"AMERICAN PICKERS"

All New Season, All New Night Premiering Wednesday, October 9 at 9pm ET on HISTORY

New York, September 19, 2013 - AMERICAN PICKERS returns for an all new season, on an all new night. HISTORY's blockbuster series is moving to Wednesday nights at 9pm ET, beginning October 9.

Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz are once again searching the back roads, junkyards, and filled-to-the-brim barns for "rusty gold." Part sleuths, part antiques experts, and part cultural historians - Mike and Frank's adventures bring them to small towns across the country in search of weird and wonderful Americana. As professional "pickers," these childhood buddies comb through memorabilia and artifacts, hoping to find treasures among the trash.

In this new season, viewers will travel along with Mike and Frank on a European adventure as they pick their way thru Italy and England. In Europe, the guys struggle with the language barrier and have to rely on translators who barely speak English to negotiate their deals. They find rare cars and motorcycles that you won't find back in the states but they aren't able to seal every negotiation since they have to factor in the exchange rate between Euros and dollars, and the cost of shipping everything back home. In Sicily, Mike and Frank dig thru properties that were built in the 1600's and they pick items that could be as old as 17th century. Then in England they pick a bicycle enthusiast who has bikes that even Mike has never seen. They also get to dig into a packed garage in London that hasn't been opened in over 12 years!

Back in the states, Mike and Frank will once again haggle over a slew of interesting historic items and meet quirky and interesting characters. From rare Bonnie and Clyde memorabilia to a Bass Guitar that may have belonged to Bill Black, a legendary musician who played with Elvis, to a typewriter that supposedly was lent to Albert Einstein.

Meanwhile, in Iowa, Danielle Colby is overseeing the Antique Archaeology store expansion and is holding down the fort. Viewers will see Danielle go picking with Mike's brother Rob Wolfe and make a huge purchase without the guys.
