Mr. Bentley will also be added to the producers' team next season and says, "With casting already underway, my goal for this season is to really reach deeper into the G culture to find young men who society has discounted or cast aside, and give these men an opportunity to turn their lives around". The network is scheduled to air 10 new episodes beginning in Q1.
