After a years-long hiatus, scientist and explorer Albert Lin is coming back to National Geographic with a fresh new season of Lost Cities, renamed “Lost Cities Revealed.” In the past, Lin, who is probably the closest we’ll ever get to a real-life Indiana Jones, has traveled everywhere from the ancient Knights Templar in Israel to the fabled jungle city of El Dorado in Colombia to unearth history’s biggest mysteries and architectural wonders. This time, he’s going deeper and further than ever before into forgotten cities that have literally yet to be revealed (NatGeo has yet to announce the whereabouts of the latest season).

Where to watch Lost Cities Revealed with Albert Lin Season 2

The second season of Lost Cities Revealed will air on National Geographic TV on Thanksgiving Night, November 23 at 8/9c. The episodes will then be available to stream the week after, November 29, on Hulu and Disney+.

There are three ways to watch Lost Cities Revealed season 2: live on National Geographic TV or the next week on Hulu and Disney+.

“What is Hulu?” – said no one after the year 2010, but here is a refresher and a link to subscribe:

Hulu

Hulu may be on the cheaper side at just $7.99/month, but the on-demand streaming service boasts an ever-growing catalog of original series like The Handmaid’s Tale, primetime hits like Modern Family, and BBC imports like Killing Eve. It’s also where you’ll find FX’s critically acclaimed titles like Atlanta, Fargo, and Reservation Dogs. Hulu runs on ads, but if you can’t stand commercials, you can go ad-free for $17.99/month.

Some viewers didn’t like that the Lost City series featured so much of Lin, but others argued that it was this exact same thing that made Lost City so watchable. Lin was full of questions and personality, which shaped the show into what it is: informative but entertaining, deep but easy, and with the advanced tech involved, historical but forward-looking. There are varying opinions on Lost City, but you can watch them yourself to see how they hold up.

The first season is available to watch on Disney+

You can stream all of Lost Cities’ previous episodes, along with specials like Lost Cities: The Great Flood and Lost Cities: Megacity of the Maya Warrior King, on Disney+.

Disney+
