STORM CHASERS Season Premiere Sunday, September 25 at 9 PM E/P on Discovery

(Silver Spring, Md.) It's been a year of historic and tragic loss, unimaginable damage and an earth shattering reminder of nature's force and power. Now get the whole story on this year's record setting tornados as STORM CHASERS returns for an all new season on Discovery Channel premiering Sunday, September 25 at 9 PM E/P.

Extreme meteorologist Reed Timmer, IMAX filmmaker Sean Casey and veteran chaser Tim Samaras are back tracking the monster tornados that made headlines throughout this past spring storm season. STORM CHASERS teams witnessed first-hand the infamous tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011 when nearly 200 tornados were recorded and over 300 lives lost in just a single day. Their exclusive, never-before-seen footage combined with meteorological expertise and years of chasing experience piece together a day unprecedented in history.

"STORM CHASERS is a completely adrenalized front row seat to the power of nature and how it fuels the passion of dedicated meteorologists and researchers. This season we are especially mindful of the important work of chasers to improve warning systems," said Clark Bunting, President and General Manager of Discovery Channel.

In addition to the monster storms of Spring 2011, the new season of STORM CHASERS features new chase vehicles including the debut of Timmer's "Dominator 2" and cutting edge research tools such as sophisticated radar equipment and air cannons.

Sean Casey, having successfully completed his IMAX film (Tornado Alley is now playing in theaters and science centers across the country) has now set his sights on another storm chasing first: filming tornados in 3D.

Twistex's newly revamped chase vehicle has all the bells and whistles with new doppler radar and probes but will its leader Tim Samaras alienate the team with his new aggressive style?

The stakes and challenges are clearly high for all three teams. Now the race is on to learn more about these monsters of Mother Nature, improve early warning systems and save lives. Hold on for television's most powerful hour.
