The ABC Television Network has ordered 13 new two-hour episodes of the hit series Extreme Weight Loss, a unique, non-competitive show about weight loss that documents the unprecedented 365-day journeys of courageous, "super-obese" people. Season 4 is currently airing on Tuesdays (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET/PT) with its highest ratings in more than two seasons. The series is produced by Eyeworks USA.

In Season 5, there will also be three special editions, "Extreme Weight Loss: Love Can't Weight,” in which Chris & Heidi Powell will help three couples get in shape -- both physically and emotionally – for each of their weddings.
