For several years, FRONTLINE has collaborated with ProPublica to investigate the rise of extremism in America. In the aftermath of the Jan. 6 assault on the U.S. Capitol, FRONTLINE, ProPublica and Berkeley Journalism’s Investigative Reporting Program teamed up to examine how far-right extremist groups had evolved in the wake of the deadly 2017 Charlottesville rally — and the threat they posed.

An updated version of the documentary airing Jan. 4, 2022, examines the latest developments and where the movement may be headed a year after the attack on the Capitol.
