Following the success of the one-hour pilot, which has aired about twenty times since its premiere during May of 2009, Science Channel has ordered a new series of Meteorite Men episodes.
The new series of one-hour science/adventure programs will continue to co-star meteorite hunters Steve Arnold and Geoff Notkin as they search for rare and valuable rocks from space. Eric Schotz and Ruth Rivin return as executive producers for LMNO Productions of Encino, California, and Bob Melisso will continue on a supervising producer. Sonya Bourn and Kathy Williamson joined the production team in August.

Pre-production work is already underway at some top secret sites and there will be some surprises in store for viewers in the new episodes. The new series of Meteorite Men will air in 2010 on the Science Channel. Co-host Geoff Notkin will be writing a behind-the-scenes "Making of Meteorite Men TV Diary" as part of his daily science blog, The Logical Lizard, for TucsonCitizen.com.
