The Real Housewives Of Toronto Not Renewed For A Second Season!

Corus Entertainment held their annual upfront presentation this week, where they announced the slate of new and returning shows for their 2017 and 2018 lineup. Unfortunately, a few shows have been confirmed not to return - one of them being The Real Housewives of Toronto, reports Toronto Star.

Programming chief Barbara Williams confirmed the bad news on Thursday. The Real Housewives of Toronto, which aired on Slice and Big Brother Canada, which aired on Global TV.

“We have to keep changing it up, we have to reinvent and try new things,” says Williams, executive vice-president and chief operating officer of Corus Entertainment, which owns Global  and Slice networks, in an interview.

Williams says she is aware of a social-media outpouring demanding BBCAN to return for a sixth season this fall. But that isn’t in the cards for now.

“Still, we never say never for the future. We are super proud of those seasons we did,” says Williams. “But the best example is something like American Idol being cancelled and coming back. You never know what can happen.”

As for The Real Housewives of Toronto, Williams says the network may even try a different Canadian city altogether.

“I thought the first season was really fun, but whether we do Toronto again, or maybe even another city, I don’t know,” said Williams. “We won’t bring it back right away in the fall. We may take a bit of a break.”

Williams stressed that Big Brother and The Real Housewives of Toronto aren’t being cancelled but are on “hiatus,” and could be picked up again at a later date.

Hopefully RHOT doesn't follow the same fate as The Real Housewives of Vancouver. Back in 2013, Slice confirmed that they were putting RHOV "on hiatus" despite pulling strong television ratings for the network, which they later cancelled the series after two successful seasons.

In June 2016, three years later after the cancellation of RHOV, Corus confirmed that they were working on the first season of RHOT, which premiered on Tuesday, March 7, 2017 on Slice.

The Real Housewives of Toronto followed the lives of six successful and wealthy women living in Toronto. The cast consisted of Ann Kaplan Mulholland, Gregoriane "Grego" Minot, Jana Webb, Joan Kelley Walker, Kara Alloway and Roxy Earle.
