This is a nice surprise: “Who Do You Think You Are?” is returning for a summer season on TLC starting Sunday, July 26 at 9/8 central. Famous folks whose ancestries we’ll learn about include:

  • Tom Bergeron, host of “Dancing With the Stars” and “America’s Funniest Home Videos.” He’ll go all the way back to his 10th-great-grandmother and his family’s migration to North America.
  • Bryan Cranston, the actor who played the dad on “Malcolm in the Middle” and is Walter White on “Breaking Bad.” Update: TLC’s original announcement hinted at Cranston’s discovery of an “unfortunate pattern amongst the men” in his family, but the show’s publicist sent an update that the episode will focus on the actor’s Civil War roots.
  • Ginnifer Goodwin, Mary Margaret/Snow White on “Once Upon a Time.” She learns more about her paternal great-grandparents, whom her father doesn’t know much about.
  • Alfre Woodard, television actor in “The Last Ship” and “State of Affairs” and film actor in 12 Years a Slave. She follows her paternal side and explores where her surname came from. She’s also the first African-American on the series in a few seasons—I think since Jerome Betis in 2012, when the show was still on NBC.

Shed Media and Is or Isn’t Entertainment produce “Who Do You Think You Are?” for TLC, and sponsor Ancestry.com provides research on the celebrity guests’ ancestors. (You’ll learn the “Who Do You Think You Are?” genealogy researchers’ secrets in Family Tree Magazine‘s upcoming Summer 2015 Discover Your Roots guide—I’ll share the link as soon as the guide becomes available in Family Tree Shop.)

The next season of “Who Do You Think You Are?” starts July 26. You can watch clips from past seasons on the show’s website.

  1. Please double check your dates regarding "Who Do You Think You Are?" Today is Saturday June 27, 2015 and Sunday will be June 28, 2015. What date will this program start? I cannot yet find it in searching the Channel. Mr. Eastman had the same incorrect date in his newsletter today, also.

  3. I am unable to get this channel. I love this show. How will I be able to see these new episodes. I wish it was back on regular TV abc, cbs, nbc channels we all get. PLEASE!!!!

  4. Hi, Hilary, that’s July 26, not June 26.

    Phyllis, looks like Season 5 episodes are on Amazon Instant Video: http://www.amazon.com/Melissa-Etheridge/dp/B00M2BYIF8/ref=sr_1_1?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1435582500&sr=1-1&keywords=who+do+you+think+you+are+tlc . TLC used to put full episodes on the show’s website after they aired, but it looks like they’ve stopped doing this.

    Hi, Cheryl, I know! Unfortunately, NBC canceled the series a few years ago, and the producers looked for a network that would pick it up. That happened to be a cable network, TLC.

  5. I don’t get to see Who Do You Think You Are until after the show airs. I don’t get TLC but my boyfriend has Concast and OnDemand so I watch it at his house.
