Utah's Skinwalker Ranch — also known as Sherman Ranch — has been regarded as a possible hotspot for supposed paranormal and alien activity for decades now. As such, the show has been the subject of plenty of paranormal investigations from podcasts to movies and TV shows.

One of the recent popular investigations comes in the form of the History Channel's docuseries, The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch, which describes the titular property as a center for "UFO and "High Strangeness" phenomena.

The first season (which has just recently been made available on Netflix) of the show originally aired on the History Channel back in 2020. 

In the first season, the ranch's new owner, real estate mogul Brandon Fugal assembles a team of researchers, scientists and experts led by the astrophysicist, Dr. Travis Taylor to get to explore the property. There, they employ a variety of technology and scientific techniques to try and get to the bottom of the Ranch's mysterious past, and they even spot two UFOs in the sky above the Ranch.

The Secret of Skinwalker Ranch teases (opens in new tab) you'll experience everything from unexplainable animal deaths to "close encounters" plus the team explores UFO sightings reported at the ranch and evidence of anomalies hidden underground.
