The Real Housewives of Miami is an American reality television series that airs on Bravo and debuted on February 22, 2011. It is the seventh installment in the network's The Real Housewives franchise.
On March 10, 2010, Bravo announced the series (then titled Miami Social Club) had been picked up and was to be a restructuring of the failed 2009 series, Miami Social. Later, after filming was completed on the series, Bravo chose instead to make it a new installment of the network's The Real Housewives franchise. Bravo announced on February 3, 2011 that the series would premiere later that month and that the fourth season premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City, originally scheduled for February 15, would be pushed back until April.
The Real Housewives of Miami was renewed for a second season with season one housewives Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice not returning. Bravo officially green-lit the return of the series for a second season, on February 9, 2012, with new full-time Housewives casted: Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Ana Quincoces. On July 24, 2012, Bravo officially announced that the second season of The Real Housewives of Miami would premiere on Thursday, September 13 at 9/8c. The second season reunion was filmed on November 30, 2012 and aired in two parts starting on December 27, 2012.
A third season was confirmed in March 2013, when controversy started as the production company who produces the series, Purveyors of Pop, proposed the use of drones in order to film B-roll aerial shots for the third season. Marysol Patton furthered the confirmation that production had started for season three, when on March 20, 2013, she posted a photo on social media of herself, Ana, Lisa, Adriana, and Alexia attending Miami Fashion Week. Bravo officially announced the third season renewal on April 2, 2013 — although no cast changes, nor premiere date, were revealed. It was announced on June 24, 2013 that the third season would debut on August 12, 2013, with Lea Black, Adriana De Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Lisa Hochstein, and Joanna Krupa as main housewives, with Marysol Patton and Ana Quincoces demoted to recurring. Karent Sierra was not asked to return as a main housewife. The season features both Adriana de Moura's wedding to Frederic Marq and Joanna Krupa's wedding to Romain Zago. As of the end of filming on season 3, The Real Housewives of New Jersey and The Real Housewives of Miami are the only two series within the franchise wherein all the main housewives are married. The third season reunion was filmed in New York City on October 17, 2013. All the Housewives in the main cast were in attendance, as was recurring cast member Marysol Patton. Ana Quincoces did not partake in the reunion.
Alexia Echevarria confirmed on February 6, 2014, that The Real Housewives of Miami will return for a fourth season.
