Bravo is kicking it up a notch for season 15 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

The cable network dropped the trailer for the new season on Thursday and it’s got everything — drama, insults, marital woes, and gossip about workplace violence.

Returning cast members include Kandi Burruss, Kenya Moore, Shereé Whitfield, Drew Sidora, Marlo Hampton, and Sanya Richards-Ross. Monyetta Shaw is also back this season as a friend. She’ll be joined by new friend Courtney Rhodes, described as an “entrepreneur who has built multimillion-dollar businesses.”

The trailer includes cameos by OG peaches Kim Zolciak-Biermann and Cynthia Bailey — with Kim joining the ladies for a meal and Cynthia making a grand entrance.

The ladies grill Kandi about a shooting at her Atlanta restaurant.

“We don’t know when we go to Old Lady Gang if we’re going to get biscuits or bullets,” Shereé says, throwing all kinds of shade.

The series is produced by Truly Original. Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Julie “Bob” Lombardi, Eric Fuller, and Tom Ciaccio executive produce. Lizzie Spratt, Morris Thorpe, and Nick Prescott are co-executive producers. Andy Cohen is also an executive producer.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta returns on Sunday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

Below are plot details from Bravo on the new season:

· Kandi’s sights are set on gaining EGOT status as a two-time Broadway producer, actress, singer, and now podcast host. With several business moves on the horizon, she’s trying to balance prioritizing family time with supporting her husband and business partner, Todd, in his journey to Hollywood as a filmmaker.

· Kenya is in full boss mode. The hair-care mogul is taking her business to the next level by opening her own hair salon. While Kenya is still having fun as she twirls her way back into the dating world, the one lingering issue is the finalizing of her divorce.

· Shereé is stepping into her greatness after suffering public humiliation when her last relationship didn’t go as planned. But she didn’t let that get in the way of giving love a second chance with the new man in her life, Martell Holt. However, as she faces an unexpected health issue, she will have to shift all her focus. Will there be enough Shereé to go around?

· Drew is taking her music career to new octaves by releasing her first album, pushing forward her acting and music careers simultaneously while also working through her relationship with her husband, Ralph. But they strike the wrong chord in their marriage, and their divorce announcement leaves everyone shaken.

· As Marlo continues to take on her role as “Munty,” she’s working with a life coach while raising teenagers who are ready for summer jobs and driving lessons. She also takes a dip in the dating pool while she looks for her next suitor – but not without the approval of her nephews.

· Returning for her sophomore season, Sanya has no plans to slow down and has her sights set on expanding her business and family. Sanya and husband Aaron still have a full house of nine, all with their own set of challenges. As Sanya navigates the great expectations for her family, business, and more of herself, is she running a marathon with no end in sight?

· Friend Monyetta is back in the mix playing matchmaker when she introduces Kenya to a new love interest.

· Courtney joins this season as a friend. She’s a successful brand marketing expert and jewelry designer in Atlanta who has been friends with Shereé for many years. Courtney realizes her strong ties to this group when she finds out her long-lost cousin is Drew’s husband, Ralph. However, with friendships on the brink, accusations causing a fuss, and divorce news that’s all too much, will these women be able to channel positive vibes?
