Warning: Spoilers ahead! Stop reading here if you don't want to know what happens during Selling Sunset season 6.
The fifth season of Netflix's hit reality real estate TV show Selling Sunset brought all the drama, high fashion, and breathtaking real estate fans could have hoped for. Chrishell Stause's not-so-secret romance with her boss, Jason Oppenheim, was out in the open. Heather Rae Young tied the knot with Tarek El Moussa, and Christine Quinn kept things...really interesting.
And, with British realtor Chelsea Lazkani now part of the Oppenheim Group family, it feels like things are only just getting started with this new crew.
Between the finale cliffhangers, the reunion reveals, and all the updates fans have been getting through social media, it’s only natural to wonder what happens next. Luckily, WH has you covered with everything there is to know so far about what's next for the ladies on season 6.
Read on to know about the next drama-filled season.
Season 6 is coming!
Heck yes! Before season 5 even debuted, Netflix confirmed that it has renewed the mega-hit reality show for a sixth season. Everyone can breathe a sigh of relief. In fact, Netflix also confirmed that not only was a sixth season coming down the pipeline but a seventh one, too.
The show will likely debut sometime in 2023.
There’s no confirmed release date as of yet.
However, the cast filmed seasons 5 and 6 back-to-back, and it is possible they’re taking a breather before jumping into filming for season 7. With that in mind, it’s unlikely that season 6 debut until some time next year.
Will Christine Quinn return?
After being accused of bribing a client not to work with fellow cast member Emma Hernan at the end of season 5, Christine future at the brokerage seemed to be in question. Now, US Weekly has confirmed that Christine has left the show after five seasons.
She also hinted at her departure in July. “Hulu, give me a call,” she jokingly told The New York Times.
Before the news broke, it sounded like there would be some sort of arrangement where Christine and the rest of her castmates could co-exist even if she wasn't working at the brokerage.
In April, Christine announced that she and her husband were starting a new company called RealOpen, which specializes in cryptocurrency real estate transactions: "Why work for someone else when you can be your own CEO?" she wrote in the caption.
In May, she also told US Weekly that she was in a "really good place" with Jason Oppenheim since her departure from the firm and even hinted at a potential plot for the next season. “The show is, like, my No. 1 [and] everyone knows that," said Christine. "But we just have to get creative now because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group… Maybe it’s a battle of the brokerages.”
There's no telling what caused the change of heart or where Christine and Jason stand now that she won't be on the show, but it looks like those previous plans have gone down the drain.
And in case you were wondering whether or not she was fired, a source told Us Weekly that she left the firm on her own terms. “It was Christine’s decision to leave the Oppenheim Group,” they explained.
Christine has also made claims that the whole situation was scripted. “Bless their hearts for trying [to make the bribery storyline a big deal],” she told US. “But no, that absolutely did not happen…I watched the show and I was shocked. I was completely shocked."
Who will be coming back for season 6?
While nothing is confirmed right now, it seems pretty likely that show regulars Chrishell Stause, Mary Fitzgerald, Heather Rae El Moussa, Amanza Smith, and Brett and Jason Oppenheim will be back. Davina Potraz will likely be there, along with semi-newbie Emma Hernan. It’s not clear if Chelsea Lazkani was just in the mix for season 5 or if she’ll become a regular like Emma did after season 4.
Chrishell's new boo G Flip could possibly make an appearance.
While Chrishell has been incredibly open about her personal life on-screen, it’s still unclear whether her partner G Flip, the Australian musician, will appear on season 6.
The team still needs to discuss what cast members are willing to publicly share with viewers. "We haven't met with Chrishell about it yet," creator Adam DiVello shared with E! News. "I hope we do get to see G Flip."
Heather is pregnant.
Yup, that's right. Heather Rae El Moussa, 34, announced on her Instagram that she and her new hubby Tarek are pregnant. Will the show feature their pregnancy journey? Everyone is dying to know.
On July 13, she alerted her followers that she’s due in January of 2023, meaning she’s only about three months pregnant. How cute are those “Baby El Moussa coming January 2023” shirts that her step-kids are sporting, though?!
Who isn’t coming back?
Maya Vander, who has been on the show since the very beginning, announced that she will not be returning to the screen this season. (People saw it coming, and she told Women’s Health this could be the case right after season 5 aired).
She said in an Instagram story that she “decided not to go on with the show and it was not an easy decision!” But she is still “very proud of [her] Selling Sunset family for getting two more seasons and hopefully Emmy nomination.”
Maya moved to Miami to be with her husband and two children. Prior to her move, she was doing a lot of cross-country flights.
Maya also pointed to the fact that she hasn't had as much air time during the past few seasons. “I would love to be a part of the show, but it’s less than ideal for me to put in all this effort and then you see the finished product and I’m barely in it,” she told WH. “I sacrifice a lot, but I get it. The audience wants to see more drama vs. ‘here’s Maya selling a house.’”
One of the newer additions to The Oppenheim Group, Vanessa Villela, who made her debut during season 4, is also moving to London with her now-fianceé, Nick Hardy, so she may also be calling it quits on the Sunset Strip. And as of June 27, a source told People she still hasn't signed a Netflix contract for seasons 6 and 7.
So, what do we know about season 6 so far?
WH knows a lot has changed since filming concluded—the end of some relationships and the beginning of others, more feuds, an exciting pregnancy announcement for the El Moussa's...I could go on.
But at this point, it's anyone's guess!
