Basketball Wives is an American reality television series franchise on VH1.[1] It chronicles the everyday lives of women romantically linked to men in the professional basketball industry.

The original incarnation was filmed in Miami, Florida and premiered on April 11, 2010. Basketball Wives LA, a spin-off based in Los Angeles, premiered on August 29, 2011, however, both shows ran for five seasons. Basketball Wives' success has led to 6 spin-off series in all; Basketball Wives LA, Football Wives, Baseball Wives, Shaunie's Homecourt, Baller Wives and Basketball Wives Orlando.

On March 27, 2017, VH1 announced that Basketball Wives would be revived for a sixth season, with its setting relocated to Los Angeles, effectively combining the casts of both the original series and its spinoff.[2] Subsequent seasons have also featured this hybrid cast.[3]

On June 13, 2023, VH1 renewed the series for an eleventh season, set to air this fall.[4] On August 31, 2023, Henderson announced that Basketball Wives LA would return for an eleventh season on October 9, 2023, together with an Orlando-based spin-off, that would make its series premiere right after.[5]
