Selling Sunset is one of the most-talked-about reality shows out there—and the upcoming Selling Sunset reunion is sure to add even more drama to discuss. 

The Netflix show, which is set in California's high-end homes and allows us to follow incredible girl-boss realtors, is cutthroat, to say the least—and we’re not just talking about the L.A. real-estate market.

Los Angeles is always hot but on Selling Sunset the tea is always hotter, as the realtors are engrossed in drama with another. Selling Sunset season 5 brought the arrival of "Black and Blonde Barbie" (a.k.a Chelsea Lazkani and Christine Quinn) who are planning for global domination but they’ll start with L.A., not to mention the all-important details surrounding Chrishell Stause and Jason Oppenheim’s short-lived romance and Tarek and Heather’s wedding.  

Netflix knew ten episodes of Selling Sunset was not going to be enough for fans and so announced that for the first time ever, a Selling Sunset reunion was on its way. And we have all the important details information surrounding the reunion that was filmed on April 24th, including when will it be released and which major cast member won't be there.

When will the 'Selling Sunset' reunion air on Netflix?

Netflix has announced that the Selling Sunset reunion will be released on Friday, May 6, 2022, and will be hosted by none other than Netflix’s Queer Eye and Next In Fashion star Tan France!

Which cast members will be at the 'Selling Sunset' reunion?

The streamer has confirmed that Oppenheim Group owners Jason and Brett Oppenheim will be attending the reunion. They will be joined by Jason’s now ex-girlfriend and fellow realtor Chrishell Stause, as well as Mary Fitzgerald and her husband Romain Bonnet.

Other featured cast members include Heather Rae El Moussa, Amanza Smith, Maya Vander, Davina Potratz, Vanessa Villela, Emma Hernan and the newest Selling Sunset cast member, Chelsea Lazkani.

On Monday, April 25, Netflix released the first cast photo of the Selling Sunset reunion. Unsurprisingly, it looked very glamorous. But, wait...is someone missing? 

Look closely and you'll realize a certain realtor does not appear alongside her cast members. Did Christine Quinn get fired? What does her absence mean? Now our curiosity is truly in overdrive.

Will Christine Quinn attend the 'Selling Sunset' reunion? 

According to TMZ, Christine Quinn was unable to attend the reunion as she had tested positive for COVID-19. She also couldn't attend virtually, like Amanza Smith did (she also tested positive for the virus), as Quinn was reportedly just too sick. 

Quinn's rep told the outlet: "Christine tested positive for COVID on Saturday and out of an abundance of caution, she did not attend the reunion." 

Considering Christine Quinn is the ultimate reality-show TV villain and one of the most-loved members of the show, we understand why fans are saying the reunion should have been rescheduled to accommodate the star. 

But, to be honest, we don't know if Christine would have turned up anyway, as throughout the season and particularly at the end Christine expressed that she didn’t need to be at the brokerage and was thinking about leaving and starting her own company. It seems like she's done just that, as since the release of season five, Quinn has changed her Twitter bio and announced that she is the founder of RealOpen

The announcement that she has co-founded a new company with her husband Christian Dumontet suggests that she is no longer with the Oppenheim Group. However, she is still featured on their website, but that could just be because the brokerage is in need of a good site update.

Season five of Netflix’s Selling Sunset was a lot, with a lot of drama between the other cast members and Christine Quinn. The final episode of the season saw Christine being accused of bribing Emma Hernan’s client and subsequently refusing to attend a meeting with Jason and Mary to discuss the incident, a.k.a. a lot of issues we would have liked to see resolved at the reunion. 

What can we expect from the 'Selling Sunset' reunion?

Speaking of drama, we can expect loads of it from the reunion—this is Selling Sunset, after all. We don’t know what exactly will be discussed but we can take a guess that Christine Quinn’s future at the Oppenheim Group will be a hot topic, as well as where Davina and Chelsea stand after that fight and perhaps an update on how Chrishell and Jason are doing post-breakup. But that’s just skimming the surface because Heather revealed on her Instagram that they started filming around 6 am and didn’t finish until well after sunset, suggesting they talked a lot at the reunion. So here’s hoping Netflix doesn’t cut any of the juicy bits!

Will there be a 'Selling Sunset' season 6?

While there has been no release date announced just yet, Netflix has already confirmed that the hit show has been renewed for seasons 6 and 7. So need to fear, that this is not the end of the show even if Christine Quinn leaves, but that’s a topic for another day!
