The Georgia Peaches are back! Bravo announced Wednesday, Oct. 1, its new cast for season 7 of its smash franchise, The Real Housewives of Atlanta.

After creating a stir on season six of the show, Porsha Williams is not returning in the upcoming season as a main cast member. Instead, she will have a recurring role on the series, which will chronicle her newly single life as she takes up a job as a gossip reporter.

Her opponent and sworn enemy Kenya Moore is returning with a leading storyline, along with four veteran Housewives, NeNe Leakes, Kandi Burruss, Phaedra Parks, and Cynthia Bailey. (As witnessed in the season six reunion of RHOA, Moore and Williams got into a vicious brawl, which resulted in Williams dragging Moore across the stage.)

The ladies will also welcome newcomer, media maven Claudia Jordan who is close pals with Moore. Another new face, Demetria McKinney, will also have a recurring role on the show like Williams.

Us Weekly exclusively revealed last month that the entire season six cast would be returning for RHOA's new season, along with newcomers Jordan and McKinney.

Season seven storylines previewed by Bravo include Atlanta's longest-running Housewife, Leakes, juggling her growing career as an actress and performer. The show will also follow Parks dealing with the aftermath of her husband Apollo Nida's incarceration, after he was sentenced to eight years in prison this past summer for fraud.

The new season premieres Sunday, Nov. 9, at 8 p.m. ET.
