The series, which was recently renewed for a second season, is produced by Alleycats Films for BBC Four.

Lost Relics of the Knights Templar is produced by eOne, Fired Up Films and Krempelwood with funding from Northern Ireland Screen for the A+E Networks UK channel Sky HISTORY. It has been licensed internationally to Canada (TELUS) and Portugal (RTP), as well as debuted in the U.K. on Sky HISTORY.
