Netflix’s hit series Bling Empire is just one of the many shows that have gotten us through endless lockdowns. Inspired by Kevin Kwan’s wildly successful book and film Crazy Rich Asians, it saw viewers being transported to sunny Los Angeles while we followed the lives of a real group of glamorous, beautiful and wealthy Asian Americans.
As Netflix’s description of the show puts so perfectly: ‘Bling Empire follows a wildly wealthy group of Asian and Asian American friends (and frenemies) in Los Angeles. While their days and nights are filled with fabulous parties and expensive shopping sprees, don’t let the glitz and glamour fool you. Between running multi-billion dollar businesses and traveling the world, these friends are as good at keeping secrets as they are at spilling them. And there is certainly no shortage of secrets.’
Now, fans have been given the news that they have been waiting for as Kevin, Kelly, Christine and the gang have confirmed that the show will be returning for a sophomore season. But will the entire cast be back?
Christine Chiu, one of the show’s favourites, certainly will be, as she teased to Oprahmag.com: ‘If you thought I dropped a big bomb in season 1, then you have no idea.’
Meanwhile, the show’s producer Jeff Jenkins revealed that the Kevin / Kelly / Drew love triangle from last season will continue into the next, despite the fact that we now know that Kelly and Drew have broken up (as per Instagram). As Jenkins told Oprahmag.com: ‘Kevin isn’t a fan of the Kelly/Drew relationship and would like to supplant Drew, but I don’t know if he’s ever going to succeed. God willing, we’ll get to continue telling the stories of these people and we’ll all find out because I’m just as interested as the next person to find out how it ends.’
Sadly, there is no release date as of yet, but rest assured it’ll be in 2021.
