Finding Bigfoot Season 2 - Official Announcement

Straight from Animal Planet's media-mouth comes the official announcement of the debut of season 2 of Finding Bigfoot.  Ironically, they announced the beginning of the series on the very same day that we finished filming the last of the episodes.  Funny how thing work out sometimes.

Having been on the road filming the series for the last four months has been a grueling, yet infinitely rewarding experience.  And, yes, we found bigfoots and collected data along the way.  

The series will be an exciting and informative trip to the woods in some of the 'squatchiest places on the continent.  There are new films and photographs investigated, new sounds recorded, interviews with witnesses who have never told their story publicly, and much more.  It has been quite a trip, to say the very least.  

The cast of Finding Bigfoot at an undisclosed location:
Matt Moneymaker, Cliff Barackman, Bobo, and Ranae Holland.

After each episode premieres, I will continue my post-episode commentaries, as well as my video interview debriefs with my trusty companion, Craig Flipy.  (Yes, I know I've been lagging on part two of Afterbirth of a Legend, but I'm pretty busy with all this filming and stuff...  I haven't forgotten, though.)

Here's the article.  Thanks for watching.

FINDING BIGFOOT Returns on January 1, 2012
Second Season of Successful Sleuthing Series Gives Audience New But Disputable Proof of a Baby Bigfoot

(November 30, 2011) — For centuries, eyewitness accounts and colorful stories have fueled rumor that large, furry, human-like animals have roamed the forests in North America and other continents. These legendary creatures have come to be known as bigfoot or sasquatch. The folklore around Bigfoot has many doubters and many true believers, and passionate groups like the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO)have formed to investigate stories, analyze evidence and strengthen their hypotheses of these elusive beings.

Over the course of 10 hour-long episodes, Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot returns for a brand-new season on Sunday, January 1, 2012, at 10 PM (ET/PT) for further expeditions to investigate reports of the mysterious Bigfoot. From small towns in the South to remote areas of the mountain West and dense forest of the Northeast and into Canada, four passionate, driven researchers and adventurers embark on one single-minded mission — to find this beast.

BFRO members Matt Moneymaker and James "Bobo" Fay, professional educator Cliff Barackman and skeptical biologist Ranae Holland engage in the ultimate quest in search of proof that Bigfoot really does exist — and that he or she is alive and abundant in North America. By examining photos and videos of the creature, speaking to local witnesses, using new technology and luring the mysterious beast with the team's "squatch" calls, the group uncovers startling potential evidence of the legendary and highly intelligent enigma that has eluded capture for centuries and fascinated man for just as long.
