Erica and Tina Campbell of the three-time Grammy award-winning gospel duo Mary Mary return for the second season of their WE tv series “Mary Mary,” which premieres at a special time at 9 p.m. Dec. 6.

New episodes of “Mary Mary” will begin airing after the premiere in the show’s regular time period at 8 p.m. Thursdays starting Dec. 13.

More details on the series and the Singing Spotlight online competition, provided in a news release, are as follows:

This season, the sisters are experiencing the busiest time of their careers. They are promoting their new album “Go Get It,” and capping their tour dates by receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Essence Music Festival.

The sisters have also enlisted Laurieann Gibson as creative director to help bring their live show to the next level!

And while touring keeps them busy on the road, Erica and Tina are even busier being moms, sisters and wives who strive to keep happy homes.

Even with her fifth child on the way, Tina is determined to fulfill all her work obligations until she gives birth.

With Tina at home with her newborn, Erica strikes out solo as a judge and headline performer at Verizon’s “How Sweet The Sound” concert.

When the pressures of balancing work and home life become insurmountable, will one sister have to make a difficult decision that jeopardizes the future of Mary Mary?

In the premiere episode, Erica <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/erica-campbell>  and Tina <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/tina-campbell>  are in for a marathon: back-to-back concerts and appearances to promote “Go Get It,” booked by their headstrong manager Mitchell Solarek <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/mitchell-solarek> .

Excited about the influx of opportunities, Erica rises to the challenge of nonstop touring and occasionally brings along hubby Warryn <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/warryn-campbell>  and newborn Zaya for the ride. On the other hand, Teddy <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/teddy-campbell>  is concerned about his wife Tina—who’s in her third trimester—as she puts more strain on her pregnancy with constant touring.

Behind the scenes, trouble continues between sister/celebrity stylist Goo Goo <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/googoo>  and Mitchell when a last minute wardrobe malfunction threatens an important performance on a popular gospel show.

Adding to Goo Goo’s stress, she’s been tasked with planning her sister’s, Alana <http://www.wetv.com/shows/mary-mary/cast/alana-atkins> , wedding all while trying to keep things afloat with long-distance boyfriend Justin.
