Plot Synopsis

Each episode follows the lives of two different hoarders -- people who find it impossible to throw things away, even when the items impair their daily lives. Whether they're facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help. Experts work to heal each hoarder, and cleaning is just the first step. Some can't throw away even the tiniest thing - a sponge, a button, an empty box - because it's so overwhelming, while others welcome professional guidance to organize their lives and give them strength.

HOARDERS returned for a new season on Sunday, January 3, 2016 from 9-11pm ET/PT, as A&E premiered back-to-back new episodes immediately following a four-hour marathon (5-9pm) of encore episodes. In the season opener, "Judy," Judy's life is a dangerous one of severe contradictions. She is an extreme germaphobe who spends her entire day engaged in sanitization rituals, yet she lives in a severe and extremely filthy hoard overridden with mice whom she considers her friends. The situation is so hazardous to her health the fire department and health department have mandated a clean up. Then, in the night's second new episode (10pm), "Roxann & Barbara," Roxann is a vibrant, beautiful 32-year old mother and former model who has successfully hidden her hoarding until now. She fears Child Protective Services will intervene if she doesn't clean up her hoarded home. Barbara's extreme hoarding has forced her out of her house. The city is ready to condemn the home and do a forced cleanup if she doesn't take care of the problem.

A&E premiered a new season of HOARDERS on Sunday, December 18, 2016 from 9-11pm ET/PT, showing back-to-back new episodes. In the season opener (9pm), "Lonnie & Linda," Lonnie is a famed neurosurgeon and former Lt. Governor of the State of Nevada. He is also a notorious hoarder spending an estimated $10 million on his collections! Lonnie is facing potential bankruptcy and the loss of all assets if he can't auction off some of his hoard to pay off debts. Linda loves Storage Wars. However, she has accrued so many storage units, she can now barely live in her house. Her loved ones are on the verge of calling authorities to have Linda forcibly removed from the home if she doesn't clean up. Then, in the night's second new episode (10pm), "Stanks & Anne," the Stanks have hoarded themselves out of their home and are facing the loss of their property if they cannot get it up to code. Anne is in love with Christmas! Her diabetic husband is at risk for life threatening injuries trying to survive in her enormous collection of seasonal decor. If Anne doesn't take Christmas down once and for all, her husband will leave her for his own physical safety.

After a 20-month break, HOARDERS returned for a new season on Tuesday, March 5, 2019 from 8-10pm ET/PT on A&E.

With hoards in Florida, Washington, Indiana, Massachusetts and Alaska, HOARDERS' team of experts come together to help families understand the impact of this devastating mental disorder while racing against the clock to help clean the hoards and avert crisis. In the two-hour season opener, Andy and Becky feel it is their constitutional right to live however they choose, even if that's among 250 tons of hoard. Now they're in a battle with the city government that could end in them going to jail and losing their home.
