Press release from History, June 13, 2019:

HISTORY will premiere the nonfiction series “The UnXplained,” hosted and executive produced by Golden Globe(R) and Emmy Award(R) winning actor William Shatner (Star Trek, “Boston Legal”) on Friday, July 19 at 10pm ET/PT. The eight-episode, one-hour anthology series will tackle subjects that have mystified mankind for centuries, from mysterious structures and cursed ancient cities to extraterrestrial sightings and bizarre rituals.

“I’m thrilled to be hosting and producing the new HISTORY series ‘The UnXplained” said Shatner. “It’s an intriguing show that will offer viewers credible answers to questions about mysterious phenomena, while also leaving other theories left unexplained.”

From Executive Producer Kevin Burns, the creator and producer of HISTORY’s most popular series, including “Ancient Aliens” and cable’s #1 nonfiction series “The Curse of Oak Island,” “The UnXplained” will explore facts behind the world’s most strange and bizarre mysteries. Hosted by Shatner, the series will also feature contributions from top scientists, historians, engineers and researchers – each seeking to shed light on how the seemingly impossible can happen.

“The UnXplained” joins HISTORY’s Friday night programming block which includes “Ancient Aliens,” one of the network’s longest running nonfiction series which reached over 80 million total viewers across total day in 2018 and the limited nonfiction series “Unidentified: Inside America’s UFO Investigation,” where former intelligence officials break boundaries and perceived government taboo by disclosing information about efforts being made to change government policy surrounding UFO phenomena; and the hit scripted series “Project Blue Book,” from executive producer Robert Zemeckis and recently renewed for season two, based on the true investigations into UFOs and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force in the 1950s and 1960s.

“The UnXplained” is produced for HISTORY by Prometheus Entertainment. Kevin Burns is executive producer for Prometheus Entertainment. William Shatner is an executive producer. Executive producer for HISTORY is Susan Leventhal.

  1. I am so proud of Mr Shatner- the way he is not afraid to lead in trying to answer the questions that are brought forth by our Generation Z. Thank you Sir, for your leadership.
    I. myself, am a nurse in the Labor and Delivery. I am so proud of Generation Z, they are not afraid of the future. Everyday that I work, I am thrilled to see a bright future from the strong family bonds in our upcoming family units of the future, They face horrible odds – yet they continue on, with creating a new life and family units. They are not afraid to love, and the fathers do not leave, but stay right, there taking an active role in their children’s lives- just like you, Mr Shatner, have portrayed. We need more of the actors like you, and promotions into understanding the realities in life- not the made up ones that we see on television today.
    Thank you for what you do.
