Jesse James is Back with a New Monster Garage on discovery+

By: Discovery

Jesse James pushes custom builds to the limit in MONSTER GARAGE, premiering January 4 on discovery+.

Jesse James, legendary fabricator and founder of West Coast Choppers, is returning to Discovery after fourteen years with a renewed passion for creating mind-blowing vehicles. James, along with a new crew of maverick mechanics, sets out to continue his legacy and inspire a new generation of builders in a brand new season of MONSTER GARAGE, premiering January 4 exclusively on discovery+.

With a focus on elevating mechanical and automotive vision in the shop, James is once again looking to accomplish the impossible, working with some of the most talented craftsmen and women in the country. Each episode will feature five builders from diverse backgrounds who are given five days to transform an ordinary street vehicle into a one-of-a-kind monster machine. If they’re successful, they leave the garage with $5,000 worth of tools, and Jesse can take the vehicle out for a high-octane monster challenge. But if they fail, James gets to blow it up.

James challenges each team of mechanics with some of the wildest builds they’ve ever heard of, like constructing the world’s largest pulse jet engine to use as the power source for a vintage Jaguar. In addition, James takes another shot at one of the builds from the original series that has been haunting him, The Hovercraft DeLorean. It will either be a complete failure or one of the garage’s most insane redemption stories.

Jesse James is more talented than ever and he’s ready to break all the rules when it comes to custom builds.
