‘Wife Swap’ Renewed for Season 2 at Paramount Network

Reality show will return for 20 additional episodes

Paramount Network picked up a second season of “Wife Swap,” the network announced on Wednesday.

The series, a reboot of the 2004 original which sees two families from different walks of life switch spouses for two weeks, will return for 20 additional episodes.

“‘Wife Swap’ is an iconic international hit that we knew would resonate with our Paramount Network audience,” Paramount Network development boss Keith Cox said in a statement. “Season 1 told entertaining and compelling stories of great families that were dramatic and at times pleasantly comedic. We’ll explore even more diverse families and their fascinating stories for Season 2.”

Hailing from Banijay Studios North America, “Wife Swap” is executive produced by David Goldberg, Ted Iredell, Perry Dance and John Platt.

The first season averaged a 0.35 rating among adults 18-49 with an average of 491,000 total viewers per episode.

“Wife Swap” first ran on ABC between 2004 and 2010, and was briefly revived in 2013. A celebrity edition ran for four seasons, going off the air in 2015.
