With the demise of the WB network, the five year home of the REBA sitcom, McEntire and cast expected television production to halt. However, the newly formed CW ordered 13 new episodes of the series for the fall 2006/spring 2007 season. REBA returns to production in Los Angeles on August 9th.
McEntire signed an exclusive concert engagement for 2006 with the Las Vegas Hilton for 28 dates in May, June, July, and August. Her "Key to the Heart" Habitat for Humanity Concert Series sponsored by Whirlpool will now conclude July 30. Fans can contact the Las Vegas HIlton at 800-222-5361 for refunds if they purchased tickets for these dates.
