In this week’s roundup, new seasons and renewals are on the way from Bravo, Velocity and Great American Country.

Bravo is set to bow a brand new season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (pictured) with cast members Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Buress, Kenya Moore, Phaedra Parks, Porsha Williams and Shereè Whitfield, who will return as a full-time housewife. The ninth season of the series sees Bailey embracing a new chapter in her life after coming to grips with the end of her marriage, and Buress and her husband still over-the-moon about the arrival of their new baby, Ace. The series is produced by True Entertainment, with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Carlos King, Anne Swan and Anthony Sylvester serving as executive producers, alongside Andy Cohen. Season nine of the series will premiere on Nov. 6.

Married to Medicine will also be back on Bravo, returning for a fourth season. It will feature Miss Quad embracing the role of auntie as her brother, his girlfriend and their new baby crash at her house for an extra-extended stay. Meanwhile, Lisa Nicole thinks it’s time for another baby with Darren, and Dr. Jackie has her mind set on her growing career and philanthropy goals while her husband, Curtis, is more interested in early retirement. Married to Medicine is produced by FreemantleMedia North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson, Nate Green, Mariah Huq, Annie Pandaru and Maryam Jahanbin serving as executive producers.

On Velocity, Bitchin’ Rides is set to return for a third season with self-made, custom-car fabricator Dave Kindig. The series’ latest season will tap into cars of all types and decades, from a 1929 Roadster to a 2014 Mercedes, while Kindig will also tackle some of his own personal projects, finally transforming a 1972 Bronco and tinkering with a 1962 Volkswagen Bus. The third season will premiere on Oct. 11 with back-to-back episodes. It’s produced by Fischer Productions, with Nick Meagher executive producing for Fischer and David Lee for Velocity.

Finally, Scripps Networks-owned Great American Country is hitting the road again with a fourth season of Going RV. Set to premiere in February 2017, the 14-episode season will follow families who decide to ditch ordinary daily life for an adventure out on the open road.
