The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City isn’t slowing down without Jen Shah. The hit series aired its Season 3 finale on Jan. 11, and a two-part reunion premiered two weeks later. Though Jen reported to prison on Feb. 17, the show is not in jeopardy, and the ladies of Salt Lake City are staying put on Bravo.

While Bravo usually doesn’t announce their series’ renewals until a new season has wrapped filming, executive producer Andy Cohen confirmed early on that RHOSLC Season 4 was in the works, even as the mystery behind Heather Gay’s black eye remained unsolved. The network officially confirmed the news on Aug. 11 while also revealing the Season 4 trailer and premiere date. “The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City returns with frigid family dynamics, red hot international travel and a shocking betrayal that none of the women saw coming,” Bravo teased in a press release.

Here’s everything you need to know about RHOSLC Season 4, including which familiar face is making a comeback.

The RHOSLC Season 4 Cast

Returning full-time Season 4 cast members include Lisa Barlow, Heather Gay, Meredith Marks and Whitney Rose, and Season 3 “friend” Angie Katsanevas, who now holds a snowflake. The ladies are joined by RHOSLC’s newest Housewife, Monica Garcia, along with OG star Mary Cosby, who’s making a comeback “with her unique unfiltered opinions” in a “friend” role, after a one-season absence.

Season 3 newcomer Danna Bui-Negrete will not return for Season 4, and Angie Harrington already previously announced that she is leaving RHOSLC. The reason, as she shared in a May 10 People interview, was that her 4-year-old son Hart received an autism diagnosis last fall. “I was offered to come back but this is just a time when my family really needs me, and I wasn’t able to commit to it,” Harrington explained, adding that Gay and Marks were “extremely supportive” of her decision.

The RHOSLC Season 4 Premiere Date

RHOSLC Season 4 premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Bravo, with episodes dropping on Peacock the following day.

The RHOSLC Season 4 Trailer & Storylines

Bravo dropped a first look at Season 4 on Aug. 11, while also previewing all the explosive drama fans can expect from each of the women:

• After an icy season, Lisa Barlow is making amends with Meredith, one of her oldest friends, but they still have a long way to go. Lisa is forced to evaluate her new-wave Mormon lifestyle when her oldest son, Jack, is ready to leave the nest to find his place in the Mormon church and starts exploring the traditional elements of the religion. While Lisa enjoys the finer things in life, her luxuries and expensive taste rub some of the women the wrong way, leading to a confrontation with newest housewife Monica.
Monica Garcia is introduced to the group through her friend Angie, but the women quickly realize they recognize her through another familiar face. An excommunicated ex-Mormon, Monica is raising her four children on her own and running her baby products business. To add to her plate, she’s also dealing with divorcing her husband for the second time and navigating a volatile relationship with her mother. Blunt, opinionated and never afraid to speak her mind, Monica has no problem saying what she’s thinking, even if it lands her in hot water with the other women.
• Thriving after the success of her book, Heather Gay earned a spot on the New York Times bestseller’s list and bought a new house for her family. After publicly denouncing the Mormon church, her daughters are struggling with the fallout in the Salt Lake City community. Heather and Lisa finally find some common ground and “Bad Weather” makes strides to rebuild their trust in one another, but their relationship is far from fully repaired.

• From friend to housewife, Angie Katsanevas owns and operates multiple hair salons around Salt Lake City with her husband, Shawn. When rumors begin to swirl about their marriage, Angie looks to find the culprit before the hearsay can do any damage to their family. Lisa loyally stands by her side as Angie navigates the group’s tumultuous and ever-changing dynamics.
Meredith Marks continues to expand her successful jewelry line and donate her time toward charitable causes close to her heart. At home, the kids are thriving and her marriage with Seth is stronger than ever as the pair start a podcast to share advice and anecdotes. Tensions with the women explode when Meredith is accused of dropping bombshells without getting her hands dirty ... yet again.
Whitney Rose focuses her energy on launching a new luxury jewelry line that highlights spirituality and healing. As Justin heads back to work and Whitney dives into the launch of her new brand, the couple struggles to find a balance between life as CEOs and caretakers for their children. Whitney and Heather work on forgiveness and trust, but her relationship with Meredith strays beyond repair after an accusation that rubs Meredith the wrong way.

• After a year away from the women, Mary Cosby is back with her unique unfiltered opinions. Her friendship with Meredith is as strong as ever, but she struggles to find her footing with the other ladies as she navigates old wounds and potential new friendships within the group.

Page Six reported on May 8 that Whitney and Lisa will feud during Season 4, too. Ahead of a cast trip to Bermuda, which was slated to kick off on May 13, producers were reportedly “preparing for an explosive situation” between the two, a source claimed.

Will Jen Shah Be On RHOSLC Season 4?

On Jan. 6, Jen was sentenced to 78 months in prison after pleading guilty to charges of wire fraud in July 2022. Interestingly, during her sentencing, Jen’s lawyer claimed that she was still employed by Bravo, despite Andy’s claim in October that the network essentially cut off communication with her after the guilty plea.

Reacting to Jen’s sentencing a few days later on his SiriusXM radio show, Andy set the record straight concerning her future on RHOSLC. “I'm like, ‘Do you understand that this woman is being sentenced to jail on January 6th?’” he explained. “They're not gonna give her no time. So you tell me, is she on the show? Like, what do you want me to say about whether she's on the show? She's going to serve her time. I don't understand what people want me to say…. It seems like the judge figured it out for us, didn't he?”

And did leave the door open for a sit-down interview with Jen. “I'm hoping to go talk to Jen this weekend,” he said “I'm hopeful that I can do that sit-down with her in front of some cameras and deliver that to you.” However, Jen backed out of the interview as plans were being made, saying Bravo wouldn’t agree to her contractual requests.

While fans should not expect to see Jen as a Housewife again, filming for Season 4 reportedly began on Feb. 13, just four days before she reported to prison. This means Jen could make a brief appearance on the season premiere, or at the very least, her former co-stars may react to her departure in real time. There is also a possibility that her RHOSLC castmates could check in with her over the phone or perhaps even travel to see Jen in prison — or as Whitney mistakenly said during Season 3, make a “conjugal visit.”
