You don’t really know someone until you’ve walked a mile in their shoes.

That mantra is at the center of Andrew Jenks’ acclaimed documentary series for MTV, World of Jenks, which will return for a second season March 4. In 10, hour-long episodes, Jenks will follow three individuals struggling with difficult – and topical – problems over the course of a year. This season will focus on autism (with season one participant Chad continuing to show his day-to-day life), as well as a woman, Kaylin, dealing with cancer and D-Real, a dancer and Oakland resident who recently lost his brother to gun violence.

Check out the exclusive trailer below:

World of Jenks premieres March 4 at 11:00 ET on MTV.
