You'll never guess where The Real Housewives is headed next! No, really, you definitely won't. Bravo just announced two new additions to the franchise: Dallas and Potomac, Maryland.

The Real Housewives of Potomac will debut on Sunday, Jan. 17 at 9 p.m. on the network, while Dallas will premiere later in 2016.

"The Real Housewives of Potomac is the show you never saw coming, and it's going to take everyone by surprise," Housewives mastermind Andy Cohen said in a statement announcing the new season. "As for The Real Housewives of Dallas, it's a natural extension of the franchise with a Southern twist that 'ya'll' will enjoy."

E! News confirmed last week that Dallas would be joining the Real Housewives family. Bravo had previously announced a new series called Ladies of Dallas, which instead has become an official Real Housewives city instead. When Cohen stopped by the Sirius XM show Reality Checked With Amy Phillips, he teased that there could be a new city "sooner than you think." And now we have two!

While Dallas promises to look inside the world of Southern socialites climbing to the top of the Lone Star scene (galas, scandals, and massive egos included), Potomac will explore a hidden gem of a region just up the river from Washington, DC.

Potomac will follow six wealthy, mainly African-American families living in the area full of rolling hills, gated mansions, prep schools and country clubs, breaking racial barriers to give their children the best lives possible. The six cast members include Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Robyn Dixon and Ashley Darby.

Bravo introduced The Real Housewives of D.C. in 2010, but the show was canceled after just one season.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)
