Discovery Channel is prepping a four-part special event that explores the mysteries of the spirit world and the afterlife.

In Expedition Unknown: Search for the Afterlife, host Josh Gates (pictured) goes looking for answers to the eternal question: what happens after we die?

Gates visits haunted places, speaks with a medium, tries ancient medicines and visits archaeological sites.

In the first episodes, he travels to the ancient city of Hierapolis in Turkey, where, according to ancient Roman accounts, every animal that stepped into a cave thought to be a portal to the underworld died mysteriously.

Expedition Unknown is produced for Discovery Channel by Ping Pong Productions. Executive producers for Ping Pong are Brad Kuhlman, Casey Brumels and Josh Gates, with Brea Tisdale and Matthew Meltzer co-executive producing. EPs for Discovery are Daniel A. Schwartz and Bill Howard, with Cameron Doyle serving as coordinating producer.

Expedition Unknown: Search for the Afterlife premieres Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery Channel, followed by a discussion with Gates in Expedition Unknown: After the Search at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
