What About Married to Medicine Season 2?

Married To Medicine - Season 1

The popular, Atlanta-based series Married to Medicine wrapped season 1 last May. So far, there’s been no official word from Bravo about the prospects of a second season. With 4 months already having passed since the reunion aired, we decided it was about time to do a little digging and see what we could find out about the future for M2M.

Typically, Bravo announces that they’ve greenlit a second season immediately after season 1 wraps (ex: Below Deck). This makes sense because it takes advantage of all the hype surrounding the end of a popular season and gives viewers something to look forward to. Now, Married to Medicine was a pretty popular series. In fact, the series premiere garnered more viewers than ANY non-spinoff show in Bravo’s illustrious history. This could be due, in part, to the overall success the network is currently enjoying but still, it seems like something the execs would want to do again, right?  Hmm…not sure what the delayed announcement is about if, in fact, we can expect a second season. But, signs still point to yes at this point and here’s why:

The show’s creator, star, co-producer and “queen bee” Mariah Huq sure seems to think it’s happening. Upon wrapping season 1, she had this to say:

“Season two is very likely. [Featuring] the same six ladies [however] is very very unlikely. #catch”

Sounds like she’s planning on some re-casting. She also had this to say on her Bravo blog:

“Every circle starts at a specific point and ends at the same place. It was fitting that the last gathering took place at my home since that is where this journey begun. While some may not like it, best believe that I’m not going anywhere! And I’m not going to allow two bad apples to ruin the whole bunch. I’d much prefer to throw out the rotten ones and go pick new, ripe, shiny apples with A LOT more nutrients and A LOT less defects!”

Also, we hear from Access Atlanta that Season 2 production was set to begin earlier this month, the first week of September.

Despite all of the above clues, there has also been some pushback from the medical community to pressure Bravo into canceling the series. Specifically, Howard University medical students started a petition which states:

“Black female physicians only compose 1% of the American workforce of physicians. Due to our small numbers, the depiction of Black female doctors in media, on any scale, highly affects the public’s view on the character of all future and current African American female doctors. Bravo’s “Married to Medicine” not only exploits the 6 lives of its Black female cast members, but, through its advertisements and commercials, heavily associates Black females in medicine with materialism, “cat fights”, and unprofessionalism.

“In a time when doctors are being held to very high standards by the public and each other, it is unfathomable for such a depiction of medicine and black women to be broadcast on tv where it will be inevitably available for years to come, on the internet and through other media outlets.

“Additionally, as residency positions are becoming increasingly more competitive (particularly for Black women) and contingent upon social behavior of graduating medical students, this depiction will only hinder black female physicians from attaining competitive residencies. Hence, for the sake of integrity and character of black female physicians, we must ask that Bravo immediately remove and cancel “Married to Medicine” from its channel, website, and any other media.”

Hmmm. With that kind of pressure, do you think Bravo will move forward with Married to Medicine? Or, do you think the clues we’ve uncovered mean we can still expect a second season?

  • morgan myles

    Pls no season 2 all of them especially quad and lakiesha remind me of school kids but they are grown women. Not a good look. They beat the dead horse last season so repetitive. Smh.

  • MsFutureDDS

    A season 2 would be interesting to see but not at the expense of making that 1% of African American women look bad. Then I would not support a season 2 Period.

  • pcofwork

    I liked the show, it just goes to show you, that when you put any person in front of the camera on a TV show, eventually they all start jockeying for the best position.

  • MP

    seeing as though the two Black female doctors were not participants in the catfights & foolery & carried themselves well, IMO, I don’t get why the soon-to-be Black female doctors were so against the show…seems as the petition was baseless and apparently done before watching the show…it was done before the show even aired if I’m not mistaken

  • Bernadette Hindman

    Season 2 please!!!

