The documentary series uses genetics and genealogical research to uncover the family history of US celebrity guests. A book of life is given to each guest, and as the show proceeds, Henry Gates guides them through it, explaining the connections and methods used to establish them. Sometimes there are emotional reunions with long-lost relatives portrayed on the show.

Many people are interested in their own roots, in their family history, and the popular ancestry.com alone has over 14 million subscribers. This show offers an exciting mix of celebrity faces, and intertwines genealogy with historical events. This season Finding Your Roots will feature 28 new guests, among them Julianne Moore, Senator John McCain, Keenen Ivory Wayans and others. The docu-series holds an 8.1/10 rating on IMDb, which is high, especially for a non-scripted series. From all standpoints it is likely to be renewed and we`d be glad to hear an official confirmation of that.
