The season will show the ladies continuing to evolve and facing new challenges, but tensions will run high as the veterans take the newbies under their wings.
“This show was created to establish a platform for self-expression and freedom across every choice that life presents,” Shaunie Henderson said in a statement. “Life is a constant state of change and evolution, and I am excited for viewers to reconnect with the cast members as they continue to journey and evolve through life.”
The show is produced by Truly Original and Shed Media. From Truly Original, executive producers are Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Julie “Bob” Lombardi, Ronica Wydner, Jamail Shelton, and Katie Sole. For VH1, Tiffany Lea Williams, Angela Aguilera, and Mimi Blanchard serve as executive producers.
