The Teutuls are sticking around for at least another year. Discovery Channel today confirmed that a new season of American Chopper is set to premiere next month.

The veteran series was revived last year after an eight year absence, with world-class motorcycle builders and father-son duo Paul Teutul Sr. and Paul Teutul Jr. reuniting in an attempt to rebuild their relationship and reclaim their prominent bike brands.

The original series debuted in 2003 and became an instant hit, becoming the cable network's top-rated original program with an average of 3.4 million viewers in its prime. The show was cancelled in 2010 after six seasons and over 150 episodes, though a short-lived attempt at continuing the brand, entitled American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior, was launched shortly after its original run, but lasted only two years.

Look for the new season of American Chopper to premiere on Tuesday, February 12 at 10:00pm. This time around, the Teutuls continue to work with world class athletes and businesses in the ever-changing customized bike market. Paul Sr. makes a risky move to take his bike designs in a different direction, while Paul Jr. takes on the challenge of building a streamlined bike for the MLB Network.
