Will 'Tour Group' Return For Season 2? Bravo's Adventurous Reality Series Has A Rocky History
Bravo doesn't usually go international, but Tour Group provided a chance to see the network's signature drama looked all around the world. But will Tour Group return for Season 2 next summer? While the series still has a lot of potential, the prognosis on this travel series returning is... mixed at best. Unfortunately, the show has had issues from the beginning. After just two weeks, the show was pulled in order to be re-edited, according to Starcasm. It wasn't cancelled, which is a good sign, and the entirety of Season 1 eventually aired, with the finale planned for June 29. But, in the meantime, Tour Group has yet to make a big splash with its first season, and only managed to net average ratings of .08 million per episode, according to a Bravo show watch site.
However, don't let those stats get you down, because Tour Group has not been renewed or cancelled just yet. And with two Below Deck series on the network, Bravo has formed a little tradition of airing vacation/adventure themed shows during the summer, and Tour Group fits perfectly into that category. If Tour Group returns, I'd expect it sometime in the late spring-early summer for that exact reason. But that's almost a full year away, which gives Bravo plenty of time to think about whether the series will fit into "Summer by Bravo" 2017. In the meantime, here's a few other Bravo series that you might love if you're a fan of Tour Group.
Below Deck Mediterranean
I don't know how you could have missed this series, as it premiered opposite Tour Group back in late April. But on the chance that you did, it's a great tour of the gorgeous coastline of Greece and the sights on the Mediterranean Sea and of this group's disfunction. Love, hate, and showing up late to work.
And the original Below Deck is also worth catching up on, if you happened to miss any of the three previous seasons. Unlike their Med counterparts, the original Below Deck cast manages to be experts in both drama and excellent yacht service.
Ladies Of London
Reportedly, the third season is filming right now, so this is a great time to catch up on the first two seasons of the show on Hulu. The show, with its mix of American and British cast, is a testament to the cultural differences and quirks of the two countries.
Shahs Of Sunset
The Shahs have also been on the move a lot this season. Probably their biggest trip was when the cast went to Turkey a few seasons ago, but this year, there was something I never thought I'd see: Shahs of Sunset camping! In the actual woods! With tents! Honestly, that's as thrilling as seeing the tourists on Tour Group hang off the side of a mountain.
Real Housewives Of Orange County
If you want to see a group of people who have an interesting travel style, check out the current season of RHOC. I could never get tired of seeing Vicki and Shannon attempt to paddle a boat or watching Heather attempt to keep her composure while monkeys run around.
Million Dollar Listing: New York
And as counter programming to all of the traveling, why not watch some people find their homes? The recently concluded season of Million Dollar Listing: New York had dozens of apartments and houses so luxurious and gorgeous that would make even the most dedicated world traveler long for a home base. During the wait to find out whether or not Tour Group is going to return next year for another season, there's plenty of Bravo series to catch up on.
