The Real Housewives of Dubai (RHODubai) debuted in June of 2022 and was Bravo’s first foray into the international Housewives market.
The franchise premiered on a high note, with episode one reaching 769,000 viewers, according to TV Deets. However, by episode 5, viewership was down to 495,000.
Despite the lackluster ratings, fans aren’t ready to give up on RHODubai just yet. Fans think Bravo needs to give RHODubai the chance to succeed, noting that many Housewives franchises have had slow starts or seasons that were snoozefests. If you recall, the Real Housewives of Dallas and the Real Housewives of Potomac didn’t do so hot during their first seasons. It wasn’t until each of the franchise’s second seasons that their ratings really picked up.
It seems that Bravo is listening to fans and isn’t giving up on the Dubai Housewives just yet.
According to various reports, season 2 of RHODubai is set to begin filming in February of 2023. It’s unclear if the cast will remain the same or if Bravo will shake things up.
Season 1 of the franchise starred Nina Ali, Chanel Ayan, Caroline Brooks, Sara Al Madani, Lesa Milan, and Caroline Stanbury.
With that said, it will be interesting to see who Bravo brings back for the franchise’s second season.
