The popular unscripted series “In Search Of” returns to HISTORY this fall. The show is hosted and executive produced by Emmy-nominated actor Zachary Quinto, and is scheduled to start its eight-episode second season on October 4th.

The series is inspired by the 1970s franchise of the same name, and the investigative series travels the world, examining mysteries, all while using the latest in science and technology to reveal new evidence and unlock secrets. The network’s description of the show reads, “From centuries-old legends to those based in historical and scientific evidence, each one-hour episode, headlined by Quinto, will take on a different iconic puzzle.”

The second season explores the legend of the Loch Ness monster, UFOs, the Bermuda Triangle, the lost colony of Roanoke, the Ark of the Covenant and the end of the world, to name a few. Viewers can expect to see, for the first time, DNA testing used in the mystery of the lost colony of Roanoke, advanced sonar and SCUBA canvassing for evidence of the Loch Ness Monster with some surprising results, a brand-new theory about the Bermuda Triangle and a new, never-before-seen crop circle discovery in Texas.

Additionally, this season Quinto takes viewers on a journey across the U.S. and the globe including stops in Ethiopia, Sweden, Israel, Guatemala, Chile, Germany, and Poland.

As we mentioned earlier, the show is based on the original franchise. The original “In Search Of” series aired from 1977-1982 and was hosted by Rod Serling and later by Leonard Nimoy following Serling’s death. “In Search Of” reached 19M viewers throughout its first season according to the network.

“In Search Of” is produced for HISTORY by Propagate Content, Universal Television Alternative Studio and Before the Door Pictures with Fremantle distributing the series globally. Quinto serves as executive producer. Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Scooter Yancey, Brett-Patrick Jenkins and Laurie Girion are executive producers for Propagate Content. Zachary Behr is executive producer for HISTORY.
