Bravo Renews Real Housewives of Orange County

Real Housewives of Orange CountyBravo has decided to renew The Real Housewives of Orange County for a second season, set to premiere in 2006. The reality show focuses on the day-to-day lives of a group of wealthy Southern Californian women, in what has been called a real-life “Desperate Housewives” (or as I like to think of it, “Laguna Beach” for grownups).

Although the show was not an overwhelming ratings topper, it was relatively successful for Bravo, as a basic cable network. Oddly enough the median age of viewers was 34 (meaning that half of the show’s viewers were over 34, and half were under 34). That makes it Bravo’s “youngest” show of the schedule, which is a big deal considering it is about housewives.

Hopefully the second season will have the same success, despite a change in producers. Instead of Kaufman Films and Dunlop Entertainment - headed by creator Scott Dunlop - this season will be produced by Evolution Film & Tape.

The second season will focus on the original women - in addition to some new faces - as it picks up where the first season ended.
