Zachary Quinto is stepping into Leonard Nimoy’s shoes yet again to host a reboot of the Star Trek icon’s In Search Of TV show. History has greenlit the unscripted series which aired from 1977-1982 and was hosted by Rod Serling and later by Leonard Nimoy following Serling’s death.

The 10-episode unscripted series will explore unexplained phenomena — alien encounters, UFO sightings, time travel, and artificial intelligence — from all around the world. In Search Of will explore enigmas told through the eyes of witnesses and scholars with a personal connection to the phenomenon and include immersive demonstrations and experiments that contextualize each episode’s theme. The series will also feature interviews with witnesses and scholars.

In Search Of

“I am so excited to be reimagining In Search Of and exploring new questions and phenomena with all of the advancements in science and technology from which we have benefited in the past forty years since the original series first aired,” said Quinto. “In the spirit of my late dear friend Leonard Nimoy, we intend to honor and perpetuate his endless curiosity about the world – and universe – in which we live. Our director Eddie Schmidt and our partners at Propagate, Universal Television Alternative Studio and FremantleMedia International have ignited the process with enthusiasm and intelligence, and History is the perfect home for this unique and compelling series.”

Eli Lehrer, Executive VP of Programming at History added:

“In the ’70s and ’80s, the legendary Leonard Nimoy captivated viewers by transporting them through the world of unsolved mysteries and paranormal phenomena. To this day, the investigations conducted in this series remain relevant and a source of public obsession. Now with Zachary’s passion and prevalence in the science fiction genre, the groundbreaking series is back for a new audience.”

In Search Of will air on History but a premiere date has yet to be announced.
