The Real Housewives Ultimate Girls Trip, season 2
The franchise’s first season all-star edition featured many original Housewives hitting the sun and sand in Turks and Caicos. When the format returns, it’s with a whole new cast and premise: the ex-Housewives. Yup, for the first time since their departure from their original series, these unforgettable women will get together for the ultimate vacation at Dorinda Medley’s Bluestone Manor. There, the likes of Jill Zarin (RHONY), Phaedra Parks and Eva Marchille (RHOA), Vicki Gunvalson and Tamra Judge (RHOC) and Brandi Glanville and Taylor Armstrong (RHOBH) will join her for a trip down memory lane. Considering how much drama each one of these ladies brought to their own seasons of the show, we can’t wait to see what happens when the casting gods put them all together.
Southern Charm, season 8
Charmers Leva Bonaparte, Craig Conover, Kathryn Dennis, Austen Kroll, Madison LeCroy and Shep Rose are back and ready to charm the socks off of viewers in Season 8. Once again there is plenty to look forward to when we return to the Charleston social scene, and that includes newcomers Olivia Flowers, Marcie Hobbs, and Chleb Ravenell. Familiar faces Venita Aspen, Taylor Ann Green and Naomie Olindo, meanwhile, are also returning this year. This season there will be plenty of new relationships to follow in addition to some of the messy ones we’ve already gotten to know. Add in businesses, friendships, and parenthood to contend with, and this season may be one of the hottest ones yet.
The Real Housewives of Dubai, season 1
Dubai may be in the middle of the desert, but there’s plenty of action that goes down in this highly exclusive social scene. The 11th city in the Housewives franchise (and the first outside of North America) hits the airwaves this summer like a glass of refreshing, ice-cold water. This diverse and impressive group of female business owners and entrepreneurs can hold their own in a billionaire’s playground, all while raising their families and looking glamourous. Among the first season cast are Nina Ali, a woman born in Lebanon and raised in Texas; Chanel Ayan, Dubai’s first supermodel and a glamorous socialite; Caroline Brooks, a first-generation American and Afro-Latina who has made a name for herself in the world of real estate; Dr. Sara Al Madani, a public speaker who was born and raised in the UAE; Lesa Milan, a Jamaican-born fashion designer and former Miss Jamaica winner who also has her own luxe maternity line; and Caroline Stanbury, a stylist some may recognize from the former series, Ladies of London.
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, season 12
After 12 seasons on-air, the 90210 ladies still know how to bring the drama. So far this season we’ve seen the ladies deal with some pretty big issues, from Dorit Kemsley’s terrifying robbery at gunpoint to Lisa Rinna having to say goodbye to her mom. Along the way we’ve seen Crystal Kung Minkoff find her voice among her new group of friends, learned more about the seemingly endless riches that new diamond-holder Diana Jenkins has, and watched Sutton Stracke and Erika Jayne continue to go at it. Heading into the summer months we’re excited to build on those beginnings, especially as we learn more about Rinna’s feud with Kathy Hilton and get to know friend of the Housewives, Sheree Zampino a bit better.
The Real Housewives of Atlanta, season 14
The 14th season of this peachy Housewives iteration has been a whirlwind of storylines, from makeups and breakups to extravagant toddler birthday parties, new businesses and even Broadway. So far this season we’ve had a chance to see how Shereé Whitfield is navigating her Atlanta return now that Chateau Shereé is complete, not to mention how Kenya Moore is dealing with her busy year including a run on Dancing With the Stars and a gig on the initial Ultimate Girls Trip. Add in lots of drama between new official housewife Marlo Hampton and Kandi Burruss, not to mention a change of scenery thanks to the newest cast member, Sanya Richards-Ross, and the summer installments of this series are expected to be downright peachy.
Bonus: Queer as Folk, season 1
Based on the 1999 British drama series of the same name, Showcase’s new series reimagines Queer as Folk for today’s generation. Set in New Orleans, season one of the new Queer as Folk shares a poignant and authentic story of a diverse group of friends through the complexities of life, love and relationships — all while they navigate the grief and trauma of a life-changing tragedy that shakes and stuns their community.
