Netflix will be diving into ancient history, and some of the most obscure historical theories with its new docuseries Ancient Apocalypse set to arrive on Netflix globally on November 11th, 2022. 

The series will be akin to Ancient Aliens, which regularly gets new season updates on Netflix and has featured in the top 10s in multiple regions.

Here’s the synopsis that’s showing on the Netflix page for the upcoming series:

“What if everything we know about prehistoric humans is wrong? Journalist Graham Hancock visits archeological sites around the world to uncover whether a civilization far more advanced than we ever believed possible existed thousands of years ago.”

8 episodes will be released on November 11th.

Graham Hancock is a prolific writer and author who has produced a dozen titles and written for The Times and The Guardian.

His published works include Magician of the Gods, America Before: The Key to Earth’s Lost Civilization, and most recently, Visionary: The Definitive Edition of Supernatural.

Much of Hancock’s work is heavily disputed, including the idea of there was an advanced civilization that disappeared 12,000 years ago.

Hancock’s son, Sean Hancock, coincidentally works at Netflix as a senior manager of unscripted originals.
