History has yet to officially confirm the fate of Ancient Aliens Season 12

Release Date of #AncientAliens S12: To be announced
Advertisement

Ancient Aliens is an American television documentary series on the History Channel that originally premiered on April 20th, 2010. The hour-long series is produced by Prometheus Entertainment and is Executive Produced by Kevin Burns. The series explores different hypotheses regarding “ancient astronauts”.

#AA also explores the concept that ancient historical texts, evidence from archaeology and different legends and mythologies also point to the fact that humans have made contact with aliens or other extraterrestrial beings before. Season eleven of the show premiered on May 6th, 2016.

Can you tell me more about what this show is about?

The series is executive produced by Kevin Burns. Robert Clotworthy serves as a narrator for the show. During the first season of the show, the running time per episode was ninety minutes. From season two onward, each episode currently runs at forty-four minutes long. The series airs on the History Network, but the distributor is A&E Television.

The series took a brief hiatus from the History Network and aired on the H2 Network from season four to the middle of season seven. In each episode of the documentary, we see different “experts” speak on the subject of the extraterrestrial including the Reverend Barry Downing, psychologist Jonathan Young, the radio talk show host George Noory, and UFO researcher C. Scott Littleton. Giorigio Tsoukalo serves as the consulting producer for the show

How has the show been received? Have there been any criticisms of the documentary series?

The show has been criticized for presenting and exploring “pseudoscience and pseudo-history” as fact and as science. Despite receiving some negative feedback as being “far-fetched” and “hugely speculative”, the show has remained widely viewed during its first ten seasons. Perhaps it is the negative attention that keeps viewers coming back for more?

Brad Lockwood from Forbes.com talked about the addition of the series to the History channel line-up describing it as one of the “programs devoted to monsters, aliens, and conspiracies” and that the program “defies all ability to suspend disbelief for the sake of entertainment”.

Where did we leave off in the series?

The final episode of the tenth season of #AncientAliens aired in October of 2015. The episode explored the idea that aliens that could have visited us in the past and that knowledge and memory is being censored from us in modern times. The episode also explored the conspiracy that any knowledge of past visits might be stored in locations that are forbidden to the average civilian.

What has happened in season eleven so far?

Some of the ideas explored so far in season eleven include mysterious structures in Antarctica which some people believe are evidence of extraterrestrials as well as an episode on the theory that manned missions to Mars may reveal the existence of extraterrestrial intervention.

Will there be a twelfth season of the show?

We have not heard an official announcement on the official release of a twelfth season, but we also haven’t heard an official cancellation of the show either. Despite criticisms the show has received, it has remained one of the most popular shows on the network and our guess is that it will more than likely be renewed for a twelfth season. There have been so many different stories, points of view and perspectives featured on the show thus far, we are guessing there will be some repetition if there is a twelfth

season! We are sure though the producers will find some new stories and angles to keep the series fresh and up to date.

We want to hear from you!

What do you think of this series? Do you believe it is pseudoscience? Have you watched the show up to this point? Will you watch the new season of it is released again? Do you believe in aliens? Weigh in and let us know your thoughts and opinions!

“Ancient alien theorists believe”. As long as that phrase continues to be used throughout the show to hell with the negative reviews/haters. It’s fun to watch the informed speculation of believers where viewer can decide what to believe. Bring on season 12!

I have watched from the beginning. I enjoy the various ideas, I agree with some, not others. It doesn’t matter. It’s an interesting and fun show. Actually, the ONLY show on regular tv that I try to watch every week. On Fridays History has it on all day until the middle of the night. I leave it on and listen and/or watch. I do have one question, or comment/question: Philip Coppens has been dead for like 5 years, but he is still a “regular” on the show!!!!! Please explain. Thank you. I know that is his widow Kathleen something, who is also on quite a bit.

My husband and I are Ancient Alien fans. I wouldn’t watch that crummy channel Vice if you paid me! To even name a channel Vice is beyond stupid. A.A. is thought provoking, awe inspiring and fascinating. One sees things that you never see in textbooks or anywhere for that matter! The hosts of the show, like Giorgio, make every episode interesting and informative. I ask the people in charge of programming to PLEASE, PLEASE bring back our favorite program very soon ! We always stayed home Friday’s and watched A.A. pretty much all day. Reruns and all. Now, except for news we rarely watch T.V. anymore.

