'Vanderpump Rules' is poised to return for another season.

Showrunner Alex Baskin has dismissed speculation that the reality TV series won't return for a 12th season, after Tom Sandoval and Rachel Leviss' cheating scandal in 2023.

Speaking after the three-part reunion shows, Alex told The Hollywood Reporter: "Obviously there’s been a lot of speculation. People have written the show’s final chapter many times, and the show has continued. So just because it’s a reflective moment that clearly marks the end of one chapter does not necessarily mean that it is the end of the show."

Alex insisted that 'Vanderpump Rules' still has room to grow and develop.

He explained: "You see there is still a lot of fertile ground and developments in their lives, so I think it would be very premature that just because we really close the book on Scandoval in a lot of ways, because it was this moment that sort of blew up everything and that extended into the next season, does not mean necessarily that the show is over."

Meanwhile, Tom recently admitted that he wears his 2023 cheating scandal as a "badge of shame".

The reality star also apologised to Ariana Madix, his ex-girlfriend, for cheating on her with Rachel.

He said on the 'Vanderpump Rules' reunion episode: "I know you don't want to be around me. Whatever our relationship was the good, the bad - whatever you did, whatever I did - it doesn't matter. You didn't deserve that. And I'm really sorry, from the bottom of my heart."

Tom still has deep regrets about his months-long affair.

He said: "Ariana, I regret it every day. I wear it as a badge of shame. I did the thing that I said I would never do and I did it."
