Animal Planet isn’t giving up on finding the elusive beast just yet, as the network has teamed up with Ping Pong Productions once again for a second season of Finding Bigfoot.

The recently completed first season ranked among the network’s top three series and delivered 1.2M P2+ viewers, according to Animal Planet. Thus, the network has ordered 10 more episodes, scheduled for early 2012. In season two, the Bigfoot Field Research Organization will trek to locales throughout the U.S., including Utah, New Mexico, Indiana, Pennsylvania and upstate New York, to explore reported sightings. 

Before the premiere of the second season and in time for Halloween, the two-hour Finding Bigfoot special, The Squatchiest Place on Earth, will see the Bigfoot Field Research Organization investigators journey to the location where the infamous Patterson-Gimlin footage was captured. The footage, taken more than 50 years ago in the forests of Northern California,  has been a focal point of the Bigfoot debate.
