They’re back! Ceaser and his crew are returning with a whole new season of VH1’s hit reality TV series Black Ink Crew, and fans will get to catch up with the cast when they return on Wednesday, Sept. 19 during the two-hour season premiere. Season 7 has a lot in store as shop owner Ceaser prepares to expand his empire. Watch the video below to see Life & Style‘s exclusive sneak peek!

Ceaser has been running his shop Black Ink in Harlem for six years, solidifying his status in the NYC tattoo scene. But while he’s continuing his reign as the king of New York tattooing, he’s also got his sights set on his future — and this season, cameras will follow him as he prepares to open his fourth tattoo shop: an upscale 24-hour tattoo parlor, bar, and restaurant in New Orleans. 

Meanwhile, the rest of Ceaser’s crew are busy making moves too. Sky is more committed than ever to her newfound relationship with her son, Des, and she’s learning to balance it all along with the launch of the new shop. Donna and Alex are tighter than ever after their sex tape scandal, and fans will watch as they work to build a substantial relationship. Young Bae begins her journey to U.S. citizenship and welcomes her first child, Walt’s path to sobriety is tested when he heads to New Orleans and is tempted by the party scene, and O Sh*t starts to entertain plans of going solo as he voices frustrations with the New York shop. And now that Melody is a mother, she hopes to connect with her family after finally embracing her biracial identity.

The Black Ink Crew franchise, which is produced by Big Fish Entertainment, has been consistently dominating Wednesday nights — ranking as the #1 non-sports cable program in its time period with P18-34.
