On June 11, Style Networks's highest rated series Tia & Tamera (that's right, highest rated) will return for its second season at 8/7c.

And immediately following the season 2 premiere of Tia & Tamera, Style network will debut its new reality TV show titled Chicagolicious, at 9/8c. It ordered 10 episodes of the series, which follows AJ Johnson, owner of AJ’s of Chicago (the pricey salon where Sergio gets his hair cut), and whose client list includes many a celebrity, like Jennifer Hudson, Angela Bassett and Iman.

With his staff of hair stylists and makeup artists, AJ looks to expand his business nationally by servicing more elite clientele and solidifying his place in Chicago society. 

Tia & Tamera of course follows the twin Mowry sisters as each adjusts to new lives - Tia, a working new mom who's in the biz, and Tamera, a newlywed who's also in the biz. The series premiere of the show last year was Style Network's higest-rated ever with more than 750,000 viewers. And then episode 2 out-performed episode 1, and the rest is history. A season 2 renewal was a no-brainer for the network.

Recall most recently that it was announced that Tia would not be returning for the 6th season of BET's hit series The Game; I'm sure she'll be just fine, financially anyway.

Watch previews of both shows below, ahead of their June 11 premieres:
