A&E Network has announced Gene Simmons Family Jewels' third season, which continues to follow the KISS frontman and his family in their daily lives, will premiere with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, March 11 at 10PM ET/PT.
While Simmons may be the star of Family Jewels, the show's cast also includes Shannon Tweed, the former Playboy Playmate of the Year who has been happily UNmarried to him for 24 years, as well as their two teenage children Nick and Sophie.
Third-season episodes will include fans finding out if the 4,800 women Simmons claims to have slept with all occurred before his relationship with Tweed began in 1983; a Gene Simmons Roast in which he gets verbally assaulted by friends and comedians; the first ever KISS concert where the band performs as a trio; a behind-the-scenes look at Simmons' role on NBC's The Celebrity Apprentice before he was fired by Donald Trump; and various family trips to both Hawaii and Mexico.
A&E renewedFamily Jewels' for a third season last summer, and also increased its order from 20 to 24 half-hour episodes.
