Pour yourself a Pumptini because Vanderpump Rules is BACK!
Bravo has finally given VPR the green light to start filming for season 9!
Per Page Six, Pump Rules will begin filming season 9 next month after a year-long hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“They plan to shoot” around the first week of May, a source tells Page Six.
Stars Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Maddix, Scheana Shay, Lala Kent, James Kennedy, and Raquel Leviss will all be back for season 9 along with Lisa Vanderpump, the owner of SUR.
Some new cast members may be added into the mix to replace the seven stars who have left the show since season 8.
Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni, Kristen Doute were all fired by Bravo in June 2020 because of past racist behavior.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright announced their exits from the show in December 2020. Season 8 newbie Dayna Kathan confirmed in April 2021 that she would not be returning for season 9.
VPR is expected to resume their normal filming schedule of filming all summer long.
