Looking for a new show to accompany your Thursday night catch-up with Alana Thompson, Mama June, Pumpkin, and the gang? Good, because TLC has the perfect solution: a second season of the South Carolina-based reality series Trailer Park: Welcome to Myrtle Manor premieres tonight — and it airs right after Here Comes Honey Boo Boo!

Fans of Teen Mom 2 might remember that Jenelle Evans is friends with Welcome to Myrtle Manor star Taylor J. Burt and often hangs out with him while vacationing in the summer resort town of Myrtle Beach, S.C.. She even attended a Machine Gun Kelly concert with him and Nathan Griffith last summer.

None of this sound familiar? No worry, this is one show that’s super easy to pick up — and there are new characters this time around, anyway. Welcome to Myrtle Manor focuses on the “quirky” mobile home residents of Myrtle Beach, and this season picks up when a new rivalry erupts between the trailer park and rival park, Village Creek — sounds entertaining!

According to TLC, we will see as “each [park] tries to one up the other in an effort to prove that they are the best trailer park in town.” Wonder how they’ll do that? And get this: the manager of Village Creek, Roxanne, is the longtime foe of Myrtle Manor’s manager, Becky. Sounds like some Sharks and Jets stuff, right there.

Some of the other drama we’re promised:

“Newlyweds Jared and Chelsey's marriage gets off to a rocky start and things get even more complicated when Chelsey gets baby fever. Amanda makes a move for the sexy new trailer park handyman, Brock; not to mention that Miss Peggy also has the hots for the 23-year-old new hire!  .. Meanwhile, a mysterious new resident named Stephania moves into the park that has all the residents talking.”

Woah — rivalries, newlyweds, a cougar, a sexy handyman, and a mysterious woman.. sounds like something out of daytime TV! And lord knows we could use some more of that soapy goodness after last year’s cancellations. Count us in! Check out the Season 2 trailer below.

Trailer Park: Welcome To Myrtle Manor premieres tonight, January 16 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
