Overview and casting

Seasons 1–3

On March 10, 2010, Bravo announced the series Miami Social Club had been picked up as a restructuring of the 2009 series, Miami Social.[1] After filming completed, Bravo decided to make it an installment of the network's The Real Housewives franchise.[2] The first season premiered on February 22, 2011, and starred Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Alexia Nepola, Marysol Patton, Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice. Pippen and Rice left after the first season.[3]

Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Ana Quincoces were added to the cast for the second season, which premiered on September 13, 2012. Nepola was demoted in a recurring role in order to spend more time to care for her son, injured in a 2011 car accident.[4][5][6][7][8]

The third season debuted on August 12, 2013, with Nepola returning as a full-time housewife, while Patton and Quincoces were demoted to recurring capacity.[9][10][11] Sierra appeared as a guest.[12] By September 2016, Bravo stated that The Real Housewives of Miami had "ended", making the franchise the second to end after The Real Housewives of D.C. was cancelled in 2010 after one season.[13]

Season 4–present

In November 2020, The Real Housewives executive producer Andy Cohen said that there were talks to return the show for a fourth season on the streaming service Peacock.[14] In February 2021, the series was confirmed to be making a return.[15][16] Shortly after the announcement, previous cast members Joanna Krupa and Lea Black both stated that they were not interested in appearing on the new season.[17]

In October 2021, Peacock confirmed season 4 would premiere in December 2021 with returning housewives Lisa Hochstein, Alexia Nepola and Larsa Pippen being joined by Guerdy Abraira, Julia Lemigova and Nicole Martin. It was also announced that Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton would return as friends of the housewives with Kiki Barth also joining as a friend.[18] The season aired on Bravo in 2022.
