Dr. Pimple Popper is ready for its third season premiere. TLC has set a premiere date for the new season and announced plans for a holiday special as well. The series follows Dr. Sandra Lee as she helps patients with skin conditions that fall out of the norm. Some of the cases in season three of this series first appeared on Dr. Pimple Popper: Before the Pop. In that series, Dr. Lee consulted with patients virtually due to the pandemic.
TLC revealed more about the return of the series and the special with a press release.
“Back by popular demand, new episodes of fan-favorite DR. PIMPLE POPPER will premiere on TLC Monday, December 21 at 9pm/ET/PT with a holiday-themed special, DR. PIMPLE POPPER: SEASON’S SQUEEZINGS, and settle in to its new timeslot the following week with all new episodes showcasing some of the most outrageous cases yet, beginning Monday, December 28 at 9pm ET/PT.
Pop-a-holics can celebrate because the doctor is in! This new season of DR. PIMPLE POPPER will take viewers through the powerful and emotional journeys of each patient with skin conditions that are preventing them from feeling their best. The episodes will feature Dr. Lee’s most challenging cases to date, which were introduced in BEFORE THE POP, which aired earlier this year and focused on telemedicine appointments due to the pandemic. Now, armed with her splash mask and sensitive bedside manner, Dr. Lee will roll up her sleeves and prepare to take on those cases and others, with the hope of helping them to lead lives free of embarrassment, while giving them a boost of self-confidence.
Some of the cases this season are so extreme, Dr. Lee teams up with specialists in order to provide the best outcome possible. Some examples of what viewers will see in these episodes are: an adorable eight-year-old girl—the youngest patient yet on the series—with an extreme case of psoriasis who would like to be a dermatologist when she grows up; a man with severe keloids on the back of his head and scalp that are so challenging, it will take two doctors and, an incredibly rare case of nevus sebaceous that covers much of a woman’s face.
DR. PIMPLE POPPER features Dr. Sandra Lee, one of America’s top dermatologists, as well as Instagram and YouTube sensation, as she treats patients with unusual skin conditions and helps them to lead a life free of embarrassment– one needle, pop and scalpel at a time.”
