The Scandoval has caused plenty of grief, but is Vanderpump Rules cancelled? Did Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss manage to put an end to the Bravo reality series—and the friend group—with their infidelity? 

We just got a sneak peek of the toxic and argumentative Vanderpump Rules finale, and we think it's safe to say season 10 is the most memorable one to date. But where do things go from here now that everyone, more or less, hates each other? Will we get a season 11 of Vanderpump Rules? Here's what we know.

Is 'Vanderpump Rules' cancelled? We have an update:

Happy news, Pump fans: Vanderpump Rules season 11 was officially announced on Tuesday, May 9, though a premiere date has not been set just yet.  

The news come along with a host of other reality-show renewals from Bravo, including fresh seasons of The Real Housewives of New York, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The Real Housewives of Dubai, and more. 

A press release from the network read: “Bravo is home to five of the top 10 unscripted reality shows across cable, and Bravo programming on Peacock is breaking records with the first three months of 2023 ranking as its most-watched on the streamer.”

The press release adds, “Highlighting one of the strongest fandoms across cable television, NBCUniversal’s wide-ranging upcoming entertainment slate across Bravo, E!, SYFY, and USA Network includes returning hits, beloved franchises, and a trio of debut series.”

It's not surprising that we'll be seeing more Vanderpump Rules down the line: the dramatic ordeal between Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss has given the longtime franchise new life! 

Why fans were worried about 'Vanderpump Rules':

The reason fans believed things were coming to an end for Vanderpump Rules is because TMZ recently dropped word that Pump Restaurant, Lisa Vanderpump's longtime lounge and restaurant in West Hollywood, is set to close in July 2023. 

"It's with heavy hearts that we announce that the lease at Pump Restaurant is expiring, and we will be closing its doors on July 5th, after 10 years of beautiful evenings under our olive trees," the statement read. 

While the shuttering definitely comes as a bit of a surprise considering the restauranteur is opening two additional spots in Caesars in Las Vegas and seems to have the hospitality industry on lock, it's not a direct reflection on the show, considering the main group got its start at LVP's restaurant, SUR. If that restaurant were to shut down, then we'd have some questions.

Allegedly, the decision to end Pump's 10-year-long reign came when Lisa and her husband Ken uncovered that they would have to pay $1 million in rent annually for the spot on Santa Monica and Robertson in West Hollywood, a jump that was even too drastic for the cast member with the highest Vanderpump Rules net worth.

"While we have loved our time operating Pump, to take on another 10-year lease with a huge increase in rent by the landlords, is not something we are ready to commit to. After successfully running 37+ establishments for many years, this type of rent is untenable," the statement added. 

Before we jump ahead with the future, we're still waiting to see what unfolds at the end of this contentious tenth season. The Vanderpump Rules reunion is likely airing on Wednesday, May 24, though Bravo is withholding the release date and keeping anxious fans on their toes. We suspect it will be a three-part situation à la The Real Housewives reunions. 

One thing's for certain: even though it hasn't aired yet, this reunion will definitely go down in the Bravo history books. 

“If you are looking to hear [Tom and Raquel's] story, you will,” host Andy Cohen said on WWHL. “If you are looking for them to be confronted to their face about what they’ve done, in what I would say [was] an aggressive manner—a confrontational manner—you will get it.”

Vanderpump Rules airs on Bravo on Wednesdays at 9pm EST, and can be streamed next-day on Peacock.
