It’s been one milestone after another for the Bella twins.
And fans of Nikki and Brie are about to witness all those life-changing moments firsthand when Total Bellas returns for Season 2 on E! on Wednesday. Nikki believes the WWE Total Divas reality show spinoff has a different feel to it, with this installment being extremely raw.
“There is even footage off cell phones this season, because you are going to get so much up-close and personal with my engagement, Brie in labor. That is nuts,” she said.
“I think there are a lot of situations that happen in Total Bellas this season that everyone relates to, like my brother and his wife separating for a bit and the reasons why. I think a lot of people are going to sit on the couch, and whether they are with their girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, friend—everyone has got something to relate to here.”
The Bellas are in Cabo filming for Total Divas and Nikki recently filmed with new cast member Alexa Bliss.
Had such an amazing day with this Champ @alexa_bliss_wwe_ Her story is incredible and truly inspiring. I'm SO excited for the world to get to know her more this fall. She models strength and courage. And has conquered so much that I don't think the world even knows! So proud of everything she has accomplished. 💛💋💪🏽
E! Entertainment gives viewers an up-close and personal look at the lives of The Bella Twins when Total Bellas returns for an emotionally-charged new season Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT. Eight, one-hour episodes will once again give viewers an exclusive look inside their lives, including their evolving professional careers, romances and family lives as Nikki Bella and John Cena temporarily relocate to Phoenix to help Brie Bella and Daniel Bryan through their first pregnancy.
Season 2 of Total Bellas kicks off with Nikki and Cena’s in-ring return to WWE, while Brie and Bryan are in need of extra support as they enter the final weeks leading up to the arrival of baby Birdie. This season also follows Nikki on her road to WrestleMania as she prepares for her dream Tag Team Match alongside Cena, all while balancing twin sister duties and being there for Brie as she prepares to become a mother. With Bryan back on the road as WWE’s General Manager of SmackDown LIVE and Cena’s career in Hollywood rising, The Bellas’ bond, though put to the test, grows stronger than ever. The sisters go head-to-head with an exhilarating pregnancy and an emotional road to a long-awaited proposal as they step into the next chapter of their ever-changing lives.
Later this fall, The Bellas will return to the fan-favorite E! series Total Divas, which premieres its seventh season. Following the explosive Season 6 finale, the new season introduces fans to Carmella, Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss, and rounds out the cast with Natalya, Maryse, Lana and Naomi. Total Divas gives viewers a beyond-the-ropes look at how these strong, influential women juggle life on the road with their personal and romantic lives.

Total Bellas returns Wednesday, Sept. 6, at 9 p.m. ET/PT only on E!.
Nikki Bella is back, but the Rack Attack is dead. Long live the Rack Attack. While The Fearless One is finally — finally — cleared to return to the ring, there are still a few kinks to work out before she can actually get back on TV again. Namely, she needs a new signature move, as her doctor has advised her against performing the Rack Attack on account of the pressure it puts on her neck. Nikki has her eyes set on a submission at first, and she rolls around with Bayley, Natalya and MMA fighter Shayna Baszler to try and figure something out. But she hasn’t quite abandoned the idea of a power-based offense yet, and by episode’s end she says she has settled on a new move … but we’ll probably have to wait until next week’s season finale to see it.
When Natalya catches wind of the existence of a “pet agency” — literally, an agent who will monetize one’s pets — she develops a singular focus around building the brand of 2Pawz, her “iconic” cat who already has a sizable following on Instagram. Natalya even goes so far as to invite herself to the Bellas’ business meeting with the agent to get her foot in the door. Things seem to be moving in the right direction when Natalya visits Rosa Mendes and her fiancé Bobby Schubenski to discuss creating merchandise for 2Pawz fledgling following (Bobby designed the T-shirts). But when Renee Young reaches out to Bobby on her own to start creating merch for her and Dean Ambrose’s dog, Blue, Nattie declares it to be a “shady” infringement of her own endeavors. That is, until Brie reminds her that Natalya essentially did the same thing when she encroached on the Bellas’ turf, at which point The Queen of Harts admits that there’s room for more than one pet in the game.
