According to Bravo's official Press Release, the show will be a a four-part special called “Xscape: Still Kickin’ It” (working ttitle), chronicling the much-anticipated reunion of one of the most successful, chart topping, female R&B groups of all time. Coming this fall, the series will follow Xscape’s former members Kandi Burruss of Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and sisters LaTocha and Tamika Scott.

Xscape exploded onto the music scene in the 90’s and emerged as one of the most prolific girl groups of all time. The women had three consecutive Platinum albums, with six of their top-ten songs hitting the Billboard 100. However, fans were shocked at the group’s seemingly sudden split and have been persistently calling for a reunion ever since. With the upcoming 25-year-anniversary of Xscape’s first album release, the women have decided to reunite for this special milestone and most importantly as an ode to their loyal fans.

“We are so excited to team up with Bravo and give our fans an up-close-and-personal look into our lives as we get ready for Essence Fest!” says Xscape. “This process has been a whirlwind with so many ups and downs, but we are loving every minute of being back together, and cannot wait to share the love, laughs, and craziness with you all!”

Each episode will document the group as they attempt to heal past wounds and reconcile after nearly two decades apart, all in an effort to make beautiful music together culminating at Essence’s 2017 Festival.

“Xscape: Still Kickin’ It” (wt) is produced for Bravo by Truly Original and Monami Entertainment. Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson and Thomas Jaeger (Truly Original) and Mona Scott-Young and Stephanie Gayle (Monami Productions) serve as Executive Producers. Kandi Burruss, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle and LaTocha and Tamika Scott also serve as Executive Producers.

Production sources reveal to TMZ that the show premieres in November when RHOA returns so it can piggyback off the show on Bravo.

This will be the fourth Bravo spin-off show that Burruss is featured on. Back in 2012, Kandi gave her a special episode of The Kandi Factory, which in 2013 became a full-on series. The show only lasted one season.

In 2014, Burruss and her then fiance Todd Tucker got a five-episode wedding series titled "The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi's Wedding." In 2015, Kandi and her family got their own three episode special titled "Kandi's Ski Trip."
