Each week, brave host and apprentice Mike Rowe introduces viewers to a hardworking group of men and women who overcome fear, danger and sometimes stench to accomplish their daily tasks. With his hands-on approach, Rowe assumes the duties of the jobs in question working alongside rattlesnake catchers, fish processors, bee removers and others.
Mike Rowe trains as a trauma surgeon using hyper-realistic scenarios and specialized equipment to learn under simulated battlefield conditions. He then controls an invasive mess of iguanas which are posing health risks to humans on the Florida coast.
Discovery has announced that Dirty Jobs is being revived for a new season later this year. Production has already begun on what will be the show's 10th season overall.
The reality series premiered in 2003 and was a staple on the cable network until it was cancelled in 2012. While its last regular season aired nearly a decade ago, it was briefly rebooted as a limited series last summer under the title Dirty Jobs: Rowe'd Trip.
The upcoming season of Dirty Jobs will celebrate a new generation of hardworking essential workers who have helped make civilized life possible. Mike Rowe will be back to get his hands dirty as he heads deep into the southern bayous and up to the remote badlands, lending a helping hand to those on the frontlines.
