Total Bellas, the Total Divas spin-off featuring "The Bellas and Their Fellas," is getting renewed for a second season.
Season 1 followed twin sisters Nikki and Brie Bella and the men in their life, Nikki's boyfriend John Cena and Brie's husband Daniel Bryan. Some of the main story lines included Nikki's recovery from career-threatening neck surgery and Bryan's struggle with depression after multiple concussions forced him to retire prematurely.
Season 2 is said to revolve around Brie's pregnancy and Nikki moving in with her sister to help support her. Bryan and Cena will both be along for the ride.
Here is the press release:
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.”
The Season 1 premiere ranked #19 in the 18-49 demographic, and did comparable numbers to the Season 5 finale of Total Divas.
Season 6 of Total Divas premieres tonight on E! at 8/7c.
