The Real Housewives franchise cancelled soon? Far from it, according to host Andy Cohen, who sees no end to the Bravo franchise — or his involvement — as it moves towards Year 12, per THR:
Next year is going to be season 10 of the Real Housewives of Atlanta and we’re 11 years into the Housewives franchise and we’ve got four million people watching the Atlanta reunion. Considering how bifurcated TV is and how everyone’s going to different places to get it, that a basic cable franchise is still pulling in such powerhouse numbers, tells you everything you need to know about the strength of this franchise and why I have no interest in not being a part of it.
On the secret behind franchise’s longevity:
It’s great storytelling, we keep it fresh. I think it’s like a great soap opera. Soap operas, the good ones, run for a very long time. We bring new people in, we take them out and it’s all in the casting and the storytelling.
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the renew/cancel status of Bravo’s entire Real Housewives franchise…
