The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is going to deliver an avalanche of drama when it returns for season 5. The fourth season of the hit Bravo series concludes on January 2 with an epic showdown between the women in Bermuda, followed by the three-part reunion that filmed in November 2022. It’s apparent that the issues between the cast weren’t completely settled at the reunion, which means the next season of the show is going to be very eventful, to say the least.
Below is everything we know so far about season 5 of RHOSLC.
RHOSLC Season 5 Premiere Date
Bravo has not officially announced when RHOSLC will return for season 5. The show typically films in late winter/early spring and begins airing in the early fall. So, fans are expecting season 5 to premiere in September 2024.

The cast for RHOSLC season 5 has yet to be confirmed. Season 4 featured returning stars Lisa Barlow, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks, Whitney Rose, and Angie Katsanevas, with newbie Monica Garcia joining the main cast, and Mary Cosby rejoining the show as a “Friend Of.” It was the first season of the show not to feature Jen Shah, who was sentenced to six and a half years in prison for her role in a telemarketing scheme. Jen is serving time at FPC Bryan in Texas until May 2028.
Since Mary wasn’t featured in most of the second half of season 4 and didn’t get invited to BravoCon, there’s been speculation that she’s leaving the show — again. Mary addressed her future with the franchise in an interview with E! News in December 2023.
“Yeah, maybe,” Mary said about returning as a full-time cast member for season 5. “Only because I feel like I’m here for Monica and if I need to be full cast to make sure she gets where she’s going, I’m here to support her.”
Is Monica Garcia Returning For RHOSLC Season 5?
Monica’s future on RHOSLC is very much up in the air right now. It’s clear that Monica is on bad terms with all of her cast members after they taped the season 4 reunion. She’s in an especially bad place with Heather and the two are involved in a lawsuit over a procedure that Monica underwent at Heather’s aesthetics spa, Beauty Lab + Laser.

In an interview with Variety in November 2023, Heather declared that she won’t film with Monica again amidst their drama. “I don’t think I ever will, ever. It’s pretty definitive for myself. I can’t speak for my other cast members but for me, it’s pretty clear,” Heather said.
In a later interview with Entertainment Tonight, Heather revealed what it would take for her to film with Monica again. “Right now, we’re not friends and I don’t see us becoming friends, and that’s what it would take,” she said. “It would take accountability, and honesty, and that’s why we’re not friends right now.”
