Breakout Hit Gets Nine-Episode Order

The Weather Channel Companies (TWCC) announced today it has ordered a full season of  "Iron Men," a docu-series profiling the iron workers who spend their days battling weather conditions hundreds of feet above New York City to build skyscrapers, bridges, arenas and other major structures. In addition to the four episodes currently airing, nine new episodes have been ordered that will premiere later this year. New episodes will take place at the 4 World Trade Center site inaddition to the Barclays Center, the new home of the Brooklyn Nets, and theAlexander Hamilton Bridge (note: watch construction progress at 4 WTC via TWC's exclusive live webcam at "Iron Men" is produced by Pipeline39 (formerly known as KPI), the producers of "The Rising: Rebuilding Ground Zero," "MonsterQuest" and "MegaStructures."

"This line of work isn't for the faint of heart, and it's truly fascinating to live vicariously through these iron workers and the perilous conditions that they consider ‘business as usual,'" said Michael Dingley, senior vice president, content and development for The Weather Channel.

"Iron Men" first premiered on May 8, 2012, as part of "Braving the Elements," a new docu-series anthology revealing the work, subculture and characters of professions exposed to theelements and impacted by the weather. The series will now be a standalone series outside of "Braving the Elements," moving into its own timeslot on Thursday, Aug. 30, at 9 p.m. E.T.

Looks like the second season of "Iron Men" will premiere this Thursday September 6 instead of yesterday's scheduled premiere due to coverage of Isaac, according to a YouTube video TWC posted.
