Julia Morris, Peter Garrett, Delta Goodrem, Rachel Griffiths, Jane Turner and Shane Jacobson have joined season eight of genealogy series Who Do You Think You Are?

The eight part season, premiering September 13 on SBS, sees eight Australians following the trail of their own ancestors.

This season includes stories about slavery, kidnapping, cannibalism and the IRA, according to a statement released by SBS.

"The series reflects the countless different paths that led the way to modern Australia, with tales from the grandeur of the Prussian court to the swelter of Pacific Islands, via the midnight sun in Scandinavia and the vaults of the Bank of England. The illustrious protagonists learn of the sacrifices their forebears made, overcoming hurdles and heartbreak to allow their offspring to shine and help make up the proud patchwork of diversity that is Australia in the 21st century."

Who Do You Think You Are? is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia for SBS.

The series will be available on DVD from December 2016.
