The cast of the series was announced in May 2016. The reality show will follow Anne Batley-Burton, Michelle Blanchard, Gilda Kirkpatrick, Julia Sloane, Angela Stone and Louise Wallace. The first season is set to premiere on August 22, 2016. Executive producer of the series, Kylie Washington, has described the cast of the first season as “people who are the life of the party – the party is them – it’s around them, so it doesn’t matter where they are, something’s always happening.” Also reported on the series, “there has been more “explosive” drama than even Washington anticipated. “We’re pretty tongue in cheek with it as well. We know what we are, we’re not pretending to be anything else. Already [the Auckland Housewives] are showing that they have the right spirit,” said Washington. It is also reported that a season 2 looks likely.
