NBC has announced that Who Do You Think You Are? will be making a return to the network for its 12th season. The veteran genealogy documentary series has spent the last eight seasons on TLC, with its most-recent season airing back in December.

Co-executive produced by Lisa Kudrow, the show follows celebrities as they trace back through their family trees to learn about their roots. Adapted from a British format for US audiences, the series first premiered on NBC in 2010, where it aired for three seasons before being cancelled in 2012. TLC wasted no time in snapping it up for 2013, where it has held a regular presence until now.

NBC has ordered a reported 13 episodes for Season 12 of Who Do You Think You Are?. That will give the series its largest episode count to-date. A time frame for its return has not been announced.
