In this week’s round-up, renewals are in store for TLC’s Something Borrowed, Something New and My Five Wives, WE tv’s Tamar & Vince, AMC’s Comic Book Men (pictured) and A+E Networks UK’s Fifth Gear, which has found a new home over at H2.

U.S. net TLC is bringing back Something Borrowed, Something New for a third season, beginning October 10 at 10 p.m. EST/PST. The Trium Entertainment-produced bridal series follows designer hosts Kelly Nishimoto and Sam Saboura as they help brides prepare for the weddings with either borrowed or new gowns.

In addition, the net has renewed My Five Wives, which will return on October 19 at 10 p.m. EST/PST. The Relativity Television-made series follows the polygamist lifestyle of Utah native Brady Williams and his growing brood. This season sees the patriarch try and maintain order in the household by instituting double-dates with his wives.

WE tv will also debut the season three premiere of Tamar & Vince on October 23 at 10 p.m. EST/PST. The series – produced by Magical Elves – centers on Tamar Braxton and her husband as they navigate the challenges of her music career and their family life.

Elsewhere, filmmaker Kevin Smith is back with a fourth season of his unscripted series for AMC, Comic Book Men, which is set to return on October 12 at midnight. The 16-episode order – produced by Smith-helmed prodco SModcast Pictures – will once again follow the cast of characters at a New Jersey comic book store.

Finally, over in the UK, A+E Networks UK has signed on for two seasons of motor series Fifth Gear for H2. The show was previously broadcast on Discovery Channel, where it aired since 2012 after originally being commissioned by Channel 5 back in 2002. UK indie North One Television will produce the two 6 x 60-minute series, which will air on H2 next spring. Hosted by Tiff Needell and Vicki Butler-Henderson, Fifth Gear features both vehicle reviews and challenges taken up by the two presenters.
