Kevin Hart's 'Real Husbands of Hollywood' Renewed for Season 5 at BET (Exclusive)
BET is bringing back Real Husbands of Hollywood.
The Viacom-owned cable network has renewed its scripted, mockumentary-style series for a fifth season with star Kevin Hart signed on to return, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The news comes fresh off the season four return of the comedy on Jan. 5, which generated more than 1 million viewers when factoring in three days of DVR playback. Hart, who also exec produces, also recently took home a People's Choice Award for his role earlier this month for favorite cable TV actor.
The series, which makes light of all things "housewives" and reality TV, counts Stan Lathan, Ralph Farquhar, Jesse Collins, Tim Gibbons, Chris Spencer and Dave Becky among its exec producers. Hart and Chris Spencer created the series, which is produced by HartBeat Productions and JSR Productions for BET Networks. The series also took home a NAACP Image Award for outstanding comedy series in 2014.
Season four guest-stars have included Wayne Brady, Jackie Long, Chris Brown, Nia Long, Nene Leakes, Terry Crews, Paula Abdul and more playing exaggerated versions of themselves. Cynthia Kaye McWilliams co-stars as the husbands' attorney.
