Vanderpump Rules Season 10: Details We Know So Far

"Vanderpump Rules" started life as a spin-off of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," and ever since its launch back in 2013, the reality show has gone from strength to strength. So much so, that many fans probably don't even remember the show's humble beginnings as a spin-off series. "Vanderpump Rules" has never been short of drama, from numerous cheating scandals to several cast-members getting fired for allegedly racist behavior, as Hollywood Life reported. 

Season 9 wasn't as well-received as previous installments, however, with Reddit users in particular calling for the show's cancellation. As Screen Rant details, there are concerns the drama is overly produced, while the cast isn't as close-knit as they originally were because so many people are missing. Likewise, because they're now rich and famous in their own right, it's tough for viewers to get on their level and relate to their struggles anymore.  

All things considered, though, when or if "Vanderpump Rules" does return for Season 10, we'll all be tuning in. Here's what we know so far. 

Will Vanderpump Rules return for Season 10?

According to Heavy, "Vanderpump Rules" hasn't yet been renewed for a tenth season. However, Season 9 took a while to materialize due to COVID-19 restrictions, among other reasons, so there's no reason to panic just yet. The ninth season was confirmed in April 2021 and filming started later that same month, so it's entirely possible that we'll find out "Pump Rules" is coming back before the year is out.

The cast is keeping schtum for the time being, with Lala Kent admitting during a December 2021 episode of her "Give Them Lala" podcast, "[If] tomorrow they call me and say, 'We've been picked up,' I would take a big pause because I don't know if that's the space for me anymore." 

Elsewhere, the fact Scheana Shay's planned nuptials to Brock Davies are no longer taking place in Bali signaled to some fans that the wedding will be covered onscreen, and within the show's budget. "Vanderpump Rules" typically films during the summer, so we've still got a little while to wait for news regarding the show's return either way. However, there's no reason to believe it'll be canceled, particularly since, as TV Deets notes, ratings spiked for the Season 9 finale.

Who will be in the cast of Vanderpump Rules Season 10?

Lala Kent had a difficult time on Season 9, wrapping things up at the reunion by confirming her split from her ex-fiancé and baby daddy, Randall Emmett. However, despite the fact Kent previously hinted that she might have outgrown the show, the reality star admitted in an interview with Page Six, "I would have to see how I felt. I don't know what my future holds." 

For Kent, "nothing is off the table," though she also acknowledged feeling like an outsider amongst the cast. Kent previously hinted at a desire to join the "Real Housewives" franchise instead, per Heavy, telling the "Not Skinny But Not Fat" podcast "Salt Lake City" would be a nice fit since it would also mean returning to her roots. 

Elsewhere, some fans have speculated that Raquel Leviss might not return following her emotional breakup with DJ James Kennedy, per Screen Rant. Katie Maloney-Schwartz, on the other hand, is holding out hope her Witches of WeHo besties, Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, might come back someday after being fired following accusations of racist behavior. 

"Never say never. I don't even know how the future of the show [looks]," Maloney-Schwartz told Page Six, adding that she does "hope the show keeps going on forever and ever and ever, so if that's the case, then who knows [if they'd be able to come back?] Probably." 

What else do we know about Vanderpump Rules Season 10?

As Cheat Sheet notes, "Vanderpump Rules" returned for its ninth season after a significant gap, and with a major cast shake-up. As a result, resources were depleted as stalwarts Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney-Schwartz, and James Kennedy were joined by relative newcomers Charli Burnett, Brock Davies, and Raquel Leviss. Although we don't know who'll be returning for Season 10, when it materializes, at least one Pumper is excited for the show to come back.

Speaking on her "Scheananigans" podcast alongside her fiancé and baby daddy Davies, Shay shared, "The finale and reunion ratings were the highest they were all season. So ending on a high note like that I think is such a good sign that the viewers want more." Moreover, Shay reasoned, "They're interested in how this story ended. And wanna see where it's gonna go." Davies agreed, pointing out fans are clearly eager to continue on this journey with stars they've been getting to know for years. 

For her part, Shay admitted she's "manifesting" another season, "Because I think there is still so much story to tell. Like there's so much going on with us right now. Even yesterday ... disagreements that were said in the press, and phone calls and texts. I'm like, this is why we have a show."
