The show returns for its second season on TLC and its fifth season overall on Wednesday, July 23.

It features stars uncovering secrets and learning their histories as they travel the world in search of their family histories. They often discover how history has shaped their lives, and how personality traits have been passed down.

Ancestry.com will once again serve as a sponsor and partner on the show, providing research that will help each journey of discovery.

Kudrow and "Scandal" star Dan Bucatinsky serve as executive producers via their production company Is or Isn't Entertainment. Shed Media US also produces with executive producers Pam Healey, Stephanie Schwam and Alex Graham.
