Finding Bigfoot is returning to Animal Planet in November, and Matt Moneymaker and team will be taking their searches beyond North America this time around.

Finally, what Finding Bigfoot fans have been waiting for patiently: All-new episodes on Animal Planet, beginning in November.

This season, the Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BRFO) president Matt Moneymaker will again lead his team of Sasquatch hunters through investigations in an attempt to prove the existence of the elusive—although, to many, nonexistent—creature. This time, however, the little band of researchers will be expanding their parameters beyond the limits of North America.

Moneymaker and his BRFO associates James "Bobo" Fay and Cliff Barackman, along with scientist Ranae Holland will investigate the Sasquatch phenomenon known as "yowies" in Australia and the "orang-pendek" of Indonesia. The team will closely examine photographic and video evidence, to ascertain if there are real signs of the creatures, and will speak with the locals in the areas to discover any eyewitness accounts that may shed light on their investigations.

“I don't think people realize how many witnesses there are,” says Moneymaker. “Finding Bigfoot shows what it's like actually going out in the woods. If you make the sounds they make, sometimes they actually come around. Sasquatches are in a lot of different places, and they exist.”

New technology will be implemented this season, although fans can be sure that Moneymaker and team will not abandon their signature calls, howls and tree knockings. According to Animal Planet, “the group uncovers startling evidence of the mysterious and highly intelligent enigma that has eluded capture for centuries and fascinated man for just as long.”

In addition to their far away travels, the team will also study evidence closer to home this season, in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, Oklahoma, Texas, Vermont and Washington.

Will the team break through the mystery of Bigfoot this season?

Stay tuned for November 11, when the new season of Finding Bigfoot premieres on Animal Planet at 10 p.m. E/P.
