It's been a long time coming for motorcycle fans, but American Chopper is finally returning for a new season on May 28 at 10 p.m. on Discovery Channel! Paul Teutul Jr. and the gang are coming back with more insane custom bikes, tight deadlines, and family drama. We can't wait to watch it all unfold. To hold you over until the big premiere, watch the exclusive clip above!
So intense! That's what we love most about the guys; even when they're down to the wire and have all of the odds stacked against them, they always find a way to make it work. In the clip, fabricator Brendon is working on a tight schedule because he needs to catch a flight, and when he's just moments away from finishing, the welding equipment bursts into flames! We can't wait to see how the team finishes the complicated custom bike by deadline, and how the client reacts when they see their masterpiece.
The beloved and unique reality series ended six years ago after ten seasons, and fans couldn't be happier that it's finally making its big return. "Just saw the advert for your show airing in the UK and could not be happier," wrote one fan on Twitter. "My family has watched your show from Day 1 of American Chopper and have waited a long time for this. Much love Paul, good luck." "New season of American Chopper starts Monday. F–k yes!" agreed another enthusiastic viewer.
A lot has changed in the ten years since Paul Teutul Sr. and his son decided to go their separate ways and start their own respective shops (like Paul became a dad!), but business is still booming for both Paul Jr. Desgins and Orange County Choppers. In the new season, they'll work on their relationship by teaming up to restore an old bike. Unfortunately, they're going to have a little trouble letting go of past indiscretions and moving on.
Aside from the family tension, we can look forward to seeing the crew work on motorcycles for celebrities, athletes, businesses, and more! There are sure to be some wild builds and exciting reveals. Tune in on Monday, May 28 at 10 p.m. to see it all unfold!
