Oddities Cast & Shop
Oddities is filmed in East Village, Manhattan. The television show follows the staff and customers that flock to the store called Obscura Antiques & Oddities. The show premiered on November 4, 2010. This half-hour documentary/reality television program has completed 5 successful seasons.
The stars of Oddities include co-owners Mike Zohn and Evan Michelson, and Ryan Matthew (a buyer and skull seller). If you watch the show, you have probably seen the staff visiting places such as auctions and flea markets to obtain their products. They are obviously determined to find items that are not only rare, but absolutely amazing. That is what makes this place such an attraction to many around the United States and beyond. The television show has even caught the interest of celebrities such as Jonathan Davis from Korn, actor Matthew Gray Gubler, and artist Cynthia von Buhler.
What Types Of Products Do You Find At Obscura?
Although you probably won’t find Albert Einstein’s brain here, you will certainly find plenty of unique stuff for your curiosity cabinet. Some of Obscura’s items include odd taxidermy animals, mummified animals, art made from body parts (such as nail clippings), medical oddities and a lot more. If you love oddities, then this is the place to find some of the most unusual items in the world.

Is There A Season 6 Coming?
If you follow the show, you are probably wondering if it has been cancelled. That is, because we we are now in 2016, and have not seen a single episode since the last show of Season 5, which aired on April 27,2014. So has it been cancelled? We did quite a bit of research on this question and could not find a single source that confirmed a cancellation. Even if you check Yahoo Answers, you don’t get much information (other than people saying there has yet to be an announcement).
2 Episodes For Season 6
Based on our research, there have only been 2 episodes made for Season 6. Unfortunately, at this time, none are available online (free or paid). We couldn’t find any information on whether they will be making more episodes any time soon. It doesn’t make any sense to create just 2 episodes for the entire season. However, as soon as we get new information, we will update this article.
Oddities: San Francisco
Debuted on June 23, 2012, the television series called Oddities: San Francisco is a spin-off of Oddities. The show follows the staff and various transactions that take place at the strange store called Loved to Death (located in San Francisco, California). Some of their products include antiques, bizarre taxidermy animals (including taxidermy dioramas), odd jewelry, weird art, and much more.

Out of all 5 seasons (or 6, if you want to count just a couple of episodes) filmed at Manhattan’s Obscura Antiques & Oddities shop, do you have a favorite episode? If so, tell us about it in the comments. Hopefully, in the near future, we will see many more episodes of the Oddities TV show.
