Is this a new title or a new season?

I have a question about policies concerning new titles versus new seasons.

To explain more easily - there is a National Geographic tv series with these seasons and episodes

World's Weirdest: Season 1 - Episode 1 - Freaks In The Ocean
World's Weirdest: Season 1 - Episode 2 - Freaks On Land
World's Weirdest: Season 1 - Episode 3 - Freaks Of The Sky
....(altogether there are 3 seasons)

And then there is:
World's Weirdest: Animal Taboo - Episode 1 - Happy Hour
World's Weirdest: Animal Taboo - Episode 2 - Friends With Benefits
World's Weirdest: Animal Taboo - Episode 3 - Swingers

World's Weirdest: Brains and Babies - Episode 1 - Bizarre Babies
World's Weirdest: Brains and Babies - Episode 2 - Animal Einsteins
....(and others)

What's the correct way of deciding whether the "World's Weirdest: Animal Taboo" is a new standalone title or a new season of the "World's Weirdest"?

At the moment the episodes (Happy hour,...Animal Einsteins) are listed as Season 4 of World's Weirdest, so it is not clear they belong under somethig called Animal Taboo or Brains and Babies.

Also if I add a missing "season" of World's Weirdest: Animal Faces - should i add it as season 5?

Alternatively if I wanted to create a new title(s) for each of these "seasons", is it possible to move the above episodes under the new titles?

Thanks for an advice!

I’m not familiar with this particular series, but a few questions comes to mind:
- Does these series/seasons include the same (or very similar) cast (hosts, recurring guests, experts etc), main premise, style, graphics, lenght etc?
- Are there several years between the series/seasons?
- What does the official site of the series/production company/network say?
