‘Total Divas’ set to return for second season
LOS ANGELES – E! announced today that the network has picked up a second season of WWE’s smash-hit reality program, “Total Divas”!
“Total Divas” – E!’s strongest new original series in 2013 in total viewers – is scheduled to return in early 2014 for a second season which will feature The Bella Twins’ 30th birthday, Brie’s journey to the altar with Daniel Bryan and much more.
The fan favorite reality series pulls back the curtain on WWE and takes viewers inside the lives of WWE’s Divas, both inside and outside the ring. Produced by WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions, the series, which premiered July 28, follows the Divas as they struggle with the challenges of life in the spotlight, a grueling work and travel schedule and the intense competition for a top spot in WWE.
Season one, which currently ranks as cable’s top-rated reality series in its Sunday time slot in key demographics, follows the private and often complicated lives of some of WWE’s most popular Divas, including Nikki & Brie Bella, Natalya, Cameron & Naomi and Divas-in-training Eva Marie and JoJo.
Along with “Total Divas,” E! also renewed “Hello Ross” and “Eric & Jessie: Game On.” “We are excited to bring back this diverse trio of successful series for second seasons,” said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development, E! “Each of these series feature compelling personalities that offer unique stories and points of view from the world of pop culture. It’s exciting to have this strong line-up of returning series in addition to our other popular core franchises to help propel us into 2014.”
