"Southern Charm," Charleston's polarizing reality show documenting the ups and downs of the haves and the, well, haves, has been renewed for a second season, the Bravo network announced Monday.
Bravo Media announced it has given the green light to three new series and two returning series, "Southern Charm" being one of the renewals.
The show's first season averaged close to 1.3 million viewers, with a high of 1.6 million viewers for the finale, according to Bravo Media.
Fans of Whitney Sudler-Smith's mother, Patricia Altschul, Shep Rose's Cheshire cat grin and Thomas Ravenel's escapades in and out of the political arena will get a chance to look back into the lives of the local, and not necessarily so local, rich and famous.
However, a Bravo spokesperson could not confirm which cast members would be returning for season two. Early this summer, Ravenel said on social media that he would not take part.
The former state treasurer is currently running an independent campaign to unseat U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham in November.
Entrepreneur and mama's boy Sudler-Smith is one of the show's producers, so it's anybody's guess if he and his socialite mother, Altschul, will return. Rose, sufferer of the "Peter Pan Syndrome" touted in the first season, has since opened up a restaurant in downtown Charleston, The Palace Hotel.
Other season one cast members include Craig Conover, a recent law-school graduate who hails from Delaware (not the South); fan favorite, real estate agent and recently married Cameran Eubanks; mohawk sporting, jet setter Jenna King; and Kathryn Dennis, descendant of John C. Calhoun and mother of Ravenel's new baby girl.
