WE TV announced that the docu-series “Mary Mary” will be returning for its sixth and final season this September.
“Mary Mary” chronicled the lives of Erica and Tina Campbell, sisters and the member of the popular gospel music group, Mary Mary. The reality series was one of WE TV’s most popular series and was nominated earlier this year for a NAACP Image Awad for Outstanding Reality Program/Reality Competition Series.
“It’s been a privilege to chronicle the lives of gospel superstars Erica and Tina Campbell, better known as Mary Mary – who are truly rocks stars who rock everything they do, from family life to their wildly successful music careers,” said Lauren Gellert, executive vice president, development & programming for WE TV. “’Mary Mary’ is a big part of why WE tv is a #1 cable network for African-American adults and women on Thursday nights and we are proud to have been the television home to these inspirational women for six amazing seasons.”
Both sisters admit that it’s been a great experience for them as well. “We have been so proud to share our music and our lives with WE tv viewers and fans for the past five seasons,” said Erica Campbell of “Mary Mary.” “We are grateful to our fans for going with us on this journey, from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows, we can’t wait to return this fall to complete this part of our story.”
Tina Campbell of “Mary Mary had this to say: “I’m so grateful to have shared the last several years of my life, personally and professionally, with all of the supporters of the viewers of our reality show. We’ve written and recorded songs together, we’ve released albums together, we’ve been pregnant together, we’ve had babies on the show, we’ve had the worst of times in our families and have had the best of times with our family. You’ve watched our children grow up. Heck, you’ve watched Erica and I and the rest of our family grow up over these years. We’ve established an identity together and separately and you all have been with us for the entire ride. I can’t possibly find the words to truly express my gratitude for this experience so I’ll just say thank you, thank you, thank you, to everyone who made it happen and to everyone who watched it happen. It’s been great.”
The final season of “Mary Mary” will return on September 28th at 9 pm EST.
