Well, that didn’t take long at all!
Just a couple of days before Christmas, rumor went around that The Miz and Maryse — who are currently expecting — might also be expecting to get their very own reality show spinoff of Total Divas, just like Total Bellas before them. And now, much like the Mizanin family, the Total franchise is also growing by one, as the Miz/Maryse spinoff series is now officially a reality.
On Monday, WWE announced the details of the new series (which is, for now at least, sadly just a mini-series), which will surprisingly not air on E! like Total Divas and Total Bellas, but on the USA Network.
… And oh yeah: the show has the best title of all time: Miz and Mrs.
Yes, that’s real. It’s really going to be a reality show, airing this year, called Miz and Mrs. We absolutely cannot frickin’ wait. Unlike Total Divas and Total Bellas, the new show will only be a half hour long, and will only consist of six episodes (again; for now). But this is another way of ensuring that the WWE reality machine will continue to air something like year-round, and it also means IT’S NOT IMPOSSIBLE FOR THERE TO ONE DAY BE A LANA AND RUSEV SPINOFF.
From the official announcement:
USA Network has greenlit “Miz and Mrs.,” a docuseries chronicling the lives of The Miz and Maryse. The six-episode, half-hour series will feature the married pair, known for being larger than life both in and out of the ring, as the Superstars become parents for the first time.
Produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions and expected to air in 2018, “Miz and Mrs.” will complement USA’s WWE programming, which includes five hours of live programming each week, 52 weeks a year, with Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE.
“As the exclusive television home for WWE’s flagship programming, USA Network is excited to give this passionate fanbase even more of two of WWE’s most colorful Superstars, The Miz and Maryse,” said Heather Olander, SVP of Alternative Development and Production. ““Miz and Mrs.” is an intimate, behind-the-scenes glimpse at this iconic couple as they face one of their most exciting challenges yet – becoming parents.”
““Miz and Mrs.” will undoubtedly be the most must-see show on television,” said Miz and Maryse. “We can’t wait to share this next chapter of our lives with our fans as we get ready to welcome our daughter into this world.”
Can you tell we’re stoked? Because we are fully stoked. Bring on the Mizanin show. Bring on the Rusev spinoff. Bring on the Nia/Alexa maxi-series. Give us all of it. We need it in our veins, always.