I think the show is great!!! It’s done in the style of Eric Von Daneken where they present the evidence then say ” what do you think” I wish Histiry channel would increase the rerun schedule as I used to count on seeing it in Friday nights & days inbetween!! The web site shows upcoming airings but they don’t come on!! Please put the show back on a regular schedule!! I had about 80 episodes dvr’d but after a year they auto drop off!! Now History is the Picker/Pawn Star channel!! Good shows but not 24/7. Give us our Aliens back!!

I grew up protestant, & am a student of history, religion & cosmology. Due to my investigation background I view things from an investigators viewpoint. It is my feeling that there is a lot more going on here on earth than we have been taught in school and church. The more we dig, the more we find; in science, history and religion. As far as this planet is concerned, there is a lot of strange things going that we are just recently becoming aware of. We have just scratched the surface.

My husband & I are absolutely fans & have watched every episode of every season to date! We love the show!! we believe the show is based on some really good facts & the government is & has been hiding too much from the public! They should tell the truth. What gives them the right to withhold anything? Everything that happens is as much our business as theirs as the planet is everyone’s too! Yes! We will watch the next season & yes we believe in aliens! Looking forward to Season 12!!!

No, I don’t think of it as pseudoscience at all. In fact it’s something that makes the most sense to me. I’ve come to find through my research that a lot of what was “taught” to me early in life was in large part lies. So I think for now I’ll follow Ancient Astronaut theory and see where it leads. Can’t wait for season 12!

My wife now watches with me and has been converted into a believer. Weather u believe in alien life or not the show is very informative and just plain AWESOME to watch.

When each season end approches I start to have an inner panic that it might be the last season. It is my hope the with all the buried civilizations and new sights found with satilitte almost everyday, that this imaging provide plenty of new areas to research along with other digs in process.
The team that is so cohesive and who during the show show their outright amazement on some of the sights and evidence of old civilizations.
Very hard to whittle down my favorite but Season 11, The Watchers, with information 10 of thousands of years old that the Aborigines have kept by verbal, dancing and cave drawings thier history is and must be true, these folks would never put an untruth in their historical past.
Please continue you quests for information and the true we all want to know

Watched all episodes via the box sets as I have only recently been able to get it via the internet here in UK. I think there’s too much evidence in the historical record (texts, images, archaeology, giant skeletons, myths, and folk lore) for there not to have been extra terrestrial contact in the past as well as the present. To my mind it just has to be the case that the US and other governments are not just in contact but also have access to alien technology. It makes sense that disclosure hasn’t happened because of the impact on society across the world (a US study in the early 60s came to that conclusion). I also suspect commercial interests also stop disclosure – at stake is free energy that would wipe out energy companies, generating companies, and their stakeholders, Arms sales would probably cease (because no-one would want to continue with conflict if free energy was available to all combined with the collapse of destructive religious beliefs) and that wouldn’t do would it! I’d like to see an episode about what the US Presidents of the 20th century knew about alien contact, especially the idea that Kennedy was assassinated because he was threatening to get access to Area 51 which had been denied him up to that point. There’s some thought going round that one of the first briefings of any new President is about the alien situation. Not sure what – are they friendly, not friendly, have a hold on humanity because of their superior technology and ability to disable missiles and nuclear devices? Interesting times with Mr Trump about to get the same treatment. Now, if anyone can shake up the hierarchy on this issue, he might.

I think it is the only plausable answer, evolution has all but been disprovan, the bible has been shown to be just our ancestors describing what they’ve seen and heard as best they can with the limited language at the time. in fact the original Hebrew texts say completely different things to our version. the original Hebrew texts talk of the Sky Gods coming down to create us. So the bible itself keeps informing us that we are talking about Aliens and not gods. the proof is everywhere, You just need to look with open eyes.

