(US-Canada) Who Do You Think You Are to Return to NBC But in Limbo

Jan Meisels Allen


Deadline has stated that the network—NBC—has parked the show— which returned in July after nearly 10 years after it first aired on NBC, with no current plans for a second season. A final decision is expected to come in early 2023.


“ It follows an increasing trend in non-scripted television where shows aren’t officially canceled but rather shelved with no plans to return. Unlike scripted shows, which require options with cast, many networks no longer feel the need to immediately cancel non-scripted series outright as they could potentially bring them back down the line…


Who Do You Think You Are? was initially ordered in spring 2019 by the network’s previous reality administration. Based on the British BBC format, it originally ran on NBC for three seasons until 2012, when it was picked up by TLC and ran for an additional seven seasons.


The latest NBC series, which is produced by Warner Bros. Discovery-owned Shed Media and Is or Isn’t It Entertainment, featured celebrities Allison Janney, Zachary Levi, Nick Offerman, Billy Porter, Zachary Quinto and Bradley Whitford.”
