"THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN" RETURNS FOR AN AWE-INSPIRING SECOND SEASON THIS JUNE ON SCIENCE

--Academy-Award(R) Winner, Morgan Freeman, Leads Viewers on a Captivating Journey Across the Universe and Into the Innerverse of the Mind--

(Silver Spring, Md.) - The iconic Morgan Freeman returns to SCIENCE on Wednesday, June 8, at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) for a second season of the breakthrough series, THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN. Each of the ten world-premiere episodes poses an all-new question that spans space, science and the unknown - and peaks Freeman's insatiable curiosity. THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN breaks down the walls of conventional television to explore the puzzles that have captivated mankind since our origin. In conjunction with the season premiere on June 8, SCIENCE will officially launch the network's new logo and on-air look.

"My love affair with science and the unknown began for me in my high school physics class," said Freeman. "My mind sprung open - all because of the questions I asked. In this new season of THROUGH THE WORMHOLE, we will explore ten new mystifying questions that will change the way you look at the world around you."

Season two begins with arguably the most provocative question of all: "Is There Life after Death?". Other topics explored in season two include; "Is There an Edge to the Universe?", "Can We Live Forever?" and "What Do Aliens Look Like?". Combining stunning visuals with innovative scientific research, season two examines the astonishing theories of world-leading experts at the forefront of mankind's search for truth. Each episode also boasts original scores from the incomparable, Academy-Award(R) Winning composer, Hans Zimmer - himself the son of a scientist.

"THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN is a defining franchise for SCIENCE," said Debbie Adler Myers, general manager and executive vice president for SCIENCE. "This series connects the world of deep science with the beauty and wonder of the human mind - and there is no better guide for this journey than Morgan Freeman. He and his team at Revelations Entertainment are the perfect partners for this project."

THROUGH THE WORMHOLE is produced by Revelations Entertainment and The Incubator. Morgan Freeman and Lori McCreary are executive producers for Revelations Entertainment. James Younger is executive producer for The Incubator. Bernadette McDaid is executive producer and vice president of production for SCIENCE, and Debbie Myers is executive producer, general manager and executive vice president for SCIENCE.

Full series description below: (10 x 60)

Episode 1: IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH? Premieres Wednesday, June 8 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) In the premiere episode of the second season, Morgan Freeman dives deep into this provocative question that has mystified humans since the beginning of time. Modern physics and neuroscience are venturing into this once hallowed ground, and radically changing our ideas of life after death. Freeman serves as host to this polarized debate, where scientists and spiritualist attempt to define 'what is consciousness', while cutting edge quantum mechanics could provide the answer to what happens when we die.

Episode 2: IS THERE AN EDGE TO THE UNIVERSE? Premieres Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) It is commonly theorized that the universe began with the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago. But since we can only see as far as light has traveled in that time, we can't actually make out the edge of the universe. Could it be that the universe is infinite? Is there any way to find out what the shape of the universe really is? Can we find the edge, discover what might lie beyond it, and perhaps even discover a universe next to ours?

Episode 3: IS TIME AN ILLUSION? Premieres Wednesday, June 22 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) It is a question that has vexed philosophers and scientists for centuries; 'What is Time Exactly how is our past, present, and future connected by that arrow of cause and effect that we call Time? Is time simply another dimension, just like the dimensions of space we know? Can you run time backwards just as easily as it runs forward, just as left-to-right can swap for right-to-left? If other universes exist, then what is time like in them: could their Time be different from ours? And we'll probe the biggest question about time: Is our future determined? Do we exercise free will? Or, is time merely a dream?

Episode 4: ARE THERE MORE THAN THREE DIMENSIONS? Premieres Wednesday, June 29 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) We move and live in three dimensions: length, width, and height. However, Einstein revealed what was once unimaginable: time is actually a dimension and linked with space itself. To reconcile the massive cosmic and miniscule quantum worlds, physicists are realizing four dimensions may not be enough. They're unraveling up to eleven dimensions. How could this be true? Where could these dimensions be?

Episode 5: IS THERE A SIXTH SENSE? Premieres Wednesday, July 6 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) Can we perceive objects and events beyond the world detected by our five senses? The true limits of our human brain remain a scientific mystery. New studies in neuroscience are showing that our minds can really detect events and objects that our conscious selves know nothing about. Can we predict events in the future? Is there such a thing as a global consciousness? Could physical laws on the cusp of being discovered be at the root of all this?

Episode 6: ARE THERE PARALLEL UNIVERSES? Premieres Wednesday, July 13 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) Imagine you will die tomorrow morning in a horrific car crash. Somewhere far, far away, there's an exact version of you that got in the same car, drove the same route, and collided with the same commuter. But this other version of you survives to drive another day. It may sound like science fiction, but it's looking more and more scientific likely. Somewhere out there, beyond the cosmic horizon, inside a black hole, or as close as an atom's length away, there could be a parallel universe. If this is the case, how could we ever know? And would we ever be able to pay this universe a visit?

Episode 7: IS THERE AN EQUATION OF EVERYTHING? (WORKING TITLE) Premieres Wednesday, July 20 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) It was Einstein's famous unfinished project - to find one law that unites all of physics, and explain everything in the universe. It's still an unfinished project, and today hundreds of physicists from CERN to NASA to the Ivory Towers around the world are struggling to find this holy grail of science. Is there one theory, one equation that governs every single event in our universe? An overarching structure to reality? This episode of THROUGH THE WOMRHOLE attempts to journey into an understanding what the universe is made of, and how we got here.

Episode 8: CAN WE TRAVEL FASTER THAN LIGHT? (WORKING TITLE) Premieres Wednesday, July 27 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) It's called the speed limit of the universe. Einstein blew all of our minds when he worked out the Theory of Relativity, and showed that space and time were malleable substances. He also theorized that we as humans can never travel faster than the speed of light, which leaves the stars and other galaxies almost impossibly out of our reach. But the dreams of Star Wars and Star Trek are not dead. In fact, there could be ways to travel faster than the speed of light - and some of them are already being tested in labs around the world.

Episode 9: CAN WE LIVE FOREVER? Premieres Wednesday, August 3 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) Medical advances have doubled human life expectancy in past centuries. But can humans ever beat death altogether? Can we control and fix the errors that build up in our DNA over the years? Can we find a way to replace the chemistry of life with something more durable? This episode wonders into the mystifying definition of 'eternity' as it relates to human lifespan.

Episode 10: WHAT DO ALIENS LOOK LIKE? Premieres Wednesday, August 10 at 10:00 PM (ET/PT) Science fiction writers have always had their little green men. But these humanoid aliens were based soundly on Earth-based life, not any extra terrestrial evidence. Today, we've discovered hundreds of planets around other stars. As we learn what some of these alternative Earths might look like, science and imagination have allowed us to use real science to imagine the biology of their inhabitants. Will they have two eyes? Two legs? What color will their skin be? Which species on Earth can give us clues about likely biology of aliens? And what can we learn from how life on Earth developed to help us understand what ET really looks like?
