U.S. network Animal Planet is bringing back its hit series Finding Bigfoot, this time sending the Bigfoot investigators beyond North America to Australia and Indonesia.

The 20-episode third season will be kicked off by a pre-show special on November 11 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, moderated by Animal Planet executive producer Keith Hoffman. The Bigfoot Field Research Organization will be brought together in an informal setting to discuss their investigations in greater detail, providing insights and tips not previously included in the show.

The series premiere will follow at 10 p.m. EST/PST, and sees the team looking at the Sasquatch phenomenon in Australia, known as “yowies,” and Indonesia, where it’s known as “orang-pendek.”

Other new locations for the team include Arizona and California. Finding Bigfoot is produced for Animal Planet by Ping Pong Productions. Keith Hoffman is the exec producer for Animal Planet, while Brad Kuhlman and Casey Brumels are also executive producers, and Chad Hammel is the co-executive producer for Ping Pong.
