Real Housewives of Potomac’s season 6 explored
In its initial seasons, RHOP struggled to gain the prominence that other shows from the Real Housewives Franchise did. However, season 5, which aired in 2020 successfully put RHOP on the map, thanks to the infamous physical fight between cast members Candiace Dillard and Monique Samuels.
So far RHOP’s new season has released three episodes, since its July 11 premiere. While the show is still in its early days, Nicki’s recent Instagram post offering to host the season 6 reunion has got many fans speculating about the reunion’s potential date.
Bravo is yet to announce an official date for this year’s reunion, but we do have a tentative one for you.
The previous seasons of RHOP had a reunion special after it was done with 19 episodes. For instance, season 5 featured 19 episodes that were aired on a weekly basis between August 2 to December 6 (approx. 5 months). The reunion specials for the fifth season aired in the subsequent weeks in 3 parts. Meanwhile, season 4 and season 3 followed a similar pattern.
Hence if RHOP season 6 brings us 19 episodes like the previous seasons, it will go on till November, and reunion specials can be expected in the subsequent weeks. As per our investigation, one can expect the reunion to take place somewhere around late November or early December.
