Season 10 of The Real Housewives of New York City ended this week after part three of the reunion aired on Bravo, but fans are already talking about RHONY Season 11. The network has not yet announced a premiere date, but if they stick with the show’s regular schedule, the first episode will air in early April.
The last four seasons have had an April premiere date, and it has also been airing on Wednesday nights. So, if we do the math, it’s quite possible season 11 will begin on April 3, 2019, since it is the first Wednesday in April. Of course, they could decide to switch things up, but even if they did it is likely we will have to wait at least seven months before the next season begins.
#RHONY Yes, the #RHONY already started filming. The HWs requested it. They want to film in the warmer months in NY so they can do fashion week, etc and take longer vacations over the winter. pic.twitter.com/UP7YMRuq4Y

When it comes to Season 11 expectations, the only thing we know for sure is that Carole Radziwill will not be returning. She made the announcement back in July that she was giving up her apple after six seasons.
“I am sure this does not come as a surprise to any of the viewers, all of whom have been supportive, encouraging, and kind. My original curiosity about reality television has waned over the years and I am focusing on TV and writing projects that better suit my more steady temperament. I have worked with amazing producers, made great friends, and I’m thrilled to leave frenemies behind. I will remember this entire experience with delight, humor, and a veracious accuracy. Next,” said Radziwill.
There has been speculation that former cast member Jill Zarin could be replacing Radziwill, but in an interview this summer she said that would only consider coming back as a Friend of the Housewives, but not full-time.
There is also a question about Bethenny Frankel since she had such a tough season 10, not to mention the fact that the women ganged up on her during the reunion. Frankel had drama with just about everyone this past season, and her friendship with Radziwill completely crumbled before viewers’ eyes.

She also had quite a few emotional and overwhelming moments, so many are wondering if Frankel will return for Season 11. But, since Radziwill is gone, Frankel’s storyline would be completely different if she does come back. However, the Skinnygirl mogul does have a lot going on outside of the show, so it is possible she will leave again.
Frankel was on the show for its first three seasons before leaving for the next three. She returned in season 7, and since then has been one of the most outspoken and well-known Housewives in the entire franchise.
Bethenny Frankel has not commented about her future plans with the show, but Bustle is reporting that she had not signed her RHONY contract as of late August. However, she usually confirms her return “just in time.”
