W Network’s newest hit original series, Hockey Wives has been green lit for a second season. The docu-series from Bristow Global Media Inc. will continue to explore the wives and girlfriends of some of professional hockey’s top players over the course of a season. Hockey Wives is part of the slate of original series including Property Brothers, the Love It or List It franchise, and Say Yes to the Dress Canada that has made W Network the top-rated network amongst women’s networks in Canada.
“We are thrilled to bring back Hockey Wives for another season on W. The show is our #1 series this year, with fans watching in record numbers, tweeting along with our cast, and joining our Google Hangouts online. In addition, episodes of the series have ranked as the #1 reality series on iTunes Canada after they air,” said John MacDonald, Vice President, Television, Head of Women & Family, Corus Entertainment. “Next season, promises even more excitement with new wives from across the league.”
Following the success of the first season the series will continue to have unmatched access to the off-the-ice lives of the women who are the captains of their families, careers and relationships.
The success of the first season of Hockey Wives has extended beyond the linear airings.
