A&E Network’s award-winning series Wahlburgers is set for its tenth and final season, which will bow on the channel next month.

The final season premieres on Wednesday, May 15, at 9 p.m. Produced by 44 Blue Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, in association with Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Donnie D Productions, Wahlburgers follows the lives of brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg as they balance their families, fame and their restaurant chain.

The titular restaurant, the original location of which is in Hingham, Massachusetts, now has over 30 locations nationwide. The tenth season will see Mark and Paul travel to Germany, where they will continue to work with the military to open restaurants in U.S. bases around the world. The series culminates with the brothers realizing their mother’s dream of opening their namesake restaurant in their hometown of Dorchester, Massachusetts.

New series The Employables will premiere at 10 p.m. following Wahlburgers.

“Creating the Wahlburgers restaurants has been an incredible experience and we are so grateful to have shared it with A&E viewers these last nine seasons,” said Mark. “It’s been an amazing journey that has brought us closer together as a family and launched our little business to heights we never could’ve imagined,” Donnie added.

“We are so appreciative to the Wahlberg family for opening up their hearts and lives to the A&E viewers over the years,” said Elaine Frontain Bryant, executive VP and head of programming at A&E Network. “We are so excited for the fans to see what the brothers have been cooking up for the final season.”

Rasha Drachkovitch, executive producer at 44 Blue, said: “It has been a true pleasure to bring the Wahlberg family into the homes of our viewers over the last nine seasons. The goal in making Wahlburgers was to not only entertain, but also to remind people about the power of family and the joy a little laughter can bring to tough situations. With this final season, our hope is that everyone takes a bit of Donnie, Mark, Paul and Alma along with them.”
