Television networks have always sought the maximum profit, which does lead to some unfortunate cancellations from time to time that have us reeling for years. VH1 has seen numerous reality TV shows come and go – will the Basketball Wives franchise be the next to go?

The original Basketball Wives was quietly cancelled in 2013 after five seasons. However, it looks like VH1 may be keeping a hold of its spinoff, Basketball Wives LA, which has currently run four seasons.

The official press release from the television network confirms that the show was renewed.

VH1 is taking no timeouts with “Basketball Wives: LA.” The network announced the hit reality series is picked up for a fifth season.
 
The fourth season of “Basketball Wives: LA” has made VH1 the #1 cable network on average in the Sunday 9PM time period with Women 18-34.* In addition, the 9PM premiere episodes  have posted triple digit gains with the demo versus year ago levels* (+157%).
 
“Basketball Wives: LA” season four was explosive.  Draya Michele, Malaysia Pargo, Brandi Maxiell, and Jackie Christie returned to the court ready for drama.  And Queen Bee and Executive Producer, Shaunie O’Neal, joined the LA crew this season to try to keep the peace. Jackie brought in friend and basketball girlfriend, Mehgan James.  Also joining the clique was wife of player Eddy Curry and Malaysia’s friend, Patrice Curry, as well as Draya’s friend, fashion designer and ex- girlfriend of Tyreke Evens, Angel Brinks.  Between the new personalities, major life challenges, and old resentments, even Shaunie soon realized that the LA ladies are a very challenging group. When her old time East coast buddy, Tami Roman, joined the cast, the Basketball Wives: Miami / LA cast divide was set in stone.
