Networks in the U.S. are re-investing in Treehouse Masters, Farm Kings and RuPaul’s Drag Race, while TLC has renewed a trio of docuseries.

U.S. cable network Animal Planet has tapped another season of Treehouse Masters (pictured above) from Stiletto Television.

Season two, premiering on January 10 at 10 p.m. EST/PST, will follow Pete Nelson and his team of craftsmen as they build homes in treetops, including an homage to the Indiana Jones movies, a treehouse for an award-winning country music duo, a world-class skier, and the highest treehouse built to date.

Seven episodes and an Ultimate Treehouses II special will air this winter, as well as a pre-season special, Santa’s Workshop, on December 23, with 13 more episodes set for the summer.

On sister network TLC, My 600-lb Life returns for a second season, while Here Comes Honey Boo Boo and Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor also return.

My 600-lb Life premieres January 7 at 9 p.m. EST/PST. The eight-part series, produced by Megalomedia, follows the lives of eight people who each weigh over 600 pounds, as they try to lose weight over the course of a year.

Authentic Entertainment’s Here Comes Honey Boo Boo will follow the family as they go on a road trip, while The Weinstein Company and Jupiter Entertainment’s Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor will see a rivalry between Myrtle Manor and its fellow trailer park, Village Creek.

Both return on January 16.

On Great American Country, Farm Kings has been renewed for a third season, set to premiere on December 19.

Farm Kings follows the life of a farm family, and this season includes a wedding, a pie bake-off, a demolition derby, and more. The series is produced by Stage 3 Productions.

Over on Logo TV, RuPaul’s Drag Race returns for a sixth season, with 14 drag performers looking to win US$100,000 cash and the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”

RuPaul’s Drag Race is produced by World of Wonder Productions.
