Thankfully, Bravo has finally announced that The Real Housewives of Atlanta will return for a fourth season on Sunday, November 6 at 10 p.m. ET — nearly a month later than expected.

We were first introduced to the lovely ladies of Atlanta on October 7, 2008, when the show premiered on Bravo. Ah, the memories. Lisa Wu-Hartwell and DeShawn Snow were still housewives, Sheree Whitfield was a newly single woman, Kim Zolciak had yet to discover her passion for singing and NeNe and Gregg Leakes were a happily married couple.

Fast-forward to July 30, 2009, the debut of the second season. DeShawn was out but music maven Kandi Burruss was in. Season 2 spawned Sheree’s infamous “Who gonna check me boo?” as well as her ill-fated fashion line, She by Sheree, while Kandi tried to piece her life back together after her fiancée was killed.

Season 3 graced our televisions on October 4, 2010, and while we were without Lisa, the ladies were joined by model Cynthia Bailey and pregnant lawyer Phaedra Parks. Perhaps the most memorable event of season 3 was the seemingly permanent demise of Kim and NeNe’s friendship.

We have no new cast members to look forward to this season, but if the promo is any indication, the ladies haven't forgotten how to bring the drama!
