A new Vanderpump Rules spinoff is in the works at Bravo.
Following a massive surge in ratings, due to Tom Sandoval‘s controversial affair with girlfriend Ariana Madix‘s best friend and co-star, Raquel Leviss, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are reportedly set to star in a new series with fellow show alum Kristen Doute.
On June 28, Deadline said the potential show, which is expected to include eight episodes, will follow the group after their stints working at Lisa Vanderpump‘s SUR restaurant in West Hollywood to The Valley, where a number of current and past Pump Rules cast members own homes.
As fans well know, Jax and Brittany, who previously starred in 2017’s Vanderpump Rules: Jax & Brittany Take Kentucky, own a $1.9 million home in The Valley, where they are raising their two-year-old son Cruz. And Kristen also purchased a home in the area, although she sold it for $1.3 million in late 2021 to move in with now-ex-boyfriend Alex Menache.
Although Deadline confirmed that contracts have not yet been signed for the new Pump Rules spinoff, the idea has been tossed around for years, and Jax has spoken frequently about his impending return to television ever since he and Brittany exited Pump Rules in December 2020.
“We’ve got some projects in the works that we’re really excited about so keep following us,” Jax teased on his Instagram Story last July.
Months later, in her book, Off With My Head: The Definitive Basic B–ch Handbook to Surviving Rock Bottom, Stassi Schroeder confirmed that prior to her and Kristen’s firings from the show, which came on the heels of racism claims from Faith Stowers, a Pump Rules spinoff was looming.
“The Vanderpump spinoff was supposed to be bridged by an episode about my gorgeous, Italian wedding, which would then introduce the new show. Surprise! We were all so looking forward to that,” she wrote. “[And] at first, we thought the spinoff would still go ahead.”
No word on when the potential series will begin airing on Bravo.
