NEW YORK, NY – JANUARY 22, 2024 – VH1’s hit series “Love & Hip Hop: Miami,” returns with its midseason premiere on Monday, January 22 at 8 PM ET/ PT on VH1. Last year was a scorcher, but this year the 305 is on fire! The fifth season of “Love & Hip Hop: Miami,” continues to bring the heat, and there’s no slowing down in the music fast lane of Magic City with a hotbed of romance, temptation, heartbreak, and redemption.

It’s a sunny place for shady people, where everyone is chasing fame… and loyalty is a mirage. After a year of life-altering upheavals, self-transformations, and ongoing challenges, the series’ cast of iconic industry legends and new faces of up-and-comers up the ante – secrets come to light, relationships are tested, and careers hang in the balance. For these stars, there are only two options: rise above the ashes or get burned from the spotlight. 

AMARA LA NEGRA is done playing the victim. After burning most of her bridges with a controversial Instagram Live, a bossed-up Amara is ready to set the record straight and reclaim her narrative. As she reignites her music career, conquers the 305 social scene, and pushes back on the haters who dismissed her as fake and phony, Amara is forced to confront unfinished business with ex-boyfriend SAFAREE – and with ALLAN, the father of her twin daughters. Is Miami ready for the real Amara La Negra? 

Ready to turn the page after a year of exhilarating highs and explosive lows, TRINA explores new love with a new man – who’s got her considering a soft life far removed from her “Baddest B****” persona. But unresolved conflict with “Queen of Kompa” FLORENCE EL LUCHE gets The Diamond Princess out of character, leading to a blowout confrontation that threatens to undermine her personal growth. Can Trina finally find peace amid the noisy drama of the 305? 


TRICK DADDY has his hands full. As he launches his new podcast alongside Miami icon SUPA CINDY, he continues to mentor his nieces – THE HOLLYWOOD TWINS - on their unlikely journey to rap stardom. But Trick is up against even greater odds as he attempts to spearhead an iconic concert celebrating South Florida’s contribution to 50 years of hip-hop. Can the beloved Mayor of the 305 manage the clashing visions of Miami’s musical heavy-hitters, or will outsized egos and logistical chaos force him to pull the plug on his ambitious undertaking? 


As he weathers multiple controversies, SAFAREE doubles down on his intention to rehab his scandalous “stuntman” reputation. But that’s easier said than done, especially when he’s carrying on a secret situationship that could blow up the entire Miami social scene. And when a former flame – Panamanian bombshell ESTELITA QUINTERO - has just pulled into town with some piping hot tea. Will Safaree finally face the music – and take accountability for his messy ways? 


BROOKE VALENTINE has arrived in the 305. With the support of her loyal husband – rapper/songwriter turned relationship expert MARCUS BLACK – the LOVE & HIP HOP HOLLYWOOD fan-favorite is chasing a musical comeback inspired by her recent appearance on Tank’s “Tiny Desk Concert.” In their time away from the spotlight, Brooke and Marcus have matured into a picture-perfect couple – but the change-of-scenery is about to challenge their growth in a major way. As she finds herself immersed in Miami’s scandals and controversies, can Brooke stay focused on her musical mission, or will Ms. Valentine’s famously messy side come out for an encore performance?  


The Norwoods want to prove that they can have it all. RAY J. and PRINCESS are managing a “tri-coastal” existence as they divide their time between L.A. (where the kids go to school), Vegas (where Princess plays poker), and Miami (where Ray is expanding his tech enterprise). 


After successfully navigating the minefield of Miami’s social scene, ZOEY BRINXX still has her eye firmly on the prize: rap superstardom. As she preps her first-ever live production and plots the rollout of her long-in-the-works debut album, the unconventional beauty is determined to prove the naysayers wrong. But Zoey’s about to be in for the fight of her life, as personal challenges, ghosts from her industry past, and non-stop criticism of her music, image, and persona force her to reassess every aspect of her artistic identity. Can Zoey take the heat, stay true to herself, and finally hard-launch her hard-fought career? 


Struggling to get back on track professionally after falling out with TRINA, FLORENCE EL LUCHE faces an even more chaotic personal life as she’s torn between the needs of her outspoken girlfriend CLAUDIA and her duplicitous, soon-to-be-ex-husband MARLON. Meanwhile, fresh beefs with everyone from AMARA LA NEGRA to BOBBY LYTES raise questions about Florence’s motives, and set the stage for a shocking betrayal.  


Still reeling from her break-up with FABO, SHAY JOHNSON struggles with an emotional secret that takes her on a painful journey – and leads her to consider a reconciliation with the father of her daughter. She also makes headlines after an over-the-top confrontation that has everybody talking – and leaves her on the outs with her former circle of friends. Can SHAY heal from her traumas and find her way back into the Miami mix? 


Back outside and ready to play after years of focusing on business and motherhood, ELIZA REIGN is on a mission to build out her social circle. That means burying the hatchet with longtime nemesis MIAMI TIP, and attempting to make friends with SHAY JOHNSON – a move that goes horribly, publicly wrong. Further complicating Eliza’s new era is a secret relationship… that turns into a series of betrayals. Will the former “It Girl” return to the top of Miami’s A-List, or will all the drama and chaos send her back into a self-imposed exile? 

The hit series will also feature more talent than ever, including Gaelle, Joy Young, Emjay Johnson who will make a splash in the mid-season!
