Leakes and Zolciak-Biermann both appeared as original cast members during the show’s first season in 2008. Leakes continued on with the show through the seventh season. She went on to appear on the eighth season in a supporting role. Zolciak-Biermann left the show in the middle of the fifth season.
Other cast members to appear in Season 10 include Sheree Whitfield and long-time running castmates Kandi Burruss, Porsha Williams, Kenya Moore, and Cynthia Bailey. Phaedra Parks will not return to the show.
“I’m back, and of course the haters still know I’m here,” Leakes says during the trailer, adding, jokingly, “Is my wig still down?”
As promised during the trailer, featured this season will be Moore’s wedding to businessman Marc Daily, after which Zolciak-Biermann can be heard commenting, “She married a fan.” Moore took to Instagram in June to feature a photo from the event.
Meanwhile, Bailey spends some of the season focusing on her new love interest, to the dismay of her ex-husband Peter Thomas. Likewise, Whitfield has seemingly found love with an inmate in a federal prison, causing worry among her friends.
As seen in the trailer, further events this season will be a 911 call and an emergency, and Parks will attempt to go vegan.
The show is set for its season premiere on Nov. 5 at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo. The Atlanta series follows two previous Real Housewives series, taking place in Orange County and New York City. As of 2014, the Atlanta series was reported as the highest-rated Real Housewives installment and the most-watched series airing on Bravo.
