Hoarding: Buried Alive will be returning to TLC with new episodes next month.

TLC has announced the fourth season of Hoarding: Buried Alive will premiere Sunday, July 8 at 9PM ET/PT.

The fourth season of Hoarding: Buried Alive -- which follows extreme hoarders as they work with expert therapists and professional organizers and attempt to reclaim their lives --  will feature eighteen episodes and be broadcast into two parts. 

Nine fourth-season episodes will air beginning in July and the remaining nine will be broadcast in early 2013.

Hoarding: Buried Alive's fourth-season premiere will feature Cary, a 51-year-old compulsive hoarder and Elvis impersonator with a heartbreaking story.

According to TLC, Cary's obsession with Elvis has taken over every inch of his 600-square foot New York City apartment over the last two decades. Now, with a home that is virtually uninhabitable and a bank account which is nearly empty, Cary faces the possibility of parting ways with his memorabilia.

Hoarding: Buried Alive is produced for TLC by Discovery Studios and executive produced by Mike Kane.
