Gene Simmons Family Jewels Announces Season Eight Premiere Date
Those of you who have waited patiently for the next glimpse into the lives of Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed will not have to wait much longer. A&E announced that the eighth season of ‘Gene Simmons Family Jewels’ will premiere on May 28 at 9PM with a special one-hour episode.
Last season ended with Tweed finally making an honest man out of the Kiss bassist after 28 years together. The final two episodes, which dealt with the engagement and the wedding, were the show’s two highest-rated broadcasts ever, averaging 1.8 million viewers. The upcoming season looks to build upon the show’s new success by showing if/how marriage has affected their lives.
One of the main plots will involve Shannon’s desire to adopt a child despite the objections of Gene and their children, Nick and Sophie. The show will also take viewers on their honeymoon in Africa, tackle Gene’s first tour as a married man and watch Nick as he comes to terms with how similar he is to his father.
