BET Plus Renews ‘First Wives Club’ for Season 2

Series Based on Iconic Film and Book of the Same Name

Streamer BET Plus has greenlit “First Wives Club” from Paramount Television Studios a second season, which follows best friends Ari (Ryan Michelle Bathe), Hazel (Jill Scott), and Bree (Michelle Buteau) as they reunited to help each other through rough patches in their lives. The logline: Tired of always being the ones to make sacrifices, they vowed to prioritize their friendship and have more fun. Along the way, the women learned that as long as they have each other, there’s nothing they can’t do.

“Tracy Oliver’s ‘First Wives Club’ has been hugely successful on BET Plus, served as one of our signature originals at launch and helped us quickly become the largest African American focused SVOD service,” said Devin Griffin, general manager of BET Plus. “Our subscribers loved season one and are eagerly awaiting season two.”

Based on the film and book of the same name, the show was originally set up at TV Land before moving to Paramount Network. It then moved to BET before landing at BET Plus. Production of “First Wives Club” is set to begin on the second season in September in Atlanta.
