December 11, 2019, BOSTON, MA — From an instantly-recognizable pop culture prop to a never-before-seen knockout reaction, PBS’s most-watched ongoing series continues to deliver surprises every week! Kicking off January 6 at 8/7C PM, ANTIQUES ROADSHOW visits five distinctive locations across the country to discover an all-new season of fascinating finds and the sublime stories that accompany them.
The 17-time Emmy® Award-nominated series will bring viewers along on its visits to a vibrant botanical garden in the desert, a living history celebration of our pioneer past, and more in the three one-hour episodes produced at each venue.
“This new season includes some of my favorite ROADSHOW moments in recent memory,” says ANTIQUES ROADSHOW executive producer Marsha Bemko. “Just when I think I’ve seen it all, the guests, objects, and stories we capture amaze me all over again. And if I am surprised, I think it’s a safe bet you will be too!”
A selection of surprises from the 25-episode season include:
- In Winterthur, Delaware, ROADSHOW visits the state for the first time with a stop at Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library for a heartwarming appraisal of a 1923 Frank Schoonover oil painting that the owner’s mother bought for his father by secretly saving $5 of their food money every week for two years.
Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library episodes air January 6, 13, and 20.
- In West Fargo, North Dakota, ROADSHOW travels to the Midwest—and back in time—at pioneer town Bonanzaville for the stunning and season-topping $500,000-$700,000 appraisal that, for the first time ever, causes the guest to fall to the ground in astonishment. Bonanzaville episodes air January 27, February 3 and 10.
