Tonight the original cast of abandoned storage unit bidders return as Storage Wars Season 5 premieres with back-to-back episodes starting at 9/8c. The bad news is that fan-favorite eccentric jokester Barry Weiss won’t be back for Season 5 — the good news is that he won’t be back for Season 5 because he’ll be back on Season 1… of his own show! Barry’s spin-off series titled Barry’d Treasure also premieres tonight with back-to-back episodes, airing just after Storage Wars at 10/9c on A&E.
Here’s a Barry’d Treasure preview video clip:
As Barry mentions in the video, he’s retired from the storage locker game and is taking his show on the road. Going along for the ride will be an assortment of Barry’s seemingly infinite array of charismatic sidekicks, starting with a feller fans of Storage Wars may be familiar with, Kenny Crossley. You know, the Praline King! Here’s a reminder clip of Kenny’s appearance on Storage Wars where it was revealed that he bakes some of the best pralines around (and it was also revealed Barry bakes… himself):
In the Barry’d Treasure premiere, he and Kenny touch down in Philadelphia and hit the road together. According to AETV.com. “Along the way he grabs some of Reese’s Pieces, models tiny furniture, and does some Amish matchmaking.” (Who wants to bet Barry owns some sort of bizarre custom horse buggy?)
As I mentioned, Barry’d Treasure premieres tonight and then airs Tuesday nights at 10/9c on A&E. While you wait for the premiere, here are some promotional photos from Season 1 featuring Barry and Kenny:
