WBD UK & Ireland Slates New & Returning Series


Warner Bros. Discovery (WBD) UK & Ireland has ordered a host of new and returning series that will debut across its linear channels before dropping on discovery+ in the second half of 2024 and early 2025.

Included in the nearly 100 hours of content ordered is the brand-new series The French Antiques River Cruise, produced by True North. STV Studios’ all-new The Derbyshire Auction House, which builds on the Auction House franchise, is also upcoming.

STV Studios is also producing the fifth season of The Yorkshire Auction House. In addition, fans of the show can look forward to the upcoming fourth season of Celebrity Yorkshire Auction House in November.

Full Fat TV’s The Bad Skin Clinic will also return for a 10×60-minute seventh season.

Fifth Gear is also slated to return. The new season, from North One, will feature exclusive first drives of the latest models, fan-favorite items and more.

Outback Opal Hunters will return for an eighth season as well. The 20×60-minute run is produced by Prospero Productions and set to air later this summer.

Charlotte Reid, VP of commissioning at WBD UK & Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to be welcoming a slate of new and returning series for our linear portfolio. The brand-new The French Antiques River Cruise series coming to Quest adds to our existing lineup of antique and salvage titles, so too does a bumper lineup of the Auction House format with the fifth season of The Yorkshire Auction House, the third season of Celebrity Yorkshire Auction House and the new spin-off series The Derbyshire Auction House. We are also excited to see the return of some of our most popular franchises, including Bad Skin Clinic and Outback Opal Hunters, as well as the return of Fifth Gear.”
