FIRST LOOK: Donnie & Mark Wahlberg Are Back for 2nd Season of Wahlburgers
There’s a lot more going on than just frying meat patties in the upcoming season of the Emmy-nominated A&E reality show, Wahlburgers, which stars Donnie and Mark Wahlberg and their friends and family members as they live, love, sing and serve food at their Boston burger joint.
For starters, Alma, the clan’s don’t-mess-with-me matriarch, gets a taste of celebrity when she rides in a red convertible during a local parade. She also gets a new smartphone and quickly becomes a game fanatic.
Then Donnie, who was on tour in London with New Kids on the Block this summer, gets surprised by his fiancée, Jenny McCarthy, who arranges for a mystery visitor to help him get over his homesickness. She also adopts a playful British accent, which annoys her future brother-in-law Paul. (“Are you really going to do this the whole time?” he asks. Umm, probably.)
The gang also take off for Hong Kong, where the brothers’ pal, Johnny Drama, tags along and “shoots” a commercial in Chinese (of course he would!).
“It’s all about making people happy and giving everything you got,” says Donnie, which could refer to either performing or the family restaurant.

The new season of Wahlburgers returns on August 13 at 10 p.m. ET on A&E.
