‘Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka’ season 1 released on March 12, 2020, at 10 pm ET/PT & 9 pm CT on WE tv. It consisted of six episodes, each spanning 60 minutes in duration. The first season wrapped up with its finale on April 16, 2020.
Until now, WE tv has not renewed the show for another season. Since the show has only spanned its inaugural run, a final decision will heavily depend on the viewership numbers.

Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka Season 2 Cast: Who Can be in it?
As the name suggests, ‘Waka & Tammy: What the Flocka’ is centered around married couple Waka Flocka and Tammy Rivera. They are both based in Atlanta. Juaquin James Malphurs, most commonly known by his stage name, Waka Flocka Flame, is an American rapper, who had signed up to 1017 Brick Squad and Warner Bros. Records in 2009. He rose to fame with the release of his singles “O Let’s Do It”, “Hard in da Paint”, and “No Hands”. He launched his first studio album Flockaveli in 2010, followed by his second release called Triple F Life: Friends, Fans & Family in 2012.
In May 2014, Waka married Tammy Rivera Williams, a tv personality, singer, fashion designer and businesswoman. The couple had previously graced television screens by appearing on shows such as VH1’s ‘Love and Hip Hop Atlanta’, WE tv’s ‘Growing up Hip Hop Atlanta’, and ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Hip Hop Edition’.
The couple had their share of troubles during the filming of ‘Love and Hip Hop’ when it was revealed that Waka had cheated on his wife. Later, the pair resolved their differences in ‘Marriage Boot Camp’ and currently, their relationship appears to be more stable. Season 2, as and when it happens, will see the stars making their returns.
What Can Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka Season 2 be About?
WE tv describes the gist of the show in its official synopsis: “Waka and Tammy find themselves in their new home in Atlanta, where they are navigating all the challenges of married life. From home renovation, juggling Tammy’s bustling music career, parenting their teenage daughter Charlie, and meddling in-laws, keeping their marriage strong takes work.”
‘Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka’ gives an unfiltered look into the issues faced by the hip hop stars as they navigate married life. As Tammy says in one of the episodes: “Most people get married, they go on their honeymoon, they come home to their new life, for us, it’s like a war zone. We love each other but we definitely argue a lot.”
The husband-wife duo also gets into multiple disagreements regarding their parenting styles. In the words of Waka himself in one scene: “Me and my wife’s parenting style is total opposites.” We also meet the couple’s teenage daughter, Charlie, who in one episode, reaches home donning a new hairstyle that Tammy does not approve of. The latter then even resorts to wrestling Charlie on the ground and chopping off both her braids! Waka states: “Some days I hate my wife. Some days I love her. She’s worth fighting for.”
Season 1 ends with the couple coping up with the COVID-19 crisis. ‘Waka & Tammy: What The Flocka’ season 2 is expected to embrace the same trope and continue following the stars as they tackle other, new issues in their marital journey.
