The Real Housewives of Atlanta will soon return with new faces and a “new attitude.”

Bravo announced the season 16 cast on Tuesday, May 14. The list includes four new peach holders, but is missing season 15 cast member Shereé Whitfield.

Veteran peaches Kenya Moore and Drew Sidora are both returning, along with Porsha Williams — who in February said she’d be coming back as part of an overall talent deal with NBCUniversal Entertainment.

The ladies will be joined by RHOA alum Cynthia Bailey, who’s returning as a friend of the cast.

The show will also welcome four new peaches — restaurateur and Food Network star Kelli Ferrell; Angela Oakley, wife of NBA star Charles Oakley; plus Shamea Morton Mwangi and Brittany Eady, who previously appeared on the show as friends.

“This season brings a new attitude and fresh perspective as the journey continues for these triumphant housewives as they cultivate new friendships and flourish in their careers and social circles,” Bravo teased in a statement.

Kenya, who has been part of the cast since season 5, confirmed she’d be returning in April.

After Kandi Burruss announced her departure in February, Kenya is now the longest-running peach on the show.

Cynthia appeared on RHOA from seasons 3-13. Since her exit in 2021, she’s been busy working on her acting career with roles in the Lifetime movie Cruel Instruction, the BET+ movie Under His Influence, plus the Allblk series Terror Lake Drive and Starz drama BMF.

When Porsha announced her return three months ago, she was married to Simon Guobadia. The two are now embroiled in a messy divorce.

Drew has been on the show since season 13.

Fellow season 15 peaches Sanya Richards-Ross and Marlo Hampton announced their exits earlier this year, as previously reported.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is produced by Truly Original. Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Shanae Humphrey and Glenda Cox executive produce. Andy Cohen is also an executive producer, alongside Kate Murphy and Saleda Bryant.

Production begins this month on season 16, with the premiere set for 2025.
