Basketball Wives fans react to missing eps
It wasn’t long before fans noticed that Basketball Wives appeared to have come to an end, following two weeks of no episodes.
The majority of viewers seemed to assume that the series had just ended, and ran its course, but others had questions.
While some think the show has been cancelled, others are more interested about when the drama will be back on their screens.

It also looks like there never was an eighth episode planned, as season 9’s finale aired on March 23, which was episode 7.
Filming was also confirmed to have been cut short due to Covid-19 restrictions, according to cast member Evelyn Lozada.
However, episode 7 came out a day after OG – whose full name is Ogom Chijindu – posted an Instagram claiming other cast members had “tried to get her into a physical altercation”.
During season 9, Basketball Wives heavily focused on the colorism issue that was discussed between OG and Evelyn Lozada.
The finale date announcement left fans in shock, who said that nothing was resolved and that OG’s storyline was dragged out.
Several fans even called for the show to be cancelled as a result of the storylines – and it looks like VH1 listened to them for the meantime.
While there have been no confirmations of any cancellations, insiders told The Sun they have scrapped plans for a reunion special.

However, the official air date planned for season 10 has not yet been announced by VH1, at the time of writing.
This comes despite rumors that the show could be axed due to a fall in ratings, as latest figures showed it had 489,000 viewers for March 9.
