The critically acclaimed, Emmy-nominated franchise Hoarders, premieres an all-new season on Thursday, May 28, at 9 pm ET/PT on Lifetime. Titled "Hoarders: Family Secrets", the program features original stories of people who obsessively hoard to the point that collecting overwhelms their families and their lives. The series kicks-off with a one-hour special focusing on a Massachusetts family and will feature live segments culminating in an all-live intervention.

The series will follow them as they embark on the biggest transformations of their lives and reveal their secret hoards to loved ones for the first time. The experts featured this season are Dr. Suzanne Chabaud, Dr. Robin Zasio, Dr. Michael Tompkins, Dr. Scott Hannan, Dr. Melva Green and Mark Pfeffer.
