On tap for this week’s edition of ‘Renewed and Returning’ are new seasons of series on Discovery, TLC, WE tv and more.

Diesel Brothers returns to Discovery Channels ‘Motor Mondays’ Sept. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Produced by Magilla Entertainment, the series follows long-time buddies Heavy D and Diesel Dave who have started their own business by purchasing used, or broken down trucks and tricking them out for sales, while posting their pranks and stunt driving on social media.

Also heading to Discovery is the original Canadian series Highway Thru Hell (pictured) which is back for a sixth season Sept. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

B.C.’s heavy rescue operators face vicious crashes and treacherous recoveries to keep vital trucking corridors open. Produced by Great Pacific Media, the new season kicks off with a two-part premiere.

Meanwhile, TLC is bringing back the wedding themed competition series Four Weddings. The brand-new season from ITV Entertainment will feature four friends or family members who are all planning to get married. Each episode will feature four new brides judging each other’s weddings in different categories such as venue, food and dress. The highest scoring couple will receive a honeymoon vacation prize.

Also on tap for TLC is My Giant Life which returns for a third season Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Being extraordinarily tall will help anyone stand out, but for the women on My Giant Life, their height sometimes is the only thing people seem to notice. Haleigh, Alicia Jay, Katja, Lindsay, Krista and Coco will take viewers inside their everyday lives as they deal with issues that far surpass height. Workaholic Productions produces the series for TLC.

WE tv has renewed Mama June: From Not to Hot for a ten-episode second season beginning in early 2018. Produced by Thinkfactory Media, season two follows Mama June as she tries to navigate life a year after losing hundreds of pounds. She gets caught up with adult pageant-mania, ready to compete against the beautiful women who shunned her before her weight loss. However, it doesn’t take long for June to realize that her weight was the least of her problems, as she now faces decisions that could tear her family apart.

Britain Comedy Central UK has re-commissioned The Chris Ramsey Show for a second season. Commissioned as a 10 x 30-minute show, the Avalon-produced series will continue to involve Ramsey with big name guests and ingenious games. The show, which will be filmed with a live audience, will air in early 2018 on Comedy Central UK.
