The series that has broken ratings records for the network delivers eight all-new episodes that will provoke and inspire viewers to think beyond the boundaries of what they know. Covering such controversial topics as could poverty be genetic, how to crush a superpower and exploring the possibility of a zombie apocalypse, this season guarantees to break down the walls of conventional television to investigate the puzzles that captivate us all.
“Curiosity is a uniquely human characteristic,” said Morgan Freeman, executive producer and guide for the series. “Every season we dig deeper to ask those questions that have perplexed mankind for centuries. I hope with each episode we can continue to feed that curiosity and pursue those great unknowns that are still out there in the universe.”
“THROUGH THE WORMHOLE challenges our audience in a way that no other television program that is out there can,” said Rita Mullin, general manager of Science Channel. “With the hot-button topics that each episode explores, season five will leave viewers even more inspired than ever before. Morgan and Revelations Entertainment have delivered their best season yet.”
In season five of THROUGH THE WORMHOLE WITH MORGAN FREEMAN, Science Channel dares to take on the controversial issues of today. Each episode features leading experts, thinkers and scientists in their specific field presenting groundbreaking theories. Every week viewers will be challenged to consider new perspectives and confronted with ideas that push the envelope of conventional television.
