LOS ANGELES — The hit series Total Divas is back on a whole new night with new and returning fan-favorite WWE Superstars ready to face their fears, rise to new challenges and live their lives on their own terms as the new season premieres on E! Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 10 ET/7 PT.
WWE Superstar, Olympic Medalist and UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey joins Natalya, Naomi and Nia Jax for the new season, which also includes returning cast member Carmella and newcomer Sonya Deville. Nikki Bella and Brie Bella will make guest appearances in the series as well.
Total Divas kicks off showcasing another side of Rousey, as she gushes about her MMA fighter husband Travis Browne while enjoying her time in WWE and working on her ranch, Browsey Acres.
Natalya, mourning the death of her beloved father Jim “The Anvil” Neidhart, is taking things one day at a time and throwing herself into work. Her sights are set on winning the Women’s Royal Rumble Match and a chance to become the Raw Women’s Champion. Nia is feeling confident after her victorious showing in the Battle Royal at WWE’s first-ever all women’s pay-per-view event, WWE Evolution. However, there is trouble in paradise when she learns who her next opponent will be.
Sonya is happy to be living out and proud and is ready for a serious relationship and respect in the ring. While settling into her new home in Ft. Lauderdale, an opportunity to move to Tampa presents itself and shakes up her entire world.
After her recent breakup, Carmella is focused on what’s important for her and her career. She is faced with backlash while trying to balance friendships and a new romantic relationship, putting both to the ultimate test. Naomi is excited to get down to business during the Women’s Royal Rumble Match in an effort to be the last woman standing. Having her close friends Sonya and Carmella on the road with her makes for many fun adventures along the way.
Nikki and Brie connect with the ladies, whether it’s at their Birdiebee fashion show or on the road. Although the entrepreneurial sisters are busy with their businesses and filming Total Bellas, the passion they share for WWE hasn’t waned.
Total Divas is produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions. Gil Goldschein, Russell Jay and Farnaz Farjam Chazan are Executive Producers for Bunim/Murray Productions.
