A cable reality series has been picked up for two more seasons. Announcing the renewal of “Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars” for seasons four and five was WE tv, which noted that each season will consist of 10 episodes.
“The just completed third season was the highest-rated of the franchise, averaging over 1.2 million total viewers, up +32% over season two,” the channel said in its announcement. “The season also ranked as the second most social cable reality show on Friday nights.”
Said Marc Juris, WE tv’s president: “This two-season renewal is the direct result of the show’s incredible performance and the overwhelming fan engagement we see each week. As one of WE tv’s signature series in the relationship space, the ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ franchise is a perfect combination of real people, relatable situations and dynamic storytelling.”
The series “places five couples together under one roof to undergo intense counseling and exercises, which test the boundaries of their relationships,” the network says in its announcement. “Boot Camp Directors Jim and Elizabeth Carroll push the couples to their limits, both physically and emotionally, in order to save their troubled unions.”
The show is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Adam Freeman, Adam Reed, Erin Kelly, and Leslie Greif, with Antonia Mattia as co-executive producer. The executive producers for WE tv are Lauren Gellert, EVP of development and original programming, and Suzanne Murch, VP of original programming.
