Fanatic Feed: NBC’s The Wheel Premiere Date, RHOA Spinoff Canceled, & More!
Here is a wrap-up of all the news you need to know from Monday, November 21, 2022.
Bravo has canceled its Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff Kandi & the Gang after a single season.
The series followed RHOA mainstay, Kandi Burruss, as she managed her Old Lady Gang restaurant.
While the ratings were soft, there was a glimmer of hope that it would get another chance on the cable network.
In an Amazon Live broadcast, Burruss revealed over the weekend that the show had been canceled.
“Definitely, it is not returning,” the Grammy Award winning artist shared.
“Bravo is not bringing it back. So sad and I am super upset about it.”
Burruss will continue on RHOA for its 15th season, and has various other projects in the works.
“I have been in so many arguments, since the summer, since we were filming the Xscape show all the way now filming Housewives,” she on the Amazon broadcast.
“I feel like I have argued with everybody. Like, almost had some crazy blowouts with some people.”
Meanwhile, NBC has announced it will round out the year with a two-week takeover of the UK’s game show The Wheel.
The all-new U.S. version showcases a colossal spinning wheel of celebrity guests who help everyday contestants win life-changing money.
The takeover begins Monday, Dec. 19 with new episodes airing nightly at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and continues the following week with new episodes airing at 8 p.m.
The series features suspenseful high-stakes trivia, laugh-out-loud moments and more than 50 all-star guests seated on a spectacular 42-foot-wide spinning wheel.
Meanwhile, Amazon Prime Video has announced a return to Middle Earth with The Making of the Rings of Power.
