Last fall, the Discovery Channel introduced viewers to an unprecedented new series that brought the 'I wonder?' moment to television with a unique array of provocative subjects. We explored Atlantis, the sinking of the Titanic, and fourteen other puzzling mysteries.
This fall, CURIOSITY is back with new episodes, which Discovery is pleased to announce will be narrated by actor Josh Charles. The series will continue to look to answer some of the most iconic and enduring mysteries of science. What actually happens to a plane when it crashes? How is a mummy made? Why do people seemingly vanish into thin air in the Bermuda Triangle? What does Yellowstone look like from under the surface? And how was Stonehenge actually built? All of these questions and more will be explored in the new season of CURIOSITY beginning in October.
