Nikki Bella® and John Cena® Head To Phoenix, AZ to Help Brie Bella® and Daniel Bryan® With Their First Pregnancy When Season Two Premieres In 2017
Season Six of E!’s “Total Divas” Premieres Tonight, Wednesday November 16 at 8pm ET/PT
Los Angeles, CA – Wednesday, November 16 – E! announced today the season two pick-up of “Total Bellas,” the spin-off of the network’s hit series “Total Divas.” The second season will be eight one-hour episodes and will give viewers exclusive access as WWE Superstars Nikki Bella and John Cena temporarily relocate to Phoenix, AZ to help Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan through their first pregnancy. Season two of the WWE and Bunim-Murray Productions series will premiere in 2017.
In season one of “Total Bellas,” Brie and Daniel moved to Tampa, FL to help Nikki and John during a time of need and now the time has come to return the favor. With The Bellas careers outside of the ring expanding rapidly each day, Brie’s baby bump growing by the minute and Daniel constantly traveling under his new role as General Manager of WWE’s SmackDown Live, the soon-to-be first time parents are in need of some serious help around the house and in the office.
“We are excited to build on the success of the first season of ‘Total Bellas’ by inviting viewers back for a second round of family fun with the Bellas and their fellas,” said Jeff Olde, EVP, Programming and Development, E! “Nikki, Brie, John and Daniel all exude copious amounts of wit, talent and strength, but it’s their openness to be completely real that has resonated with viewers and we are delighted to share an intimate look at two of WWE’s most prominent couples.”
Tonight the Bella Twins will be returning to “Total Divas” when season six premieres at 8pm ET/PT on E! In addition to The Bellas, the new season will follow fan favorites Eva Marie®, Naomi® (Trinity), Natalya® (Nattie) and Paige® as they balance the non-stop action of their professional careers and the drama of their everyday lives. In addition, season six will introduce fans to WWE Superstars Lana® and Maryse® and WWE announcer Renee Young®.
