Plot Synopsis

Did aliens visit Earth during ancient times and change the course of history? This program goes around the world to uncover historic evidence, archaeological artifacts, long-standing traditions and legendary narratives to determine whether aliens were on Earth, where they came from, what they did while they were here and whether they plan to come back. Learn about the Dogon people's star god Amma, the Kachinas of the Hopi and Zuni, the Han leader of Chinese legends and the Anunnaki described in ancient Sumerian tablets. ANCIENT ALIENS returned for its sixth season on Monday, September 30, 2013 at 10pm ET/PT on History, with the season opener exploring the power of the number three and asking whether all the trios and trinities embedded throughout the mythical and religious world suggest that the power of three might somehow connect humanity with divine or, as some would believe, extraterrestrial forces. Later Season 6 episodes cover these topics: The Crystal Skulls; giant, winged gods called The Anunnaki; the role of magic in the ancient world; and the legend that Satan was an extraterrestrial. H2 returned for Season 7 on Friday, January 24, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT. The first episode back, "Aliens and Stargates," chronicled otherworldly creatures that appear and disappear in Mexico, and also documented sacred entryways to the land of the gods that allow instant passage beyond the confines of Earth a-- and beyond space and time. Subsequent Season 7 episodes explored these topics: star children; strange rock carvings from 8,000 B.C.; a frightening anomaly plaguing the American west; and many more strange and unexplained phenomena. ANCIENT ALIENS returned for its ninth season on Friday, October 31, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT on H2. In the Season 9 opener, "Forbidden Caves," some caves have been considered sacred places for spiritual encounter and enlightenment, while others have been feared as true portals to purgatory. In Charma, India, archeologists recently discovered 10,000 year-old prehistoric artwork of what appears to be extraterrestrial beings. Could these paintings be a visual record of alien encounters in the distant past? ANCIENT ALIENS returned for its tenth season on Friday, July 24, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on History. The season opener, "Aliens B.C.," features enormous manmade caves...Unexplainable structures... And underwater discoveries that challenge everything we know about the past...Is it possible that an advanced civilization inhabited Earth thousands of years ago? And if so, were they human, or something out of this world? Modern archaeologists are continuously unearthing artifacts and sites that defy the conventional timeline of human history. Throughout the world we find megalithic stone monuments that are attributed to mysterious ancestors, strange humanoid figures that date to pre-historic times, and evidence of ancient underground shelters hewn out of solid rock. Could it be that a sophisticated culture existed on here Earth -- thousands and even tens of thousands of years earlier than we believe? Could the stories of a time when gods and otherworldly beings inhabited the planet be more than just mythology? Season 11 of ANCIENT ALIENS premiered on Friday, May 6, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on History, immediately following an 11-hour marathon (10am-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "Pyramids of Antarctica," Antarctica is Earth's most remote and least explored continent. It is buried under as much as three miles of ice in some places, but recent satellite imagery has revealed what appear to be the tops of man-made pyramids scattered throughout the ice-covered landscape. But how is that possible? Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest that an ice-free Antarctica may have been colonized by extraterrestrials in the remote past, until a global catastrophe plunged it into the ice age. Is there a greater history on the continent than what mainstream scholars suggest? Scientists have reported strange magnetic anomalies radiating from beneath the ice, the Nazis allegedly made secret expeditions to the continent in search of a lost civilization, and government whistleblowers have come forward with claims of strange sightings. Perhaps hidden beneath the ice of this frozen continent lies the truth about our extraterrestrial origins.

On Friday, April 28, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, History premiered a new season of ANCIENT ALIENS, immediately following a nine-hour marathon (Noon-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "The Alien Hunters," in the 21st century, mainstream scholars, scientists, and world governments have for the first time openly joined the hunt for intelligent life beyond Earth. But while such an effort has never been made public before, in reality, the search for proof of extraterrestrial life has been underway for decades. Starting around 1947, a series of unexplained sightings and mysterious events forced certain high-level members within the US government to officially become alien hunters. Projects Sign, Grudge, and Bluebook were government programs to research UFO sightings--and by some accounts, literally hundreds of the reported events were unable to be explained. Ancient Astronaut theorists suggest there is evidence that similar endeavors were even made thousands of years ago, sighting ancient astronomical observatories found all over the world, and new evidence that Babylonians were tracking the movements of the planets over 2,000 years ago.
