Netflix has decided to cancel both Bling Empire and its first and only spinoff, Bling Empire New York, according to breaking reports.
The streamer is not moving forward with Season 4 of the Los Angeles-based original and a potential Season 2 of Dorthy Wang’s New York spinoff will not happen either, reports Deadline.
The series, which was originally billed as the unscripted version of the hit movie Crazy Rich Asians, followed a group of well-connected socialites in the Los Angeles area as they navigated wealth, family, and friendship and seemed to have a decent following, at least according to social media.
Some of the cast members included Christine Chiu, Kane Lim, Kelly Mi Li, Kevin Kreider, Gabriel Chu, Anna Shay, Cherie Chan, Jessey Lee, Kim Lee, Andrew Gray, Jamie Xie and Guy Tang, with former RichKids of Beverly Hills star Dorothy Wang joining in Season 2 before bringing the franchise to New York city late last year.
Tina Leung, Deborah Hung and Stephen Hung were some of the notable names who joined Wang in NYC.
The Netflix reality series boasted a few breakouts including Christine Chiu, who has been floated as a potential cast member for Bravo’s Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The series is produced by Jeff Jenkins Productions with Jenkins, Russell Jay-Staglik, Elise Chung, Lenid Rolov, Ross Weintraub, and Reinout Oerlemans exec producing.
