Bravo’s Southern Charm, which follows a group of friends in Charleston, South Carolina, has always been a strong performer in the ratings.
Season 8 premiered on June 23, 2022 and features an updated cast including Leva Bonaparte, Kathryn Dennis, Craig Conover, Shep Rose, Madison LeCroy, and Austen Kroll.
Leva, who joined the series for Season 7, is set to star in her own spinoff on the network later this year. Southern Charm: Leva Land will focus on the Season 6 newbie and the staff at Republic Garden & Lounge (one of her Charleston-based restaurants), à la Vanderpump Rules and Kandi & The Gang.
Check out the official description for Southern Charm, below:
Back for season eight are charmers Leva Bonaparte, Craig Conover, Kathryn Dennis, Austen Kroll, Madison LeCroy and Shep Rose. Naomie Olindo makes her return with familiar faces Venita Aspen and Taylor Ann Green. New to the season, though no strangers to the Charleston social scene, are Olivia Flowers, Marcie Hobbs and Chleb Ravenell.
New relationships blossom and old resentments boil over this season as these Southern socialites navigate shifting romantic entanglements, chaotic friendships, flourishing businesses and new parenthood. Charleston Grand Dame Patricia Altschul appears with her son Whitney Sudler-Smith, who wastes no time stirring up drama among the group while John Pringle joins in on the group’s antics as well.
