Bravo’s “Shahs of Sunset” Canceled After 9 Seasons

The Sun Has Set On Bravo's _Shahs of Sunset_

It's the second Iranian-themed reality program to air, after E!'s “Love Is in the Heir” in 2004.

“Shahs of Sunset,” which depicts the lives of Persian-American friends in Los Angeles, was never officially renewed when season nine concluded in August 2021, and is currently on “indefinite pause.”

Production insiders told TMZ that the Bravo program simply run its course after its premiere in March 2012, and the decision to cancel it was made. The announcement also comes three days after news broke that Mike Shouhed had been detained and charged with a crime.

The reality star was detained for “intimate partner violence with injury.” According to records from the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department acquired by Page Six, Shouhed was apprehended on March 27 and charged the next day. He was freed after paying his $50,000 bail and was given a court appearance on July 25.

His condition, however, has nothing to do with the show’s cancellation, according to a source. Rather, the series’ conclusion has been discussed for some time. “And there was little chance that Mike would return if there was a new season anyway,” a second insider added.

Asa Soltan Rahmati, Destiney Rose, Lilly Ghalichi, Nema Vand, and Asifa Mirza are among the show’s other stars. They’re all in early conversations with the network about possible future programs.

Bravo is also working on a new project with several of the original cast members, including Reza Farahan, Mercedes “MJ” Javid, and Golnesa “GG” Gharachedaghi, as per multiple sources.
