WWE issued the following press release to tout the renewal of The Miz & Mrs. reality show for a second season.
NEW YORK, NY — August 14, 2018 – USA Network has ordered additional episodes of freshman series MIZ & MRS, commissioning 14, half-hour episodes to air in 2019. Produced by WWE® and Bunim/Murray Productions and starring married WWE Superstars Mike “The Miz” Mizanin and Maryse Mizanin, MIZ & MRS’s first six episodes are currently airing Tuesdays at 10/9c. The additional back-half order announcement was made tonight on SMACKDOWN LIVE®.
Following the humorous and hectic personal lives of the larger-than-life WWE Superstars, MIZ & MRS scored big as USA’s top unscripted launch in more than seven years, averaging 1.7M P2+ viewers during the first three premiere episodes.
“One word about the renewal: AWESOME!,” said The Miz.
“Thanks to all of the WWE fans out there who wanted a window to our crazy lives,” added Maryse. “Be careful what you wish for!”
MIZ & MRS gives fans an unfiltered look at the power couple’s lives as they adapt to becoming first-time parents while juggling their fast-paced lifestyle, a cross-country move from Los Angeles to Austin, and the intense demands of their WWE schedule. From baby first-aid classes and pregnancy photo shoots to big showdowns at WrestleMania®, MIZ & MRS proves that the outrageous in-ring personalities of The Miz and Maryse are no act.
Produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions, MIZ & MRS complements USA’s WWE programming, which includes five hours of live programming each week, 52 weeks a year, with MONDAY NIGHT RAW® and SMACKDOWN LIVE. Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam-Chazan and Russell Jay serve as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions, and Kevin Dunn serves as executive producer for WWE. The Miz and Maryse are also executive producers.
Powell’s POV: The second season will have more than double the amount of episodes of the six-episode season one. The renewal is no surprise given that each episode has topped at least 1.2 million viewers thus far. Airing the show after Smackdown has turned out to be a great move. The big question is what will happen to the show once Smackdown moves to Fox in October 2019.
