It’s by no means an exaggeration to say that Vanderpump Rules season 11 may be the most highly anticipated return of a reality show in recent memory. After Scandoval blew up into a cultural phenomenon and culminated in a very explosive Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion, fans of the series have to wonder what can possibly happen next. 

One of the biggest questions coming out of that reunion was how the season 10 cast could unite to film future episodes. The last time they were seen on camera, Lala, James, Katie, Scheana and Ariana were all raging against Tom Sandoval and Raquel in light of the cheating scandal. Considering Tom Schwartz allowed his loyalty to Sandoval and his treatment of Katie to tank his own standing with the group, Schwartz was also on the outs with most of the cast. With all this being said, producers had quite the task of putting season 11 together. 

So what do we know about Vanderpump Rules season 11? Keep reading to find out.  

The Vanderpump Rules season 11 reunion

The Vanderpump Rules season 11 reunion continues, and Ariana gets into it with Sandoval and Lala. 

Part Three of the reunion airs on Tuesday, May 28, at 8 pm ET/PT on Bravo. Here is a synopsis of what's to come: 

"Ariana breaks her no contact rule with Sandoval, leaving both in tears; Scheana defends her actions and suggests her rift with Ariana started well before the summer; Katie blames Sandoval for the downfall of her relationship with Schwartz."

Vanderpump Rules season 11 cast

One person who has always been a go for a new season is Lisa Vanderpump. Not only is her surname literally the title of the show, but she is also an executive producer of Vanderpump Rules

As far as the rest of the season 10 cast, most of them are back for season 11. This includes Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval and James Kennedy. Additionally, it appears Vanderpump Rules vet, Jax Taylor, makes an appearance.

For those hoping to see all three parties of Scandoval on screen, that will not happen in season 11. Rachel opted not to film the show any longer. 

Vanderpump Rules season 11 premise

Here's what Bravo teased about what you can look forward to seeing this season on Vanderpump Rules

"As a mentor, ally and confidant to the group, Lisa Vanderpump is working to restore some peace between two feuding exes as she attempts to provide perspective. With the closing of West Hollywood mainstay PUMP, Lisa is refocusing her expertise on opening a new restaurant in Lake Tahoe and continuing her success with additional ventures in Las Vegas.   

"Ariana Madix’s life was turned upside down after a devastating breakup, but she’s determined to make the best of a difficult situation. Although she still shares a home with her ex, Ariana is moving on and dating a new long-distance boyfriend. While working to open the doors to her and Katie’s sandwich shop, Something About Her, Ariana is embracing the countless opportunities that have come her way – from a stint on Dancing with the Stars to a new cocktail book.

"Recently proclaimed #1 guy in the group, James Kennedy’s friendships within the circle are stronger than ever and his DJ career is booming. He bought a house in the Valley and is settling into suburban life with his girlfriend, Ally Lewber, along with their cat and a dog from James’ past.

"With more distance from her divorce, Katie Maloney is exploring life as a single woman and dating, even if her pursuits strike too close to home for her ex-husband, Tom. A previous indiscretion comes to light and threatens to upend her and Scheana’s renewed friendship as well as her cordial post-divorce relationship with Tom. With permit hold-ups and ongoing issues, Something About Her is a work in progress, and opening a restaurant is proving to be more challenging than anticipated.

"Lala Kent is still in the midst of a challenging custody battle, but being the best mom to Ocean remains her priority. Wanting to give her daughter a sibling, Lala explores fertility treatments and looks for a sperm donor as a single mother. She finds an unlikely connection with Tom Schwartz, forming a friendship that neither saw coming, but creating tension between her and the rest of the girls as her forgiveness for the Toms grows.

"Celebrating their one-year wedding anniversary, Scheana Shay and husband Brock Davies are struggling to connect as they leave the honeymoon stage and settle into their life with a toddler. Scheana works on new music as a way to express herself and cope with her postpartum OCD. She finds herself straddling the lines in the sand within the group as she navigates her relationships with her longtime friends, and feuding exes, Ariana and Tom.

"In the aftermath of a scandal that changed his romantic relationships, dynamics within the group and the success of his businesses, Tom Sandoval is working on bettering himself. In a fragile state, he focuses on repairing the foundations of his friendships. When he isn’t on the road touring with his band, Tom Sandoval and the Most Extras, he and Ariana live under the same roof ... locked in a stalemate for the house. 

"Tom Schwartz is mending a challenged friendship after taking the heat for his part in his best friend’s shocking deception. Embracing a new identity, Tom bleaches his hair, evades exclusivity with a friend-potentially-turned-girlfriend and winds up in a surprising love triangle with a new flame and his ex-wife."
