Who Do You Think You Are?: Cancelled TV Series May Be Revived

Who Do You Think You AreAccording to a new report, TLC is in talks to resurrect Who Do You Think You Are?. NBC cancelled the reality show in May after three seasons and 27 episodes. The program had a partnership with the Ancestry.com site and follows celebrities as they trace their family history.

Bloomberg says that the cable channel is in talks to bring back the show and supposedly talks have reached an “advanced stage.” The article also notes that producers have also had talks with other outlets to potentially pick it up. No other details were offered and the sources asked to remain anonymous.

NBC’s cancellation reportedly contributed to a plunge in stock prices that caused Ancestry.com’s stock to lose a third of its value earlier this year. The revival of Who Do You Think You Are? would theoretically help attract more users and boost prospects for the sale of the company.

What do you think? Would you like to see a fourth season of the Who Do You Think You Are TV series?

I looked forward to every episode. It was educational and riveting at the same time. I can’t understand why a quality program like this off the air and other meaningless shows remain on the air. Bring it back!
