In this week’s Renewed and Returning round-up, new seasons are on the way for unscripted series across We tv, Food Network, HGTV and Facebook Watch.
Mama June and her brood are back on the third season of We tv’s Mama June: From Not to Hot beginning tonight (March 15) at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
June Shannon aka “Mama June” undertook major weight loss a few years ago but may be slipping back into old habits that threaten her hard-won success. Shannon is now partaking in a slim down challenge with rival Jennifer and faces unexpected pregnancy news while her boyfriend Geno is in trouble with the law. Meanwhile, over the course of the 10-episode season, Shannon’s kids embark on teen romances, career opportunities and independent living. Mama June: From Not to Hot is produced by Thinkfactory Media.
Food blogger and best-selling cookbook author Molly Yeh returns for season three of the Bodega Pictures-made Girl Meets Farm on Food Network.
Starting March 31 at 11 a.m. ET/PT, viewers will be transported to Yeh’s Midwest farmhouse where the chef is expecting her first child. From make-ahead meals and family recipes, to Yeh’s baby shower, audiences will follow the food blogger on her baby journey. In the premiere episode, Yeh puts her own spin classic dishes with a menu for her family that includes her Chicago Dog Meatloaf with a mustard glaze and her dad’s favorite coconut cream pie. Further episode themes include make-ahead meals in anticipation of her baby and multi-generational favorites.
Discovery-owned cable network HGTV, meanwhile, has ordered a sophomore season run of the renovation series Windy City Rehab from Sacramento, California-based Big Table Media.
Windy City Rehab will continue to document designer and real estate developer Alison Victoria’s (pictured) efforts as she renovates dilapidated properties in the Chicago area to attract high-end buyers or risk losing her substantial investments.
Finally, digital streaming platform Facebook Watch is preparing more than 20 new episodes of Very Tall Productions’ talk-show Red Table Talk for May.
Hosted by Jada Pinkett Smith, daughter Willow Smith and Adrienne Banfield-Norris (Pinkett’s mother), the multi-generational series will continue to encourage conversations with celebrity guests around such important issues as addiction, loss, domestic abuse, race relations and more.
