Reboot of Mob Wives is in the works

“Mob Wives” is returning to the small screen.
“I get incessant emails and DMs on social media and requests for more,” the show’s creator Jennifer Graziano told Page Six on Friday. “A lot of the fans love the original cast members and love ‘Mob Wives’ as a whole, and I think enough time has passed [since the death of show fixture Angela ‘Big Ang’ Raiola] and the demand is there [for a reboot].”
“It’s still gonna be focused on the East Coast,” the show’s star Renee Graziano‘s sister confirmed. “It’ll be in New York and the surrounding areas, not necessarily Staten Island. I’m always open to expanding to any city that makes sense with a good cast.”
Jennifer could not confirm if the show would return to its home on VH1 or who from the old cast would be returning.
The show premiered in 2011 and ended in 2016 after Big Ang’s death. Castmates Brittany Fogarty and Karen Gravano were banned from her funeral while Drita D’Avanzo and Carla Facciolo paid their respects.
Ramona Rizzo, Alicia DiMichele, Natalie Guercio and Marissa Jade also made appearances on the show.
A rep for VH1 did not immediately return our request for comment.
