When gospel music duo Mary Mary announced that they would be taking a musical hiatus from one another to focus on solo music, spending time with God and catering to their families, many wondered what that would mean for the fate of their popular reality show, which is generally based on their careers as a gospel group. It appears that whatever the ladies will be doing as separate entities, We TV wants in on it, as it was recently announced that Mary Mary would be returning for a third season, reports Deadline.
“During the current season of Mary Mary, viewers witnessed two incredible births: Tina’s baby boy and Erica and Tina’s hit single, ‘Go Get It,’ which went on to win the duo a Grammy Award. It’s exactly this type of dimensionality that WE tv spotlights in women,” said We TV’s Lauren Gellert.
The network will begin production of 10 one-hour episodes in Los Angeles next month. As of yesterday, viewership of Mary Mary‘s second season is up 16% from the first season, with 5.2 million total viewers. It will be fairly interesting to see the ladies doing their own thing next season. Erica, who recently discussed the group’s hiatus in an interview shared that although she’s a bit nervous about doing music without her sister, she’s also excited.
“You can expect music from me, possibly a children’s book and children’s music from Tina. I think she wants to just take a break and breathe. So, that’s what we’re going to do. Of course there’s anxiety with us stepping out to do different things. We’ve been joined at the hip for the last twelve years, and so now we’re taking chances and doing different stuff. You gotta flip it up every now and again. It’s been twelve years so it’s time to flip it around,” she revealed.
Mary Mary’s Season 2 finale airs tonight at 9/8 c.
