Fans of the original Basketball Wives series will have to wait a little bit longer for the show to return.
Season 5 of the hit VH1 show was originally slated to return in the spring, but the show is now scheduled to return in August 2013. This means the show will have been off for more than a year before it makes its way back to television.
Season 4 of BBW premiered on February 20, 2012 and wrapped on May 28, 2012 after 17 episodes. Currently there is no definite premiere date set. Fan favorites Royce Reed and Jennifer Williams will not be returning for the new season. Meanwhile, Tasha Marbury (wife of Stephon Marbury) has been added to the cast.
In other news, after pulling extremely low ratings last season. Rumor has it that VH1 has opted to cancel Basketball Wives LA. The LA franchise only survived for two seasons.
