TLC has announced the premiere date and a partial lineup for the next season of the genealogy TV show “Who Do You Think You Are?

We’ll see eight episodes of “Who Do You Think You Are?” this year, with the premiere scheduled for Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 10/9 central. (This gives us an unbroken 14 weeks of Tuesday evening genealogy viewing, as PBS’ “Genealogy Roadshow” airs weekly Jan. 13-Feb. 17.)

Four of the celebrity guests who’ll explore their family history on this season’s episodes are:

  • Julie Chen, television personality, who takes the series to China for the first time
  • Angie Harmon, actor, who learns a relative served under Gen. George Washington
  • Sean Hayes, actor/producer, who discovers his paternal Irish roots
  • Bill Paxton, actor/director/producer, who learns about his family’s part in the American Revolution

The series is produced by Shed Media and Is or Isn’t Entertainment, and sponsored by, which also provides the research into guests’ family trees.
