Take two! Larsa Pippen is reportedly returning to The Real Housewives of Miami.

The 46-year-old is filming the RHOM reboot, which is in development at Peacock, a representative for Pippen told PEOPLE.

Pippen starred in the original series with Joanna Krupa, Alexia Echevarria, Marysol Patton, Lea Black, Adriana de Moura, Cristy Rice, Lisa Hochstein, Ana Quincoces and Karent Sierra. Patton's mom and RHOM star Elsa Patton, also known as "Mama Elsa," passed away in 2019.

The show ran from 2010 until 2013 with only three seasons while Larsa only appeared in the first season in seven episodes, the Daily Mail noted.

The reboot was first announced in February and Andy Cohen will be the executive producer. "I have really been trying to get Peacock to pick up Miami," Cohen said in November on "Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino."

"I don’t know if I’m allowed to say this. I don’t know where we are with that," Cohen said at the time. "The problem with the third season was that the ratings were declining as it went on and they went down for the reunion, which is usually the opposite of what happens."

Cohen said he thought the ratings impacted the decision not to pick RHOM back up but that fans want a fourth season.

Pippen and Hochstein were recently spotted in Miami, with Jennifer Lopez’s ex-fling, Casper Smart, according to Radar Online.

This time, a more diverse cast is wanted, sources said. "They have started interviewing a bunch of different women," a source told Us Weekly, who added that they are "speaking to women from all different backgrounds."

The source explained that a few potential cast members had been interviewed "several times" already and the network is getting "very close to narrowing down a cast."

Shortly after the announcement, Black appeared on Jeff Lewis Live where she debunked rumors that she declined to return. "I haven't told anyone that I am interested or not interested," she explained. "I haven't commented to anybody."

"They are trying to get a cast together," Black added. "I haven't said anything to anybody because it's not my place."

In 2019, Patton, hinted that she would be open to another season. "You never know," she responded to a fan who asked about the possibilty after the network had aired a marathon.

Hochstein previously told a fan that a new season is "very possible" with de Moura telling another that "if the stars would align" they would come back.

The reboot comes as Pippen and Malik Beasley's fling came to an end. Beasley "was going through a lot and the timing wasn’t right" for their relationship to work, a source said of the split. While they seemed almost inseparable insiders said "many people assumed" their relationship "was serious when in fact it was not."
