—Ann Curry Returns With a Second Season of Unforgettable Stories—
Join Ann Curry for a new season of dramatic reunions of people whose lives crossed at pivotal moments. View history through their eyes and hear stories of heroism, hope and the forging of unbreakable bonds.
“We knew these stories would be powerful, but we didn’t know they would resonate with viewers as much as they have,” said Curry. “Several times a week now, wherever I go, people stop me to say they’ve been touched by these stories. There is something about seeing others rise when faced with challenges that wake you up to what is possible in you. The most common comment I get is, ‘This is what we need to hear now.’”
This season, WE’LL MEET AGAIN travels across the country and around the world, once again helping people find that special someone whose actions changed the course of their lives, searching for clues in marriage records and war and immigration documents, and combing archives to reunite those separated by time and distance.
