In the year of the reality reboot, more familiar faces are returning to American unscripted TV this fall.

Grammy Award-winning artists Tip “T.I.” Harris and Tameka “Tiny” Harris are set to return to Viacom-owned pop culture network VH1 in a follow-up reality series to T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.

T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle will continue to chronicle the life of hip-hop artist T.I., his singer-songwriter wife Tiny and their six children: Zonnique, Messiah, Domani, Deyjah, King, Major and Heiress.

Joining them for the new iteration of the series are such Atlanta celebs as Grammy winner Monica Brown; New York Times best-selling author Antonia “Toya” Wright and her daughter Reginae Carter; actress and singer-songwriter Letoya Luckett; and Zonnique Pullins, singer, actress, model and eldest daughter of Tiny.

The new series will document Tip and Tiny’s strengthened relationship as they work to keep their family together after the past series – T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle (pictured) – culminated in Tiny filing for divorce.

It will also capture everything from complicated marriages and young love, to health scares and past baggage, as the group of loyal friends look to support one another through the complex terrain of juggling family and building their empires.

T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle is produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, a division of Endemol Shine North America.

The series is executive produced by Tip “T.I.” Harris for Grand Hustle, Tameka “Tiny” Harris for Pretty Hustle, and Brian Sher for Category 5.

Executive producers include Christian Sarabia, Vinnie Kaufmann, Jennifer McGrogan, and Donna Edge-Rachell for 51 Minds Entertainment, and Nina L. Diaz, Liz Fine and Vivian Gomez for VH1.

T.I. & Tiny: Friends and Family Hustle premieres Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
