In this week’s round-up, new seasons are on the way for series on Bravo, Food Network, National Geographic and Investigation Discovery.

Bravo’s favorite Southern sophisticates return for the 11th season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta (pictured) on Nov. 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

This season features returning cast members Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes and Porsha Williams and will be joined by newest housewives Eva Marcille and Shamari DeVoe. Marlo Hampton and Tanya Sam join the season as friends. The Real Housewives of Atlanta is produced by Truly Original.

Elsewhere, food blogger and best-selling cookbook author Molly Yeh will return to the screen with a second season run of Food Network’s Girl Meets Farm.

The 13-episode season from Bodega Pictures, which launches Nov. 11 at 11 a.m. ET/PT, features Yeh in her Midwest farmhouse where she offers up her unique spin on comfort foods inspired by her Jewish and Chinese background and her Midwestern upbringing. Yeh offers up fresh food ideas for Thanksgiving, the holiday season, get-togethers and family visits.

National Geographic, meanwhile, is bringing back its documentary-scripted hybrid series Mars for a sophomore season this November.

Produced by RadicalMedia and Imagine Entertainment, season two will examine the friction between science and industry on Mars and what happens once humanity has settled on the red planet. Expert ‘Big Thinkers’ include Elon Musk, Bill Nye and Ellen Stofan who weigh in on the conflicts between science and industry. Mars returns to Nat Geo on Nov. 12 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Finally, true crime network Investigation Discovery (ID) has greenlit a second season of the Khloé Kardashian-executive produced series, Twisted Sisters. 

In every hour-long episode, audiences go inside the outlandish crimes committed by sisters and investigate the how and why this duo has descended into darkness. Family and friend divulge what triggered the sisters’ path towards a life of crime while investigators and law enforcement recount firsthand their unraveling of the case and try to make sense of the crimes committed.

Season two of Twisted Sisters, produced by Red Arrow Studios-owned 44 Blue Productions, will premiere on ID in Summer 2019.
