Bravo’s ‘The Real Housewives of New York City‘ has been one of our favorites when it comes to the long list of appetizing reality TV shows that we’re all fond of. As drama persists and tensions rise, the high-class womenfolk of New York City navigate life within the same social circle that sometimes screams “unity” while at other times, cracks in the face of adversity. Created by Scott Dunlop, the show initially premiered on March 4, 2008.
Some viewers find the series quite entertaining and have enjoyed watching how the cast members have evolved over the years. Several others even admitted that although the show lacks novelty, it is the perfect guilty pleasure. However, the series has been strongly criticized for its lack of diversity in the cast line-up. Despite everything, fans have been pining for more episodes, which brings us to the burning question: will ‘RHONY’ return for season 14? Well, here is all that we know about it!
The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 Release Date
‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ season 13 released on May 4, 2021, on Bravo and ended on August 31, 2021. The season has 17 episodes, and every episode has a runtime of 41–43 minutes.
As far as season 14 is concerned, we have news that might shock you! The future of the long-running show is looking a little ambiguous, given that a formal announcement confirming a new season has not yet been made. The ratings for the finale of season 13 were severely low, which has now alarmed the producers about the show’s current prospects. Reports also suggested that the reunion special episodes won’t be filmed until September 2021, and the production for a new season might not start until early 2022.
The filming for season 13 concluded on a positive note, but once the season aired, Eboni K. Williams lashed out at her fellow castmates, particularly Ramona and Luann. The creators admitted that they are more in tune with how fans respond to the cast. So, based on the feedback received, the production company Shed Media and the network Bravo would be making decisions regarding the show’s future. Moreover, many fans have reportedly been disappointed over the “unnecessary” addressal of social issues over the course of the thirteenth season that has birthed huge fights between its cast members.
Despite Eboni claiming that the producers in charge of the final cut compromised her image in front of audiences worldwide, it looks like it would be a while before the network gets past the failure of the current season and deliver the next one. So, it is certain that we might not get another season for a long time. Hence, we expect ‘The Real Housewives of New York City’ season 14 to air sometime in late 2022.
The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 Cast: Who can be in it?
Season 13 of the show documents the lives of Luann de Lesseps, Ramona Singer, Sonja Morgan, Leah McSweeney, and Eboni K. Williams. As per a few sources, casting decisions will not be made until the reunion episodes for season 13 air on television. As far as the returning members are concerned, Eboni said, “Until there’s a renewal contract to consider, I just can’t really think about that too much. I’ve got a lot of other stuff on my plate. But, of course, when and if that offer to do this again comes, I will give it very serious consideration.”
It is speculated that radio host Carolina Bermudez might join the cast in the potential season 14. The rest of the members are expected to make a smooth comeback. However, we have heard that Luann, Ramona, and Sonja might take up “friend” roles in the fourteenth season, that is, if the show is recommissioned.
What can The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 be About?
The thirteenth season caused a stir among the audiences because of “race talk” and other sensitive conversations initiated by the elite Housewives of New York City. The fight between Ramona and Eboni gained a lot of traction and negative publicity. If the series is renewed for another season, we might see them dive into this matter again once again.
Ramona, who has been affected by Eboni’s harsh behavior, is expected to set the record straight with her newfound enemy. In potential season 14, we might find Luann preparing for her cabaret show. On the other hand, Leah is expected to have released her book, and Sonja could be creating her own comedy gig.
