History Channel’s UFO Drama ‘Project Blue Book’ Renewed for a Second Season

February 10, 2019 0 By Jeff Fountain

Project Blue Book, the Robert Zemeckis-produced UFO drama on the History Channel, has been picked up for a second 10-episode season.

The show is inspired by the personal experiences of Dr. J Allen Hynek (played by “Game of Thrones” alum Aidan Gillen) in the top-secret military investigations into UFOs and other phenomena during the ’50s and ’60s.

“We are believers in ‘Project Blue Book’ and so is our audience who has sparked a conversation about the hundreds of unsolved cases and our nation’s military response to UFOs that have remained relatively secret until now,” said Eli Lehrer, head of programming for History, said in a statement. “Zemeckis, A+E Studios and our extraordinary creative team have shaped a compelling narrative that is the perfect blend of historical authenticity and entertainment that inspires curiosity in our viewers to learn more. We’ve touched on a very relevant topic and look forward to a second season.”

Project Blue Book also stars Michael Malarkey (Captain Quinn), Neal McDonough (General James Harding), Laura Mennell (Mimi Hynek), Ksenia Solo (Susie Miller) and Michael Harney (General Hugh Valentine).
