PASADENA, CA, JANUARY 7, 2011 - A&E Network has picked up a second season of the original hit real life series "Storage Wars."

"Storage addict" and 32-year bidding veteran Darrell and his son Brandon Sheets, second hand store owner Jarrod Schultz, entrepreneur Dave Hester and antique collector Barry Weiss return for more high stakes fun as they all try to out-bid one another in the pursuit of storage treasure.
