A reality series that racked up double-digit ratings increases over the course of its most recent season and has emerged as the signature series for WE tv was just picked up by the cable net for a new season.
WE tv announced that it will premiere a new season of “Bridezillas” in 2019, with 10 hour-long episodes of the show WE tv says is “the most outrageous reality show of all time.”
“The docu-series about brides gone wild made a successful return to television earlier this year after a multi-year hiatus on WE tv, experiencing double-digit ratings growth over the course of the season,” the cable net said in its announcement.
Added Marc Juris, WE tv president: “After a successful reboot of this pop culture phenomenon, we have found that being a bride, and more importantly a ‘Bridezilla,’ never goes out of style. We have been thrilled with the glowing reception from longtime fans as well as new fans of the show. ‘Bridezillas’ came roaring back with a whole new layer of drama thanks to the ubiquity of social media, making the show more relevant than ever, and we’re excited to see what outrageousness unfolds during this upcoming season.”
The announcement notes that the series “famously spotlights so-called ‘normal’ women who have turned into ‘Bridezillas’ by their upcoming nuptials. Each episode follows 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. Executive producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and Angela Molloy. Executive producer for DCD Rights Limited is Nicky Davies Williams.
