Is ‘Summer House’ Renewed for Another Season and Who May Not Return?
Although summer has yet to begin, Bravo’s Summer House concluded for the year. The fizzy booze-fueled drama about millennials who party their brains out in the Hamptons ended the season with a proposal and a party.
While the show had tepid ratings, Summer House continues to have a loyal fan base. Bravo even featured two mash-up episodes that included four cast members from Vanderpump Rules partying with the Summer House crew.
But did this season provide enough juice to sign Summer House for season four? Although Bravo has not made an official announcement, a few clues point to Summer House returning for another season. But who may be coming back (and who is not)?
The show experienced cast shakeups in the past
After the first two seasons of drama and drunkenness, three cast members were excused from the show. Lauren and Ashley Wirkus, plus their buddy Stephen McGee exited the show. Season two cast member Danielle Olivera was supposed to be cut too. But she returned for season three.
According to Bravo, cast “refreshes” are necessary to keep the storyline engaging. “As with all Bravo shows, production sometimes refreshes the cast, but it doesn’t mean they don’t come back or make an appearance in the season,” a source told People.
Former cast members have moved on. The Wirkus twins returned to California. Most recently Ashley Wirkus welcomed her first baby in May.
Why it looks like the show will return
A few small clues point to the show’s return. First, every Bravo fan loves a wedding. The cast of Vanderpump Rules is preparing for the nuptials of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. The wedding is likely to be included in the next season too. Some of the Real Housewives have even had spin-off shows that featured their wedding.
Since Summer House ended with Kyle Cooke proposing to Amanda Batula (she said yes), Bravo probably sees a good opportunity to leverage the blessed affair for strong ratings. The big question is: are they getting married this summer?
Also, the Summer House Wikipedia page appears to be updated to accommodate season four. The page includes who will part of the main cast and perhaps who is getting cut this time too.
Who might be cut this year?
If indeed the clues lead to Summer House season four, some cast members may not return. The Wikipedia page shows that Lindsay Hubbard’s ex-boyfriend Everett Weston will no longer be a guest on the show.
Plus, Jordan Verroi and Danielle Olivera are on the chopping block. Verroi was new to the house this year, but his uncomfortable vibe may have put fans (and the rest of the cast) off. Newbies slated to (hopefully) return are Hannah Berner and Paige DeSorbo.
An unnamed source close to Bravo told Page Six that while Verroi and Oliver were cut, they may make a guest appearance next year. Currently, though they are not listed as guests. Plus Bravo hasn’t indicated who could be new to the cast either.
