TLC STITCHES UP SEASON TWO, AND SAYS I DO TO MORE “SOMETHING BORROWED, SOMETHING NEW”
The network will commence production on season three end of April
[Los Angeles, CA] — TLC has picked up 18 episodes of the fashionable wedding series, Something Borrowed, Something New, with production slated to begin later this month. Season two of the BrideDay fan favorite series is averaging 1.1M P2+ viewers and ranks #2 in its time period with women (W25-54/18-49) to-date, with the season wrapping up this Friday.
Seamstress extraordinaire Kelly Nishimoto and style guru Sam Saboura have one more marital quarrel left to settle, vying for bride Alexis’ vote to choose between her mom’s re-worked dress, or an extravagant new gown with a $5,000 tag. The San Diego native plans to have an elegant beachfront wedding, opposite her major league fiancé, a player for the Padres, and like the rest of the torn brides, she’ll have to choose between her “something borrowed” or “something new.”
Season three, currently scheduled to premiere in November, promises to deliver more tears shed over old shredded threads. Kicking off with some sibling rivalry, two sisters are fighting over one heirloom gown. Both newly engaged, they will collaborate on the redesign of their mother’s gown, shop together for their prospective “something new,” and will have to make an emotional decision together, culminating in a big double reveal. BrideDay fans need to keep the tissues close as they are introduced to more brides and their heartwarming stories: A vet who recently returned from Afghanistan and suffering from PTSD, a bride with a large Italian family scrambling to secure a dress for a wedding that’s a month away, and of course, clashing mom/daughter opinions, raising the bridal stakes on what’s already the hardest decision a bride-to-be has to make.
The season two finale of TLC’s Something Borrowed, Something New airs Friday, April 18th at 10/9c. The series is produced for TLC by Trium Entertainment.
