Viewers apparently couldn’t get enough of the potent comedic combo of Jill Scott, Michelle Buteau, and Ryan Michelle Bathe as the trio of ladies led the BET+ remake of the classic 1996 revenge comedy ‘First Wives Club‘ (which originally starred Goldie Hawn, Bette Midler, and Diane Keaton).
After bringing some serious doses of funny for its inaugural season, the series – which famously sees ‘Girls Trip’ writer Tracy Oliver attached – has been renewed for a follow-up.
While no official premiere date has been revealed for its sophomore season, Deadline confirms BET+ has ordered a second set of episodes for the hilarious series.
Deadline also reports:
“The first season of First Wives Club was predominantly written and directed by female filmmakers including Jamie Babbit, Anu Valia, Ryan Case, Alison Brown, Leila Cohan-Miccio, Stella Meghie, Rachelle R. Williams, Yvette Foy and Sam Bailey.”
