After a long hiatus following season five of Total Divas, the reality show arm of WWE and E! is going nonstop in the fall and winter. The first season of Total Bellas just wrapped up last week and without taking a break, season six of Total Divas premieres on Wednesday night. The first season of Total Bellas — which focused exclusively on the Bellas, as well as their fellas — ran a scant six episodes, which was surprisingly short, although it told a pretty complete story. But despite ratings being just sort of so-so, WWE announced via press release on Wednesday that the show will return for a second season next year.
Season 2 of Total Bellas premieres in 2017 on E!
LOS ANGELES – E! announced Season 2 of Total Bellas, the spin-off of the network’s hit series Total Divas. The second season will feature eight one-hour episodes and will give viewers exclusive access as WWE Superstars Nikki Bella and John Cena temporarily relocate to Phoenix to help Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan through their first pregnancy. Season 2 of the WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions series will premiere in 2017.
In Season 1 of Total Bellas, Brie and Bryan moved to Tampa, Fla., to help Nikki and John during a time of need and now the time has come to return the favor. With The Bellas’ careers outside of the ring expanding rapidly each day, Brie’s baby bump growing by the minute and Bryan constantly traveling under his new role as General Manager of SmackDown LIVE, the soon-to-be first time parents are in need of some serious help around the house and in the office.
“We are excited to build on the success of the first season of Total Bellas by inviting viewers back for a second round of family fun with the Bellas and their fellas,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming and Development, E!. “Nikki, Brie, John and Daniel all exude copious amounts of wit, talent and strength, but it’s their openness to be completely real that has resonated with viewers and we are delighted to share an intimate look at two of WWE’s most prominent couples.”
More Bellas! More fellas! Copious amounts of wit! I’ll be writing about these shows for the rest of my life, so it’s a good thing I enjoy them almost all the time.
