New York, January 29, 2013 – H2 has greenlit a second season of AMERICA UNEARTHED. Production on season 2 will begin in the Spring. Scott Wolter will return as host.


AMERICA UNEARTHED premiered in December 2012 and has averaged 824,000 total viewers and 408,000 Adults 25-54, making it the #1 series of all time on H2. And, the recent Friday, January 25 premiere of AMERICA UNEARTHED pulled in 1 million total viewers and 547,000 Adults 25-54, becoming the #1 telecast of all time on the network.


In AMERICA UNEARTHED, forensic geologist Scott Wolter, a real-life Indiana Jones, reveals that the history we all learned in school may not always be the whole story. Across the country, ancient symbols, religious relics and unexplained artifacts suggest that civilizations from around the world have left their mark for us to find today. Wolter not only digs through the surprising burial ground that is America for archaeological secrets, but he also uncovers compelling evidence that pre-dates the official "discovery" of the New World and turns a lot of what we think we know about American history on its head. AMERICA UNEARTHED proves there is a lot we don't know about our past, and that people have gone to great lengths to cover up these mysteries. New episodes premiere on Friday’s at 10pm ET on H2.


AMERICA UNEARTHED is produced for H2 by Committee Films. Paul Cabana and Brian Meere are Executive Producers for H2.

    Great show, happy that it got renewed.

    I wrote about hearing more about what they think about the Judaculla Rock which is near Western Carolina University. It is believed to be quite old, and nobody has really come up with an explanation for it. I can’t wait to see the episode that will talk about it on season two.

    TWO THUMBS UP for the show. I have the DVR recording the shows, in case I miss them.

    Oh no, this show makes a joke of real archeology! It advocates hoaxes as actual artifacts, not to mention it is EXTREMELY racist against Native Americans. This show should be thrown out with extreme prejudice.

    Just did some research on this program and found some interesting things. No record of the masters degree, lots of tax payer money going into this program and most of what he is saying has been debunked. Do your self a favor check it out for your self. The internet is a great source of information.
