Bravo Orders More Real Housewives and Just Desserts, Adds 11 New Shows

Bravo announced the renewal of five hit series on Wednesday, proving without a shadow of a doubt that those Real Housewives aren’t going anywhere.

The network has picked up the Beverly Hills and Atlanta editions of Real Housewives for second and fourth seasons, respectively. Of course, one glaring omission from Bravo’s list of renewals is the Housewives of DC, which wrapped months ago and is rumored to be canceled. However, a rep for the network says a decision on that series’ future has yet to be made.

Top Chef Just Desserts, which had a rough go of it ratings-wise during its first installment, has been renewed for a second season, and we’ll also get a fourth season Tabitha’s Salon Takeover and  — officially Bethenny Ever After‘s Season 2.

Additionally, Bravo announced 11 (!) new series pickups, several of them featuring fan fave Bravolebrities. Here’s the 411:

Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis: The Flipping Out superstar — along with Jenni and Zoila — moves in with clients to help reorganize their homes, and their lives.

It’s a Brad Brad World: Rachel Zoe’s ex-assistant Brad Goreski is finally out on his own and taking the fashion world by storm.

The Therapists: A docu-series that follows the lives of LA’s top private practice therapists.

Mad Fashion: Onetime Project Runway scene stealer Chris March is back in his own series about celebrity fashion design.

Million Dollar Listing NY: Bravo’s hit real estate series heads to the East Coast.

Miss Advised: Watch three “single relationship experts” — yes, really — help women juggle their personal and professional lives.

Most Eligible: Dallas: Think The Hills, but in Texas.

Project Soulmate: Lori Zaslow is the new Patti Stanger. Meaning Soulmate follows the day-to-day life of a New York matchmaker.

Ready to Wear: Love thrift shops? This show will explore the world of a high-end NYC consignment store.

Roble and Co.: Watch the ups and downs of celebrity chef Roblé Ali.

Tabatha Takes Over: Instead of salons, Tabitha is taking over everything. All businesses are fair game. (We’ve already padlocked the TVLine front door and changed all our passwords.)

  • “The network has picked up the Beverly Hills and Atlanta editions of Real Housewives for fourth and second seasons, respectively.” Just a note (and I’m kind of sorry I know this):Beverly Hills is getting picked up for season 2 and Atlanta for season 4, so the sentence should read, “The network has picked up the Beverly Hills and Atlanta editions of Real Housewives for seasons 2 and 4, respectively,” but minor detail.

    On another note: I LOVE Million Dollar Listing, so I’m interested to see how the show does in a new setting and with a new set of agents. Any news on the premiere date??

    And also: Project Soulmate? Did they cancel Millionaire Matchmaker, or are there going to be two shows about matchmaking-this one in NY and Patti in LA?

  • I’m a huge fan of Bravo, but they seriously need to renew DC already. I totally agree about Work of Art. That should definitely come back for season 2.

    This networks sort of boggles my mind. On one hand, they’re reality programs always seems fresh, and some of the best on TV. But on the other, they give shows to such seemingly ordinary settings. Thrift shops? Relationship experts? Robbie and Co? I feel like half of these shows will tank.

  • 11 new shows? Wow.

    I have to say, though, that I’m more than a little disappointed by the absence of Fabio. With all these new shows and ‘old’ Bravo faces, why not give the king of the gnocchi something? Like that vacation Blais promised to take him to. I just need more Fabio.

    However, glad to see some more Flipping Out is coming. In some way. Zoila is number one. Or tied for number one with Fabio. (Number one for what? No clue.)

    More ‘Real’ Housewives? Please no. Just no.

  • I’ll miss Millionaire Matchmaker, if that’s indeed gone… assuming they dumped Top Design for good this time. (sigh) Biggest happiest surprise was the renewal of Top Chef Just Desserts – that first season was drama to the max! Also happy about Tabitha taking over the world… should be fun.

  • Yay for more JEFF LEWIS! He’s my guilty pleasure every summer and now that we’re sadly D List free, I want more Jeff! And Jenni!

    It’s a CRIME that they never had Jenni guest on Old Christine as Christine’s look-alike! ;)

  • Blaise and Fabio really need their own show. What a great combination! Also, I’m thrilled there will be a second season of Top Chef Just Desserts. More please!

  • Cancel D.C. housewives..please.they were so fake and toxic, boring and just plain mean.unwatchable. Bravo should just let this one go and move on..pretend like it never happened.

  • Let me also chime in on wondering if we will get a 2nd season of Work of Art and also saying that Fabio needs his own show. Just follow him around with a camera. There doesn’t even need to be a shtick to it.
