On tap for this week’s edition of ‘Renewed and Returning’ are new seasons of series on Science Channel, VH1 and ITV.

First up is a new season of Secrets of the Underground (pictured), which returns to Science Channel on Oct 28. at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

The series follows adventurer biologist and tech fanatic Rob Nelson and his new co-host, geophysicist Stefan Burns, as they explore some of the world’s most notorious Underground Legends. The new season features the pair looking into the rumored Nazi Gold Train, America’s Atlantis, the Lost Temple Treasures of Jerusalem and Nikola Tesla’s buried master plans. Secrets of the Underground is produced for Science Channel by Lucky 8 TV.

What on Earth? is also returning to Science Channel next for its fourth season.

Produced by Wag TV, the series uses state-of-the-art imaging technology, expert analysis from leading scientists, and hands-on investigation to find out more about the breathtaking and sometimes bizarre images of Earth captured by satellites. What On Earth? premieres on Oct. 17 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Elsewhere, the odd couple of cooking series is returning to small screens this month with the second season of VH1′s Martha & Snoop’s Potluck Dinner Party.

Produced by Sequential Brands Group, Merry Jane and 495 Productions, the pair will continue to light up the kitchen by putting a personal spin on favorite dishes and creating themed meals with celebrity friends, including Jamie Foxx, Terrence Howard, Kelly Rowland and RuPaul. The Emmy-nominated series will begin its second season on Oct. 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

Finally, ITV has commissioned a third installment of The Mummy Diaries. The series, produced by Potato and ITV Studios, follows British TV personality Sam Faiers and her sister Billie as they try to balance careers with motherhood. A premiere date has yet to be set for season three.
