Is Mob Wives Really Returning?! A Confirmed Reboot Is In The Works!

Mob Wives is returning! Woohoo!

Mob Wives was an ultra-successful show, that ran for six seasons. From 2011-2016, the ladies of New York City entertained us and made us laugh. Season 1 followed the lives of Carla Facciolo, Drita D’Avanzo, Renee Graziano and Karen Gravano. What did this group of lovely ladies have in common? They are all in some way or another, connected and/or in the life of the mob. Some were relatives of men in the mafia, some were married to mobsters, while others grew up around those mob figures and dated some wiseguys. All of the women are from Brooklyn and Staten Island, while most of them currently reside in Staten Island. During season 2 we saw the additions of Big Ang (Angela Raiola) and Ramona Rizzo.

The creator and executive producer, Jennifer Graziano, recently confirmed to Page Six that Mob Wives is definitely returning. “I get incessant emails and DMs on social media and requests for more. 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.”

Jennifer confirmed that the Mob Wives reboot will remain on the East Coast and will stay in New York, but not solely Staten Island. Mob Wives 2.0 will also include wives from the surrounding areas of Staten Island. There is no word on which cast members/mob wives will for sure be returning but there is a whole lot of speculation!

Lately, Carla Facciolo has been posting throwback photos from the earlier seasons of Mob Wives. Perhaps these are hints? Many fans think so, myself included! She even posted a recent photo of herself with the series creator Jen Graziano, and fellow OG Karen Gravano. They were celebrating the holidays and looking forward to new projects this new year.

Renee Graziano has been posting a lot of hints too. She’s even captioned it, “wait for it” and “it’s a lifestyle” on Instagram. One of the hashtags included “mob wives reboot” and she referenced the OG mob wives. Perhaps only the original cast is returning, and maybe appearances will be made by ladies from the other seasons? She even posted a photo with Natalie Guercio, and it seems that these two have genuinely made up! It’s so refreshing to see. Renee even puts ‘delicious’ as a hashtag. (Remember they had a big fight over that word on the show. Now they are laughing it off which is great!) When Drita posted a throwback clip of her and Big Ang, someone asked what the word was on the new Mob Wives. Drita commented, “Don’t know. Don’t really care. I’m outta there lol.” Let’s hope she returns though! *Wishful thinking*

Recently Drita told the Staten Island Advance, “How could Mob Wives go on without Big Ang?” She also said that it’s so behind her and she doesn’t like that she was depicted as “always angry” on the series. She said she won’t be participating in this reboot, and she is focusing on other endeavors including the Celebrity Shore with Snooki Polizzi and JWoww Farley. Let’s hope she changes her mind and decides to be on the show. It would be nice to have all of the original cast back, especially since Big Ang is sadly gone.

I’m excited that there is a reboot of Mob Wives in the works! I don’t think it will be quite the same though, without Big Ang. I hope they can find a new way to spin it and make it unique since Big Ang sadly passed away and is no longer with us. Hopefully, they could find a way to preserve her memory on the show. We will have to wait and see who is actually going to be in the cast! In addition, to what network it will air on. There is no word yet on if it will be VH1 again or a different network. Stay tuned!

Just like with the mob, once you’re in – you’re not getting out. I am so excited to see it return!

Are you excited that Mob Wives is returning? Do you think the show can go on without Big Ang? Which mob wife is your favorite? Who would you like to see return to the cast?

  • O.T.: Anyone else notice that the story about Danielle Staub’s new haircut was pulled from the site tonight? I posted this in another thread hoping to get a response.

    Can we hear from one of the site’s writers regarding this?

  • I loved Mob Wives! Some of the girls got in their own way though. But I will watch MW 2.0! Team Drita!

  • I wish Drita would come back. Drita and Big Ang were my favs. I met big Ang and Neal in person. It was so special. Something I will always treasure. Come back Drita! I miss you!

  • I do miss Big Ang – R.I.P.

    I actually thought I would be looking forward to news of a return of this crew..nope..I went without this crew for years, and I am not
    curious..I know that Renee – as usual is popping in and out of rehab and Dorit is still warring with her neighbours.

    not interested in – self edited female version of the cryps and the bloods..we already have that ad nauseam in RH.

  • Big Ang ( RIP ??) was my favorite . I don’t know how Mob Wives could be Mob Wives without her, I don’t think it could..
