'Storm Chasers' Sneak Peek: Check Out the Action-Packed New Season (VIDEO)

Discovery's 'Storm Chasers'The 'Storm Chasers' are back, and judging by all the insane natural disasters we've seen on the Weather Channel and in our own cities this year, they're gonna have a very action-packed new season.

The 2011 storm season was unlike anything this country has seen in a long time, and the guys of the Dominator, TIV and Twistex teams were right at the heart of the storms, including the tragic and infamous tornado outbreak of over 200 twisters that tore through Alabama and Mississippi back in April.

In their continuing mission to figure out the science of these storms to save lives with better early warning systems, the guys have also upgraded their high-tech storm-chasing vehicles this season, so look out for the reveal of Reed Timmer's new Dominator 2.

We've got two new clips from the season premiere (Sun., Sept. 25, 9PM ET on Discovery) -- take a look after the jump and tell us what you think.

I'm quite surprised. Sean had finished his movie at the end of last season and it's already in iMax theatres, so as far as I was aware, that was it for him, no more chasing. Additionally, Tim Samaras posted on his blog earlier in the year that He and His team had been dumped from the show without warning just before the start of the last storm season. His website is under construction at the moment, so I can find that post or any subsequent news there, however, the Twistex blog mentions they had to cut things short this year due to budget constraints (as Tim had mentioned, the project relied on a stipend from discovery channel).
So, in these previews, are we seeing old footage from the previous storm season? Are they just inserting B roll footage to stop the show from seemingly becoming the Reed Timmer power hour?
Speaking of Reed, I understand he's got a new business partner whom has injected quite a bit of funds and has subsequently become rather prominent on the team and the show.
