You may be wondering when we’ll hear something from Bravo about when Season 6 of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be back. In seasons past, RHONJ has premiered most often in May, once in April, and last year was in early June. So it stands to reason that we should be expecting an announcement in the very near future if the timeline would be similar for this season. In fact, last year’s June 2 premiere date was announced on April 3, a date which came and went almost two weeks ago at this point. So, it’s very likely that RHONJ Season 6 will be premiering later than any years past. This makes sense, too, because we know filming was delayed this season in an effort to capture the Teresa & Joe Giudice fraud trial which then was delayed again anyways. We also know that filming on Season 6 wrapped last month, so at least production should be well underway on editing down the final cut.
Yesterday, AllAboutTRH published a story claiming that New Jersey will be returning in July! Their sources confirm:
“Producers have told the housewives that season six of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will be set to air in July and they will announce it soon. The season is going to be a lot different from the last few seasons!”
But, when in June might My guess is that we’ll need to wait for RHONY to wrap up before Bravo kicks of the new season of RHONJ. Similarly to how RHOA wrapped up the same week that RHOC premiered (with the exception of reunion shows, of course), I’m betting we’ll see the first episode of RHONJ air within a week of the final episode of RHONY Season 6. So, when might we expect the final episode of RHONY? I’m going to take a guess based on seasons past and hypothesize that this season will be 18 episodes. If that were the case, the final episode would air on Tuesday July 8, 2014. RHONJ has aired on Sundays for the past two seasons. So, my guess for The Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 6 premiere date is Sunday, July 6, 2014!
The other thing to consider is how Teresa’s sentencing hearing will be handled by Bravo. The hearing is set for July 8, 2014. Bravo will likely want to capitalize on any media hype surrounding the hearing so a July 6 premiere date might be good timing in that regard. However, this type of situation is obviously unprecedented in Housewives history so I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
If an early July premiere date is correct, I’d bet we’ll see an official announcement from Bravo in early May. Perhaps an announcement could happen during the 90-minute Part III of the RHOA reunion on Sunday, May 4. You can bet we’ll be watching with eyes peeled!
What do you think about The Real Housewives of New Jersey possibly returning in July? Are you excited for Season 6?
