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

NBCUniversal-owned lifestyle network Bravo Media has recommissioned Married To Medicine for a sixth season.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America, the series features Dr. Jacqueline Walters, Dr. Simone Whitmore, Dr. Heavenly Kimes, Toya Bush-Harris, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and Mariah Huq, who rejoins the group, where friendships and marriages are on the line. Married to Medicine returns to Bravo on Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Discovery-owned network TLC, meanwhile, has renewed its freshman series Dr. Pimple Popper with new episodes slated to premiere in January 2019.

Dr. Pimple Popper features dermatologist and social media star Dr. Sandra Lee as she treats patients with unusual skin conditions and helps them to lead a life free of embarrassment. The series is produced by Ping Pong Productions for TLC.

Discovery has also renewed the home reno series Boise Boys (pictured) on its home care network HGTV for a second season.

Slated to premiere in late spring 2019, the series follows best friends Luke Caldwell, a designer, and Clint Robertson, a licensed contractor, as they revamp dilapidated properties into resale-ready homes in Boise, Idaho. High Noon Entertainment produces the series.

Finally, WE tv is returning its docuseries Bridezillas from September Films for another season.

The series, which is slated to bow in 2019, follows all the wedding-planning dysfunction that comes along with getting married. The fresh 10-episode season spotlights women who have turned into “bridezillas” as they prep for their upcoming nuptials. Each episode features two brides and grooms and how the wedding has taken over their lives.
