The Real Housewives of Vancouver (abbreviated RHOV) is a Canadian reality television series on the Canadian SliceCable channel. It is the first Canadian installment of The Real Housewives franchise; production for the Shaw Media-distributed series began in August 2011. The show premiered on April 4, 2012. The two-hour premiere achieved the record of the highest-rated premiere in the network's history by attracting 1.2 million viewers.
On May 30, 2012, Slice announced that the series was renewed for a second season. Production for season two began in July 2012 with Jody Claman, Ronnie Seterdahl Negus and Mary Zilba returning with new cast members, Amanda Hansen, Ioulia Reynolds, and Robin Richmond Reichman. The second season premiered on February 5, 2013. Slice chose to pass on a reunion for the second season in order to provide more episodes rather than having to cut the season even shorter.
It was announced on June 6, 2013, that Slice has put the series "on hold" while it explores other programming. On June 27, 2014, during the divorce trial of Jody Claman who now states she is no longer a celebrity, it was confirmed that the show has been cancelled.
