Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18

After a slightly misguided Season 15 which included no longtime cast members, Bravo started taking a new approach to The Real Housewives of Orange County. Rather than do a RHONY-style refresh of the longest running Housewives franchise, why not just start bringing back fan favorites? Season 16 saw the return of Heather Dubrow, who had exited after Season 11, and Season 17 welcomed Tamra Judge back to the mix. This past season they also swiped Taylor Armstrong from RHOBH to be a new friend of the housewives.

Now that Season 17 has wrapped up, Bravo fans have started wondering what may be in store for Season 18, and if the rumor mill is to be believed, we may see even more OG RHOC housewives snatching their oranges back. We're still a long way off from Season 18 of The Rea Housewives of Orange County, but here's everything we know so far:

Will there be a Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18?

All signs point to yes. While there's no official word from Bravo yet, RHOC is their longest running series, and it would be shocking if they cancelled it. Many RHOC housewives past and present were at Bravocon 2023, so it seems like only a mater of time before filming begins again.

When does The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18 premiere?

There's no premiere date set yet, but since Season 17 just wrapped, it seems unlikely that we'll get Season 18 anytime before late 2024.

Who is in the cast of The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 18?

No official cast for Season 18 has been announced yet, and since filming hasn't began, a lot could still change. Season 17 featured six housewives including Tamra Judge, Heather Dubrow, Shannon Storms Beador, Gina Kirschenheiter, Emily Simpson and Jennifer Pedranti, with Taylor Armstrong joining as a "friend of." None of the Season 17 cast has announced their departure from the show at this time.

However, there are also rumors swirling around the internet that Bravo is eying more OG RHOC ladies to pad the lineup. The names being bandied about include Vicki Gunvlson, Alexis Bellino and Gretchen Rossi. It's also always possible that a completely new housewife could enter the mix.

Is anyone leaving The Real Housewives of Orange County after Season 17?

So far none of the Season 17 housewives have announced that they won't be returning for Season 18, but there's certainly time for someone to make an exit.
