Disney has announced that a brand new “Explorer” special called “Lost In The Arctic”, which will be hitting our screens this August,

Sir John Franklin set off from England in 1845 with two ships and 129 men to be the first to navigate the Northwest Passage, a new trade route over the top of the world, when Franklin’s ships vanished without a trace. Now, a team of explorers attempts to solve the mystery by retracing Franklin’s route in search of his long-lost tomb.

This award-winning series presents compelling untold stories and covers a wide array of provocative subjects. “Explorer” aired for 25 years and was the longest-running documentary series in cable TV history — before being relaunched in 2015 after a five-year hiatus and ran for two more years before stopping.  National Geographic brought back the series last year with “Explorer: The Last Tepui”.

“Explorer: Lost in the Arctic” will debut in the United States on Thursday, 24th August 2023, at 10/9c, and it will be available to stream on Disney+ and Hulu, the next day on Friday, 25th August 2023.    No international release details have been announced.
