It was announced in October that E!’s popular plastic surgery gone bad gone good reality series Botched would be getting a spin-off. Titled Botched By Nature, the show would focus on what made the original our favorite new reality series of 2014 (its HUGE heart) as it documents doctors Terry Dubrow and Paul Nassif hitting the road to bring their services to those in dire need who otherwise would not have had the option.
E! announced earlier this month that plastic surgery’s greatest bromance would be returning in its original form for Botched Season 3 on May 10, and earlier today the network finally revealed that the inaugural season of the spin-off Botched By Nature would premiere on Tuesday, August 9 at 9/8c.
“The famous doctor duo Dr. Nassif and Dr. Dubrow are taking the show on the road and heading cross country to change the lives of those who have been botched by genetics or a traumatic incident,” the network said in a press release. “The new one-hour, eight episode series follows the nation-wide pursuit of these plastic surgeons as they seek to transform the lives of patients willing to share their powerful stories with the world.”
In addition to the Botched By Nature announcement, E! provided updates on other shows — both new and returning — set to premiere this summer:
