DESCRIPTION: (from History's press release, September 2014) Mondays are about to get a whole lot more mysterious this fall on HISTORY with the return of the hit series THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND and the premiere of the new series SEARCH FOR THE LOST GIANTS. The series premiere Tuesday, November 4 at 9PM ET/PT and 10PM ET/PT respectively. In season two of THE CURSE OF OAK ISLAND, brothers Rick and Marty Lagina are ratcheting up their search for an elusive treasure that sits at the heart of a 200-year-old mystery. Located in the North Atlantic, Oak Island is believed by many to be hiding one of the greatest treasures in history. Since the late 1700's, fortunes have been spent and lives have been lost, but no one has ever been able to crack the code to get at the prize. A prophecy says that seven people will die before the treasure is found. So far, six have perished in accidents across the years. In the new season, Rick and Marty are upping the stakes after their invigorating find of a 17th century coin they discovered at the end of season one. This time around, the brothers and their team of experts are digging deeper and pushing their search further. They will use new technology and explore new theories, hunting clues from around the world to find out what lies beneath Oak Island.
