HISTORY(R)'S NONFICTION SERIES "HUNTING HITLER" RETURNS FOR ITS THIRD AND FINAL SEASON ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 2 AT 10PM ET/PT

'Hunting Hitler' Recap Special to Air on Tuesday, December 26 at 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK, NY - December 11, 2017 - Three years into the investigation of one of the greatest cold cases in history, 21-year CIA veteran, Bob Baer, looks to solve the final piece of the puzzle and determine the true fate of the most reprehensible mass murderer of the 20th century, Adolf Hitler, once and for all. The eight episode, third and final season of HISTORY's nonfiction series, "Hunting Hitler" premieres on Tuesday, January 2 at 10PM ET/PT. A recap special of the series is set to air on Tuesday, December 26 at 10PM ET/PT.

In season three, Baer recruits a new asset to help him with his investigation, Nada Bakos, former Terrorist Targeting Officer, and one of the world's foremost experts on terrorist networks. Bakos was on the team responsible for tracking and dismantling al-Qaeda and gathering the intelligence that lead to the capture of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (The Godfather of ISIS), and the biggest prize of all, Osama bin Laden. Together, Baer and Bakos deploy a team in the field that includes U.S. Army Special Forces Sgt. Tim Kennedy; Veteran investigative journalist, Gerrard Williams; U.S Army Green Beret, Mike Simpson; former Chief Inspector and Commander of the U.S. Marshall Fugitive Task Force, Lenny DePaul and World War II historian, James Holland. These operatives will employ local experts and historians armed with the most cutting edge technology, to examine this massive network and take a closer look at how Hitler could have escaped justice.

To zero in on Hitler's definitive escape route, Baer implements the man-hunting strategy that intelligence agencies across the globe use to find and capture high value targets, "asset mapping." The team will investigate Hitler's network of top associates, analyzing the roles they played in his potential escape. Enacting the Asset Mapping strategy, the team uncovers two Nazi escape routes out of Germany. Will this new information help them solve the answers to their questions to be able to close the book on this cold case?

It's currently a top 5 nonfiction series on HISTORY in all key demos this year in Live+7 (A25-54, A18-49, M25-54, M18-49) and averaged 2.2 million total viewers last season in Live+7 delivery.
