Syfy UK March Premiere Date For ‘Project Blue Book’ Season 2
Syfy UK has set a March premiere date for the return of ‘Project Blue Book’ for its 2nd Season it has been announced.
At a time when UFOs and related phenomena have piqued worldwide attention and public intrigue, season two will take a dramatic look back at where the UFO conspiracy first began and highlight real cases that ignited America’s fascination around the topic. Based on the true, top-secret investigations into Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and related phenomena conducted by the United States Air Force from 1952-1969, each episode will draw from the actual case files blending UFO theories with authentic historical events from one of the most mysterious eras in United States history.
‘Project Blue Book’ is inspired by the personal experiences of Dr. J. Allen Hynek (Aidan Gillen – ‘Game Of Thrones’), a brilliant college professor recruited by the U.S. Air Force to spearhead this clandestine operation (Project Blue Book) that researched thousands of cases, over 700 of which remain unsolved to this day. The ten-episode sophomore season will find Dr. Hynek and Captain Michael Quinn (Michael Malarkey – ‘The Vampire Diaries’) on a dangerous quest for the truth and delve deeper into themes of global conspiracy, touch on how UFOs have impacted the evolution of our nation’s military practices and technology and lean into the nostalgia of the 1950s. It will also kick-off with a deep dive into two of the most well-known UFO cases in US history: Roswell, New Mexico where a rancher claimed to have found mysterious wreckage on his property thought to be a UFO and Area 51, a government-run location in Nevada historically rumoured to be a magnet for paranormal events and UFO-related activity.
Other episodes this season take Hynek and Quinn further into the secrets and conspiracies of the 1950s, with stories about the haunting Skinwalker Ranch (a 512-acre property reputed to be the site of numerous paranormal and UFO-inspired events), the mysterious Kelly-Hopkinsville encounter (where a rural Kentucky family claimed to have been visited by aliens), the CIA’s infamous mind-control experiments, and an episode which follows Hynek in his role as expert consultant to the film ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’.
In addition to Gillen and Malarkey, returning cast for Season 2 include Neal McDonough (‘Arrowverse’, ‘Altered Carbon’) as General James Harding, Michael Harney (‘Orange Is The New Black’) as General Hugh Valentine, Laura Mennell (‘Watchmen’, ‘The Man in the High Castle’) as Mimi Hynek and Ksenia Solo (‘Black Swan’, ‘Lost Girl’) as Susie Miller.
‘Project Blue Book’ Season 2 premieres Thursday, 12th March 2020 at 9pm on Syfy UK.
