Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 11: Release Date, Cast, And New Details

"Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" is one of, if not the most successful facets of the bulging "Love & Hip Hop" franchise. Premiering on VH1 in 2012, per IMDb, the hit show follows a variety of Atlanta musicians and businesspeople who are heavily involved in the local hip hop scene, alongside cameos from well-known celebrities with connections to the area. "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" is a spinoff of "Love & Hip Hop: New York," which debuted in 2010 (via IMDb) and launched the career of Cardi B, in particular, per Complex.

Much like the other editions, "Atlanta" continues to pull in viewers because of the entertainingly drama-filled escapades of its main characters, who are all at various levels of success. It's currently ten seasons strong, and, as 105.1 The Bounce reported at the time, social media lit up when the show returned for its bumper tenth season, despite filming ultimately being halted by the pandemic. Now Season 10 has finished, though, and various reality shows are back on schedule, fans are clamoring for Season 11.

Here's everything we know so far.

When is Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 11 slated to air?

Per IMDb, Season 10 of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" finished airing in September 2021, so it's a little early for us to be expecting new episodes (boo). There was a significant gap between Season 9 and Season 10, while the tenth iteration of the hit show was also cut short due to the encroaching COVID-19 pandemic, as Cheat Sheet notes. Next Season TV and Premiere Date both report "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" has yet to be cancelled or renewed by Vh1. But interest in the series remains high, so there's no reason to believe it won't return.

Moreover, as Cheat Sheet points out, the franchise is expanding all the time, with at least two further spinoffs percolating as of December 2020. Although numerous productions have been halted and even completely shut down across the globe due to pandemic restrictions, the fact Season 10 went ahead at all is a good sign. Per The Cinemaholic, the show is filmed throughout Atlanta, so it really depends how strict the city is in general. Simply put, we can expect Season 11 to come back as soon as it's safe, and hopefully before 2022 is up. 

Who can we expect to see on Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 11?

The cast of "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" has remained fairly consistent throughout the show's run but, for Season 10, several exciting new faces joined the roster. As The Wrap reported at the time, Raedio vocalist Yung Baby Tate, rapper Renni Rucci, who's signed to Lil Baby's record label, and up-and-comer Omeretta The Great, who counts Baby and Nicki Minaj among her fans, all came along for the ride. 

Joining them were "Love & Hip-Hop: New York" stars Yandy Smith-Harris and Mendeecees Harris, who'd recently relocated to Atlanta. Season 10 promised to bring "music back to the forefront with a female-led ensemble in the epicenter of hip-hop navigating careers, business empires, layered family dynamics, mental health, and fighting for Black liberation during a national reckoning amid a global pandemic."

Returning to the fold were Rasheeda Frost, Spice, Sierra Gates, Bambi, Karlie Redd, Kirk Frost, Yung Joc, Erica Mena, Momma Dee, Safaree Samuels and Scrappy. It remains to be seen whether anybody new will join the cast for Season 11, or even if all our fan favorites will be back, but there's certainly reason to be excited for some shake-ups. 

What else do we know about Love & Hip Hop Atlanta Season 11?

As Shadow and Act notes, "Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta" is the highest-rated show in the hit franchise, continuing to draw in viewers all these years after its initial debut. In a joint interview with several cast-members and series creator Mona Scott-Young, Rasheeda Frost admitted it was tough taking a break from the show due to the pandemic. "It was definitely a big change, but it's good to be back up and running outside. A lot of [the cast] hadn't seen each other so getting back to the business, back to work and back to doing what we do is a good feeling," she said.

On why the show continues to be so popular, Scott-Young demurred, "It's always been a collective effort." She elaborated, "I always credit the talent because without them being so open and letting us into their lives day in, day out, there would be no show." As far as the "Love & Hip Hop" producer is concerned, it's enough just to have contributed to history and culture in some small way but, regardless, "I feel honored, I feel proud, but definitely always very, very blessed and grateful for the success and longevity of the franchise." Evidently, Season 11 is going to be a must-watch.
