‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ Renewed at WE tv; ‘Kendra on Top’ Season 5 Premiere Date Announced

We TV has renewed its docuseries “Growing Up Hip Hop” for a second season, and announced a premiere date for the fifth season of “Kendra on Top.”

“Growing Up Hip Hop” follows a new generation of hip-hop moguls following new paths and trying to get out of the shadows of their famous parents. Personalities featured in the show include Angela Simmons, Romeo Miller, Damon “Boogie” Dash, Kristinia DeBarge, TJ Mizell and Egypt Criss.

“We’re excited for another season and the opportunity to continue watching these talented and driven individuals pursue their own definitions of success, emerging from the shadows of their famous parents and the hip-hop empires they were born into,” We TV president Marc Juris said. “This show connected with viewers immediately, because these characters and stories are real and relatable, and we can’t wait to bring the fans more.”

“Growing Up Hip Hop,” which premiered in January, averaged 966,000 viewers in Nielsen’s live-plus-7 ratings in its first season, a strong showing by We TV standards. The series was scheduled as part of We TV’s Thursday night block that has drawn strong ratings with African-American demos.

EntertainmentOne TV’s John Morayniss, Tara Long and Mark Herwick are exec producers of “Growing Up Hip Hop” along with Simmons, Miller, Percy Robert Miller and Datari Turner.

The second season will premiere next year.

“Kendra on Top” will premiere back-to-back episodes on WE tv on April 1.

The new episodes will include a trip to the Sundance Film Festival, a reunion with two of Kendra’s archrivals and a house party where flirting leads to potentially dangerous results.
