“The Real Housewives of Miami” was left out of the summer/fall programming schedule, but according to a source, this isn’t the end for the series.Following Bravo’s April 8 announcement, a source revealed to Cable TV exclusively that the show has not been canceled.
“It’s not listed on the Fall program lineup because filming doesn’t start until the Fall,” the source explained. “That means we will air in the Spring.”
This information appears to confirm a statement made in Feb. 2014 by Alexia Echevarria.
After Joanna Krupa reportedly insinuated that the series had been canceled, Echevarria spoke to E! News, claiming season four had already been spoken about.
“There will definitely be a season four for Miami. I have spoken to producers and they are currently working on dates for taping, since we usually begin taping this time of year we were told taping is being pushed back a little,” she said at the time. “The producers spoke to all of us and told us all the same thing.”
In addition, Lea Black spoke out on Twitter, telling fans, “The fat lady hasn’t sung”Rumors again? Bravo has made no decisions abt #rhom4 but wouldn’t aire upcoming season-Miami is always late! lol.”
Although the program hasn’t exactly been a hit for the network, at least when compared to other cities such as “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” Miami appears to be a town Bravo is very much interested in. Despite the first two seasons delivering lackluster ratings, about 1 million per episode on average, Bravo continued on with a third season, in hopes at seeking a ratings spike. Unfortunately, that isn’t what they got.
While the first three episodes captured between 1.32 and 1.39 million viewers, the show’s viewership declined mid-season with a low of .65 million viewers. Towards the end of the season, things appeared to be heading back up as the weddings of Joanna Krupa and Adriana de Moura aired. The two-part reunion special for season three captured 1.07 and 1.0 million viewers.
Bravo has also added a new Miami-based series into their lineup.
On Tuesday, “Million Dollar Listing: Miami” was named as one of 15 new programs coming to the network.
“With a surging market in South Florida, properties are selling for record rates and agents are cashing in on massive commissions like never before,” Bravo said in the written announcement. “Business can get heated as the brokers attempt to make a name for themselves and outshine their competition by landing the next listing.”
Perhaps this new Miami program will lead viewers to have an increased interest in the women of Miami.
