It's officially the end of an era. According to TMZ, Bravo has officially pulled the plug on Shahs of Sunset after nine seasons. Production sources told the outlet that the Bravo series has run its course, so the decision was made to scrap the show.

However, sources tell Page Six that the decision axe Shahs came down to money.

Interestingly, a Ryan Seacrest Productions source told the outlet that money and nothing to do with the cancellation. The show "simply ran its course."

In case you missed it, Mike was arrested for domestic violence on March 27, 2022, in Los Angeles. Even though Mike's alleged victim was left unnamed, fans are convinced that Paulina was involved. Mike later was released after paying $50,000 for bail. Since then, the star has denied the allegations.

However, two sources close to Shahs production team tell Page Six that Mike's brush with the law is not related to Bravo canceling the series.

“Mike’s situation has nothing to do with what is currently being reported about the show,” one insider claims.

A second source agreed by saying, "There was little chance that Mike would return if there was a new season anyway.”

Additionally, sources tell the outlet that some of the OG members may be back on the small screen very soon. Bravo is reportedly in the early stages of a new project that is set to feature Reza Farahan, Mercedes “MJ” Javid and GG. There's no telling if other OG cast members will be involved, but we assume more information will be shared at a later time.
