Janet Roach Confirms That Season Five Of The Real Housewives Of Melbourne Has Been Delayed And Will Start Filming In January 2021! Plus Janet Hints That Jackie Gillies May Return To The Show!

Janet Roach has revealed that The Real Housewives of Melbourne has been delayed - once again. Roach told Ticker TV's Jumpstart this week that filming was scheduled to resume in July, but the Foxtel hit reality series has now been pushed back until January 2021, according to The Daily Mail.

"We were supposed to start filming the first week of July - I had all my summer wardrobe ready!" she told hosts Alana Maclean and Benjamin Norris.

"Foxtel have decided that they're not going to start again until January," she continued.

Roach also confirmed that Jackie Gillies may return to the series. If you recall, Gillies announced her departure from the show to focus on starting IVF with her husband Ben Gillies, but according to Janet, the delay in filming could see Jackie back on the series by the time production resumes next year.

"She'll be back for the next one," Janet said, adding, "She might be back for this one!"

In February 2020, Foxtel unveiled the official lineup for the upcoming new season of The Real Housewives of Melbourne. Anjali Rao, Kyla Kirkpatrick, and Cherry Dipietrantonio have officially joined the cast for Season 5. They will be joined by returning cast members Gamble Breaux, Gina Liano, Janet Roach, and Lydia Schiavello.

Foxtel’s Group General Manager, Lifestyle said: ‘The Real Housewives of Melbourne is our most loved reality program and our audience has been literally begging for us to bring it back. We couldn’t do that without shaking things up and adding a bit of spice to the fun. These are strong, successful women, and we love having a window into their lives. This is going to be viewing you can really sink your heels into...’

Matchbox Pictures Managing Director, Alastair McKinnon said: ‘The arrival of three sensational new Housewives promises to bring a new season full of all the explosive drama, scandal and high-flying antics that audiences all over the world have come to love. The wait is almost over!’

The 10-part one-hour series is executive-produced by Lisa Potasz, Pip Rubira and Dan Munday for Matchbox Pictures, in conjunction with Foxtel and will air on Foxtel’s Arena at a date to be announced.

However, in March 2020, the network confirmed that production was put on hold due to COVID-19 pandemic.
