It looks like Bravo isn’t scared of a little controversy. The network gave word today that “Married to Medicine” will, indeed, be returning for Season 2!
Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 6 at 9pm ET/PT!
Season 1 of M2M averaged 1.9 million total viewers per episode, making it the network’s highest-rated non-franchise/non-spinoff freshman series since “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” 10 years prior. So, Season 2 was a no-brainer, right? Sure, except for some pretty heated push-back regarding how the show portrayed African American women in the medical community. But, as I said, it looks like Bravo isn’t going to be told what to do by anyone except the viewers.
Season 2 brings a few casting changes. Kari Wells is out and Lisa Nicole Cloud and Dr. Heavenly Kimes are in.
We’ll also be seeing some shifting of allegiances this time around. Here’s what Bravo has to say about Season 2:
Season two of “Married to Medicine” premieres on Sunday, April 6 at 9p.m. ET/PT with more laughter, drama, and, of course, “shade.” Returning this season are Toya Bush-Harris, Mariah Huq, Dr. Jacqueline Walters, Quad Webb-Lunceford, Dr. Simone Whitmore, along with newcomers, entrepreneur Lisa Nicole Cloud and Dr. Heavenly Kimes. Mariah and Quad’s once inseparable friendship is barely hanging onto life support. Mariah, the self-proclaimed “Queen Bee,” has demanded credit for making Quad “relevant” in the exclusive circle of Atlanta medicine, while Quad feels Mariah has a bad case of jealousy. While Toya’s search for her dream home continues, her friendship with long-time friend Simone comes to a surprising halt. As for the doctors, life isn’t all roses. Dr. Simone realizes that her busy career and recent financial blunder has taken a toll on her marriage. Meanwhile, Dr. Jackie, a two-time survivor of breast cancer, is ready to finally experience motherhood, either through adoption or by using a surrogate with her biggest obstacle being her husband. Add to the mix the larger-than-life Dr. Heavenly Kimes, who is both a dentist and married to a doctor, and Lisa Nicole, a successful entrepreneur and fashion designer, and the result is a recipe for sass, class, and one of the most explosive – and brutally honest – confrontations yet.
