Project Blue Book premiered on the History channel on January 19th, 2019. The second season first aired on January 21, 2020. Both seasons consists of 10 episodes each.  Unfortutately the show got cancelled after two seasons in May 2020. A petition has been launched to support the creators in finding a new home for this TV show but I can't see that have any chance of succeeding. 


The show revolves around the real-life Project Blue Book, a secret series of investigations into supposed UFO encounters and unexplained phenomena undertaken by the United States Air Force with skeptical astrophysics professor (and eventual ufologist) Dr. J. Allen Hynek in the 1950s and 1960s. With his partner, Air Force veteran Captain Michael Quinn, they investigate sightings across the U.S., and Dr. Hynek discovers that not everything can be explained by science.

I found it to be very entertaining, reminded me of the X-Files a bit, conspiracies, alien encounters, military obstructions, great time period and interesting lead characters. Although based on real events it is of course still fiction. It's a shame it got cancelled so quickly. What is also a shame is that the first season has been released on Blu-ray but the second season has only been released on DVD. Really hate it when they do that!


Plot (IMDb) - In this conspiratorial Sci-Fi thriller set some time after WWII and loosely based on the US government's real life Project Blue Book, Captain Michael Quinn and Dr. Allen Hynek are tasked by the US Air Force to investigate reports of UFOs and debunk them, or at least come up with rational explanations for them. While Quinn, a smooth and tough military type, doesn't care about anything other than doing the job he was given, at first, the more skeptical Hynek quickly becomes convinced that some kind of deadly conspiracy is afoot. Meanwhile, as Cold War paranoia spreads among the population, a charismatic blonde with an agenda of her own befriends Hynek's lonely wife.
