The Expedition Bigfoot team will make a surprise stop searching for the legendary sasquatch at Wondercon 2022!

For fans and enthusiasts of the famous series about the search of elusive cryptic Bigfoot, big news and updates are on the way. Of course, the series I am referencing is Travel Channel’s popular show Expedition Bigfoot. The series first premiered on December 8, 2019, and is currently on its third season.


The series focuses on a team of four professionals in their field of work. These four professionals are Bryce Johnson (expedition operations), Dr. Mireya Mayor (primatologist), Russell Acord (ex-military/survivalist), and Ronny LeBlanc (Bigfoot researcher).

Based on sightings, the series follows the four mentioned experts finding Bigfoot in the U.S Pacific Northwest. One of these notable locations is in the vast wilderness of central Oregon. Most notably, the team initially did research in the Olympic Peninsula. In the current third season of the series, the team returns to Washington State’s Olympic Peninsula. However, the team had to evacuate due to the region having disastrous wildfires.

Now, after a year, the Expedition Bigfoot team returns to the Olympic Peninsula and continues their search for the legendary sasquatch. To help promote the new season, the Expedition Bigfoot Team will make a short stop at this year’s Wondercon event.

Wondercon announced that The Expedition Bigfoot Team would make a special appearance at the event and have their own panel. The panel will be on April 2 at the Anaheim Convention Center during Wondercon. In attendance, Series stars Bryce Johnson, Dr. Mireya Mayor, Russell Acord, and Ronny LeBlanc. The panel will involve the cast talking to fans and giving them more information regarding Bigfoot. 


For fans in attendance, they will receive a sneak peek of new footage for the third season and an exclusive free giveaway. The panel will also include a shared video from renowned primatologist, Dr. Jane Goodall. The video featuring Dr. Goodall will be about her beliefs and personal investigations about Bigfoot. Additionally, there will be a special autograph session from the Expedition Bigfoot Team before the panel.

As an avid fan of Travel Channel and shows involving myths or legends, I am excited to see what is in store for season three. I haven’t watched all the episodes of Expedition Bigfoot, but I find it fascinating the evidence and reported sightings the team comes across.

I also find Expedition Bigfoot similar to other shows that I love watching on the Travel Channel. Shows such as Ghost Adventures and Expedition Unknown. But, after seeing clips of episodes in the third season, I am highly interested in catching up with the show and possibly attending their Wondercon panel.

About The Expedition Bigfoot Team

Bryce Johnson: Acclaimed actor/producer as well as creator and host of the popular podcast “Bigfoot Collectors Club,” Bryce has been obsessed with Bigfoot ever since he was a young boy. Although acting is his profession, researching the strange and unexplained, along with crypto-zoological creatures, are his passion. Those pursuits converged in 2013, when Bryce starred in the critically lauded movie “Willow Creek,” a found-footage horror film about a quest to find evidence of Bigfoot.

While researching his role, Bryce met Robert “Bob” Gimlin, the man who, along with Roger Patterson, captured the legendary footage of Bigfoot in 1967. That meeting, and their subsequent friendship, cemented Bryce’s commitment to pursuing the truth about the existence of Bigfoot. He can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Dr. Mireya Mayor: World-renowned primatologist, Fulbright Scholar and National Science Foundation Fellow, Mireya Mayor is not your typical scientist. For nearly two decades, she has been a wildlife correspondent reporting on wildlife and habitat loss while advocating for solutions to the alarming trends. Mireya has been hailed as a “female Indiana Jones” in the media and is an inspiration to young women interested in science and exploration. A two-time Emmy Award-nominated field correspondent for the National Geographic Channel.


Mireya reports to audiences worldwide on pertinent wildlife and habitat issues. Her explorations have led to several scientific discoveries, most notably her co-discovery of the world’s smallest primates, a brand-new species to science. The daughter of Cuban immigrants, Mireya grew up in Miami and earned her bachelor’s degree in anthropology and English at the University of Miami and went on to earn her Ph.D. from Stony Brook University. She recently joined Florida International University as director of the Exploration and Science Communication Initiative. Mireya is also the author of “Pink Boots and a Machete: My Journey from NFL Cheerleader to National Geographic Explorer.”

Russell Acord: Author of “Footprints of a Legend and “Bigfoot and the Tripwire,” event coordinator for the International Bigfoot Conference and skilled survivalist, retired Army Sergeant Russell Acord spends his free time traveling the Pacific Northwest looking for evidence of Bigfoot.

His interest in the subject began when he saw the famous Patterson/Gimlin film, and he has been actively searching for Bigfoot since the late ’70s. He can be found on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, as well as the Web.

Ronny LeBlanc: Ronny LeBlanc is a globally recognized figure in the world of paranormal, Bigfoot and UFOs. Ronny is an independent researcher, screenwriter and author of the critically acclaimed and best-selling book “Monsterland: Encounters With UFOs, Bigfoot and Orange Orbs,” which details the history and connection between the various phenomena, highlighting his experience and a research area called Monsterland in central Massachusetts. Ronny was the first person ever to cast a Bigfoot print in the Bay State from a trackway discovered by a couple in Leominster State Forest in the summer of 2010.

He is a regular speaker at the Exeter UFO Festival, New England UFO Conference and ParaFest and has been featured on nationally syndicated radio programs like “Coast to Coast AM with George Noory” and “Fade to Black With Jimmy Church.” He was recently highlighted for his research experience in a cover story for The Boston Herald.
