LOS ANGELES (February 1, 2022) AXS TV expands its programming menu, serving up all 10 seasons of the hit EMMY®-nominated series Wahlburgers—making its network debut on Sunday, February 27. AXS TV puts the spotlight on four hours of unforgettable episodes each week, airing from 7 p.m. ET to 11 p.m. ET.

Originally running on A&E from 2014-2019, Wahlburgers takes viewers behind the scenes of one of the country’s most high-profile restaurant chains, as acclaimed chef Paul Wahlberg works to build a burger empire with the help of his own personal entourage led by his talented brothers Mark and Donnie, and their beloved mother Alma. The series provides an intimate glimpse into the inner workings of the Wahlberg clan as they balance busy kitchen life with the pressures of international expansion, menu innovation, and a side of friendly family drama. Despite the trials and tribulations of running a major chain, the Wahlberg boys keep their trademark charm and sincere love for each other intact—proving that the only thing thicker than the burgers is the brothers’ unbreakable bond.

The Wahlbergs are joined on this entertaining culinary odyssey by a host of famous friends and fellow icons, who stop in to add some extra flavor to the burgeoning burger business. Highlights include appearances by NFL legends Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman; fan-favorite actress, comedienne and host —and Donnie’s wife—Jenny McCarthy; Boston Bruins mainstay Bobby Orr; Country music superstar John Rich; former Yankees slugger Alex Rodriguez; speedway standout Dale Earnhardt Jr.; golf great Bubba Watson; multitalented entertainers Joey Fatone and Penn & Teller; Entourage star Adrian Grenier; and New Kids On The Block members Joey McIntyre, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight, and Danny Wood.

“This series captured an incredible moment for us as a family, and we all had such a great time getting to share our love for this business and each other with the world,” Mark Wahlberg said. “Wahlburgers resonated with so many people during its run, and it is still humbling to see how warmly viewers have embraced all the fun, drama, and craziness that make our dynamic so special. We are proud to have the show join AXS TV’s lineup, and look forward to welcoming their audience into the Wahlburgers family.”

“Looking back at this show is like exploring a time capsule that contains so many important memories for our family,” Donnie Wahlberg said. “It means a lot to us, and I know it’s come to mean a great deal to many viewers, as well. They can relate to the drama and dysfunction, but they also relate to the love and the humor that we all have for each other. It’s a really special thing, and I feel honored that we were able to touch so many lives. I hope AXS TV’s viewers have as much fun reliving these unforgettable moments as we did making them.”

“The Wahlbergs are one of entertainment’s most beloved families, amassing loyal fans across the realms of films, food, television, and music,” said Sarah Weidman, Head of Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “Despite the success they have achieved, they are still the same humble boys from Boston at heart, and that undeniable charm shines throughout the hit Wahlburgers series. This show is the perfect complement to our programming roster, and I am confident our viewers are going to enjoy watching it on Sunday nights.”

Wahlburgers was produced for A&E Network by 44 Blue Productions, a Red Arrow Studios company, in association with Closest to the Hole Productions, Leverage Entertainment and Donnie D Productions. Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson and Donnie Wahlberg are executive producers. Executive producers for 44 Blue Productions are Rasha Drachkovitch, David Hale and Sara Quick.
