WE tv has renewed its freshman reality series Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition, the network announced Tuesday.
The series will return for a 10-episode sophomore campaign in 2020. The first season of the show -- a spinoff of WE’s Marriage Boot Camp franchise -- averaged 1.3 million viewers through its run -- the highest-rated season in franchise history, according to the network.
The series features famous couples from hip hop’s elite as they undergo counseling to ultimately decide whether their relationship is worth saving or whether it’s time to part ways forever. The couples for season two will be announced at a later date, according to the network.
“We are thrilled that Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition struck a chord with both longtime fans and new Thursday night viewers to make this newest extension a wild success,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv in a statement. “With our strategic expansion of the Marriage Boot Camp universe, we’ve tapped into a completely new and enthusiastic audience for this longstanding franchise.”
