In this week’s round-up, new seasons are on the way for series on Lifetime, History, Discovery and A&E.

A+E Networks Asia-owned net History will turn its lens on Asia’s best photographers in the latest edition of photo competition series Photo Face-Off. Award-winning photographer Justin Mott returns for the third season, slated to premiere later this year.

Produced by Beach House Productions, the five-part series is set to follow 13 amateur photographers from across Southeast Asia as they face off against Mott and each other in a raft of photography-based challenges designed to test the shooters’ creativity, skill and technical knowledge.

Elsewhere, Discovery Channel will rev up with bigger builds on season three of automotive series Misfit Garage. The Pilgrim Media Group-made series will document the Fired Up Garage – down a crew member – as they rush to complete a 1956 Ford truck in a 48-hour period, while restoring a 1964 Ford Galaxie 500 ahead of a looming deadline for the Barrett-Jackson car auction. The season bows July 11 at 9 p.m. EST/PST as part of Discovery’s ‘Motor Mondays.’

Lifetime is bringing back Little Women: LA for a fifth season on July 13 at 9 p.m. EST/PST. The Kinetic Content-produced series will follow the group of friends as new babies enter the picture for many of the ladies and force face-to-face confrontations about their friendships. Meanwhile, the U.S. net will also dive deeper into the relationships and rivalries among the ladies of Little Women: Atlanta in season two, slated to air on July 13 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

A&E’s critically acclaimed Born This Way, meanwhile, will return for its sophomore season with a 10-episode order on July 26 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

The Bunim/Murray Productions-made series will chronicle the lives of seven young adults born with Down syndrome, along with their family and friends in Southern California, as they further explore their personal independence and form new relationships with local community members.
