The drama is about to get global, because Real Housewives is getting its first *official* international season very soon. The reality franchise has had quite a few installments set in cities across the world before, but its tentpole series have been exclusively based in the United States... until now. Andy Cohen revealed The Real Housewives of Dubai will be Bravo’s first original international edition of the franchise, and its premiere date is quickly approaching.

Cohen made the big announcement on The Today Show on Monday, Nov. 1. "Get your passports, our 11th city! We are going to the billionaire's playground, the city of gold, the desert oasis — The Real Housewives of Dubai,” the showrunner revealed. As Cohen noted, the new series marks the main franchise’s eleventh city, debuting over 15 years after The Real Housewives of Orange County kicked the reality juggernaut off back in 2006.

For those superfans confused as to why Dubai is being marketed as the first official international Real Housewives series, it all comes down to Cohen and Bravo’s involvement. The reality show has spawned multiple international iterations already, most notably The Real Housewives of Melbourne and The Real Housewives of Cheshire, but The Real Housewives of Dubai will air exclusively on Bravo alongside the U.S. seasons and will likely feature a reunion show hosted by Cohen, unlike the other international installments.

Here’s everything else to know:
