The First Wives Club reboot is already on its second network.
Paramount Network has cancelled the comedy-drama ahead of its January premiere, though the first season will still air — on sibling network BET.
The move comes as Paramount Network evaluates its portfolio.
“We are thrilled that Tracy Oliver and Paramount Television’s First Wives Club will be coming to BET Networks. We have been big fans of Tracy, the project and its incredible cast all along. The concept she has for the series fits perfectly with our programming strategy of character-driven content anchored in the black experience, and it aligns seamlessly with our core audience. We are currently working closely with Paramount Television on Boomerang and are excited to continue working with them on this project.”
First Wives Club might still be alive at BET, but history suggests the 11th hour switch doesn’t bode well for the shows Season 2 renewal chances. Stay tuned…
