TLC is bringing back the Teutul family for one more season of a revamped “American Chopper”.

According to the New York Post, the show will now be known as “American Chopper: Senior vs. Junior” and will premiere in August. The show will feature two competing bike shops, Paul Teutul Sr. and the original Orange County Choppers as well as Junior’s new company, Paul Jr. Designs.

The original “American Chopper” series was canceled in February as father and son were embroiled in a bitter legal battle over Paul Jr.’s 20% stake in OCC. According to the New York Post, the two have not spoken in over a year when Senior fired Junior from OCC.
