WE tv announced in a press release that it has ordered a second season of its original series Mary Mary just six weeks into the debut season’s successful run.
The second season begins production this month; 10 one-hour episodes will premiere on WE tv in early 2013.
The second season will follow Erica and Tina through the birth of Tina’s fifth child, their latest album release – Go Get It – a family wedding, a cross-country album tour and countless appearances and events, all while balancing their busy, growing families.
“The success of ‘Mary Mary’ is both a testament to the engaging personalities of Erica and Tina and to WE tv’s programming strategy of catering to an underserved audience of African American women,” said Lauren Gellert, WE tv’s senior vice president of original production & development.
Added Erica and Tina: “We’re super excited about season 2 — more music, more mommying, more husbands, more Goo Goo, Mitchell and Ms. Honey, and definitely more fun and chaos!”
To date, Mary Mary has been viewed by 11.1 million total viewers since its premiere on March 29, and is delivering three times WE tv’s prime time female viewership average. The season one finale airs on Thursday, May 31 at 9 pm, ET/PT.
