoot.

"The AIMS team soon discover that they are in a cryptozoic creature hotspot unlike any other. As they chase the numerous monsters of the Tygart Valley and build breathtaking traps, they continue to learn that Trapper may have been onto this secret all along, and the key to the entire adventure may be within their reach. Welcome to the biggest, baddest, and craziest season of Mountain Monsters yet."
