The Real Housewives of Toronto will be airing on Slice in winter 2017, with the first season consisting of 10 episodes. The show will follow six housewives and will be an “intimate look at the luxurious lives of the city’s wealthiest women, from their extravagant day-to-day escapades in Toronto to grandiose getaways to their exclusive colossal cottages in Muskoka – Ontario's playground for the rich and famous.” It had been reported that filming for the first season began on July 18, 2016.
