December 19, 2018

The day after Christmas, you may be dreaming of a warmer climate. Perhaps a tropical breeze? On Travel Channel's new series, Mysterious Islands, Kellee Edwards seeks out the most remote islands on earth, hoping to uncover the secrets they hold. Kellee's passion for adventure takes her to places that most have never seen and introduces her to people with unique and fascinating stories.

Watch two back-to-back episodes of Mysterious Islands on Dec. 26 at 11|10c, starting with Kellee jaunting over to the Indonesian island of Sulawesi. Kellee's expedition uncovers a shocking discovery that might send shivers down your spine.

On the next episode, Kellee journeys off the Georgia coast to unlock the secrets of Sapelo Island. Inhabited by descendants of enslaved Africans, all those that have attempted to develop the island have met tragic and untimely deaths. What has protected the island and the Geechee people from the outside world? A powerful spirit? A curse? As Kellee uncovers the truth about Sapelo, she realizes the answers to its mysteries are more personal than she ever imagined.
