"Eric and I are very excited to be back for a third season of our show," Jessie said in a statement. "We are all about family, fun and sharing the love. I know our fans are going to enjoy watching this new chapter of our lives."

Eric & Jessie initially premiered as Eric & Jessie: Game On in September 2013. Jessie said in an interview with Rolling Stone published in July that the show helped her connect with female fans.

"I had a real hard time with female fans," the star confessed. "Girls didn't like me, and that killed me because I've always wanted to be a role model for young girls."

"I knew doing this show that if girls got to know me, it would really help them get to know my personality and maybe they would want to be a fan. So it did help, hugely," she said. "That's why I'm sitting here."

Eric & Jessie Season 3 will premiere Sept. 6.
