ITV has confirmed plans to expand the UK’s Real Housewives franchise, announcing plans to launch The Real Housewives Of Jersey in late 2020.
ITVBe, the boutique specialty channel that airs The Real Housewives of Cheshire, will also air the upcoming Jersey-set show.
“Filming is reportedly getting underway in the next week and The Real Housewives of Jersey is due to arrive on ITVBe later this year,” ITV shared in a statement on their website.
The UK is set to get its second Real Housewives city with ITV announcing The Real Housewives of Jersey will premiere later this year.
The announcement may be confusing to fans as Bravo already has a Real Housewives of New Jersey state-side. This new UK-based show, however, will film on location in the British Isles, completely setting it apart from its American counterpart.
Jersey Island is “an island of rediscovery where landscapes are just waiting to be explored,” according to their official tourism and travel agency, Discover Jersey.
“Whether it’s the view from the battlements of a 12th century castle, a beach walk along Jersey’s unspoilt coastline or taking time to reflect while you watch the sun sink into the sea over St Ouen’s Bay, Jersey is there to be discovered.”
According to Instagram fan page @real_housewives_love, Margaret Thompson, Tessa Hartmann, and Kiri Cavill are some of the names being floated as joining the show.
