Don’t raise your glasses high just yet.
The future of “Vanderpump Rules” is still up in the air, sources told E! News. E! News and Bravo are owned by the same parent company, NBCUniversal.
“There is now no timeline for the show’s return,” the source said. “With so many uncertainties during the COVID pandemic, showrunners are telling the crew that the show has not been canceled, but the upcoming season is currently on hold, and asking them to please sit tight until the future is more clear.”
The show typically films in the summer months, but production was not able to begin as SUR, Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant that is the focal point of the show, was closed due coronavirus restrictions. It has since reopened.
It is also unclear who would be returning the show, as Brett Caprioni, Max Boyens, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute were all fired for past racist actions in June. The remaining cast members from Season 8 are Lala Kent, Brittany Cartwright, Jax Taylor, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Scheana Shay, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss.
Since filming wrapped last year, Cartwright, Kent, Shay and Schroeder all became pregnant.
“Vanderpump Babies,” anyone?
