Morgan Freeman Returns to Host ‘Story of God’ in January

The second season of National Geographic’s The Story of God With Morgan Freeman debuts Monday, Jan. 16, the network said.

Season one was its most-watched series of all time, according to National Geographic, which said actor/producer Freeman “will again take viewers around the world on a quest for interfaith understanding and connectivity through the lens of the world’s major religions, science, anthropology and archaeology.”

Season two features three episodes. The series will go global this spring on National Geographic channels in 171 countries. Freeman said he hopes the series will continue "to open dialogue that will allow us to understand our neighbors both here in the U.S. and around the world.”
