"Better Late Than Never"
2-hour Season Premiere Monday, January 1 from 9 to 11 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          NBC’s hit series “Better Late Than Never” is back for season two with more fun, comedy and adventure as the five globe-trotting stars — Henry Winkler, William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and comedian Jeff Dye — set off on a wildly entertaining journey to Munich, Berlin, Lithuania, Sweden, Barcelona, Madrid and Morocco.

          In the season premiere, “I’m a Viking,” a search of Terry's Viking roots uncovers a "Viking Island" that leads to a series of challenges that aren't for the faint of heart. But it's not all fun and games when the friends are confronted with the world's smelliest dish and a strict etiquette class that turns into a complete disaster. George, the world's biggest ABBA fan, gets the surprise of a lifetime by meeting founding member Bjorn. "Better Late Than Never" stars Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye.
 

           Then in the 10 PM episode, “I’m King of the Castle,” Bill's in the driver seat as he takes the guys to Lithuania, a place they've never planned to go but it happens to be where his parents grew up. While he seeks to find his family connection, George discovers his own special relationship through, of all things, a goat beauty contest. Bill's big plans lead the guys to stay in an uncomfortable haunted castle and an unpleasant visit to a neighbor country, Russia. "Better Late Than Never" stars Henry Winkler, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, George Foreman and Jeff Dye.

        Navigating their way through seven cities and five countries, the five friends will immerse themselves in the culture, customs and traditions of each new destination. They will sample crazy culinary delicacies, participate in Oktoberfest in Munich, celebrate World Pride Day, ride camels in the middle of the Sahara Desert and face off against a bull in the oldest matador ring in Madrid.

          Trip highlights also include meeting popular ABBA member Björn Ulvaeus in Sweden and joining him for a surprise performance for hundreds of adoring fans, exploring the African gateway city of Morocco by motorbike, leaving their mark on the historic Berlin Wall, parasailing in Barcelona and much more.

          Comedy abounds, from the five getting lost in Russia, Dye helping Bradshaw get “beach ready” in Barcelona with a body wax, picnicking in a nude park in Munich and recreating their own “Julie Andrews – The Hills Are Alive” moment from the iconic scene in “The Sound of Music.”

          Their international travels also include moving and heartfelt moments as a few cast members reconnect with their pasts, from Winkler retracing the path of family members in Berlin, some of whom were killed in Auschwitz, to Foreman’s emotional meeting with the Lithuanian family of the man who launched his legendary career.

          Special guest stars, including David Hasselhoff and Al Roker, as well as other surprises add to the fun as the five men experience incredible adventure, engaging camaraderie and amazing destinations around the world.
