This article has the most up-to-date info on the status of Growing up Hip Hop season 3 as we continuously monitor the news to keep you in the know. WE tv is yet to make a decision on its future. Subscribe to our automatic updates below.
Production info and concept
Growing up Hip Hop is a new American reality television series that premiered on WE tv on January 7, 2016. It is produced by Datari Turner Productions and Entertainment One Television and executive produced by Suzanne Gladstone, Tara Long, Romeo Miller, Master P, Angela Simmons and Datari Turner. The current second season debuted on October 13, 2016.
The documentary series follows the children of hip hop legends as they are growing up and stepping out of their famous parents` shadows. The independence that they strive for has to balance out with the family dynamics. The careers that the children undertake are varied – from music to fashion and acting. The challenges that they face as they tread their own paths are numerous, the chief one being maintaining their identities as the often overprotective parents seek to provide a safety net for them. The romantic and work relationships intertwine within this tight-knit group of hip hop princes and princesses, complicating their lives still further. Angela Simmons, Damon “Boogie” Dash, Romeo Miller, Kristina DeBarge, TJ Mizell and Egypt Criss are all back for season 2, and will be joined by two newbies – Andre King and Brianna Isaacs to spice things up in the current chapter.
Viewer reception and possibilities of renewal
The freshman season of the reality series found an impressive audience of approximately 966,000 viewers per episode in the L+7 Nielsen ratings, and scored high with African American demo groups. VOD numbers also made the series` creators happy, with 1.4 million plays during the season, so the renewal decision must have been a no-brainer. Season 2 premiered with a 0.29 demo rating and 597,000 viewers tuning in. Growing up Hip Hop is probably curious to watch for those into the hip hop culture and lifestyle, and those who follow celebrities` lives and their family issues. Otherwise the celebrity privilege or the celebrity drama spotlighted by the series is hardly relatable or particularly entertaining for rest of the audience. The show holds a rather low 4.8/10 rating on IMDb, but there seems to be enough interest to keep it going, so stay tuned for the news on the next season of Growing Up Hip Hop.
