Overview

Seasons 1–3

On March 10, 2010, Bravo announced a new series called Miami Social Club, which was a restructure of the 2009 series Miami Social.[1] However, after filming, the network decided to turn it into an instalment of the network's The Real Housewives franchise.[2] Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton, Larsa Pippen, and Cristy Rice were announced as the show's main cast members, with no recurring characters. The first season premiered on February 22, 2011 and concluded on April 5, 2011. After the first season, both Pippen and Rice left the show for undisclosed reasons.[3]

Bravo renewed the show for a second season, which began on September 13, 2012 and concluded on January 8, 2013. Black, de Moura, and Patton returned as the series' main cast members, while four new housewives were added: Joanna Krupa, Lisa Hochstein, Ana Quincoces, and Karent Sierra. Echevarria returned to the show as a recurring cast member to focus on her son Frankie, who had been injured in a car accident in 2011. Sierra left the show after season two because of scheduling conflicts while filming The Doctors L.A. in Los Angeles.[4][5][6][7][8]

The third season was renewed by Bravo and aired from August 12 to November 14, 2013. Black, de Moura, Hochstein, and Krupa returned as the show's main cast members. Echevarria was promoted to full-time cast member, and Quincoces and Patton returned as recurring characters.[9][10][11] Additionally, Sierra appeared as a guest throughout the season.[12] After season three, Bravo confirmed the cancellation of the Miami series, making it the franchise's second cancellation after The Real Housewives of D.C..[13]

Season 4–present

Andy Cohen, the show's executive producer and reunion host, stated in November 2020 that talks were underway to return the show to Peacock.[14] The series' return date was confirmed in February 2021.[15][16] Season four premiered on December 16, 2021 and ended on March 10, 2022.[17] The entire cast was rebooted, including six housewives as main cast members: Lisa Hochstein, Alexia Nepola (formerly Echevarria), and Larsa Pippen from previous seasons, as well as Guerdy Abraira, Julia Lemigova and Nicole Martin as new cast members. Adriana de Moura and Marysol Patton, both from the original cast, appeared in recurring roles, as did Kiki Barth, who was added to the rebooted cast.[18] Previous cast members, Lea Black and Joanna Krupa, were asked but declined in returning to the show.[19]

Peacock renewed the show for a fifth season in October 2022, confirming its premiere date in December 2022.
