Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe Returns for a New Season
An all-new season of the fan-favorite series DIRTY JOBS premieres Sunday, January 2 at 8 PM ET/PT on Discovery and streaming on discovery+.
It’s a dirty job, but somebody has to do it. Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, is rolling up his sleeves to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible.
“Just when I thought I was out,” joked Mike quoting The Godfather, “they pulled me back in!"
"Actually, I’ve been flattered over the last year by hundreds of letters from loyal fans, urging me to reboot the series, and I’m excited and honored to introduce the country to a new batch of hardworking Americans who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Also, I can’t think of a better way to kick off the new year.”
The return of DIRTY JOBS allows Mike to come back for another chance to take on the jobs he's been dreaming about since the show's first run. In the season premiere, Mike joins the hard workers responsible for building America’s infrastructure. Every day, millions of people drive over bridges and along our vast highway system. But what exactly does it take to build these complex and vital structures?
Mike apprentices with the rod busters, who work under brutal conditions and sweltering temperatures, as they twist, mold, and fabricate the iron framework to secure our nation’s superstructures. Mike travels outside Tampa, Florida, to meet with rod busters tasked with completing a bridge in just 1 day. Their work is both artistic and critical, but the results of their labor are always covered with concrete – out of sight and out of mind. Mike is ready to correct that. But will he be able to keep up with the high-pressure conditions and timeline?
Whether it’s a water tower cleaner, escalator maintainer, combat surgeon, or epoxy installer, each episode showcases the unsung heroes and the communities that rely on these essential jobs. Mike will also lend a hand to those on the frontlines protecting the nation from invasions, even when it involves glowing scorpions or destructive iguanas.
Yes, we said destructive iguanas.
