There’s a vacancy in the Summer House!
On Friday night, Hannah Berner announced she would not be returning to Summer House for season 6.
“This past year has been one of the most important in my life for self-reflection, love, and learning a lot of shit,” Hannah wrote on Instagram. “I’ve welcomed new career ventures, challenges and obstacles, and opportunities for growth. As we climb out of the emotional trenches of 2020, I look forward to an exciting summer, but with mixed emotions, I’m announcing I won’t be spending it living in the summer house.”
“These last three summers have truly been a whirlwind and the show has, without a doubt, changed my life and I will forever be thankful for the platform it has provided me,” she continued. “Making people laugh is what brings me joy and I am so excited to announce that I will [be] spending this summer touring my standup and telling fart jokes at comedy clubs and theaters near you. More dates and tickets to come soon, but I cannot wait to see you all in person!!!”
The comedian joined Summer House during season 3 which aired in 2019. Season 5 was particularly ugly for Hannah as she came under fire for comments she made about her Summer House co-stars on various podcasts. She received the most heat for making unsavory remarks about suicide and castmate Luke Gulbranson’s emotional struggles.
Hannah expressed remorse for her comments in May 6 statement on Instagram.
“I’ve recently been made aware of some talk online regarding comments I made on a podcast two years ago referencing suicide ideation and I want to apologize for my insensitivity regarding such a serious topic,” she wrote. “I consider myself to be a very fierce advocate for mental health awareness, and I understand that I crossed the line. To everyone who has brought this to my attention, I want you to know that I hear you, and I am sorry.”
Summer House is expected to return to Bravo in early 2022.
