When Does ‘Destination Fear’ Season 3 Start on Travel Channel? Release Date & News
Destination Fear Season 3
Was Destination Fear cancelled or renewed for season 3? When does it start on TRVL Channel? Who will be returning for the new season? In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.
What Is Destination Fear About?
Maverick paranormal explorer Dakota Laden takes his sister, Chelsea, and best friend, Tanner, across the country in an RV to spend the night in the most haunted locations in America, testing the limits of human fear.
Each episode features two unsuspecting ghost-hunting enthusiasts given the chance by a close friend or relative to investigate or tour a haunted location in Canada or America. Under the impression their ventures are real encounters, guests are actually set up to experience paranormal activity, scaring them to the bone. At the end of the episode, the host replays the encounters, lets them in on the joke and exposes the real perpetrators, their friends or family.
Wanna go for a ride? Pack up ALL of your courage and get in the RV with paranormal explorers Dakota Laden, Chelsea Laden, Tanner Wiseman and Alex Schroeder as they hit the haunted highways, byways and back roads of America once again, spending the night inside the nation’s scariest places. Season Three of DESTINATION FEAR premieres Saturday, July 24 on both Travel Channel and discovery+. New episodes will debut Saturdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Travel Channel and begin streaming the same day on discovery+.
Across this season’s eight one-hour episodes, the fear-chasing foursome will be driven to the edge of endurance. Exploring under the harshest conditions they’ve ever faced, and using sensory deprivation tactics to augment their paranormal experiment, this trip will test their mental, emotional and physical strength to the extreme. Venturing inside notoriously haunted locations such as Ohio State Reformatory, the Villisca Axe Murder House and Odd Fellows Home, the team confronts intense supernatural forces – and they quickly learn these entities do more than go bump in the night.
“We’ve been through a lot together but even after all of our dark encounters, we’ve barely scratched the surface of what’s out there,” said Dakota Laden. “I usually save the worst location for last, but this time I am throwing us head-first into one of the scariest places in the entire country. And I have a few surprises up my sleeve to fuel the terror even more.”
In the season premiere, Dakota takes the team to one of the most frightening and infamous places in America: Waverly Hills Sanatorium in Louisville, Kentucky. The death rate was so high at this former tuberculosis hospital that a “body chute” was created to hide the constant flow of deceased bodies from those who were living in the facility. Dakota, Chelsea, Tanner and Alex have dreamed of visiting this location for years, but they’ve always been too afraid to confront the sinister forces lurking within, until now. Facing a dark history of brutal deaths and paranormal violence, the team is taunted by several tortured souls still looming within the abandoned halls. Physical afflictions and ghostly apparitions put the group through the ultimate test of strength and endurance.
“No other season has challenged our limits of fear like this one,” said Chelsea Laden. “It’s really forced us to exceed those limitations and do the unthinkable.” Added Tanner Wiseman, “I think this is the most vulnerable we’ve ever been. Even our pit stops are challenging. It adds a whole new layer to our experience.”
“Everything is extreme, even the locations,” said Alex Schroeder. “And as much as we try to ready ourselves for each situation, nothing can really prepare us for what comes next.”

A family was brutally murdered in the now-infamous Villisca Axe Murder House, and many believe that a dark and nefarious entity haunts the home. But it’s the seemingly paranormal connection to a hotel 40 miles away that has intrigued Dakota, and he and the team are the first to explore it.

My hope is that Destination Fear continues to be shown with new adventures. This show continues to deliver on what we like and the chemistry of Dakota, Tanner and the rest is really growing closer which is cool to watch! The destinations are awesome! It's cool to see how far I go until I get scared … lol
I love lovee this show and especially the team. Dakota, Chelsea, Tanner and Alex really do love and support each other and it’s cool getting to know them! I love the overall goal of concurring intense fear instead of just being unsafe, even though their experience levels vary, that’s what makes it more relatable and interesting to compare:))
I love this show please do not cancel it is my favorite show of all time. I love the relationship between Chelsea tanner and Dakota.

Thanks for the heads up Chris! We have updated status information accordingly.
SO HAPPY 😊 that Destination Fear was renewed. My Granddaughter and I watch both seasons over and over and love them all. Also happy that it's back in the travel channel. I pay enough for cable and would hate to pay extra.
glad it's coming back on travel channel. Enough show has been taken away on discovery plus!!! Some ppl don't have internet at home so its nice to know its staying on travel channel. When will they release season 1 and 2 on dvd??
Looking forward to seeing season 3 of Destination Fear. Really enjoy watching this show and hope to see another season of this show. Please don't cancel this show it is one of my favorite paranormal shows.
I’m so excited Destination Fear will have a New Season!
I love this show, the next best show to Ghost Adventures. You guys rock!!! Hope this show continues as long as GA has.
This is my favorite show of all times
I think it stinks that Discovery is now taking everything over to Discovery Plus making people who already pay to watch discovery on their cable pay even more if they want to watch these shows.
LOVE THESE FOUR! This show is really good, and their lifelong relationships make it even better. They truly care about each other!
