What to Expect in the Eighth Season?
You can expect a whole other set of drama and emotions in the upcoming season.
The women will face their fair share of ups and downs in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. We will also see some of them work on the frontlines to help with COVID-19 testing.
Dr. Jacqueline Walters says that she faced the most significant medical mission of her career during the peak of the COVID-19 outbreak.
However, the eighth season will not lack in any spectacles of the inner circle of the cast members.
The show will introduce a newcomer Anila Sajja. She is a good friend of Toya Bush-Harris and is the wife of Dr. Kiran Sajja. Kiran is a successful oculofacial plastic surgeon.
However, Anila spares no effort in letting the other cast members know that she not a mere wife of a doctor. We should expect her to create some problems with the other cast members.
Moreover, her relationship with her husband seems a bit edgy. While Anila claims to be looking to build her dream house, Kiran retorts by saying that her dream house is his nightmare.
The first look of the eighth season features the footage from the “Black Lives Matter” protests in Washington D.C., so this would be the main focus in one of the episodes.
But that’s not all. The show will also feature the tension and arguments between Dr. Contessa Metcalfe and her husband Dr. Scott Metcalfe.
Mariah Huq will not be in the eighth season after she sues the production for not giving her proper credits and treating her discriminately. She is the creator as well as the cast member of the series. Mariah filed the lawsuit against Bravo on 5 January 2021.
The show demoted Quad Webb to a friend role.
Meanwhile, the show will welcome the return of Lisa Nicole Cloud and Kari Wells. Booth will play their respective roles as friends.
