Finding Bigfoot season 8 is off to a great start as the team continues its search for Bigfoot into the new year. This season of the show features stops in some old and new locations as the hunt for Bigfoot evidence continues. The next stop for this new season of Finding Bigfoot is Asheville, North Carolina and the show is seeking locals who have had Bigfoot sightings and encounters. If you live in the area you can contact the show and reserve a spot at the town hall meeting, which is scheduled for February 9, 2016.
The greater Asheville area has been targeted as a location with plenty of Bigfoot activity according to producer Sean Mantooth. The Finding Bigfoot episode will cover Asheville and Western North Carolina and is set to air approx 4-6 months after its February filming. The Henderson County Bigfoot sighting and video were mentioned as part of the recent Bigfoot activity which caught the shows attention. Whether or not North Carolina will lead to proof of the elusive cryptid we will have to wait and see, but it should as always be an entertaining episode. Could the team finally prove the North Carolina Bigfoot exists?
Animal Planet is coming to Asheville in search of Sasquatch, and the TV crew seeks stories from locals at a town hall event on Feb. 9.
The show, “Finding Bigfoot,” follows four researchers who track the mythical beast around the world, aided by local lore. The episode featuring Asheville and Western North Carolina will film later this year, approximately four-to-six months after the February filming, said producer Sean Mantooth.
“We’ve done two previous episodes in East Tennessee and are now branching out across the border,” Mantooth said. “We only pick areas that have enough Bigfoot activity to warrant filming an episode of the show at. So while I can’t elaborate too much, rest assured that the greater Asheville area is Bigfoot Country.”
In August, the Citizen-Times released a video of a Henderson County Bigfoot sighting that went viral online.
“The only thing I can say about the Bigfoot sighting earlier in the summer is that we’re aware of it,” Mantooth said.
