Bravo has committed to a second season of “Newlyweds: The First Year.”
The cable network’s cameras will once again follow four newly hitched couples from their wedding day to their one-year anniversary. Season 2 will star four all-new couples through the highs and lows of their first year of marriage.
Bravo didn’t say when the series will return and for how many episodes.
Season 2 will be produced by Monkey Kingdom, part of NBCUniversal International Television Production, along with Academy award-nominated documentarian Eddie Schmidt (“Twist of Faith”).
The eight-episode first season of the series followed three straight couples and one gay couple: Alaska and Kimberly, John and Kathryn, Tarz and Tina, and Blair and Jeff.
Emmy winner and Oscar-nominated documentarian Lauren Lazin executive-produced Season 1 in which the couples went through a lot of ups and downs, including dealing with distance, first babies, disapproving in-laws and fertility problems. The show averaged 1.3 million viewers per each hourlong episode.
