Quest Goes for More Salvage Hunters


ADVERTISEMENT

Discovery’s free-to-air factual-entertainment channel Quest has ordered three new seasons of Salvage Hunters and commissioned sophomore runs of its spin-off series The Restorers and Classic Cars.

Salvage Hunters returns with 45 new episodes following Drew Pritchard as he traverses the U.K. in search of hidden gems. Produced by Curve Media, the new season of the series will feature antiques fairs across the U.K., as well as special international episodes.

The spin-offs, Salvage Hunters: The Restorers and Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars, premiered earlier this year. They will return to Quest for their second seasons.

In addition, the back2back-produced Scrap Kings and Mega Shippers are returning to Quest. Scrap Kings highlights innovative feats of engineering, while Mega Shippers looks at highly skilled shippers working in ports across the globe.

Simon Downing, the senior VP, head of Quest and Eurosport UK, said, “Quest had a record-breaking quarter in Q1 this year, and we’re incredibly excited to serve our superfans more of the smash-hit series that drove those ratings. Salvage Hunters is our most successful franchise ever, and the new series and two spin-off shows promise to give fans more of the treasure-hunting missions they love. Meanwhile, the expert teams from Scrap Kings and Mega Shippers are back with more show stopping demolitions and high stakes shipping drama.”
