A longtime adventurer, survivalist and military veteran, Cliff Simon is no stranger to danger and battling the extreme. Fascinated by the supernatural all his life, Simon is now taking his expertise on a personal mission, deep into the murky world of the paranormal in “Into the Unknown.” On a hunt for answers to the nightmarish myths and legends that have haunted locals for millennia – swamp monsters, mythical beasts, ancient aliens and mysterious phenomena – Simon uses his skills to hike, swim and even crawl his way into places most wouldn’t dare go. Whether he’s spending the night inside the ancient lava tubes of California’s Mount Shasta or trudging his way through the deadliest swamp in America, Simon’s journey takes him to haunting places where the wilderness and paranormal intersect. [Hour-long episodes]
SERIES PREMIERE: “The Rougarou” – Premieres Monday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET/PT
Cliff Simon heads deep into the heart of the Louisiana bayou where, according to legend, lurks a swamp monster known as the Rougarou – a fearsome werewolf-like beast that feeds on human flesh. Simon is determined to track down its lair, and that will mean fighting his way through the largest – and deadliest – swamp in America, the sprawling Atchafalaya Basin. As it covers 1.4 million acres of untouched Louisiana wetlands, narrowing down the search is critical. During his journey, Simon meets with a Cajun family who shares footage of a strange beast walking on two legs and meets with a First Nations chief who describes her chilling encounter with a powerful shapeshifter. Simon then heads into the bayou at night, alone, with his GPS tracker set for an ancient burial site. Along the way, he uncovers a giant abandoned nest littered with bleached bones. Will he have his own encounter with the Rougarou?
