Mike Rowe Returns with More DIRTY JOBS

By: Discovery

The fan-favorite series is currently in production and will premiere later this year.

March 18, 2021

Mike Rowe, a champion of essential workers, will return to Discovery to celebrate the next generation of hardworking men and women who have made civilized life possible.

“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. He'll be heading deep into the southern bayous as well as high up in America’s remote Badlands. The dirtier the job, the better, as Mike tackles each job with his typical candid, no-nonsense 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 medical 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, 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.
