We tv has announced a 10-episode extension for Season 2 of Love After Lockup, raising the number of episodes to 24. The additional episodes, introducing new couples making the transition to “love on the outside” will air this spring.
The network cited audience growth as the reason behind the expanded season. According to We tv, Love After Lockup was the fastest-growing new cable reality series for 2018 and has continued the trajectory in season two. Seven episodes into the second season, the show delivered a series high of more than 1.3 million total viewers in Live+3, double the season premiere viewership and a series high 762,000 adults 25-54, up 88% percent from the season premiere.
“We could not be more thrilled with the organic growth that Love After Lockup continues to deliver, week after week, as more viewers find and connect with the real stories in the show,” said Marc Juris, WE tv president. “We knew we had a compelling concept with this series, and to see viewers respond like this is beyond gratifying.”
The series follows relationships in which one half of the couple is in, or has been in, prison. Love After Lockup is produced by Sharp Entertainment, with Matt Sharp and Dan Adler as exec producers. Lauren P. Gellert, Kate Farrell and David Stefanou are Executive Producers for WE tv.
