Season 5 of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” is only a few months away (premiering June 2 at 8 p.m. ET) and, if this first promo is any indication, the family drama is only growing.

The trailer, released on Friday (April 19) by Bravo, finds Garden State beauties Melissa Gorga, Jacqueline Laurita and Kathy Wakile pretending to plant a tree and watch it grow, before Teresa Giudice can carve her and husband Joe’s initials into the full-grown plant while no-nonsense Caroline Manzo looks on disapprovingly.

“Family is a force of nature,” the tagline reads, while a bolt of lightning strikes the tree, spitting it in half.

The trailer marks the second series in the franchise to receive a big-budget trailer for a new season, something the network began with Season 3 of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” last fall.

Be sure to watch the full trailer above. Is it June yet?
