No one understands a woman like another woman! OWN’s women-centric series ‘Girlfriends Check In’ features several female celebrities who engage in a virtual chat with their close friends and talk about relationships, self-care, and everything else under the sun, straight from the comfort of their homes. The series promises to celebrate sisterhood, make the viewers feel empowered, and also spread the message that together we shall heal from the ongoing health crisis.
It is no secret that OWN is the #1 cable network on Saturday nights for African-American viewers, especially women. And by dropping the virtual series, the network is making an interesting addition to its unscripted programming slate that comprises hits like ‘Love & Marriage: Huntsville,’ ‘Ready to Love,’ and ‘Black Love.’ In case you are wondering: When will ‘Girlfriends Check In’ season 1 release, and what is it about? We have got you covered. Read on.

What is Girlfriends Check In About? Who is in it?
The relatability factor in female friendships enables women to be more vocal about their thoughts and opinions in general. Let’s be honest, while struggling to balance life and work during quarantine, many of us have gotten out of touch with our inner self. And through the series, our favorite celebrities supply endless entertainment or should I say, wom-entertainment, by engaging in virtual chat room sessions to check up on each other.
In each episode, the female celebrities spill the unfiltered tea on their families, love life, personal struggles, and achievements. They also share new recipes and their daily routine, so that and the audience can relate and feel connected. The virtual series features actor, producer and director Meagan Good, voice actor and singer La’Myia Good Bellinger, singer and social media personality B. Simone, ‘The Gifted’ and ‘Empire’ actor Grace Byers, ‘The Real’ host and stand-up comedienne Loni Love, celebrity hairstylist Robbi Rogers, ‘Basketball Wives’ fame Tami Roman, and ‘Boston Common’ and ‘The Tom Show’ star Tasha Smith, among several others.
