On tap for this week’s edition of ‘Renewed and Returning’  are new seasons of series for Lifetime, CTV, CNBC and more.

Dance Moms returned to Lifetime Aug. 1 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The dance studio is buzzing with rumors about Abby Lee Miller’s court sentencing. With time counting down, the moms are desperate to know what Miller’s plans are for the future, but her insistence that nothing is wrong creates havoc for the team.

Proper Television’s MasterChef Canada (pictured) will return for a fifth season on CTV. The new 12-episode season follows home cooks in their culinary quest to win the grand prize of winning the MasterChef Canada title and a cash prize.

Elsewhere, CNBC has renewed the original series, Adventure Capitalists, for a second season. In each one-hour episode, four separate entrepreneurs showcase products designed for outdoor adventure.

Premiering Oct. 10 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, the six-episode season is produced by 3 Ball Entertainment.

Love Island will return to ITV2 in 2018 for a fifth season of singletons searching for love in paradise. Produced in the UK by ITV Studios Entertainment and Motion Content Group, the first international version premieres in Germany on RTL2 in September.
