Season 1- On March 10, 2010, Bravo announced the series (then titled Miami Social Club) had been picked up, and was to be a restructuring of the failed 2009 series, Miami Social.

Bravo announced on February 3, 2011, that the series would premiere later that month and also announced that the fourth season premiere of The Real Housewives of New York City, originally scheduled for February 15, would be pushed back until April.

Season 2- The Real Housewives of Miami was renewed for a second season with season one housewives Larsa Pippen and Cristy Rice not returning. When Bravo officially green-lit the return of the series for a second season on, February 9, 2012, Alexia Echevarria was not featured. A few months before the second season filming began it was revealed that Alexia's son was involved in a car accident, and thus her role was reduced to recurring for the season. Four new full-time Housewives joined the cast: Lisa Hochstein, Joanna Krupa, Karent Sierra, and Ana Quincoces. On July 24, 2012, Bravo official announced that the second season of The Real Housewives of Miami would premiere on Thursday, September 13 at 9/8c.

Season 3 - A third season was confirmed in March 2013 when controversy started as the production company who produces the series, Purveyors of Pop, proposed the use of drones in order to film B-roll aerial shots for the third season. Marysol Patton furthered the confirmation that production had started for season three when on March 20, 2013, she posted a photo on social media of herself, Ana, Lisa, Adriana, and Alexia attending Miami Fashion Week. Bravo officially announced the third season renewal on April 2, 2013 "? although no cast changes, nor premiere date, were revealed. It was announced on June 24, 2013, that the third season would debut on August 12, 2013, with Lea Black, Adriana De Moura, Alexia Echevarria, Lisa Hochstein and Joanna Krupa as main housewives while Marysol Patton and Ana Quincoces demoted to recurring.
