The show—which followed the lives of several affluent women living in Miami, Florida, ran for three seasons until its cancellation in 2013. In October 2021, news broke that The Real Housewives of Miami had been rebooted eight years after its cancellation for Peacock, NBC Universal’s streaming service.

The Real Housewives franchise started in 2006 in the US with the premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County. The original series—which starred OG of the OC Vicki Gunvalson and four other Housewives—led to the creation of Housewives shows in nine other cities across the United States: New York City, Atlanta, New Jersey, D.C., Beverly Hills, Miami, Potomac, Dallas and Salt Lake City. The Real Housewives of Dubai, which was announced in 2021 and is the first international Real Housewives show to air in the U.S., will premiere in 2022.

Why was The Real Housewives of Miami cancelled?
Why was The Real Housewives of Miami cancelled? The Real Housewives of Miami was cancelled in 2013 after three seasons. In a video on his Instagram Stories in 2020, an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, revealed that Bravo cancelled The Real Housewives of Miami after season three due to low ratings.
“It looks like a well-lit telenovela. The women are so beautiful. And the men and Miami. People ask me about Miami all the time and say will you ever bring it back?’ he said. ““The reason that we let it go was, I remember the ratings went down toward the end of the season. Which never happens. Like it went down for the reunion, and if it’s going down toward the end that’s just never a good sign. But anyway, I hear your love all the time and really appreciate the show and the women.”
Cohen speculated that the drop in ratings was due to the lack of screen time of Mama Elsa, Marysol’s mother who was a fan-favorite on the series. “And mama Elsa got sick and dropped out so that was a big hit for the show, it was…it just ended,” he said.
Lea Black, who starred on The Real Housewives of Miami from seasons one to three, claimed in a past interview that the show was cancelled due to the change in air times. “It wasn’t the ratings because the ratings were equal to many of the other shows on the air at the time so I don’t think it was the ratings,” she said. “The scheduling might have had something to do with it because they [Bravo] changed every week, it was on a different night or different times so that was a little confusing. For me, it was just a blip on my radar, it was four years, 30 episodes, three seasons out of my life. I met some interesting people, some of it was a bit of fun and I learned some hard lessons you know things you not only experienced in life, like people willing to do anything for attention.”
