I Was There Season 2

Was I Was There cancelled or renewed for season 2? When does it start on History? Now that season 1 is over, fans are wondering if the show will continue for another season or not. In this post, we have summarized everything we know so far about the next season.

What Is I Was There About?

Series offers an immersive trip back in time, placing Wilson at the center of some of history’s biggest events, to deconstruct how they truly unfolded. It features surprising perspectives on how a map, a dance, and fateful timing were factors in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and how cost-cutting, weather, and a spark created one of history’s worst aircraft catastrophes – the Hindenburg disaster. Each episode highlights a different moment in history.

The HISTORY® Channel’s new, twelve-part nonfiction series “I Was There” is executive produced by ABC’s “Good Morning America” and “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos and hosted by Theo E.J. Wilson, the grandson of a Tuskegee Airman.

Premiering across two nights on Sunday, February 20 and Monday, February 21 at 10:30PM ET/PT, the series offers an immersive trip back in time, placing Wilson at the center of some of history’s biggest events, to deconstruct how they truly unfolded. It features surprising perspectives on how a map, a dance, and fateful timing were factors in the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and how cost-cutting, weather, and a spark created one of history’s worst aircraft catastrophes – the Hindenburg disaster. Each episode highlights a different moment in history.

Inspired by his passion for history, Wilson is a fly on the wall as he breaks down the barrier between the audience and the action to revisit a series of critical historical events, disasters, triumphs and true stories to learn unexpected facts in an engaging, fast-moving, and often unpredictable way. The half-hour series will regularly air on Mondays at 10PM ET/PT beginning February 28.

Through original archival material, expert testimony and dramatic re-creations using CGI technology to place Wilson in the scene, each episode challenges ideas of what really happened during some of the most pivotal moments in history. This season explores Abraham Lincoln’s assassination; the Hindenburg disaster; the Salem witch trials; the death of Jesse James; the Oklahoma City bombing; the battle of Stalingrad; H.H. Holmes’ murder spree during the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair; the Chernobyl accident; the 1965 Bloody Sunday march from Selma to Montgomery; the 1986 space shuttle Challenger disaster; the 1889 catastrophic Johnstown flood in eastern Pennsylvania and the St. Valentine’s Day massacre.

Expert interviews include Emmy Award-winning journalist and “Nightline” co-anchor Byron Pitts, “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” author Ron Hansen, the FBI’s Chief Explosives Specialist Kirk Yeager, former NASA astronaut Winston Scott, Hood College’s Director of African American Studies and Associate Professor of American History Dr. Terry Anne Scott, founding director of the Racial Justice Initiative and Distinguished University Chair and Professor of History at the University of St. Thomas Dr. Yohuru Williams and more.