  • Bernadette Hindman

    Season 2 please

  • YesToSeason2

    Look ppl, this is what reality TV is all about. If you take such offense to how they portrayed black women in M2M, then all Italian Americans should be APPALLED at how they are portrayed in RHONJ, & so should all Jewish & Middle Eastern folk (Princesses of Long Island & Shahs), & Cuban Americans (RHOM), & Rednecks (Honey Boo Boo & Duck Dynasty). This list goes on! Reality TV is NOT based on reality, & the ppl who believe that are the reason reality TV is so successful. Bottom line, it gave us everything we look for in reality TV; drama, drama, drama. Watch Dr. Phil or OWN if you’re looking for melodramatic structured realness.

    Season 2 is a go in my book!

    • EnjoyingLife

      I hope their is a season 2. I thought it was much better than a lot of the reality shows that are own today. And this hasnt stopped me from attending my black obgyn.

  • LC

    Ok people, why is it ok for white people and other nationalities to get on reality TV & make a fool of themselves & make millions doing it and no one has a problem with it? But, as soon as a black reality show comes alone, black people always have a problem with it & protest to remove & cancel the show. If their were no black reality shows on tv, black people will have something to say about that! Be quiet and let them make their money just like the rest of the reality stars! We as black people are our own worse enemy. “We need to learn how to support each other and stop stabbing each other in the back!”

    P.S. Andy, don’t listen to these negative people. Married to Medicine is a very good reality show. Please bring it back for a second season and make it more “Juicy” & “Messy!”

    I completely agree with Howard University and this is why, Atlanta is being inundated with these reality shows and as you can see from some of these ridiculous shows that are being filmed in Atlanta they are causing a severe backlash just like Big Rich Atlanta and the fake Country Club that they were saying was in Buckheadand further back lash that want of one of the cast mates Father was one of the biggest abortion doctors in United States and countless pro- life people were horrified to see the Mother and the daughter living in mansions and belonging to this fake Country Club which is called “Brookfield Country Club” and is located in Roswell not Buckhead. They went on to say are they are living these lavish lifestyles from blood money. Style network which was bought out by Esquire network refused to renew Big Rich Atlanta because of the horrendous backlash. As a former resident of Atlanta for 12 years I can tell that the Atlanta area which none of these women live in, let’s get real here, they all live in Alpharetta, Duluth, or Roswell. The country club communities all are in wealthier suburbs of Atlanta and the way this show, Married to Medicine, came as the most immature bunch of women with husbands that were ruining the reputation that Atlanta has for some of the top hospitals and top doctors and to see the show about being “queen bee” and having to a vocabulary lesson of ” shady boots and catch fire”. This is why I can completely understand Howard University’s position on canceling this show and other Atlanta’s reality shows that are destroying the beauty of residing in Georgia. My wish is to restore the reputation of Atlanta and the suburbs of Atlanta to what it once was which is up standing hard working people with amazing medical hospitals and doctors and not this reality show city which it has become.

    I just want to see season 2 🙂

  • Texan777

    I agree with the petitioners, the program will really impact the Medical community in a negative manner, the Doctors that are married to these gold diggers are in serious trouble, if they have not already divorced these women they should. Its really sad that their exploits on Television will forever be spoken of at the hospitals where they work, and you have got to be extremely foolish to think that it will not AFFECT their careers

  • Charlie J

    Give it a rest people kill me trying to make it seem like your profession or cause you got money youdon’t have enemies or flaws an everything is perfect gtfoh the show should return your ignorant people don’t protest rhoa or any of the other reality shows so stfu

    I agree with the students at Howard University, future African American Physicians and practicing African American Physicians. The OB-GYN who tried to bring some semblance of decorum to the show. One example (i.e. the lemon squeeze). Well, we know how that turned out. Total bust to the point where the Dr. became so frustrated she left. I watched the first season, but I was extremely embarrassed. Therefore, I I am asking that Bravo does not bring Married to Medicine back for a second season. If they do, my friends and I certainly will not watch.
