Andy Cohen shut down a new report that “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is rebooting its cast for Season 15.

The executive producer addressed a Radar Online story published Wednesday that claimed the Bravo reality show is getting a “total revamp” and only keeping Teresa Giudice, Dolores Catania and Rachel Fuda.

“There was a bunch of casting news about ‘Jersey’ that was reported today. None of it is true. No decisions have been made. We haven’t even had any serious conversations about next season,” Cohen told “Entertainment Tonight.”

The “Watch What Happens Live” host, 56, went on to reiterate that anything people hear about casting in the next “six months is fake, so don’t believe it.”

Cohen also explained that viewers “will understand” why showrunners decided to forgo a “traditional reunion” with the “divisive” Season 14 cast.

“The finale is epic, and it’s great, and I’m excited for everyone to see it, and we all came to the same understanding after watching it, so I don’t think it’ll be a big surprise,” he shared.

Page Six confirmed earlier this month that producers had informed the “RHONJ” women that a “traditional reunion wasn’t happening this season” due to several feuds among them.

An insider explained at the time that the cast –– Teresa Giudice, Melissa Gorga, Margaret Josephs, Dolores Catania, Jennifer Aydin, Rachel Fuda, Danielle Cabral and “friends of” Jenn Fessler and Jackie Goldschneider –– was told producers were looking at different ways to conclude the season.

The source also teased that the upcoming finale reached an all-time level of intensity during a group dinner.

Cohen later confirmed the reunion switch-up, saying producers were taking “time” to figure out how to end the season and move forward.

“Right now, we’re just kind of focusing on, ‘OK, well, if we’re not doing a conventional reunion, what are we doing and what is something different that we could do?’” he said on SiriusXM’s “Reality Checked.”

“Things take time, and we want to take a minute to figure things out. There’s no point in rushing into something just to rush into something,” Cohen added.
