The kings and queens of pig shows are back! PIG ROYALTY returns and this time the buckles are off as the competition (and drama!) reach unparalleled heights. The Rihn and the Balero family rivalry continues to boil while Balero protegee, Nugget, and Rihn-coach, Tyler, question their allegiances. A mud-bath storm is headed towards these two families with reputations and thousands of dollars on the line, but as always, the drama behind the scenes is as Texas-sized as the competition in the ring. Season two of PIG ROYALTY streams exclusively on discovery+ beginning Wednesday, March 16.
The notorious family rivalries of team Balero and team Rihn make a squealing return and each team has something to prove as these "pig time" personalities go head-to-head. After the intensity of last year’s show season, Team Rihn is ready to get back in the ring with Jody and Josh Rihn’s son, Kannen, leading the way. Not only are the Rihns trying to bulk up on buckles and redemption, but they are also birthing baby pigs in hopes of revamping their business and increasing their breeding operations to form the ultimate champions. Just as the breeding operation is getting off the ground, the Rihn’s house gets destroyed by a tornado, forcing them to move into a trailer while they rebuild. Luckily no pigs are harmed, but feelings get hurt as family friend and fellow coach, Tyler Parrish, starts to question his future on the Rihn team.
Meanwhile, on the other side of the arena, Team Balero looks to build on their pig-winning dynasty. And you can bet that their fearless matriarch, Michelle Bolero, isn’t going home without a fight… and some buckles. This season, the competition takes an unexpected turn as team Balero experiences a shocking betrayal when the star of their team, Nugget, begins entertaining offers from other teams. With Michelle only having one team member left, she’s determined to restore her show team back to its former glory and bring home the bacon.
With each family's reputation and livelihood on the line, these contestants are willing to do whatever it takes to hog the coveted belt buckles and bragging rights in and out of the ring. The battle has just begun, and the pigs are ready to show up and show off.
