Everything We Know About Karen Huger's Real Housewives Of Potomac Spinoff

The "Real Housewives" franchise includes up to 12 shows under Bravo (via Style Caster), and that's not to mention the array of international editions. Bravo understands its audience. That's why there's a constant revolving door of franchises airing at any given time. Yet somehow, fans still just can't get enough content.

We totally get it. Sometimes you're craving some of "The Real Housewives of New York City" star Sonja Morgan's shenanigans while "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" is what's airing. That is why die-hard fans have gotten into the habit of becoming serial re-watchers, with old seasons of any given franchise constantly in rotation. Again, Bravo understands its audience, and they keep giving them more and more — enter, spinoff series. 

When a Housewife becomes an icon, fans simply demand more screen time for them. What better way to achieve that than to give the Housewife her very own spinoff series? It is rare, and even more rarely successful. While many spinoffs tend to be short-lived, some can garner such huge success that they spiral into having their own cult following like Lisa Vanderpump's extra dramatic "Vanderpump Rules," per Screen Rant

But a category in and of it's own is the few-episode-special spinoffs that shine a spotlight on a special event in a beloved Housewife's life. And while fans eagerly await the next installment of "The Real Housewives of Potomac," there's one Housewife they all want to see more of. It looks like they're getting their wish...

Karen Huger, the Grande Dame, is getting a spinoff series

"The Real Housewives of Potomac" OG Housewife, Karen Huger, was an instant fan favorite. Whether you love her or love to hate her, Huger undeniably delivers quality TV. Her shade is impeccable, her mess is superbly messy, and her one-liners never go amiss, according to Screen Rant. That's not to mention the star's flawless sense of fashion that's always applauded (via Hello Beautiful), that is, aside from the camo jumpsuit we don't talk about. 

Huger likes to think of herself as the matriarch of the group, but the truth is she's a pot-stirrer a lot more often than she is a mediator. Since she's always involved in the drama in one way or another, Huger definitely needed more screen time. With Season 7 of "RHOP" still in the works (via Heavy), fans will be delighted to hear that Huger will be getting her very own spinoff series: "The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion," per Hollywood Life

Karen Huger heads back to Surry County for her special

As the self-titled Grande Dame of Potomac, it was only right that Huger get her own spinoff. Over the past couple of seasons of "The Real Housewives of Potomac" Huger has always proudly spoken about her hometown Surry County. She even used an episode of "RHOP" to show her being crowned as the ambassador of Surry County as well as filming a tourism video ... from Potomac, per Bravo

Well, "The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion" promises to delve deeper into Huger's hometown by following her trip back home. An insider revealed to Hollywood Life that the show will be, "About Karen's dynamic with her amazing family members in Virginia. The show will be a deeper dive into her personal life and her family's heritage and some deep personal stuff that should be very impactful and show you what her family life was like prior to being the Grande Dame."

Karen Huger reunited with family members for the special

The spinoff has been confirmed to be a two-episode special that follows Karen Huger's Wooden family reunion back home in Surry County, per E! Online. Huger will be joined by her husband Raymond Huger and daughter Rayvin as they reunite with Huger's cousins and her Aunt Val. Huger shared a cute shoutout to her daughter Rayvin in a tweet that included the special's trailer. "When your mini me and you join forces great things happen," she wrote. "Love you beyond @rayvinhuger."

Huger and her relatives dive in to planning the big event and attempting to reach out to her family members. While the idea behind them getting together is for a family reunion, there are also important matters they need to tackle. The Wooden family take on the task of determining what will happen to the 82-acre land that has been in their family since the 1800s — and they aren't all on the same page...

The Wooden family clash over land in a trailer for 'The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion'

People shared a "supertease" trailer that provided fans with a thrilling first official inside look at the spinoff series. The teaser placed a heavy emphasis on the family members attempting to reach a conclusion on what to do with their land moving forward. Some suggested setting up a plan for the younger generation to take a more active role.  

The trailer also introduced a family member that seems even more strong-headed and powerful than Huger. That would be her Aunt Val. Val is essentially introduced with a shot of her firing a rifle, and she clearly shares her position in the trailer. "We have family land that we could lose, and that's what I don't want," she said. 

While Huger backs her up by leading a family meeting and posing an important question. "What would be the next step for protecting what Granddaddy, Daddy, everybody fought for so hard? Who steps up?" She explains her stance in a voiceover: "I am making sure that we maintain what they sacrificed their lives for. The Wooden Farm."

The Grande Dame also shared the trailer and a heartfelt message on Instagram. "Thanks to #TrulyOriginal, to @rwbmedia for endless support and reaching our goal together, to my family, love you all. This is just the beginning, buckle up," she wrote.

Karen Huger broke it down on the dance floor in a trailer for 'The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion'

Despite dealing with some serious family business, "The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion" doesn't appear to be all about work. People's exclusive preview also showed Karen Huger's Wooden family having some wholesome family fun while wearing matching "Wooden Family Reunion" sweatshirts. But the best part of all is watching Huger breaking it down on the dance floor on more than one occasion.

"The Real Housewives of Potomac: Karen's Grande Dame Reunion" is set to air on Bravo April 17, 2022 at 8 p.m. ET. That will be just a few weeks after filming is scheduled to begin for the highly anticipated seventh season of "The Real Housewives of Potomac," which Huger was invited to return for, according to TV Deets

We'll likely have to wait a bit of time for Season 7. This special will hopefully keep fans well-fed in the meantime. Huger summarized what to expect best in the opening scene of the trailer. "This is a story about family. This is a story about history," she said. "This is a story about succession."
