NEWBURGH, N.Y. - Custom motorcycle shop Orange County Choppers and leader Paul Teutul Sr. return to the airwaves next month in CMT’s new eight-episode series of the same name, premiering at 9 p.m. ET/PT Nov. 16.
The series follows Paul Sr. and team as they take on the most challenging bike builds of their careers. In each hourlong episode of Orange County Choppers, Senior and his team navigate tight deadlines, big egos and all the chaos that emerges from a group of rough and rowdy coworkers.
Joining the cast is Evan Favaro, 23, as creative director, who must prove he’s worthy of his new position by demonstrating his leadership, design and fabrication skills.
Highlights from the new season of Orange County Choppers include:
An international client orders a custom “dragon bike” that becomes one of the most intricate builds the team has ever taken on. When a prank goes awry and a piece of the dragon is broken, all hands must be on deck to resolve the problem and finish the bike by the time the client returns to the States.
Carhop restaurant chain Sonic commissions the team to build a bike for a giveaway at its annual Sonic national convention. It’s crucial that the bike impress the audience of nationwide franchisees. Pressure mounts toward the end of the assembly when a problem with an important bracket and a chrome-bubbling issue threaten to keep the bike from the reveal date.
GAF, the largest roofing manufacturer in North America, orders a bike to present to a veteran on stage at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The team only has two-and-a-half weeks to design and build a chopper that’s worthy of a Purple Heart recipient.

Also new at OCC, the shop has started work on a motorcycle for Global Humanitaria’s PROTECT Project against child sexual exploitation. This chopper will be raffled off with the proceeds to benefit PROTECT. While the build is in progress, Global Humanitaria is working out the details of the raffle. Global Humanitaria’s PROTECT project has been working on behalf of child victims of sexual exploitation for over 10 years.
