It was announced on SmackDown Live this week, and after the show a press release was sent out with details:
NEW YORK, NY -- August 14, 2018 – USA Network has ordered additional episodes of freshman series MIZ & MRS, commissioning 14, half-hour episodes to air in 2019. Produced by WWE® and Bunim/Murray Productions and starring married WWE Superstars Mike “The Miz” Mizanin and Maryse Mizanin, MIZ & MRS’s first six episodes are currently airing Tuesdays at 10/9c. The additional back-half order announcement was made tonight on SMACKDOWN LIVE®.
Following the humorous and hectic personal lives of the larger-than-life WWE Superstars, MIZ & MRS scored big as USA’s top unscripted launch in more than seven years, averaging 1.7M P2+ viewers during the first three premiere episodes.
“One word about the renewal: AWESOME!,” said The Miz.
“Thanks to all of the WWE fans out there who wanted a window to our crazy lives,” added Maryse. “Be careful what you wish for!”
MIZ & MRS gives fans an unfiltered look at the power couple’s lives as they adapt to becoming first-time parents while juggling their fast-paced lifestyle, a cross-country move from Los Angeles to Austin, and the intense demands of their WWE schedule. From baby first-aid classes and pregnancy photo shoots to big showdowns at WrestleMania®, MIZ & MRS proves that the outrageous in-ring personalities of The Miz and Maryse are no act.
Produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions, MIZ & MRS complements USA’s WWE programming, which includes five hours of live programming each week, 52 weeks a year, withMONDAY NIGHT RAW® and SMACKDOWN LIVE. Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam-Chazan and Russell Jay serve as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions, and Kevin Dunn serves as executive producer for WWE. The Miz and Maryse are also executive producers.
The numbers are strong enough that WWE and USA can continue investing in it for another season or two.
