Details about the upcoming season of the WWE produced reality show, Total Divas, has surfaced online after a press release was issued to the media on Thursday morning (July 26, 2018).
Season 8 of the show is slated to premiere on September 19 on the E! Network and will see a few changes to the cast on this season of the show as Alexa Bliss, Carmella and Maryse will not be returning to the main cast. Although the reasoning behind Bliss and Carmella not returning are not known at this time, Maryse not appearing on the series is due to the fact that she and The Miz just aired the debut episode of their reality show, Miz & Mrs, on the USA Network this week.
However, the good news for fans of the show is the fact that Paige, Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, Natalya, Nia Jax, Lana, and Naomi will be the main cast. Here is the synopsis for the first episode of the new season:
“The season kicks off with the girls getting ready for WrestleMania Week in New Orleans. All eyes are on Nia as she continues to impress in the ring. With her much-anticipated Raw Women’s Championship Match forthcoming, Nia tries to up her game and enlists the help of a veteran Superstar to pick up some new moves.”
Also, it was noted in the release that Nikki’s personal life will be front and center in this season as she hopes to set the record straight between gossip and what she knows as the truth regarding her split from longtime boyfriend John Cena. It should be noted that Nikki also serves as a Co-Executive Producer of Total Divas Season 8.
