The program profiles counter culture personas who have, sometimes inadvertently, brought great change to society. Among the people featured is Alexander Shulgin, a chemist who invented MDMA as a remedy for psychotherapeutic use, and had no idea that it would become the trendiest club substance for years to come. Another person portrayed is Louis Moore, whose participation in a hijacking led to the implementation of the security screening routines at the airport.

Current season and renewal prospects

From Prohibition-era gang wars to computer hackers of the 1980s, the show explores a diverse range of historical figures. While their actions were morally ambiguous at the time, their consequences went far beyond their original motivations. I Am Rebel uses suspenseful reenactments and first-person interviews to drive the story forward ad create this strong, character-driven narrative. The program currently has a 0.1 rating and averages just under 300,000 viewers. There is no word on the renewal of this compelling series that offers an interesting twist on history, so please stay tuned for relevant announcements regarding the future of the series.
