Zap2It reports that MTV is bringing back "Sorority Life" for a third season and "Fraternity Life" for a second season. Both new seasons have already been shooting and will premiere in September 2003. The new edition of "Sorority Life" will follow the girls of the Zeta Sigma Phi pledge class at the University of Southern California. "Fraternity Life" will focus on the University of California at Santa Cruz chapter of Delta Omega Chi.
"Last season, 'Sorority Life' and 'Fraternity Life' were run-away successes," says John Miller, executive vice president, Series Development & Animation, MTV. "We're excited to bring both shows to the West Coast and are looking forward to providing our viewers with a new look into the lives of women and men who strive toward diversity and breaking stereotypes within their Greek organizations."
The first installment of "Sorority Life" debuted on June 24, 2002 and focused on the ladies of Sigma Alpha Epsilon Pi at UC Davis. This season, both shows have focused on pledges to the Greek system at the University at Buffalo. As we reported previously, the boys of "Fraternity Life" ran into trouble after an incident trespassing at the Buffalo Zoo after hours, but ratings for both shows remained high.
