Is ‘Braxton’ returning to television anytime sooner?

The Braxton family is gearing up for a television comeback, nearly three years since the conclusion of Braxton Family Values, with Toni Braxton leading the charge alongside sisters Trina, Towanda, and Tamar, and their family matriarch, Evelyn Braxton. The decision to return to the small screen is deeply rooted in honoring the memory of Traci Braxton, their beloved sister who passed away in 2022 from esophageal cancer. “The main reason for wanting to do The Braxtons again is because of Traci,” emphasized Toni in the trailer for the upcoming series set to premiere this August.

In a poignant moment from the trailer, Evelyn Braxton fondly recalls Traci’s final wish for the family to come together and create a new chapter of the Braxton legacy. Towanda, the singer-actress, stresses the importance of sharing Traci’s story authentically in this new series, while Tamar asserts that only those closest to them truly understand their journey, which they are now ready to share with the world. “We’ve been up to a lot of things,” adds Trina, hinting at the diverse paths their lives have taken since their last television venture.

According to People’s exclusive preview of the trailer, the sisters delve into their current endeavors. Toni is busy preparing for her upcoming Love & Laughter residency in Las Vegas, where she will be joined by comedian Cedric the Entertainer. Meanwhile, Towanda is deeply invested in film production and cherishing motherhood with her children, Braxton Montelus Carter and Brooke Carter. Trina has found joy in exploring cooking through her shows on Instagram and YouTube.

The trailer also hints at underlying tensions and secrets within the family dynamic, as Tamar teasingly remarks, “Y’all got so many secrets,” prompting a playful reaction from Towanda to call for a momentary pause. Nevertheless, Evelyn assures that amidst the challenges, there will also be plenty of fun moments in the upcoming series.

The return of The Braxtons serves not only as a platform for personal growth and professional pursuits but also as a heartfelt tribute to Traci Braxton’s enduring legacy within the family and beyond. Toni’s touching tribute to her late sister resonates deeply: “Traci was a bright light, a wonderful daughter, an amazing sister, a loving mother, wife, grandmother, and a respected performer. We will miss her dearly.”

As anticipation builds for their return to television, The Braxtons are set to captivate audiences once again with their unique blend of music, family dynamics, and personal triumphs.
