Get set for ‘Southern Charm’ season 2

The second season of Bravo’s “Southern Charm” starts March 16. Kathryn Dennis and Thomas Ravenel are among the stars of the reality show.

The Bravo network hopes to extend the charm of its Charleston-based reality show with a second season.

“Southern Charm,” the series that offered its viewers a chance to buzz like a fly into the tumultuous lives of a group of elite friends, starts up again at 10 p.m. March 16.

After a first season that celebrated the puerile impulses of its stars and garnered admiration and disdain in about equal measure, “Southern Charm” continues this year with new episodes about the adventures and interactions of Craig Conover, Kathryn Calhoun Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Thomas Ravenel, Shep Rose and Whitney Sudler-Smith — “more driven and ambitious than ever.”

Watch Thomas and Kathryn try to balance parenthood with a Senate campaign. Watch Shep buy a house and run a restaurant. Watch Whitney break into the restaurant and music trades and assist Tom with his campaign. Watch what Craig does with his newly acquired law degree and watch the newly married Cameran, a real estate agent.

And meet the just-divorced Landon Clements, a new addition to the group and a friend of Shep’s since college.

Southern Charm is produced by Haymaker Productions. Its executive producers are Aaron Rothman, Irad Eyal, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Brian Kestner, Jason Weinberg, Megan Estrada and Jessica Chesler.
