The early renewal announcement is little surprise given the show's strong ratings. Last month's special 90-minute premiere of the fourth season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey averaged 2.02 million viewers between the ages of 18 and 49 -- the highest-ratest season premiere of any show in the network's history among the Adults 18-49 demographic.
In addition, it also racked in the highest-rated season premiere in The Real Housewives franchise history amongst total viewers with 2.87 million total viewers.
According to Bravo, Sunday's episode of The Real Housewives of New Jersey will feature Laurita ignoring her daughter Ashley's request to get a new car, Wakile revealing a near-death experience in the family to her children, and Giudice receiving an unexpected phone call that will lead her to meeting up with her estranged brother.
