Plot Synopsis

WAHLBURGERS is a reality series that follows Mark and Donnie Wahlberg's family, as their older brother, Chef Paul, and their mother, Alma, run the family restaurant business. Even with his brothers' full support, this proves no easy task for Chef Paul, as he gets caught up in a whirlwind of bustling kitchens, an impending expansion, a new assistant, and everything in between. Named after the family matriarch and her nine children, their first restaurant business venture, Alma Nove, launched at the Hingham Shipyard on Boston's south shore. Just over a year later, the family opened its second restaurant, Wahlburgers, a retro-themed burger joint that celebrated the boys' careers. Now, the Wahlberg clan has big plans for the hometown burger joint that touts the family name, but they can't seem to agree on their next move. When Chef Paul and Donnie find the perfect second location in Boston, it's up to Paul to convince Mark that they should keep Wahlburgers local rather than expand internationally. But will Mark get his wish when he gets Paul to check out a new place in Toronto? In an attempt to make things easier for Chef Paul, his mother convinces him to finally hire an assistant, Kari Burke, who becomes his Operations Manager after a series of connections led her to Alma. Then, when Donnie brings home girlfriend Jenny McCarthy, Alma and Paul engage in a sauce-off, while Paul also works on a special burger of the month for Jenny. In addition to being home base for the Wahlbergs, Wahlburgers is also a gathering spot for the gang from the old neighborhood, including Mark and Donnie's original entourage, Johnny 'Drama' Alves and Henry 'Nacho' Laun, and Mark's childhood friend and former partner-in-crime, Billy Leonard. WAHLBURGERS returned for its second season on Wednesday, August 13, 2014 at 10pm ET/PT on A&E. In the new season, Mark and Donnie juggle their roles at the restaurant while working abroad. Mark heads to China to promote a film and convinces 'Drama' and 'Nacho' to tag along. Donnie is on tour in London with New Kids on the Block when fiancee Jenny McCarthy arranges for a surprise visitor to stave off his homesickness. Back in Boston, Paul gets in over his head when he joins a fantasy football league, so he seeks help from family friend Rob Gronkowski. Brandon finds himself caught in a prank war with Kari, while Alma has a new love in her life -- her new smartphone. On Wednesday, January 7, 2015 at 10pm ET/PT, A&E premiered the third season of WAHLBURGERS. In Season 3, brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg continue to expand the family burger franchise while balancing a series of personal events -- including Paul's trip to Mark's new house, Donnie's wedding and visits from the Red Sox's David Ortiz and Boston Bruin ice hockey legend Bobby Orr. Donnie's band New Kids On The Block is honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and Mark gets Johnny 'Drama' a part in his film TED 2. In the season opener, Donnie's Chicago-based wedding proves to be a challenge for Alma who doesn't fly but certainly can't miss her son's wedding. Donnie finds the perfect solution -- a tour bus. He enlists his nephew Brandon to accompany Alma on the journey to Chicago to make sure she arrives in time for the wedding. A&E premiered the fourth season of WAHLBURGERS on Wednesday, July 15, 2015 at 9:30pm ET/PT. In the season opener, "License to Grill," Paul takes a trip with his kids to visit Mark, Rhea and the kids in Los Angeles. A simple family BBQ turns into a battle of Wahlberg clans during a game of touch football. Mark utilizes his home field advantage to torment Paul. Meanwhile, back in Hingham, Kari discovers that Alma once lived with Mark in Los Angeles. Kari finally gets Alma to tell her about her life in Hollywood. During the rest of Season 4, Mark promotes two feature films, TED 2 and ENTOURAGE, while balancing life at home with his wife Rhea. Paul and Mark head to Paris for the TED 2 press junket and leave some time for sightseeing. Mark also makes his directorial debut as he teams up with Diddy for the new Wahlburgers jingle video featuring Johnny Drama. The brothers push Paul to expand the franchise as New York City gets its first location with additional restaurants opening in Boston and Los Angeles. Donnie and Alma take on the Big Apple and later visit the new Coney Island location and of course get into some mother-son shenanigans. Meanwhile, Donnie is on a multi-city tour with New Kids on the Block, but still makes time to connect with his family and the growing business. Paul and Alma hold down the fort at the family's two Hingham restaurants, Alma Nove and Wahlburgers. Brother Bob tries to get involved in the growing burger business and nephew Brandon moves in with Alma in order to save some cash. Season 5 of WAHLBURGERS premiered on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 9-10pm ET/PT on A&E, as brothers Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg continue to expand their burger restaurant business with special guest appearances by music mogul P. Diddy, NASCAR champion Dale Earnhardt, Jr., and even Pope Francis I himself.

The music video will be Drama's Wahlburgers Rap Jingle and shot down in New Orleans where Mark is filming his latest movie. Mark enlists music mogul Sean "P Diddy" Combs and movie director Peter Berg to help mentor Drama.

In the season opener, "Paul-itics," Donnie puts a ballot box in Wahlburgers so customers can vote on who they think Alma's favorite son is.
