New York, NY - September 4, 2019 - HISTORY's hit unscripted series "In Search Of," hosted and executive produced by Emmy-nominated actor Zachary Quinto, will kick off its eight-episode second season on Friday, October 4 at 10PM ET/PT.

From centuries-old legends to those based in historical and scientific evidence, each one-hour episode, headlined by Quinto, will take on a different iconic puzzle.
