Swamp People: Serpent Invasion

The Cajun Navy returns to Florida to help battle the incredibly dangerous and invasive species of Burmese pythons destroying the Everglades.

Last year was just the start of a very successful hunt and capture of these aggressive creatures, but now the pythons are breeding at unprecedented rates.

"King of the Swamp" Troy Landry, his son Chase, gator wrangler Bruce Mitchell and invasive species hunter Zak Catchem, once again join local snake expert Bill Booth to battle these giant snakes to protect the community, native species, and environment.

This year, the hunters divide and conquer, splitting into two teams to cover more ground and travel farther than ever before.

They'll use different transportation methods and tools as their mission takes them into dark, dangerous and mysterious areas of the swamp, where man has never stepped foot, and the snakes breed unchecked.

This is a war to take back the Everglades.

The medics rescue a wounded Corporal Buckley in the village and Alvarez gets some upsetting news from home.

Also, Roback, Davis and the unlikely companion, Private Petrocelli, return to the village to inquire about a potentially lucrative endeavour with the Warlord - and have a run in with SecCorp.

Oh, and Petrocelli finds a new friend in a lost goat.

Love After Lockup 4

This series follows lovebirds hoping to make their way down the aisle with the jailbirds who may or may not be conning them.

Whether it's dodging a parole officer, negotiating with a halfway house, or being stuck under house arrest with someone they hardly know, the realities of being on the outside are starting to hit these newly released prisoners.

Will they break the law and go back to jail, or save themselves and leave their lovers broken hearted?

From the first lusty meet-ups outside of prison walls to awkward meetings with mom, 'Love After Lockup' doesn't miss a moment of every romantic, cringy, and heartbreaking journey.

New couples this season include:

Jessica and Maurice (Las Vegas, Nevada)

Jessica was immediately smitten when she stumbled upon Maurice's profile on "Plenty of Fish", only to realise later that he was in prison.

After three short months of dating, Maurice, serving time for first degree burglary, got down on one knee, ring-less, and proposed to Jessica; who immediately said yes and proceeded to buy her own ring for two dollars.

The couple tied the knot in a prison wedding shortly after their engagement and hopes to have a big Vegas wedding following Maurice's release... but will Jessica's family accept this new union?

Shawn and Destinie (Las Vegas, Nevada)

After striking up an immediate connection online, Shawn and Destinie now talk twice a day - but there's one big catch: the couple has never met in person.

How will the mother of Shawn's six children react when he reveals the new love of his life, an ex-con, is moving in?

John and Kristianna (Cresco, Iowa and Mitchellville, Iowa)

John and Kristianna struck up a relationship online and fell head over heels for each other after just three months.

Unbeknownst to Kristianna, John is planning for a wedding ceremony on the very day of her release.

Will John move too fast for his newly released love?

Scott and Lindsey (Olive Branch, Mississippi and Dublin, California)

51-year-old entrepreneur Scott uprooted his New York life for 27-year-old Mississippi belle, Lindsey, who landed in jail for possession of drugs and a firearm.

Though they've never met in person, Scott has been supporting the former cheerleader and honour student throughout their relationship.

He plans to move Lindsey and her daughter into the dream home he is renovating to her specifications.

Tyrice and Chanda (Chicago, Illinois and Kansas City, Kansas)

Tired of the games women play on the outside, Tyrice - who is pushing 50 - found 28-year-old Chanda on a website for prison pen pals.

Tyrice is hoping to settle down ASAP with the love of his life, but is Chanda on the same page?

His three grown children are happy he's found a mate, but they do not trust her one bit.

Shavel and Quaylon (Olathe, Kansas)

Incarcerated for over a decade, Quaylon met Shavel seeking companionship during his lengthy sentence.

After months of calls, visits and letters, their friendship quickly turned into something more.

After two years together, Shavel is looking forward to the release of the love of her life and starting a life with her 5-year-old daughter in Kansas City.

What she doesn't know is Quaylon's family expects him to return to Texas upon his release.
