Jada Pinkett Smith’s popular Facebook Watch series, Red Table Talk, has earned a huge renewal at Facebook. The social media giant has signed a new three-year deal with Pinkett Smith and Westbrook Studios, her company with Will Smith. The renewal will keep the popular Daytime Emmy-nominated talk show exclusively on the platform with new episodes streaming through 2022, featuring Pinkett Smith, her daughter Willow Smith and mother Adrienne Banfield Norris.

Facebook Watch is also looking to turn Red Table Talk into a franchise. They have given the green light to a second series based on the concept called Red Table Talk: The Estefans. The Miami based talk show will feature music superstar Gloria Estefan, her daughter and rising musician Emily Estefan and her niece and Daytime Emmy Award-winning TV host Lili Estefan. Like the mothership program, the offshoot will feature the three women of different generations discussing social and personal issues with family, celebrity guests, and experts. Pinkett Smith has this to say about the renewal and spinoff:

“I’m incredibly proud of Red Table Talk, and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily and Lili. Red Table Talk has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people’s stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform. I’m excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places.”

The renewal and expansion of Red Table Talk comes as Facebook Watch announced they were moving away from scripted programming and leaning more on unscripted series. Red Table Talk is one of their most popular shows and it makes total sense that they would want to build around that. Other unscripted series on the format are Returning the Favor with Mike Rowe and the new Steve Harvey talk show Steve on Watch.
