Consider this an official petition to change the state of New Jersey’s nickname from “The Garden State” to “The Most Dramatic State,” because if the past 11 seasons have taught us anything, it’s that Bravo’s “Real Housewives of New Jersey” knows how to bring the drama. That’s right: We’re 11 seasons into one of the most epic “Real Housewives” franchises to ever exist. For more than a decade, audiences have watched family secrets come out into the open, long-held grudges devolve into tables flipping and punches thrown, screaming matches unfurl at fashion shows and cookouts, and serious legal battles plague the lives of at least one prominent family. The drama at the heart of “RHONJ” is not for the faint of heart, but it is some of the compelling television to exist in the “Real Housewives” world.

The drama was especially potent during Season 11. The “RHONJ” cast had to muster through a summer marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, thus forcing them to take trips close to home and keep their social circles small to stay safe. In some ways, this was good because it meant more reasons to keep the core “Real Housewives” cast — Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Jennifer Aydin, Margaret Josephs, Jackie Goldschneider, and Dolores Catania — together in the same room. It also meant that when dust-ups happened between the cast, with Giudice primarily acting as the instigator and facing off against Goldschneider and Gorga in separate but memorable skirmishes, those intense feelings would take a lot longer to dissipate.

What is the Real Housewives of New Jersey Season 12 release date?

The established premiere window for “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has shifted over the years. New seasons used to debut in the spring or early summer, before eventually slipping to fall, and now it appears that February is the new designated release month for the series. Season 11 premiered back on February 17, 2021, and according to Bravo, Season 12 is set to begin on February 1, 2022.

This would all seem to align with an item that appeared in Us Weekly back in June, which claimed via an unnamed source that “RHONJ” Season 12 had begun filming in the summer of 2021. In addition to having the same release month, Season 12 will be focusing on the events of Summer 2021, much like Season 11 focused on Summer 2020 events. That should be the perfect thing to keep fans warm when “RHONJ” Season 12 debuts on February 1.
