Bling Empire swept onto our TV screens in early January as the perfect antidote to help banish our lockdown blues. The distinctly glamorous show, described as a real-life Crazy Rich Asians, is hugely addictive thanks to its absurdly wealthy and quite brilliant cast. So the big question is: what about a Bling Empire Season 2? Here's what we know so far:
Has Bling Empire Season 2 been confirmed by Netflix?
Not yet, but the cast members have been dropping lots of hints about the show's return which is obviously a very good sign. Case in point: On January 25 during a fan Q&A, Kelly Mi Li said she was hoping the show would start filming soon, which sounds a lot like it's been commissioned but the streaming giant is yet to publicly announce the news.
While producer Jeff Jenkins, who worked on Keeping Up With The Kardashians for 10 years, said there's no shortage of storylines when it comes to this cast. "We just celebrated 14 years of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. I would love to take this cast even further," he told Town&Country. "I mean, there's so much that has happened in their lives since season one was shot. There's just so much going on. God willing, viewers enjoy it and respond."
Who will star in Bling Empire Season 2?
Of course we're hoping the whole cast will be returning if a second season is commissioned. Aside from Kevin, the cast was all familiar with each other before filming started so it shouldn't take a lot to get them together again (pandemic permitting). Jenkins recently told Oprahmag that Kevin was introduced to the group by Kelly a year before the cameras started rolling. "That year gave Kevin this wonderful sandbox time of playing and getting to know everybody and getting to form his own opinions, his own attitudes, and his own friendships or rivalries," he said.
He added that Kevin and Kane became best friends within a week, and we're hoping both of them will be back because their dynamic is so central to the series.
Meanwhile, Anna Shay has reportedly said she'd love to do another series, while Christine is already teasing more drama, telling Oprahmag: "If you thought I dropped a big bomb in Season 1, then you have no idea."
What could happen in Bling Empire Season 2?
The first season was filmed in 2018/2019, so a lot will have gone down by the time they start filming again. Here are some potential plot lines *Season 1 spoilers*:
We find out if Andrew and Kelly are still together
Just when it looked like Andrew and Kelly were over for good, the final scene ends with Kelly turning up at his house. Could they still be together today?
Cherie and Jessey get married
Cherie made no secret of the fact she wanted to wed boyfriend Jessey, but he wasn't so keen. In the end, she took it into her own hands and proposed to him at their son's party.
Kevin and Kim start dating
Was it just me or did it look like Kim was going to tell Kevin she liked him at Jevon's party? Hmm.
Christine gets Anna back for the "yoga" session
We know these two are all about tit for tat, and this time it's Christine's turn to get Anna back after she invited her over for that "yoga" session.
