Street Outlaws New Orleans
Series Premieres Monday, February 22 at 9PM ET/PT
Street racing is exploding across the country and taking new form, with racers organizing exhilarating, underground street racing leagues and establishing teams to represent their respective cities. One of those fledgling teams is now featured in the new Discovery Channel series: STREET OUTLAWS: NEW ORLEANS. The new series, which premieres Monday, February 22 at 9pm ET/PT on Discovery, follows a motley crew of street racers in The Big Easy as they band together to prove they are the nation’s fastest. Featured on Discovery’s Motor Mondays, the original STREET OUTLAWS is Monday night’s #1 cable series for men (M25-54, M18-49, M18-34; excl. sports). Last season was the series’ most-watched (P2+) and highest-rated ever, and now they’re taking on New Orleans.
Kye Kelley is no stranger to the street racing circuit, having dominated the winner-take-all “Cash Days” – seen on last season’s STREET OUTLAWS – against 32 of the nation’s most elite racers, including Oklahoma City’s fastest. With his winning ’92 Camaro “The Shocker,” Kelley heads back to the Bayou to defend his title and build a crew of the fastest racers in the Southeast. However, now with a target on his back, Kelley must quickly adjust to life at the top.
In addition to keeping his crown, Kelley wants to put The Big Easy on the map for street racing. Rallying a team of New Orleans racers will prove to be a challenge with high stakes, bigger battles, more smack talk and faster cars than this city’s ever seen.
STREET OUTLAWS: NEW ORLEANS is produced for Discovery Channel by Pilgrim Studios; Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis are executive producers. For Discovery, Craig Coffman is executive producer, Todd Lefkowitz is coordinating producer, and Robin Humbert is associate producer.

How do you like the sound of the Street Outlaws: New Orleans TV show? Are you a fan of the original Street Outlaws series? Do you plan to check out the new series? Tell us.
Bring back the OKC crew and the ratings. New Orleans is horrible and don’t know what the producers were thinking. OKC crew makes for good television and people you could actually watch.
The new Street Outlwas New Orleans is so hard to sit though, really missing the OKC 405 boys! When will the 405 be back on the air?? Please bring back the 405, America is begging you!!
Cancel New Orleans , resume the okc ,405 groupe series !!!!
This new New Orleans street outlaws is not comparable to the OKC Street Outlaws by far. Kye Kelly might have a fast car but he does not have the skills or the leadership to guide this show to get good ratings. the OKC had character, feeling, drama, laughter and that’s why we kept watching cuz they did it in a matter that was interesting not boring. I hope that they bring back the OKC Series they are a valuable asset to Monday nights..
If you watched the OKC series then you would know that this New Orleans “kye kelly” teams are nothing but a pointless, cockyness, self centered, cast of morons, that are always looking for that approval, when they think they say something hardcore on “live” tv, they immidiately look towards the tv to make sure they got it. Its f#!+ing stupid. They should be spending their money on acting lessons instead of their cars. the illustration of this New Orleans circus is not and should not be compared to the OKC the real Street Outlaws. I understand that the Discovery Channel… Read more »
Discovery even said OKC had the best seasons ever chief and the Gang please bring back OKC their show was the best had the highest rating ever they were a great racing team even with there drama they still had it together don’t like New Orleans really messed up please bring back OKC
All about the 405 guys that was a good show . Street outlaws New Orleans those guys have the personality of a Styrofoam cup. Bring back the 405 & farm truck so we can enjoy racing or count me out
the 405 is like the real cast of fast furious. chief is toretto, sean is vince azn is clearly han, flip r.i.p. is jessy and so forth thats why we like the 405.
The 405 please don’t like the new season
Bring back the 405 **** man
I think it is bull crap that Kyle Kelly won this past week when two weeks ago he won on the same thing they said that the man lost he didn’t cross the line all the way two weeks ago and that man last week did not cross the line either at least the Oklahoma boys with honors Kyle Kelly in New Orleans are cheaters that makes me not even want to watch it anymore you got to have integrity and Kelly does not have it
Bring back the 405, I do not the new version!!!
I really like the Original Street Outlaws, but I also like Street Outlaws: New Orleans too. If you aren’t going to continue the original guys in OK, I think that you are missing a real payoff. Why not have them back to back, I know that I never miss them and there are tons of people just like me.
The New Orleans crew is terrible and the okc 405 was so much better and had better drivers and personalities and after watching kelly get beat on last nights episodes and cry about and do it over is embarrassing
Bring back the 405. So disappointed to find no more Street Outlaws on Tuesday nights back here in Oz. Hopefully Kye K might be back soon creating havoc for Big Chief, Daddy Dave and Co.
Sooner the better!!!
