The show continued to focus on Stassi Jax, Kristen and Kristen through season 8, but news broke in June 2020 about the network cutting ties with Stassi & Kristen due to their past racially insensitive comments.
Production for season 9 Vanderpump Rules was subsequently suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic as Lisa’s restaurants, including SUR and TomTom, were closed.
“They haven’t canceled it, so there’s hope still. At least there’s not, like, anything definitive in that regard,” Katie told Entertainment TonightSeptember 2020 was a discussion about the future series. Kristen and Stassi mentioned that the show will be different if it continues. “I try to picture and think about it, and it’s so weird. It’s weird. Yes, it’s definitely gonna feel different and look different, but it’s not like they’re not a part of my life, you know? So, it’s gonna be weird to have this part of my life that was very much on the show not on the show anymore.”
A few months after Bravo announced the start of season 9, Lisa confirmed that the drama was already heating.
“You can tell they’ve been locked up for a year,” the SUR owner jokingly told Entertainment TonightIn June 2021. “Everybody’s got a point of view, and they’re willing to air it and vent it.”
The restaurateur also discussed how the show would look if there was a smaller cast.
“I think it’s more mature, the show, but there are people that really like to have their opinion and that’s not going to change,” she shared at the time. “And they’ve certainly got a lot of them. … I’m surprised, actually, how amazingly quick, fast-paced and intense we’re in and we’re only a third of the way through, so it’s good.”
