We’ll Meet Again Returns for Season 2
We’ll Meet Again returns for a second season of compelling human stories of hope, courage and resilience, exploring some of history’s most dramatic events through the personal experiences of those who lived through them. Executive produced and reported by Ann Curry, We’ll Meet Again tells the stories of ordinary people caught up in the tides of history who are seeking to be reunited with those who helped them – either physically or emotionally – survive these transformational events.
Season Two premieres Tuesday, November 13, at 8pm on ThinkTV16 and CET. Some of the stories in Season Two were submitted by viewers during and following Season One.
“We knew these stories would be powerful, but we didn’t know they would resonate with viewers as much as they have,” Curry said in a press release. “Several times a week now, wherever I go, people stop me to say they’ve been touched by these stories. There is something about seeing others rise when faced with challenges that wake you up to what is possible in you. The most common comment I get is, ‘This is what we need to hear now.’”
This season, We’ll Meet Again travels across the country and around the world, once again helping people find that special someone whose actions changed the course of their lives, searching for clues in marriage records and war and immigration documents, and combing archives to reunite those separated by time and distance. Featured are stories of a Cuban-American who escaped during the 1980 Mariel Boatlift and never forgot the brave skipper who piloted him to a new life in the U.S.; a woman looking for the best friend whose family shielded her during the great Alaskan earthquake of 1964; two Vietnam veterans, one longing to reconnect with the helicopter pilot who rescued him from enemy fire, the other wanting to thank the doctor who saved his leg; and a Holocaust survivor hoping to discover what happened to a fellow survivor he befriended in a displaced persons camp.
“We are delighted to welcome Ann back for a second season of We’ll Meet Again,” said Paula Kerger, PBS President and CEO. “Her exceptional reporting, strong intuition and grace are on full display as she reunites people whose paths have crossed at pivotal moments."
