Apprentice renewed for a sixth season, which will be filmed in LA

NBC has ordered a sixth season of The Apprentice, and for that season, the show will leave New York and be filmed in LA, or more broadly, “Southern California,” according to NBC. The fourth season is wrapping up now, while the fifth season was produced this fall and will air sometime next year.

The Apprentice 6 will have “new challenges, twists and surprises — [and] also will feature tasks indigenous to and emblematic of the new locale,” NBC said in a press release. There’s no scheduled air date yet.

In a statement, producer Mark Burnett said, “Donald has so many recent West Coast projects, that it made perfect sense to change locations and along with it change the flavor of the weekly tasks. Seeing Donald operate in Southern California will provide yet more insight into his remarkable world.” And, as it turns out, Trump will be just as full of shit on the west coast as he is on the east coast.
