The series will premiere later this year on Discovery. "Every now and then, the headlines catch up to a TV show and make it relevant in ways that no one imagined. With essential work in the news, it's impossible not to think of Dirty Jobs, and for the last year, people have asked me every day if the show would make a comeback. Today, I'm happy to say the answer is yes. In other words, just when I thought I was out, they sucked me back in!" Mike Rowe said. The upcoming season of DIRTY JOBS finds Mike getting back to work and getting his hands even dirtier than before - heading deep in the southern bayous to high up in America's remote Badlands. The dirtier the job, the better as Mike tackles each job with his typical candid, no non-sense take and wry sense of humor. Mike plans to lend a hand to those on the frontlines - protecting the nation from invasions, even if it involves glowing scorpions and giant iguanas. The series will also follow Mike as he helps protect Rocky Mountain motorists from cliffside tree disasters and joins first responders as they hone their abilities on the most life-like medial emergency dummies in the world. Each episode will showcase the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs. The popular franchise, which first aired on Discovery from 2005 to 2013 and rebooted last summer as a limited series (DIRTY JOBS: ROW'D TRIP), will show Mike back in action as he showcases the unsung heroes of this country.

Bering Sea Gold

Discovery • 2012 • IMDb: 6.7
bering-sea-gold-series-date

The cards have been dealt, and now, for the fearless miners of Nome, it's time to go all-in. Relentless snowstorms and hypothermic temperatures, new crew members and shifting power dynamics along with weather-induced equipment malfunctions leave the miners dealing with more than they bargained for this ice mining season. But with the price of gold remaining high, folding is not an option. This winter, the miners who dared to take a seat at the table will learn their fate, grinding through the brutal winter to see if they've got a winning hand... or whether the biggest gambles of their careers leave them in the muck. Nome, Alaska has one trick up its sleeve: bombarding the gold grounds with blizzards that are dumping more snow onto the ice than miners have ever seen. With these brutal conditions hitting every few days, mining shacks and gear are getting snowed-in, forcing the miners to dig out and haul their equipment as fast as they can for any opportunity to mine before the next blizzard hits. One thing's a given this season: these miners are ready to up the ante no matter what comes between them and the potential payoff of a lifetime. Shawn Pomrenke returns with his eyes on the prize, diving into the frigid unknown, fighting windchills of 50 below, alongside diver Joe Fullwood. With a problematic air compressor, Shawn faces challenges right out of the gate. But his intuition for gold rarely leaves him empty handed, and he's chasing a golden jackpot he believes lies in an ancient river bed. Yet everyone knows that winter's cruel dealings level the playing field for all miners and even Mr. Gold himself is not safe from the fury. Mastermind Zeke Tenhoff, whose last ice mining season caused him to pack his bags, is coming in fresh and determined with a new crew, consisting of his other brother Gabe, friend Shlomo, and Gabe's mischievous canine, Stormy. And what kind of ice mining season would it be if Steve Riedel didn't make an appearance? He'll lend a hand to Zeke in any way he can, even if that means serving as the pizza delivery guy. As he runs into stingy waters, Zeke will have to persuade Shawn to grant him access to the Tomcod. Will this business relationship prove profitable or disastrous? Kris Kelly has more weighing on him than ever before -- both on the ice and off. While trying to make this season his most successful yet, he's gone in over his head on expensive new mining equipment and is also preparing for fatherhood. The soon-to-be dad must learn how to balance his high-stakes mining season along with caring for a newborn. Is he ready for the biggest journey of his life, or will the pressure cause him to fold? This season's wild card Vernon Adkison is on a hot streak on his coveted Claim 56, but he must contend with a lead in the ice threatening his entire operation. On some of the best gold of his life, Vernon pushes the crew and equipment to keep mining, as they move closer and closer to the open water at the edge of the ice. Will lady luck continue to bless Vernon or betray him when he least expects it? With every miner seated at the table and placing their most audacious bets, only time will tell whether Nome will call their bluffs or give them a chance to score the ultimate payoff.
