The new season of Basketball Wives will be airing on TV screens soon after taking more than a year off. Premiering next month, the ninth season will feature a few old faces and introduce a few new faces.
This season, fans will get to see favorites Shaunie O’Neal, Malaysia Pargo, Evelyn Lozada, Jackie Christie, Jennifer Williams, Kristen Scott, Ogom “OG” Chijindu, and Feby Torres. Throughout the season, fans will get to meet newcomers — Lamar Odom‘s ex and babies’ mama, Liza Morales, and entrepreneurial sisters, Nia and Noria Dorsey.
The women will be faced with the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic and social injustices while trying to navigate through unresolved relationships. Housed in one mansion, the ladies will reveal that a lot of changes are in the works.
Shaunie moves to Houston, Texas to be closer to her kids, Evelyn is preparing to move into a new home, and Malaysia gears up to educate her kids on police brutality and the law.
Black Lives Matter and systemic racism will be big discussions throughout the season, zooming in on The Scotts‘ work and involvement with the movement.
Drama within the ladies’ lives and between each other is still on the rise; And of course, with new faces, come new drama. Both Shaunie and Jackie attempt to bring the women together, but with OG‘s return and the newcomers, the sisterhood is on the line.
