Families of the Mafia is an American reality television series that premiered on MTV on April 9, 2020 in the United States. The show is a retooling of the short lived Made in Staten Island. Its predecessor focused on the lives of seven young adults living in Staten Island trying to avoid the influence of local organized crime. In March 2020, fourteen months after its sudden cancellation, MTV announced they had continued to work with five of the seven young adults and the producers. The focus shifted on the lives of the families, all connected in some way to not only one another, but the mafia and other mobs.[1]

A second season premiered on July 15, 2021.[2]
