Sci Fi seeks more 'Truth'

Channel renews reality show for third season

Sci Fi Channel has renewed reality series "Destination Truth" for a third season to premiere in fall 2009.

The cable net has ordered nine episodes of the investigative show starring Josh Gates, who travels the globe searching for answers to unexplained mysteries.

For the first time, the third season will feature U.S.-based investigations in Alaska and Florida. Other upcoming locations include Chernobyl, Turkey, the Bermuda Triangle and another visit to the Himalayas, where Gates is looking for yeti evidence.

"Truth" wrapped its second season in October with 1.6 million viewers tuning in for the finale and double-digit growth over Season 1.

Brad Kuhlman is exec producing the show for Ping Pong Prods. Bechara Gholam is co-exec producing.
