Each season, the men and women of Ice Road Truckers battle the elements to bring supplies across frozen lakes and sometimes hard, snow-covered ground. The team finished out Season 6 last fall, but The History Channel announced on Monday that the truckers will be returning for a brand new season, and the series will begin airing new episodes sooner than you might think.
Ice Road Truckers will return to the schedule on June 9. The season will follow two different trucking companies that are competing for contracts; each hope to put the other out of business through the season. Interestingly, after a year off, driver Lisa Kelly is expected to return to the series and will shake things up when she chooses which of the two trucking companies to drive for.
The reason there seems to be two companies is because Hugh Rowland quit Polar Industries to start his own company, bringing some of the guys with him. There should be more than enough contracts to go around in Manitoba, but it doesn’t seem like the big fish (Polar Industries) wants the little fish to thrive. Overall, if you like the series, it sounds like the stakes will be a little different this season, but still compelling. Ice Road Truckers is executive produced by Thom Beers, Philip D. Segal, Jeff Conroy, and Matt Ginsburg.
You can catch new episodes of History’s Ice Road Truckers on June 9 at 10 p.m. ET, following the premiere of the new season of Mountain Men at 9 p.m. ET. Other History summer premieres include American Pickers and Pawn Stars (May 27) and Top Shot: All Stars (May 29).
