On tap for this week’s edition of “Renewed and Returning” are series from Bravo, Netflix, DIY Network and Food Network.

Professional contractor Mike Holmes and his son, home renovation expert Mike Jr., will take on new projects when DIY Network’s Holmes & Holmes returns July 10, at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

The 12-episode season will feature the father and son as they buy and transform three worn properties into dream homes. But it won’t be all business as Mike Jr. plans his wedding to fiancée Lisa throughout the season. Holmes & Holmes is produced by Make It Right Productions.

Netflix’s Emmy-nominated series Last Chance U (pictured) returns July 20th to the streaming platform to give audiences an intense, unfiltered look at a rising junior college football program.

A Netflix production in association with Conde Nast Entertainment, Endgame Entertainment and One Potato Productions, the series spotlights the underdog Pirates of Independence Community College in Independence, Kansas, who have a chance to make a comeback after a losing streak — or so believes their bigger-than-life head coach, Jason Brown.

Elsewhere, Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race journeys through the Wild West this summer, starting July 26th at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Hosted by chef Tyler Florence, the culinary road trip hits hot spots in the Southwest to test the competitors’ cooking, selling and business skills. Each week, the seven teams hit a new city and food challenges, with the least successful truck heading home, until the one team is left driving to take home $50,000.

Lastly, Bravo Media’s Shahs of Sunset returns for a seventh season beginning August 2 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Best friends Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, Mike Shouhed, and Reza Farahan have gone through just about everything together, but the adventure is only beginning as they each embark on the newest chapter in their lives. Shahs of Sunset is produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions and Truly Original.
