Will Mountain Monsters Continue Season 9 or Is It Over?
Mountain Monsters Season 9
Was Mountain Monsters cancelled or renewed for season 9? When does it start on TRVL Channel? Now that season 8 is over, fans are wondering if the show will continue for another season or not. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.
What Is Mountain Monsters About?
There are creatures both legendary and unidentified roaming the Appalachian Mountains, and a band of hard-core hunters and trappers have made it their life’s work to investigate them. For generations, supposed sightings of these monsters — with such names as Wolfman, Devil Dog, Wampus Beast, Mothman and Lizard Demon — have occurred along the 1,500-mile stretch of mountains, and it wasn’t until the members of the Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings had their own personal encounters with these creatures that they became believers. Now, the AIMS crew, led by founders “Trapper” John Tice, Jeff Headlee and Willy McQuillian, use both traditional techniques and modern technology to track, trap and capture these monsters. Maybe AIMS will snag its first one while cameras are filming “Mountain Monsters”!
ONE LAST HOORAH FOR TRAPPER!
THE APPALACHIAN INVESTIGATORS OF MYSTERIOUS SIGHTINGS TEAM HONORS THEIR BELOVED LEADER JOHN ‘TRAPPER’ TICE IN NEW ONE-HOUR SPECIAL, ‘MOUNTAIN MONSTERS: A TRIBUTE TO TRAPPER,’ ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 3 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT
SEASON FIVE OF ‘MOUNTAIN MONSTERS’ CONTINUES TRAPPER’S LEGACY ON A NEW WILD ADVENTURE BEGINNING ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 10 AT 10 P.M. ET/PT
John Tice, affectionally known as “Trapper,” was the founder and leader of the Appalachian Investigations of Mysterious Sightings team (AIMS) that gave rise to the cult-classic series “Mountain Monster.” Sadly, Trapper passed away in December 2019, after a prolonged illness. “Mountain Monsters: A Tribute to Trapper,” premiering on Sunday, January 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, pays tribute to Tice, with the AIMS team sharing their favorite memories and moments with him over the years as they investigated cryptids throughout the woods of Appalachia.
The surviving members meet up for the first time after Trapper’s passing to discuss the team’s future and embark on adventures during seven one-hour episodes and a two-hour season finale of Season Five of “Mountain Monsters,” premiering on Sunday, January 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The AIMS team reads a personal letter from Trapper and heads out on a brand new adventure that he set up for them before he passed. Equipped with his personal journal filled with everything he ever learned about the woods, the team travels to the mountains of the Tygart Valley on a mission to prove that there are still wolves in West Virginia. A bounty put on them, and the last wolf was said to have been killed in 1900. The team encounters local farmers who tell of a dangerous predator that has been killing their livestock. The team soon believes that not only are there wolves in the Tygart Valley, but there is something much more mysterious and deadly.
“After the tragic loss of Trapper, we recognized the importance of finding a way to celebrate his life with our AIMS-obsessed fans and then continue his mission,” says Matthew Butler, general manager, Travel Channel. “What makes the new season so special is that the squad was eager to carry on Trapper’s legacy and head back to the forest, set on following his life’s work including intense hunts, thrilling twists and hillbilly hilarity.”
Throughout the season, the team learns from locals of massive K9 cryptids with glowing red eyes that inhabit the land and are known by locals as Smoke Wolves. As they dig deeper, they realize that Trapper in fact knew about these creatures back in the 1970s. The team spends time trying to figure out if this is what Trapper meant about the wolves of West Virginia. Then, to add to the monster fun, the team realizes there is a Bigfoot lurking, terrorizing the area as well.
By the end of the season, the team understands why Trapper sent them to the Tygart Valley. They come full circle as Trapper’s daughter is filled in on their incredible findings. And Huckleberry has a Bigfoot surprise for the ages in a twist ending no one sees coming.

They have to go back. What was trapper digging for when we saw the drill stuff? 2 what did trapper find when he was digging that scared him out of the valley? 3 at the end the drone caught a video of what the team is a Bigfoot walking? 4 they also found the pathfinder on the roof of the house thing. So many things unsolved and unanswered. So they really can’t just up and leave and forget about all that
Love Mountain Monsters one of my boys watch it too. I meet Bill right @ the beginning of covid, and he was looking for 🐟 fry! Lol & i got a pic of him & i for my boy… He loved & flipped out.
My kids and I absolutely love this show and just cannot wait for more!
Love this show I really hope they come back on.
I ❤️ these guys. I have been watching the show from day 1. Can't wait for season 9.
I agree with Drew. So many unanswered questions from last season. We need to know what scared Trapper out of the valley. I love this show. The guys are so funny.
Please renew soon. I love this show!!!!
It's the best thing on TV – look forward to seeing it every week – the guys have to come back
This is one of my favorite show, and yes we do need to find out about RIP TRAPPER what scared out, all these people and Trapper. Trappers not o to mention the is a Bifoot on the run. I hope that they caneed bring back the show. It's the BEST!!!!!.
Please bring back The AIMS team and Mountain Monsters. Probably my favorite show.
Love this show, please let them return, so many unanswered questions!
Please bring back the team!
I love this show and really hope it comes back! These are my people.🤗
We been watching this show since it started!! Heck we even got discovery+ just to watch it and reruns of the show!! Keep the show come Ng!!
I absolutely LOVE this show! these guys are great!!! Please bring it back!!!!! One of my favorite shows! I can't explain it, but I feel like I know these guys!
They have to come back, there are still too many unanswered questions. Nothing has been tied up. I love the show and wait every year for it to return so I can find out why they left off where they did. Will it ever be all tied together?
I own every season! When there is nothing on tv, I always have something to watch. I love to go back and rewatch my favorite guys from season one to eight. Diffently need more seasons to tie up loose ends. Also would love to revisit twisted torch! This show is the best monster hunting show out there and you would have too many disappointed fans if you were to cancel.
I also agree with Drew on the point of what was trapper so scared of in the tygart Valley. Was it the smoke wolves, the grafton monster, this Bigfoot they have evidence was? I wanna know what it was, but honestly I think it may have been those smoke wolves.
It's a great entertaining show. I've watched and PURCHASED every episode since the very beginning. AAA+++
I find this show awesome. It has shown me that what my elders in Mississippi are true.
I love mountain monsters I never missed a show. Like everything about it
Enjoy watching Mountain Monsters. Will be very disappointed if the show isn't back for another season
Best show on TV. Great writers leave you in suspense. Please renew the show.
I can’t get enough of the hunts. So much reminds me of the days my dad and I hunted. I have watched every episode so many times I can recite every word! I’d do anything to have a night hunt with these great men! Please come back soon and answer all the questions I’ve been trying to figure out! Love yall!!!
We NEED Mountain Monsters season 9 and more! And how about a spinoff – "The Real Housewives of the AIMS Team"?
Please renew the show! Mountain Monsters is the best @mountain_monsters_br
Wait for new shows!!
Love mountain monsters!
Hurry up and release new season!
I can't wait
Love it. Mountain Monsters and Skinwalker Ranch only two shows worth waiting for.
Please renew Mountain Monsters! It would be really nice to see the AIMS team and enjoy new shows. I'm tired of seeing shows listed as "new" that are from 2011 or before. I'm tired of having a day filled with old shows and one new show at 9pm then returning to the reruns.
