By Reality TV World staff, 01/08/2004
MTV has announced that the second season of Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica, the network's much talked about reality series which follows the celebrity marriage of former 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey and "pop tart" Jessica Simpson, will premiere on Wednesday, January 21st at 10 PM ET/PT.
The second season of Newlyweds picks up at the Taj Mahal in Atlantic City where Nick and Jessica celebrate their first anniversary, only to find their quiet getaway interrupted by an Oktoberfest celebration. To salvage their anniversary, they head to New York for a romantic carriage ride through Central Park and dinner at Tavern on the Green where Nick has a top tier replica of their wedding cake flown in to Jessica's delight.
The couple also celebrates Nick's 30th birthday complete with Jessica jumping out of a cake wearing nothing but a diamond encrusted watch and lingerie. Additional highlights include Nick's second attempt at redecorating and Jessica splurging on a few luxury items.
Not wanting to be left out of the broadcast network's fun, prior to the season premiere, MTV's MTV.com division will also be launching a new "Tuna or Chicken" online game in which players must identify the mystery objects as chicken or tuna, as well as featuring additional video footage and photos that will not be part of the broadcast episodes.
Newlyweds is executive produced by R. Greg Johnston and produced by Larry Rudolph and Joe Simpson. Lois Curren and Rod Aissa also serve as Executive Producers.
