More than three years since WE’s “Braxton Family Values” ended its 148-episode run — amid allegations by R&B singer Tamar Braxton that producers of the spinoff “Tamar Braxton: Get Ya Life!” had mistreated her — WE brings back the Braxtons in a new series.

The basic-cable network announced it has greenlit an untitled new reality TV show about singers Toni and Tamar Braxton and their kin. The series will address, among other things, the death of the singers’ sister, Traci, in 2022 at age 50 as well as Toni’s upcoming Las Vegas residency with Cedric the Entertainer.
