A reality television show whose title became part of the cultural lexicon is about to roar back to life. WE tv announced today that it is rebooting “Bridezillas,” which ended its run in 2013 after 10 seasons.
The original series launched the WE tv hit “Marriage Boot Camp,” which recently wrapped up its eighth season.
“Bridezillas” will return in 2018 with 10 new episodes.
“From the beginning, ‘Bridezillas’ was nothing short of pop culture phenomenon and a brand-defining show for WE tv,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv. “Years after saying goodbye to our last ‘Bridezilla,’ we have been asked consistently to bring this show back by viewers and fans. With its built-in fanbase and continued cultural relevance, the ‘Bridezillas’ franchise is a strategic growth asset that we can leverage across our business and we are thrilled to be bringing it back to WE tv.”
Casting is currently under way across the country for the 2018 series.
“The series famously spotlights so-called ‘normal’ women who have turned into ‘Bridezillas’ by their upcoming nuptials,” WE tv says in today’s announcement. “Each episode will follow two hilariously unhinged brides as they hurtle toward the altar. We meet the brides and their grooms, learn their backgrounds, relationship histories, and see how the wedding has taken over their lives. As we move closer to the brides’ big day, tempers and tensions flare, the patience of loved ones is tested and monumental meltdowns become inevitable as our ‘Bridezillas’ are pushed to the edge — all in the name of planning the ‘perfect’ wedding.”
“Bridezillas” is executive produced by Laura Halperin, with Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy executive producing for WE tv.
