Lost Relics of the Knights Templar Sequel in the Works


A+E Networks UK has commissioned a sequel to Lost Relics of the Knights Templar, produced by Fired Up Films and Krempelwood.

Titled Lost Relic Hunters, the new series will once again follow the work of antiquities collector Hamilton White and his friend and business partner Carl Cookson. It is set to launch on Sky HISTORY in September.

The series will see White and Cookson back on the hunt for relics and historical pieces that could change our understanding of some of the most iconic periods of British and European history—if they can be authenticated. They are aided in their international adventures by cultural and art historian Dr. Janina Ramirez.

Lost Relic Hunters will premiere on Sky HISTORY on September 6, the HISTORY Channel in the Netherlands and Belgium on September 16 and in the Nordics on September 21. The series is being distributed by eOne.

Dr. Ramirez said: “These objects speak to us across the centuries and tell us stories. I’m delighted to help listen to them, learn from them and take you on this journey back through time with us. I’m very excited to be joining Carl and Hamilton on their quests to uncover the origins of these remarkable antiquities.”

Dan Korn, VP of programming at A+E Networks UK, said: “We’re delighted to be working once again with Carl and Hamilton on a fascinating and priceless collection of antiquities, which, if authenticated, could change history. We’re also excited to be welcoming Dr. Janina Ramirez to Sky HISTORY, whose expertise and energy adds a new dimension to Carl and Hamilton’s continuing adventures.”

Fired Up Films’ Jon-Barrie Waddell added: “We are thrilled to be working with Krempelwood, Dan and Diana [Carter] at A+E Networks UK and Sky HISTORY once more on this fascinating series. Lost Relics of the Knights Templar introduced Hamilton and Carl to new audiences, and we cannot wait to see the extraordinary people, places and objects that they uncover this time around.”
