A&E’s “Storage Wars: New York” returns with back-to-back premiere episodes at 8 and 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 9.

Details on the series, provided by A&E, are as follows:

“Storage Wars: New York” follows a group of urban explorers in a modern-day treasure hunt for forgotten gems.  In the nation’s most populated city, with its notoriously small apartments and storage dilemmas, there’s no telling what amazing valuables might exist within the storage units of New York and its surrounding areas. Joe P (“The Legend”), Mike (“The Hustler”), Candy and Courtney (“The Flame and The Firecracker”), Chris and Tad (“The Loud Mouth and The Conscience”) and auctioneer John Luke are back, along with larger than life newcomer Big Steve.  It is a constant battle to find and own the lost and precious items of the city, and when New Yorkers are bidding, a whole different attitude comes to the auction!

In the season premiere episode at 8 p.m., the buyers head to Trenton, New Jersey and Chris and Tad find a crate of fireworks that makes them wonder if they¹ve found the best bang for their buck. Joe P finds out whether an antique hearing aid whispers the sweet sound of success or leaves him empty-handed.  At 8:30 p.m. the bidders venture out to Harlem, New York and Mike explores his feminine side with the purchase of a woman’s locker.

“Storage Wars: New York” is produced by Original Productions, a FremantleMedia Company for A&E Network.  Executive producers are Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Jeff Conroy and Dolph Scott. A&E executive producers are David McKillop, Elaine Frontain Bryant and Fred Grinstein.
