The new season of "Wahlburgers" starts March 9 and "Donnie Loves Jenny" starts on March 16 on A&E. The Boston Herald published an article about what to expect in the new seasons.
It’ll be wall-to-wall Wahlbergs on A&E next month as the new seasons of “Wahlburgers” and “Donnie Loves Jenny” kick off.
The Wahlberg chronicles kick off March 9 with “Wahlburgers,” the reality show about Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg’s attempts to achieve global hamburger domination with their Hingham-based franchise and to become the favorite son of mom Alma.
According to A&E, this season will feature special guest appearances by music mogul P. Diddy, NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt Jr. and even Pope Francis. And Mark will make his directorial debut shooting a “Wahlburgers” rap video starring “Wahlburgers” regular Johnny Drama, aka Johnny Alves. The video will be shot in New Orleans, and Mark will get an assist from Diddy and Mark’s longtime collaborator Peter Berg, the director of the upcoming Boston Marathon movie “Patriot’s Day.”
Mark will also star in an episode chronicling his hosting gig at the Festival of Families honoring Pope Francis in Philadelphia. Meanwhile, Donnie and the New Kids on the Block will put on a special show for mom Alma. Paul, apparently, will be plotzing in the kitchen.
Speaking of Donnie, he and wife Jenny McCarthy will try to transition to suburban life on “Donnie Loves Jenny,” which premieres on March 16. The lovebirds have settled in St. Charles, Ill., near Jenny’s hometown, but fans have found their home. The cameras will also follow the newlyweds as Donnie struggles to pass his motorcycle test and Jenny works with her autism charity.
