Our favorite party of three is back for season two! The First Wives Club will be returning to BET+!
In an official statement, BET+ confirmed that a followup season was picked up for the hit show. The Tracy Oliver executive-produced dramedy stars Jill Scott, Ryan Michelle Bathe and Michelle Buteau, who play best friends Hazel, Ari and Bree (respectively). Season two of FWC will pick up where the first season left off, showing the trio of women go through their various marital woes, while the longtime friends console each other, and offer support during tough times.
“Tracy Oliver’s First Wives Club has been hugely successful on BET+, [and] served as one of our signature originals at launch, and helped us quickly become the largest African American focused SVOD service,” said Devin Griffin, General Manager, BET+. “Our subscribers loved season one and are eagerly awaiting season two.”
Oliver also stated that she is “overwhelmed” by the support for season one, and is looking forward to the next chapter of First Wives.
“I’m overwhelmed by all the love and support the first season has received from our audience. I’m beyond excited to work with BET and this amazing, hilarious cast on a second season! Let the hijinks and shenanigans begin,” said Tracy Oliver.
Principal photography is set to begin in September 2020, in Atlanta.
