In this week’s round-up, new seasons are on the way for series on Travel Channel, FYI, Bravo Media and American Heroes Channel.

Travel Channel is bringing back Hotel Impossible for season seven in April. The Anthony Melchiorri-hosted (pictured) series finds the salty host traveling to hotels around the U.S. and helping owners revive and repair damaged and run-down properties. Melchiorri – who has more than 20 years of experience in the hospitality sector – will this season travel to Anchorage, Alaska; Lihue, Hawaii; and Rockland, Maine, among other locations. The Atlas Media-produced series makes its Impossible return on April 18 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

FYI is bringing back its original series Tiny House Nation later this month. The popular program on downsizing homeowners – hosted by John Weisbarth and renovation expert Zack Giffin – returns for its third season on March 26 at 9 p.m. EST/PST. Produced by Loud TV, Tiny House Nation finds inventively small spaces around the U.S. and profiles the people living in them, while helping them build their tiny dream homes. The forthcoming season will feature NBA star Matt Bonner and his family.

Bravo Media has signed on for a new season of The Real Housewives of New York City. The Shed Media-produced program returns with Bethenny Frankel, Carole Radziwill, Dorinda Medley, Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan and new housewife, socialite Julianne “Jules” Wainstein.

To mark the new season, Bravo Media is taking Housewives on the road through a new partnership with New York’s On Location Tours. Beginning April 6, the company will host bus tours to locations from the show, including unforgettable moments from past seasons and sneak peeks of places significant in the new season.

Real Housewives returns on April 6 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

Finally, American Heroes Channel is readying the second season of What History Forgot. The Atlas Media-produced program, hosted by high school teacher and history buff Joe Moniaci, explores the important historical stories that are rarely featured in school textbooks. This season includes episodes on the secrets at New York City’s Madison Square Garden and the U.S. internment camps during the Second World War. What History Forgot returns tomorrow (March 5) at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
