- Six-Part Series Premieres Sunday, February 12 at 10/9c -

(Silver Spring, Md.) - Throughout history, humankind has grappled with fears of Armageddon and the end of the world. For many, these theories are prophesized from stories originating hundreds of years ago; for others, they are fueled by real concerns about the world as we know it. Now, American Heroes Channel (AHC) explores the most noteworthy and notorious predictions of doom in the all-new series HOW THE WORLD ENDS, examining the widely-held beliefs of our imminent demise - from the technological, to the religious, to the ecological. The six-part series takes a closer look at the people, the science and the history surrounding each theory's impending countdown to destruction... and their feasibility of actually coming to fruition. HOW THE WORLD ENDS premieres worldwide on Sunday, February 12 at 10/9c, only on AHC.

Each hour-long episode of HOW THE WORLD ENDS explores the origin of one doomsday forecast and closely examines the impending timeline for destruction. Featuring interviews with passionate believers and expert naysayers alike, each theory is dissected and analyzed from the top down as viewers are encouraged to make their own unique conclusions about the prophecies.

The premiere episode of HOW THE WORLD ENDS titled Nostradamus digs into iconic prophet Nostradamus' cryptic theories that have predicted some of the most dramatic and tragic events in history with chilling accuracy: The French Revolution, World War II, Hiroshima and the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Many of his followers say that he was not sealing humanity to this fate, but rather warning against it. As some prepare for the end, others are determined to alter the course of history.
