Fans and viewers of The Real Housewives are still in the midst of a housewives drought, and now Bravo reportedly put a pause on filming the new season of Vanderpump Rules the summer after Season 11 ended, which is when they would usually film. With that in mind, Bravo fans are now wondering if VPR's spinoff, The Valley, will be returning for Season 2. The new series has been very successful, with moments happening that will go down in Bravo history when the inaugeral season was only halfway over.

The series stars VPR alums Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, and Kristen Doute.

And the drama hasn't stopped when it comes to these three. The marital issues between Brittany and Jax have been front and center alongside other major issues within the cast. With so many things left up in the air, fans were itching to know if there will be a second season. And now that we know there is going to be a Season 2 of The Valley, those same fans want all of the tea, like, right now.

Has 'The Valley' been renewed for Season 2?

Thanks to all of the drama and multiple "to be continued" episodes of The Valley, Bravo rolled out another banger that fans immediately took to. And on May 9, 2024, Bravo announced that the show had been renewed for Season 2.

However, fans shouldn't expect a reunion special to end the season, like with most other Bravo shows.

Kristen and Luke Broderick addressed this on their podcast when fans wanted to know if there will be a reunion special in addition to a new season, and they confirmed there won;t be a dramatic reunion at the end. At least, for the first season. The good news, however, is that The Valley was reported to begin filming in the summer of 2024, which is when VPR typically films. So we might get a second season sooner than we think.

Who is in the cast for Season 2 of 'The Valley'?

As of right now, the cast for The Valley hasn't seen any major changes. Yes, we have two couples split up for the time being, but that doesn't necessarily mean that anyone is leaving the show. And, according to Jax on his and Brittany's podcast When Reality Hits on May 10, he was scheduled to meet with producers about casting.

"We have a couple meetings that I have to go deal with that we're trying to think, if there was somebody else, other groups of couples that, you know, we could bring in that would be organic and feel right," Jax explained.

He added that, although he's getting questions about cast members from VPR joining The Valley, that's not the plan.

"As of right now, that's a no," he said. "That's a hard no. But who knows — it could change."

Why is 'Vanderpump Rules' going on hiatus?

Andy Cohen elaborated on this decision to take a break on his show, Radio Andy. Scandoval took a toll on the entire VPR cast and they began filming immediately after the news of the affair broke. Andy shared on his show that a break will be good for the cast. The idea is that they will all be in different places when the cameras decide to start rolling again.

Watch The Valley on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
