Teresa Giudice is home from prison – and soon enough, she’ll be back on Bravo!

The news that Giudice will return as a regular cast member on The Real Housewives of New Jersey was announced Monday on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show, Radio Andy.

Cohen said the reality show is in production right now and has been shooting since Giudice, 43, was released from prison on Dec. 23, after serving a nearly year-long sentence for fraud charges.

Also rejoining the cast are Jacqueline Laurita, 45, and Giudice’s sister-in-law Melissa Gorga, 36.

“You guys excited for me, @melissagorga @JacLaurita @Bravotv #RHONJ Season 7? I am!!” Giudice tweeted.

“I am very excited to be back,” Giudice told Bravo’s The Daily Dish blog. “For me, this season is all about letting go of the past and embracing the future. People are calling me Teresa 2.0.”

According to Bravo, the season will follow Giudice as she tries to “repair her relationships” with her brother Joe Gorga and his wife Melissa, while also preparing for her husband, Joe Giudice, to begin his own jail term in late March.

Meanwhile, Laurita is “hoping to fix the once-tight relationship she had with Teresa, while also focusing on her duties as a mom to her three kids, including her autistic son, Nicholas.”

The show’s upcoming season 7 will pick up nearly two years after season 6 wrapped in November 2014.

The premiere date for The Real Housewives of New Jersey season 7 has yet to be announced but is expected to air later this year.
