In this week’s renewals’ round-up, new seasons are on the way for series on DIY Network, Discovery, Fox and TLC. 

DIY Network has greenlit 26 more episodes of the home reno series Barnwood Builders (pictured). Set in West Virginia, the show stars Mark Bowe and his team of master craftsmen as they carefully deconstruct centuries-old barns and cabins to build modern homes.

New episodes of Barnwood Builders will premiere later in 2017.

Discovery has picked up another season of Naked and Afraid. Each episode features one man and one woman as they take on the toughest survival challenges, from making it out alive under an active volcano to skinning pelts with bare hands to ward off hypothermia.

Naked and Afraid is produced for Discovery Channel by Renegade 83. Executive producers include David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe, Steve Rankin and Mathilde Bittner. For Discovery, Denise Contis and Joseph Boyle are executive producers.

Naked and Afraid airs Sunday, March 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Discovery.

Fox’s dance competition show, So You Think You Can Dance returns for its 14th season in summer 2017.

Highly skilled dancers between the ages of 18 to 30 showcase their moves in various styles of dance, including tap, hip hop and ballroom. The top ten are paired up with professional dancers who guide them through the competition as they vie for the title of America’s Favorite Dancer.

So You Think You Can Dance is produced by 19 Entertainment and Dick Clark Productions. Nigel Lythgoe, Allen Shapiro, Barry Adelma and Jeff Thacker are the series executive producers.

A second season of TLC’s Skin Tight returns with new stories of people who are looking to change their lives through skin removal surgery.

Each of the ten one-hour episodes documents the stories of two individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight but who still feel trapped in their own skin. They entrust Dr. Younan Nowzaradan and other doctors from across the country as they undergo skin removal surgery, with their newly transformed selves revealed at the end of every episode.

In addition to the new episodes, three one-hour special episodes will air, where they check in with a few of the people from the series to see if their weight has been maintained and how their life and sense of self has changed.

Skin Tight is produced by Megalomedia for TLC and returns Wednesday, March 1 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
