26-episode seasons of the shows will premiere on the network this summer
A lot of junk will be purchased and hauled across the country on A&E this summer, as the network has ordered new, 26-episode seasons of its hit reality shows "Storage Wars," "Storage Wars: Texas" and "Shipping Wars."
All three shows will premiere their latest seasons this summer.
"Storage Wars," which debuted in 2010 and has become the cable network's highest-rated series, follows the adventures of a group of auction hunters. The new season will be the show's fourth.
Meanwhile, a spin-off series, "Storage Wars: Texas," premiered in December. Another spin-off, based in New York, is in development at the network.
A&E's latest "Wars" franchise — "Shipping Wars" — debuted on the network in January to three million viewers.
"America is at a crossroads where people are finding new ways to make money and earn a living," said David McKillop, executive vice president of programming for A&E. "We're holding a mirror up to this trend in our programming, and it's proven to be incredibly relatable to our viewers, yet remain highly entertaining."
