Jada Pinkett Smith will be having more conversations at the red table.

Facebook announced Wednesday it will renew Pinkett Smith’s Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, for 20 more episodes. The news comes less than a year after the talk show aired its first episode in May 2018.

The popular show centers around intimate conversations the 47-year-old entertainer has with famous guests, such as Toni Braxton and Tiffany Haddish, to name a few notable people. Smith’s mother, Adrienne Banfield-Jones, and daughter, Willow Smith, co-star on the series, and the ladies have touched on tough topics, including addiction, domestic abuse and self-harm.

Red Table Talk has over 5 million followers and 1 million likes on Facebook, impressive stats the company’s execs attribute to the show’s authenticity.

“Original shows on Watch should strike a chord in the broader cultural zeitgeist or serve a group of people with something they can’t get elsewhere,” Facebook head of video products Paresh Rajwat and Tamara Hrivnak, head of music business development and partnerships, said in a statement.

They continued: “The women of ‘Red Table Talk’… have done that through their candid conversations about things like addiction, loss, domestic violence, race relations and more, sharing their truths and involving their audience along the way.”

Red Table Talk‘s popularity reached a fever pitch in February when Pinkett Smith sat down with Kylie Jenner’s former best friend, Jordyn Woods. The 21-year-old — who also happens to be the Smiths’ unofficial niece — sat down to discuss her supposed involvement in a cheating scandal centering around Khloé Kardashian and NBA star Tristan Thompson.
