In with the very new.
As previously reported, The Real Housewives of New York City Season 14 will feature a many fresh names and faces, as the long-running franchise undergoes a significant reboot in the hopes of recapturing its former ratings-based glory.
And now? In the wake of BravoCon 2022 taking place over the weekend in The Big Apple?
We can confirm the identities of each new cast member, along with a few more pressing details:
Sai De Silva, Ubah Hassan, Erin Dana Lichy, Lizzy Savetsky, Jessel Taank and Brynn Whitfield are officially set to star on Season 14.
Filming will start this fall.
New episodes will premiere in 2023.
The network announced it was revamping this series in March — in addition to launching a “Legacy” version of the show featuring Big Apple-based alums from its original run.
“You know that we’re at a crossroads for The Real Housewives fo New York City,” Andy Cohen said at the time, referencing controversial storylines involving Ramona Singer and other longtime stars.
“We’ve spent a lot of time figuring out where to go. And the plan that we’ve come up with, I think, is a real gift to the fans.”
Cohen also noted back then the two programs will “take into account everything that our passionate audience has really been telling us over the last year,” which featured a major ratings drop and the cancellation of the Season 13 reunion.
