BET Greenlights Second Seasons for Hit Scripted Series "Tyler Perry's The Oval" and "Tyler Perry's Sistas"

NEW YORK -- Today, BET announced second season pick-ups of original dramas "Tyler Perry's The Oval" and "Tyler Perry's Sistas" from Tyler Perry. The two series hold top spots as the #1 and #2 as new scripted cable series, respectively, for general market P18-49 & P2+*. Production of the original drama is slated to start at Tyler Perry Studios on July 8, with premiere dates for both series forthcoming.

"We are excited to continue our partnership with Tyler Perry and for the renewals of our two Wednesday night programming staples, 'The Oval' and 'Sistas.' BET is committed to investing in quality programming from top industry power players and giving viewers more of the content they love and expect from the brand across our platforms," said Scott Mills, President of BET.

The series renewals land as BET Networks premieres the new half-hour original comedy, "Tyler Perry's Bruh" on BET+. Perry's second original series on the premium streaming service follows four longtime friends as they navigate life and relationships through the strength of their brother-like bond. In a society where relationships between men of color are often misjudged and misrepresented, the series embraces male vulnerability versus hypermasculinity. "Tyler Perry's Bruh" joins Mr. Perry's first series on the service, "Tyler Perry's Ruthless," a spin-off of the hit television series "Tyler Perry's The Oval." Streaming now on BET+, "Tyler Perry's Ruthless" tells the riveting story of a woman named Ruth, who kidnaps her young daughter to join her in the dark underworld of a fanatical religious cult. New episodes of "Tyler Perry's Bruh" and "Tyler Perry's Ruthless" launch every Thursday on BET+.
