"Hoarders" Season 6 on A&E delves into the world of extreme hoarding, a mental disorder marked by an obsessive need to collect things, even if the items are worthless, hazardous or unsanitary. Whether facing eviction, the loss of their children, or divorce, all are desperately in need of help as they embark on the biggest emotional transformations of their lives.

Hoarders find it impossible to throw things away, even when the items threaten to impair their daily life. Each episode of "Hoarders" takes a fascinating look at the lives of two different people whose inability to part with their belongings is so out of control that they are on the verge of a personal crisis. Whether they're facing eviction, the loss of their children, jail time, or divorce, they are all desperately in need of help. The series captures the drama as experts work to put each hoarder on the road to recovery. But cleaning is just the first step, and healing is not guaranteed. For some, throwing away even the tiniest thing — a sponge, a button, an empty box — is so overwhelming that they will not be able to allow the cleaning to be completed ... no matter the consequences. For others, professional help and an organizer's guidance give them the strength to recover. At the end of each episode viewers will find out who has been able to keep their hoarding behavior at bay. And who, despite help, is still lost inside this painful disease.

Season 5

Season 5 features some of the series most dramatic moments and emotional transformations to date. One man's hoard is so out of control that officials have called in the Fire Marshall because his home presents a fire hazard to the neighborhood. The grief of losing her husband led one woman to fill her home with a bizarre collection of dead animals including possums, birds and field mice. An ex-marine faces losing his home unless he comes to terms with his extreme hoarding.

Season 6

This season the experts take on a 24-hour job by attempting to spend the entire night in each house to see exactly how each hoarder has adapted to their environment. They don't always make it, but by literally walking a mile in their shoes, they hope to get a better understanding of how to help each hoarder cope with their inability to part with their belongings and clean-up for good.

The season premiere introduces Debra, who has maxed out all her credit cards on the mountains of clothing piled in her house and Patricia, who has amassed 30 years' worth of cardboard boxes. This season will also feature Alvin, who is living out of his bathroom, outfitted with a TV and cooler, because it's the only livable room left in his house; Benette and Vernon, a separated couple living under the same roof of their historic Victorian mansion that is crammed to the gills with junk; Linda, whose hoard consists of doomsday supplies in preparation for the apocalypse; and Shanna, who has 15 years' worth of her own bottled urine and feces.
