Insiders with direct knowledge scoffed at the idea Peacock was reviving the unsuccessful 2017 series that only lasted one season.
"This is not true," one source tells Radar.
The rumor mill began swirling after a tipster wrote into the popular celebrity site Deuxmoi claiming to have a friend in development. They claimed Peacock has been "currently working on a reboot of Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky."
According to the tipster, Jax and his Kentucky muffin wife were leaving Los Angeles behind and opting to "buy an old farmhouse in Brittany's hometown to restore."
They even alleged their former SUR boss, Lisa Vanderpump, was producing the reboot, adding that some of the Vanderpump Rules cast would make cameos.
"Jax has been told to keep it quiet but he's already dropping hints on IG live," the source said. "Should be officially announced within the next few weeks." But Radar has learned those rumors are bogus.
That doesn't mean fans didn't get excited. Jax and Brittany have been missing in action since welcoming their son, Cruz, in April, just four months after being fired from the Bravo show.
In the summer of 2020, Jax found himself on the network's chopping block. VPR viewers demanded Bravo fire the controversial star after they let go of OG cast members Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, as well as newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni.
Brittany was just collateral damage.
In December, the couple announced their departure from Vanderpump Rules with nearly identical send-offs.
"The last 8 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life," Jax wrote on Instagram. "Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules. We are excited to take this time to focus on our growing family and share with you our new endeavors."
He also thanked Bravo before teasing, "Stay tuned, We can’t wait to share what we have planned." While Jax and Brittany both claimed they had new projects on the back burner, they still haven't shared what those new opportunities were.
