Calling all SURvers, “Vanderpump Rules” is back! “Vanderpump Rules” took a break in summer 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but it was just a short break after all. The Bravo series will begin filming season 9 in early May, a spokesperson for the network confirmed to Variety on Tuesday, April 27.
As for the cast, fans can expect to see many familiar faces. Lisa Vanderpump, Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, Ariana Maddix, Scheana Shay, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, and Raquel Leviss are all returning. Newcomer and fan favorite Dayna Kathan announced earlier this month she will not be coming back.
The restaurants will look a little different, as they have all adjusted due to COVID-19 protocols. The super popular Bravo series first premiered in 2013 and has been a hit ever since. The show follows former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump as she manages her various restaurants and employees. This season may also look a little different, as Sandoval and Schwartz will focus more on their partnership at Tom Tom than bartending at SUR.
