Several months before Netflix premiered Season 5 of Netflix’s Selling Sunset, Us Weekly reported that the streamer had already renewed the hit real estate-centric reality show for not one but two more seasons. As newly minted boss Mary Fitzgerald cryptically warned in Season 5, though, there isn’t enough desk space at The Oppenheim Group anymore — so somebody’s gotta go.
While the Season 5 finale left the futures of several Selling Sunset cast members in jeopardy, the Season 6 teaser seemingly reveals who made the cut. Below, everything we know about Selling Sunset Season 6.
The Selling Sunset Season 6 Release Date
Though Selling Sunset Season 5 wrapped filming in December, the cast was planning to take “a bit of a break” before heading back to work on Season 6, a source told Us Weekly in early 2022. In June, Netflix announced production would start that summer — leading to a Season 6 premiere date of May 19.
The Selling Sunset Season 6 Plot
Selling Sunset follows the lives of the glamorous team of real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group in Los Angeles. But it's not just luxury homes and high heels — the drama between agents at the brokerage and in their personal lives was and continues to be a major engine of the reality show’s plot.
While Season 4 of Selling Sunset focused on the conflict between Christine Quinn and newcomer Emma Hernan after it was revealed that the realtors had previously both dated the same man, Season 5 centered on Chrishell Stause’s relationship with boss Jason Oppenheim, which was confirmed in the summer of 2021. As the fifth season wrapped they had split, so it’s likely the new season will follow the aftermath of their December 2021 breakup, and how the two continue to work together while dating other people. In addition, new cast members will likely shake things up. Which brings us to...
The Selling Sunset Season 6 Cast
While the Season 5 cast included Mary Fitzgerald, Chrishell Stause, Christine Quinn, Brett and Jason Oppenheim, Amanza Smith, Heather Rae El Moussa (née Young), Davina Potratz, Maya Vander, Emma Hernan, Vanessa Villela, and Oppenheim Group newcomer Chelsea Lazkani, the Season 6 teaser introduces two newcomers — Nicole Young and Bre Tiesi — while Quinn, Villela, and Vander are notably absent.
Netflix previously announced that agents Young and Tiesi would be joining the cast for Seasons 6 and 7. Described as “the ‘O.G.’ of The Oppenheim Group,” Nicole is one of the brokerage’s top producing realtors “with $100M in sales,” according to a press release. Fans may have spotted her in earlier seasons, when she officiated Mary and Romain’s wedding. As for Bre, she was born and raised in Calabasas, is known for her consulting work in the luxury market, and boasts “a steady and devoted stream of clients who exclusively work with her.” She recently welcomed a son, Legendary Love, with boyfriend Nick Cannon in June. So, there’s a chance Cannon could make an appearance in the upcoming season too.
The two new cast additions come on the heels of Maya Vander’s decision to step back as a full-time cast member. Maya told E! in December 2021 that she wouldn’t return to filming full-time for Season 6. “I'm probably not going to be a full-time cast member because it's going to be difficult for me logistically to do the back-and-forth again, especially with a third child,” the realtor, who was pregnant at the time, explained. “Realistically speaking, I'm probably going to stay more focused on Miami, my family, and my business here, if we get renewed for another season.” After Season 5 filming wrapped, Vander revealed she lost her third child in a stillbirth at 38 weeks. She has also since opened her own Florida real estate company, The Maya Vander Group.
Vanessa, Chrishell, and Christine’s futures at The Oppenheim Group were also left up in the air at the end of Season 5. After revealing she’d been considering moving to London to live with her boyfriend, Vanessa’s final scene cryptically showed her wheeling luggage toward an airport’s international departures terminal. Meanwhile, after Emma alleged that Christine offered her client $5,000 to quit working with her, it seemed equally likely that Christine could either quit or be fired from The Oppenheim Group. Finally, Chrishell’s finale breakup with Jason also sowed doubt of whether she could continue working for her ex. But alas, in its April 20 press release, Netflix confirmed Chrishell would be back for Season 6. Neither Christine nor Vanessa were mentioned in the official cast lineup, however.
