SCI FI has renewed its investigative reality hit Destination Truth for
a second season. The second season of Destination Truth is slated to
premiere in 2008 with six exciting new episodes.
Mark Stern, SCI FI Channel’s Executive Vice President of Original Programming, made the announcement. Stern said "Destination Truth with Josh Gates proved to be a great addition to our Wednesday night lineup and the perfect companion piece for Ghost Hunters."
In the second season of Destination Truth, adventurer and truth-seeker Josh Gates will once again take viewers off the map in his search for answers to some the world’s most notorious unexplained mysteries. The SCI FI Channel promises that the show will feature even more exotic locales, stunning finds and fascinating eyewitness accounts as Josh brings his humor to brand new investigations.
Destination Truth was a huge ratings hit for SCI FI, bringing in over 1 million new viewers over its 6-week run last summer. The series premiere in June 2007 was the highest-rated premiere for an alternative reality series on SCI FI since the debut of Ghost Hunters in 2004.
