Most of us in Charleston saw it coming, but alas, Bravo announced on Wednesday morning that “Southern Charm” is coming back for a third season.

The announcement on the Bravo website included a sneak preview of the season, which the network said is poised to be “the bumpiest” one yet.

For starters, Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel are welcoming their second child, St. Julien, and trying to get a handle on the whole parenting thing while still publicly feuding.

Cameran Eubanks is also contemplating motherhood, which might be at odds with her real estate career, the announcement noted. Also: Craig Conover has a girlfriend, Whitney Sudler-Smith might actually leave Charleston (who has heard of such a thing?) and Shep Rose and Landon Clements are still good friends —but a “secret” might throw a wrench into that dynamic.

The reality series filmed in Charleston hits the airwaves again at 9 p.m. April 4.
