The Real Housewives of Dallas will not be returning for a sixth season at this point.

The Texas-based iteration of the Housewives franchise had been recasting following a backlash to its most recent season, but US channel Bravo has pulled the plug on filming.

A spokesperson for Bravo confirmed to Entertainment Tonight that there are no plans to move forward with another season.

"There are currently no plans to bring The Real Housewives of Dallas back next year, and beyond that nothing official has been decided," a network spokesperson said.

RHOD viewers have often worried the show could be on the bubble between seasons because it has never attracted high viewership.

The show has also faced back-to-back race scandals in recent seasons, after original cast member LeeAnne Locken was dropped after a backlash to comments about Mexican-American co-star Kary Brittingham.

This past season saw a toxic online response among some viewers to a feud between cast members Kameron Westcott and Dr Tiffany Moon.

Bravo and parent company NBC Universal ultimately released a statement supporting Moon when she received a wave of abuse, particularly after one of Westcott's relatives wrongly suggested "anti-racism" was a form of racism.

"Bravo strongly supports the Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community," the network said. "Anti-racism is, in fact not a form of racism and the network stands by Dr Tiffany Moon and her advocacy against racism and violence."

Bravo originally premiered The Real Housewives of Dallas in 2016, and it was the ninth instalment of the Real Housewives franchise in the US.

All seasons and every episode of The Real Housewives of Dallas are available to stream and download in the UK and Ireland on hayu and hayu on NOWTV.
