Bravo’s Work Out, Oxygen’s The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency both renewed

Two female-centered life- and workplace-focused reality series have been renewed by their respective networks.

Bravo is picking up a second season of Work Out, which aired last summer. There’s no word when the new six episodes will debut.

Jackie Warner will return, of course, but the rest of the cast may be slightly different, as happens with the show’s cousin, Blow Out. “The second season will feature Jackie’s fierce team of trainers, some old and some new,” a Bravo press release says. There is no word whether or not Mimi will return to go batshit crazy again.

Oxygen, however, will give its star plenty of time to go batshit crazy, as it’s expanding The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency to a full hour. Production starts this week, and the season will, Oxygen says, “[include] a special holiday episode titled Christmas With The Dickinsons.”

That special will actually lead off the season, sort of. “The holiday special is set to premiere in December and the rest of the season will kick off with brand-new episodes beginning in January,” according to an Oxygen press release.

Review: Married at First Sight

Marriage At First Sight

In an era of Tinder and Grindr, instant acceptance or dismissal of a potential partner, or instant sex with another body, Married at First Sight offers the thrill of watching strangers deal with the very basics of relationships.

Beyond the headline-grabbing premise, the series has turned out to be a stripped-down, authentic exploration of something very interesting. Read the full review.