Is there some “power” that is blocking this type of show? Has it been too close to the truth? What about actual evidence of past structures presented-they are real and here now for all to see and wonder how they got here since many could not be duplicated even with todays tech

Wait until u wake up in the middle of the night paralyzed from head to toe looking in to one of those things cold black eyes, rembering only that this fear feels vagley familiar. You will then understand that these are not cool ancient astronauts that the show makes them out to be but the living incarnations of the devil himself.

My husband and I are total believers and have watched from the beginning. I actually watch every episode, record them, and watch/listen and even fall asleep to them over and over. Some episodes I’ve seen at least 50 times each. It’s the only show I truly look forward too. Moses, Enoch, Noah, Shiva, Buddha, etc have all been mentioned, it’s time to talk about Jesus too. Everything from the bible would make actual sense if we accepted the AA angle. I don’t understand why we are continuouly lied to, by our government and churches, it’s so frustrating. Thank you AA for helping and being there for those of us who want to live with our eyes open. Please bring on Season 12!

Have been watching since season one. It’s no more believable or less than anything else we see on television. I believe anything is possible and find the show very entertaining. I feel there are to many similarities from around the world and the truth was probably covered up by the church or destroyed like the other hundreds of years of history they didn’t want society to know of. I believe God is the one and only but has many avenues to be their for society in many ways and we are just now connecting the dots. Bring on the new season.

Well . . . “Ancient Aliens” hasn’t bored me! If my father had lived to watch this one, he’d have been a fan of television and might have read fewer science fiction paperbacks! I’d love discussing the historical places this program brings to light with him, but I lost him years ago. Funny, he talked about some of these things long BEFORE this program came together and caught my attention! Please, yes, a 12th season! (Even reruns!?) And maybe about 20 more years’ worth of new programs? Otherwise, I’ll end up reading all Daddy’s old books. My brother has kept them safe but he’s also an “AA” fan — if a bit less believing than I am. And yes, I check out the stars in Orion’s Belt and wonder when they’ll return. . . .

Absolutely love the show. I also read every book on the subject. If you realize how much evidence there is worldwide it would be hard to dispute. My only criticism is the show should stick to the facts and the evidence. Stop the wild speculations about other dimensions and time travel, etc. Makes the show less believable.

I love ancient aliens. I believe, with eleven seasons aired, that we can begin to take a more educated approach in the episodes. What I mean is, I believe you have a fairly educated audience and you can delve dealer into the Annunaki and ancient Sumerian. I would love to see an episode exploring the Zeta Reticuli swap and the Reagan Briefing documents. How about newly released FBI docs siting extra dimensional beings? Thanks for a great series.

Nothing harder to penetrate than a closed mind! The debunkers and naysayers have never looked at the evidence. They just flap their lips and write nonsensical reviews they dream up while sitting on the john. Bring them on! With all the high-quality evidence presented, you’ve got to think that much of it may just be true; the rest, you decide. The Ancients are telling us that they spoke to flesh-and-blood gods flying around on nuts-and-bolt, technologically advanced vehicles. Who are we to question them? Were any of you there? Maybe, we were all there; we just can’t remember. Let’s bring on Season 12 and get in touch with our ancient cousins!

I really miss this series and hope they will do a new season. I’ve seen every episode and love seeing all the anomalous evidence and artifacts. Those who denigrate the show are usually close-minded bigots who think they know everything and everyone who doesn’t agree with them are idiots. There are so many archaeological artifacts that seem to contradict the mainstream view of human history and I would think true scientists should want to investigate all possibilities instead of automatically berating every idea outside of academia with little or no investigation. I would like to see the show include some of the skeptics’ arguments but it’s probably hard to get any of them to agree to appear on the show anymore.

Love this show, I’m a believer absolutely. Have been a fan from beginning and this show goes beyond the unknown. Please keep going with season 12:) I believe all of every episode and think our world has a lot of hidden secrets about us and our past. Maybe these ancient aliens will visit again , especially in hard times.

My favorite show, I am a died hard Ancient Astronaut Theorist myself. The show asks questions just like Eric did in Chariots of the Gods. I love Archeology and shows about aliens, and this show hits them both. I’ve seen every episode 5-8 times depending on the episode. I hope it is around forever, and whatever happened to Hangar 1?
