USA Network came to play: The NBCUniversal-owned cable channel has ordered 14 more episodes of “Miz & Mrs,” which follows WWE Superstars and real-life married couple Mike “The Miz” Mizanin and Maryse Mizanin. That’s a significantly larger number than the six half-hours originally ordered.
The reality show is produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions. The announcement was made Tuesday evening on WWE wrestling show “SmackDown Live,” where Miz and Maryse work.
“One word about the renewal: AWESOME!,” said Miz.
“Thanks to all of the WWE fans out there who wanted a window to our crazy lives,” added Maryse. “Be careful what you wish for!”
“Miz & Mrs” gives fans an unfiltered look at the power couple’s lives as they adapt to becoming first-time parents while juggling their fast-paced lifestyle, a cross-country move from Los Angeles to Austin, and the intense demands of their WWE schedule, per USA’s description. From baby first-aid classes and pregnancy photo shoots to big showdowns at WrestleMania, “Miz & Mrs” proves that the outrageous in-ring personalities of The Miz and Maryse are no act.
“Miz & Mrs” was an instant hit for USA, becoming the cable channel’s most-watched reality show debut since 2011’s “Tough Enough.” That one was also a WWE series.
Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam-Chazan and Russell Jay are executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions, and Kevin Dunn serves as executive producer for WWE. The Miz and Maryse are also executive producers.
“Miz & Mrs” airs Tuesday nights after “SmackDown Live.” Tonight’s episode is No. 4 of the original six-episode order.
WWE Superstar Shakeup 2018: 42 Wrestlers You'll Now Only See on 'SmackDown Live' (Photos)
You won’t see any of these guys and girls on ”Raw“ anymore
We all just lived through another WWE Superstar Shakeup, and if your head is still spinning, we're here to help: TheWrap has tracked down where all 96 main roster wrestlers now work.
In our tallies, we only counted regular in-ring wrestlers, so no managers or agents or wives or escorts, etc. -- even if they step between the ropes once or twice a year. Though we listed the obvious and current stables and tag teams together, we added up wrestlers individually.
