RHOP Season 5 Premiere Postponed Until Summer Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

Publish date:

Real Housewives of Potomac fans will be disappointed to learn that the premiere date for season five has been pushed back until the summer.

A source close to production told PEOPLE that the show, which was slated to premiere Sunday, May 3 -- had been postponed until this summer. 

Bravo also posted the announcement but promised that the upcoming season will be well worth the wait.

Gizelle Bryant, Karen Huger, Ashley Darby, Robyn Dixon, Monique Samuels, and Candiace Dillard Bassett will all be back and they'll be joined by the newest Potomac Housewife, Wendy Osefo, a professor, political analyst, entrepreneur, wife, and mother of three. 

"Wendy is Black Girl Magic personified," Candiace says in the above trailer for Season 5. "She could read a book, honey, and she could read you down."

Several Bravo shows have stopped production due to the pandemic, and reunion shows for Real Housewives of Atlanta and Venderpump Rules will be filmed virtually.
