Danielle Colby and Mike Wolfe, stars of 'American Pickers' are coming to Louisiana in February looking for antiques and the good stories about them.

"American Pickers" is traveling South again. And you might have, or know of, just what they're looking for.

The popular History TV series plans to film episodes in Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama in February.

Heading into its 23rd season, the show stars antique hunters Mike Wolfe and brother Robbie, along with Danielle Colby. Longtime "Pickers" star Frank Fritz officially exited the show in July.

"We're looking for leads throughout the state, specifically interesting characters with fascinating items and lots of them," says "American Pickers" producer Sarah Perkins. "The way we find people and collections for our show is through spreading the word far and wide so that people know we’re coming to town."

Fans know the "Pickers" drill but for those unfamiliar, the series follows the "pickers" as they roll into a location — usually an old barn, store or house — looking for, according to the show, "America’s most valuable antiques."

But it's not just about the antiques; they also want the interesting stories surrounding them.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, network officials stress that the show will be following all guidelines and protocols for safe filming outlined by Louisiana and the Centers for Disease Control.

So, if you, or someone you know, "has a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques that the 'Pickers' can spend the better part of the day looking through," send a name, phone number, location and description of the collection with photos to cineflix.com/shows/american-pickers/ or call (646) 493-2184.
