Given the enormous success that Vanderpump Rules has experienced throughout its run on the air, fans are always hopeful for another season as soon as one ends. Season 10 of the Bravo reality series ended in June 2023, but what about Season 11?
The show continues to follow the cast of characters as they deal with various dramas in both their personal and professional lives.
And, while some fans had worried that the show might go out with a bang and end after the tenth installment, Season 11 premieres on Jan. 30. Rest assured, the drama is still very real. There may even be some surprises along the way.
When was 'Vanderpump Rules' Season 11 filmed?
When Season 10 ended, fans learned about Tom Sandoval's infidelity with co-star Raquel Leviss and his subsequent breakup with Ariana Madix. What followed the end of the season was a news flurry of the exes warring over their shared home, Ariana moving on with multiple new business opportunities, and Tom and Raquel breaking things off.
While Season 11 doesn't showcase everything that went down after filming ended for the tenth season, we do see the aftermath of Scandoval. This includes Tom being gone to film World's Toughest Test in another country, and Ariana being cast on Dancing With the Stars. It looks like filming for Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules took place in the summer of 2023 and, very likely, shortly after that too.
Jax Taylor is back on 'Vanderpump Rules' — sort of.
While there is plenty of drama this season, including an admission from Tom Schwartz about kissing Scheana Shay at some point in the distant or not-so-distant past, we also have the return of "number one guy in the group" Jax Taylor. He is featured in the Season 11 trailer, and since he has his own Bravo series, The Valley, set for a 2024 release, this looks like it's going to be his jumping off point for that.
Bravo also announced the renewal of a slew of other shows.
Since it's become the home for some of the most popular reality TV programming around, Bravo announced that it would be renewing many other shows at the same time it made the announcement about Vanderpump Rules.
Among the shows renewed were Top Chef, a bunch of Real Housewives shows from across the country and Dubai, Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles, Watch What Happens Live, Southern Hospitality, Below Deck, Southern Charm, Below Deck Mediterranean, Winter House, and Below Deck Down Under.
The official press release announcing all of these renewals also suggested that Bravo was setting streaming records for many of its shows on Peacock.
“Bravo is home to five of the top 10 unscripted reality shows across cable, and Bravo programming on Peacock is breaking records with the first three months of 2023 ranking as its most-watched on the streamer," the release explained.
Vanderpump Rules is almost undoubtedly among those high-performing shows, given the fact that it shows up on the platform soon after a new episode airs. The episodes typically drop on Peacock on Wednesdays, meaning that anyone who doesn't have a cable subscription can still catch up with the new episode soon after it's released.
Now that the show is back for Season 11, it seems that die-hard Vanderpump fans will have another reason to keep their Peacock subscription. Bravo realty series are certainly at the center of our pop culture conversation, and in the past few years, that has been especially true of Vanderpump Rules.
Watch Vanderpump Rules on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
