When will Southern Charm be charming us again?!
Southern Charm has not started filming for next season – yet. According to Radar Online, the show is delayed and not being filmed because producers are searching for a new cast. Sources said, “The producers of Southern Charm put the show on hold until they can find fresh faces. Filming usually starts in the fall but nothing is happening until January.”
The show currently stars Kathryn Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose, Patricia Altschul, Whitney Sudler–Smith, Austen Kroll, Craig Conover, Chelsea Meissner, Naomi Olindo and Eliza Limehouse.
According to insiders, “Without Thomas [Ravenel] they need the drama to come back.”
Thomas was fired from Southern Charm after multiple allegations of sexual assault and abuse. Kathryn still appeared on the show, with their kids, Kensie and Saint.
It was reported that producers allegedly still want to capture Thomas and Kathryn’s relationship and custody battle. Sources stated, “Southern Charm producers are desperate. They reached out to some of Thomas’ relatives about being on the next season. Thomas’ first cousin, Lee Ravenel, was approached to be on the show, but he declined.”
Thomas had filed a lawsuit to keep his children from being filmed on the show.
Insiders revealed, “They want stories about Thomas and his children from a family point of view. But this seemed like a stretch and people are saying no. None of the cast members are filming. The drama just wasn’t there last season and the show is in trouble.”
I hope that Southern Charm will resume filming soon!
