Finding Bigfoot: Renewal for Animal Planet TV Series

finding bigfoot renewalAnimal Planet has announced they’ve renewed their documentary series Finding Bigfoot for a third season. That’s a little strange since many sources believe that the show is currently airing its fourth season. Apparently, Animal Planet has their own way of breaking up their episodes.

Here are the details:

THE SEARCH FOR BIGFOOT CONTINUES…

ANIMAL PLANET’S HIT SERIES “FINDING BIGFOOT” RENEWED FOR THIRD SEASON

— Season Two Premieres Delivered 1.2 Million P2+ Viewers —

(New York, New York) – After setting foot in 33 states and five countries, the FINDING BIGFOOT team is still feverishly on the hunt for the elusive Sasquatch. As the evidence continues to mount, investigators Cliff Barackman, James “Bobo” Fay, Ranae Holland and Matt Moneymaker are closer than ever to uncover the truth behind the hairy beast. And with FINDING BIGFOOT hunting down 1.2 M P2+ viewers this season and ranking among Animal Planet’s top three performing series of all time among P25-54 (653K), this hunt isn’t ending any time soon! Today, Animal Planet announces the third-season renewal of the hit series, rolling out with 12 brand new episodes later this fall.

FINDING BIGFOOT continues to find new believers with 41% more W25-54 watching than season one. And in 1Q13, FINDING BIGFOOT helped Animal Planet rank among the top 10 ad-supported cable nets in the 10 PM timeslot based on M25-54 delivery (excluding movies and sports).

FINDING BIGFOOT investigates compelling evidence that may prove the existence of this elusive creature, with a team uses unconventional methodologies and new technologies to lure the creature from behind the shadows to get physical video and/or audio evidence to prove that there is a community of these sasquatches among us! The intrepid cast of investigators – Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) president Matt Moneymaker, researchers James “Bobo” Fay and Cliff Barackman, and skeptical scientist Ranae Holland – has traveled across the U.S. and followed up on evidence and first-hand eyewitness accounts. Now, the cast continues its international searches and re-visits some of the “squatchier” locations to uncover startling evidence of the mysterious and highly intelligent enigma that has eluded capture for centuries and fascinated man for just as long.

FINDING BIGFOOT is produced for Animal Planet by Ping Pong Productions. Keith Hoffman is the executive producer and Hillary Tholen is associate producer for Animal Planet. Brad Kuhlman and Casey Brumels are executive producers and Chad Hammel is the co-executive producer for Ping Pong Productions.

I sure hope they don’t cancel Finding Bigfoot. It is one of the better shows that Animal Planet Has had. They need to run more reruns so we can at least watch them till they decide what they are going to do.

It’s truly sad that Finding Bigfoot may not have a more extensive fan base due, I think to the lack of sex and violence wrapped around a phony script !

It worries me that the Animal Planet/Finding Bigfoot website has not been updated in a long time; not even during the last “short” season of the show. Please, please, please keep Finding Bigfoot on the air! While this program may not appeal to everyone, it is like a great mystery each time Finding Bigfoot airs. It keeps you on your toes until the very last minute. A little mystery in the hectic lives we all live is always good! We love all of you guys!

scientists are frequently finding new species of animals, not previously discovered.
just because one has not been found, live ,dead or bones, only means that it has not been discovered /yet. Anything can & will happen @ anytime. Just as there are deviations in all living things, bigfoots are real!!!!!! Be ready, one or several will be located/found!!
Go finding bigfoot!!! JOSE Z (-:)

What in the world happened to Finding Bigfoot??? One of my absolute favorite shows of all time. We believers know it’s just a matter of time before you see a Sasquatch. And just take the show off the air with no notice or reason why to those of us who have been loyal followers?? This isn’t a good way to treat loyal AnimalPlanet viewers……%>:~{………bring this show back or at least tell us what happened.
