If you’ve been waiting for another show to itch the scratch in your brain whilst simultaneously killing off one or two braincells, I’ve got some great news – we finally know when Selling Sunset Season Six is being released. But with light comes shade and sadly, three of our favourite girl-boss characters won’t be returning for Season Six.
However, that’s only the tip of the full-glam real estate iceberg so here’s everything we know about Selling Sunset Season Six.
Is There A Selling Sunset Season Six Trailer?
We don’t have a full on trailer just yet, BUT there is a date announcement that gives us some juicy details about the upcoming season.
The Season Six date announcement for the colourful reality show was released on Thursday night.
As usual, it gave us a cheeky taste of what we can expect in the upcoming season. You know, hotties strutting around multi-million dollar homes saying witty little lines and serving looks, that kinda thing.
Who Is Coming Back For Selling Sunset Season Six?
While I think it’s safe to assume that the bald-boss twins Jason and Brett Oppenheim will be returning to the show, the date announcement showed us who we can expect click-clacking through the halls of the Oppenheim group on Selling Sunset.
Of course, the series sweetheart and G-Flip’s missus Chrishell Stause will be returning to the show. Alongside other returning characters including Mary Fitzgerald, Amanza Smith, Heather El Moussa, Emma Hernan and Chelsea Lazkani.
And, in some great news for Aussie fans of the show, G Flip spilled to PEDESTRIAN. TV that they will be appearing in Season Six of Selling Sunset for a “minor cameo“.
Excuse me while I scream into my pillow for a sec.
Okay, I’m back.
There are also two newcomers, Bre Tiesi and Nicole Young. More on these two in a minute.
Is Christine Quinn Returning For Selling Sunset Season Six?
The big finale of season five left Christine’s future at the Oppenheim Group up in the air given nobody really knew if she’ll return to the office. Will she be fired for consistently stirring the pot? Will she go to another brokerage and try to snake clients from the Oppenheim Group?
Despite Christine telling Us Weekly that she’s “not going anywhere” back in May, it seems she actually is leaving Selling Sunset.
After season five, she left the Oppenheim Group and started her own real estate startup — RealOpen — with her husband Christian Dumontet. Yes, it’s absolutely a crypto-focused brokerage that allows people to buy and sell property with digital assets.
TMZ reported on Thursday that the designer harbinger of chaos has exited Selling Sunset and won’t feature on Seasons Six or Seven of the show.
Production sources said that the decision was made mutually between Christine, Netflix and the show’s production company.
Christine previously teased that the show might turn into more of a “battle of the brokerages” but it seems that might be off the table now.
“But we just have to get creative now because I don’t work for the Oppenheim Group,” she said.
“Maybe it’s a battle of the brokerages.”
And to put the final nail in the coffin, in the date announcement Mary says, “I don’t think I’ll really miss Christine so it’s probably for the best that she’s gone.”
Ooft. There you have it.
Ughhhh babe why do this to me and my heart?
So Who Else Is Not Coming Back For Selling Sunset Season Six?
The end of Season Five revealed that we would be saying goodbye to Maya Vander who left the group to open her own brokerage in Miami, and Vanessa Villela, who moved to the UK to live with her fiancé Nick Hardy.
But fans were shocked to see that Davina Potratz was not featured in the Season Six trailer.
There’s something fishy going on because her profile is still on the Oppenheim Group website, and Selling Sunset is mentioned in her Instagram bio. While there’s no word just yet, I’m sure we’ll hear some juicy tea in the near future.
Maya has confirmed that she won’t be returning to Selling Sunset for good.
She told Page Six in June last year that she didn’t extend her contract with the reality show and instead wants to focus on her life and family in Miami.
“I love the show, and it was great, but I’m excited to focus on the Miami real estate market,” she said.
“I want to focus on my family, and flying coast to coast is a lot. The show is great, and I love everyone, but looking forward to growing my business in South Florida.”
The news comes as Maya is grappling with the heartbreaking news of having a miscarriage just six months after the arrival of her stillborn son.
She posted about her experience on Instagram where she said she finds keeping busy is her best way to manage and process loss.
Who Are The Newcomers Bre Tiesi And Nicole Young?
According to PEOPLE, Bre Tiesi began her career in the entertainment industry as a model before starting her own YouTube channel. She transitioned into real estate right before the pandemic hit and she’s ready to bring the drama on Season Six of Selling Sunset.
“I’m a whole personality,” she told the publication. “For anyone that’s followed me, they know I’m a hate it or love it kind of gal. I’m definitely bringing my full personality. It’s gonna be a whole show, from fashion to drama.”
Bri recently gave birth to her first child, named Legendary Love, whom she shares with actor Nick Cannon.
And despite being an actual baby, the kid already has an Instagram page with 10.9k followers.
Wild, but okay. Moving on to Nicole.
Despite not appearing on the show, newcomer Nicole Young has been a member of the Oppenheim Group for yonks. According to Netflix, she’s been “the longest standing and top producing realtor at the brokerage with $100M in sales”.
With numbers that good, you might be wondering, why on earth hasn’t she been on the show sooner?
Well, in an interview with PEOPLE, she revealed that she was meant to be on the show from Season One.
“Originally I was part of the main cast,” she said.
“Honestly, at the time, I just got cold feet right before they were going to start filming. I just wasn’t ready to expose my entire life, and even more so, my clients and business — which I’m very protective of — to the entire world.”
Nicole’s addition to the show is an interesting one because while she might be new to us, she’s certainly not new to the gals. She’s been close friends to them all for years. In fact, eagle-eyed fans might have spotted her officiating Mary and Romain Bonnet‘s wedding.
While she hopes to bring a whole heap of real estate to the show for us to gawk at, I’m sure that if there is any long-standing tension simmering under the surface with Nicole and the rest of the office, it is sure to make it to our screens.
Is There Going To Be Another Season Of Selling Sunset?
Thank God, yes. Netflix announced on March 11 that new seasons of Selling Sunset are on the way.
Selling Sunset and Bling Empire have both been renewed for new seasons!

Chrishell elaborated further on just how much more Selling Sunset we’re gonna cop and apparently, two more seasons have been greenlit by the streaming giant. So not only are we getting a sixth season, we’re getting a seventh, too.

Netflix itself confirmed the show has been renewed for a sixth and seventh season on June 24. So many more opportunities to gawk at the truly ridiculous lives that impossibly rich people live.

When Is Selling Sunset Season Six Going To Air In Australia?
Start marking off the days in your calendars, because according to the teaser trailer, the official launch date of Selling Sunset Season Six is May 19.
Selling Sunset tends to air once a year — except for 2020 when we copped seasons two and three within months of each other. Fingers crossed they’ll toss us Season Seven early as a little treat for being so sweet.
What Will Season Six Be About?
The end of season five left quite a few things up in the air, so we can assume the next season will show how the chips fall for a bunch of the Selling Sunset cast.
Brett’s off to Orange County to manage the huge new Oppenheim Group offices south of Los Angeles — which we’ll see more of in the Selling OC spinoff that’s in the works.
In the reunion of season five, we learned that Chrishell has started dating our very own G Flip (!!!) after splitting with Jason. That reunion was filmed after season five was completed so I’m hoping season six gives us the full rundown of what happened between the pair.
You can catch up on (or rewatch again) all five seasons of Selling Sunset right now on Netflix in preparation for the show’s return sometime in the future.
