The Real Housewives of Dallas has been canceled for the indefinite future.

The network revealed on Tuesday that it has no plans to renew the popular series for a sixth season for the time being.

“There are currently no plans to bring The Real Housewives of Dallas back next year, and beyond that nothing official has been decided,” a spokesperson for the network confirmed to Page Six.

Although Bravo isn’t calling this a cancellation, it pretty much amounts to that as The Real Housewives of Miami was also never officially canceled by the network despite its last episode airing back in 2013.

And similar to the RHOM, which is set to stream on Peacock within the next year, the RHOD could also potentially return to another medium at some point.

This comes after rumors suggesting only three season five cast members would be returning because Bravo was looking to change things up after two controversial seasons in a row.

Though it’s unclear why the network is choosing not to renew the show for a sixth season (although it is the Real Housewives franchise with the lowest ratings), the news does come on the heels of a statement Bravo released in support of season five newcomer Dr. Tiffany Moon, who is Asian.

“Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community,” the network declared in a statement back in May. “Anti-Racism is, in fact, not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr. Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence.”

Bravo was forced to issue the statement after Tiffany was attacked on Twitter and accused of being “anti-racist” by her now former co-star, Kameron Westcott, along with her husband, Court Westcott, and brother-in-law, Chart Westcott.

“‘Anti-racism’ is racism,” Kameron’s husband wrote in a since-deleted tweet. “It discriminates by the color of ones skin. They tried that once in Germany, it did not work out well. I don’t understand how many of your patients would be comfortable with you treating them with your open vile racism [sic].”

As fans well know, this wasn’t the only racial controversy among the cast members as LeeAnne Locken made seemingly racist comments to Kary Brittingham in season four, and Brandi Redmond was forced to apologize after a video of her mocking Asian women resurfaced ahead of season five.

For the time being, the cast, including Tiffany, Kameron, Brandi, Kary, Stephanie Hollman, and D’Andra Simmons, have yet to comment on the shocking news.
