Madison LeCroy, John Pringle, and Leva Bonaparte are new full-time cast members on Bravo’s Southern Charm, returning for Season 7 tonight.

When it comes to Season 7, Craig promises that viewers will be entertained while yes, getting used to an entirely new cast. “I think it is exciting in a way that, you know, it’s still Southern Charm how you guys know it, but it’s something new and different again, which I feel like every year somehow with our group of friends, just there’s something a little wild and crazy and different.”
