Your First Look at The Real Housewives of Orange County Season 16

The Season of Getting is upon us. Bravo fans will be gifted juicy first looks at upcoming episodes, all-new After Shows, exciting show announcements, and more. Stay tuned!

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

The upcoming new season of The Real Housewives of Orange County just may prove to be the show's most dramatic to date, thanks to the return of a familiar face as well as two new additions to the group. Season 16 hits airwaves this December — and we have your first look at the wild times set to go down between the women filled with tears, shade-throwing, shocking twists, goofy moments, a Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants reference, and oh so much more.

Shannon Storms Beador, Emily Simpson, Gina Kirschenheiter, and Heather Dubrow (making her return to RHOC after a five-year hiatus!) are back for the new season and will be joined by two new Housewives: Dr. Jen Armstrong and Noella Bergener.

The cast will form new bonds, even as tensions rise within their friendships and in their personal lives. Still, there will be laughs as well. Case in point: the relatable moment in which Emily decides to eat a sandwich in a sauna during a detox. "Yeah, is that wrong?" she wonders, before sharing, "It's turkey."

Get your turkey sandwiches prepped, and get ready to pop the champs very soon as Season 16 premieres on Bravo with a supersized premiere on Wednesday, December 1 at 9/8c. Check out the full trailer, above.
