(Los Angeles) – Rev up your engines for an all-new season of the FAST N’ LOUD spin-off series MISFIT GARAGE, returning to Discovery on Wednesday, August 30 at 9PM ET/PT. The misfits at Fired Up Garage are back in hopes of turning their shop into a money-making machine, but with their usual antics, things don’t always go as planned. This season brings bigger builds, celebrity guests and a Guinness World Records® attempt, but will it be enough to make the garage a household name?
From Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Media Group, MISFIT GARAGE follows the crew at Fired Up Garage – Thomas Weeks, Tom Smith, Kevin Clark, John Klump and Josh Paris – as they set out to prove themselves as the #1 shop in the world for custom street rods, rivaling FAST N’ LOUD’s Richard Rawlings and his mega-successful Gas Monkey Garage in Dallas. At the end of last season, John Klump became a partner at the garage and vowed to up the shop’s game, while Thomas made it his mission to increase the cash flow through quick flips. Will this management change prove beneficial to the shop – or will it cause tempers to flare among the crew?
This year, the guys will need to work even harder on challenging new projects to get the recognition they desire. The crew circumvents Thomas and buys back a 1952 Willys Jeep, which they previously flipped and are now looking to build into the ultimate off-road machine. Klump is at the helm, making all the decisions on the build and causing tensions to rise among the crew. With no buyer and little experience selling off-road vehicles, the misfits will have to pull out all the stops to showcase the Jeep and make a profit.
Viewers can also catch the current season premiere, along with the past two seasons of MISFIT GARAGE on the Discovery GO app – free with their paid TV subscription.
MISFIT GARAGE is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Media Group, with Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder serving as executive producers. For Discovery Channel, Craig Coffman is executive producer with Todd Lefkowitz serving as producer. Richard Rawlings also serves as executive producer.
