DISCOVERY ANNOUNCES THE RETURN OF "DIRTY JOBS" WITH MIKE ROWE

The Hit Series, Currently in Production, Will Premiere Later This Year on Discovery

(LOS ANGELES) - Discovery announced it has begun production on the fan-favorite series DIRTY JOBS. Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, will return to the network to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible. 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. It's time to get dirty - again!

Viewers can join the conversation on social media by using #DirtyJobs and following Discovery on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok for the latest updates.

DIRTY JOBS is co-produced for Discovery Channel by School of Humans, LTD. and MRW Productions. For School of Humans, Chad Crowley, Ben Franzen and Brandon Barr are executive producers and Sandi Kloosterman is Supervising Producer. For MRW Productions, Mike Rowe and Mary Sullivan are executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Joseph Boyle and Joshua C. Berkley are executive producers and associate producer is Paola Espinosa.
