“Who Do You Think You Are?” Returns to NBC

After a seven-year absence, the genealogy series is returning. 

The Emmy-winning documentary show follows celebrities as they trace their genealogy. Multiple outlets confirm that this second go-round will include 13 episodes. 

The series is produced by Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky. Ancestry and Shed Media are producing.

“Dan and I could not possibly be happier to be back at NBC where we get to work with Paul Telegdy, George Cheeks and Meredith Ahr. It honestly feels like we’re back home,” said Kudrow.

“Now, more than ever, people are looking to connect with their ancestry to uncover a deeper understanding of who they are,” said Ahr, President of Alternative and Reality Group at NBC Entertainment. “We’re excited to once again travel around the world with some of our favorite celebrities as they get answers and surprises about family members who came before them.”

“Lisa Kudrow and Dan Bucatinsky, along with our team at Shed Media, have made Who Do You Think You Are? not only a great television show but a genre-defining brand. We are thrilled to come back home to NBC. It couldn’t be a more perfect fit,” said Mike Darnell, Warner Bros. Unscripted and Alternative Television President.

A premiere date and list of participants will be announced later.
