EXCLUSIVE: Basketball Wives: Orlando Allegedly Canceled After 1 Season

theJasmineBrand exclusively reports that Basketball Wives: Orlando, a spin-off of the popular franchise created by Shaunie Henderson, is allegedly facing cancellation after its inaugural season.

The show, which featured nine women navigating relationships with NBA stars while living in Florida, premiered to solid ratings with its debut episode attracting 307,000 (live/same day) viewers.

However, viewership declined throughout the season, with the finale drawing in 196,000 (live/same day) viewers.

Starring Ashley Snell, Danielle Miller, Lyndzie Marble, Mackenzie Hyatt, Mehgan James, Morgan Bledsoe, Mulan Hernandez, Nikki Nicole, and Nique Brown, the series aimed to capture the drama, friendships, and financial ups and downs of its cast members.

On social media, cast members have been notably quiet about the show’s future. However, Mehgan James recently reposted a tweet from a follower on X (formerly Twitter) who expressed hope that the fan-favorite would return to the original Basketball Wives.


The original Basketball Wives, featuring Evelyn Lozada, Jennifer Williams, and Brandi Maxiell, returns to VH1 on July 1st.
