VH1 will debut the second season of the reality show Mob Wives on January 1, 2012 at 8pm ET/PT. The network’s also set to unveil the spin-off, Mob Wives: Chicago, with a new bunch of ‘Syndicate Sisters’ next spring. Mob Wives: Chicago will use Al Capone’s home as the backdrop.
“Our viewers connected so strongly with our New York cast that we were skeptical about trying to repeat that success,” stated Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President, Original Programming & Production. “But once we met these ladies from Chicago and heard their truly unbelievable stories, we knew that viewers would become just as captivated as we did. These women’s life experiences may be far different from our own, but their current struggles to stand on their own two feet are relatable to everyone.”
“Audiences will be blown away by the larger-than-life characters with their own unique stories to tell,” added Jimmy Fox, Executive Producer and Head of Creative Development for Electus.
Mob Wives Season Two Synopsis:
“The second season of Mob Wives picks up where the first left off – with each cast member dealing with major personal life issues. The rift between Karen and Drita is far from over – will they ever be able to ‘bury the hatchet’? Renee goes under the knife for major plastic surgery that may have some unexpected consequences, while also contemplating her future with her ex-husband Junior. Drita is considering her options when it comes to leaving her husband Lee – while Carla’s relationship with her estranged husband Joe may take an unexpected twist. And, of course, everyone wants to know what’s in Karen’s soon-to-be-released book – the one she moved back to New York to write!”
