Syfy orders a 5th globe-trotting season of Destination Truth

Josh Gates and his Destination Truth team will be back for a fifth season in early 2012, spanning the globe to investigate the unexplained in Transylvania, Guatemala, Vietnam and Kazakhstan—plus making a return visit to the site of their most terrifying investigation.

Here's Syfy's official press release:


NEW YORK -- May 19, 2011 -- Following an incredible season of expeditions, including a voyage to Antarctica and a live episode in Ireland, world traveler Josh Gates will once again journey to the farthest corners of the earth to bring viewers all-new adventures on Syfy's Destination Truth. Season five of the globetrotting investigative reality series has commenced production on seven episodes, slated to premiere on Syfy in early 2012.

In season five, Josh and team will lead viewers into a remote Transylvanian village on a hunt for vampires, explore the reportedly haunted Mayan ruins of Tikal in Guatemala, and descend into one of the world's biggest caves in the jungles of Vietnam to search for phantoms. They'll also journey to Kazakhstan (a Destination Truth first). At the overwhelming request of fans, the team will also return to Romania for a return visit to a haunted forest, the site of their most terrifying investigation to date.

Destination Truth is Executive Produced by Brad Kuhlman for Ping Pong Productions (1000 Places to See Before You Die, Celebrity Rehab, FM Nation). Josh Gates and Erin Ryder serve as co-executive producers.
