An A&E show has received an order from the network for 18 more episodes. A&E announced today that it is picking up additional episodes of the reality series "Wahlburgers," which features the Boston-area burger business of Mark, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg.

Announcing the order was David McKillop, General Manager and Executive Vice President of A&E.

"Since its premiere on January 22, 2014, ‘Wahlburgers’ has seen audience growth week after week, averaging 3.5 million total viewers in its first season to date," A&E announced.

Said McKillop: “Viewers are responding to the heartwarming dynamics of Boston’s first family as they balance living in the Hollywood spotlight and growing a business. We look forward to seeing what the Wahlbergs cook up next.”

The announcement noted that the show "gives a behind-the-scenes look into one of Boston’s most well-known families, the Wahlbergs. Brothers Mark and Donnie head back to their hometown to join forces with their professed ‘most talented sibling,’ Paul, in their tasty business venture. A homage to their humble beginnings, the hamburger restaurant is home base for the gang from the old neighborhood, including the real Johnny ‘Drama’ and their spirited mother Alma."
