MTV UK’s Geordie Shore (pictured), W Network/HGTV’s Property Brothers and Food Network Canada’s Top Chef Canada are among the reality series making renewals news this week.

The British version of Jersey Shore will return for a fourth season. Viewers can expect a cast shake-up come season four, but first up will be season three – Geordie Shore: Chaos in Cancun – which will premiere on June 26.

Fans of the Jennifer Lopez exec-produced reality series South Beach Tow can breathe easy. TruTV has ordered a 13-episode second season that will begin airing in the fall. Centered around the family-run Tremont Towing company, the series is a joint production between Lopez’s Nuyorican Productions and Bodega Pictures.

North of the border, Food Network Canada has greenlit a third season of Shaw Media and Insight Productions’ Top Chef Canada that will begin airing in 2013.

Cineflix’s Property Brothers will also return for a third season. The W Network in Canada and HGTV in the United States have ordered 26 one-hour episodes of the home renovation show, which sees brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott travel Stateside for half the season to help Americans transform their fixer-uppers into dream homes.

Finally, UKTV has renewed British product placement series Find My Past. Produced by Lion Television and hosted by Chris Hollins, the 10 x 60-minutes series shows how three people are connected through ancestral links to a famous event from history. The next season will debut in the fourth quarter.
