Bling Empire is a reality television show on Netflix that had a successful first season.
There is also good news because, before Chiu got publicity on DWTS, Netflix already renewed the show for a second season.
Here is everything we know so far about Bling Empire Season 2.
This article provides everything that is known about Bling Empire Season 2 and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s dig down into what is known so far.
Is there going to be a Season 2 of Bling Empire?
Netflix renewed Bling Empire for a second season back in March. The news came in a two-shot, as Netflix is bringing back two of its reality TV shows in both Bling Empire and Selling Sunset.
This makes sense, as it was highly recommended, sitting at 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.
“In my eyes, unscripted TV is one of the most broad and diverse categories of entertainment,” said Netflix VP Brandon Riegg. “There are competition shows to be named the best singer or the worst baker. There are dating shows to find the one, or $100,000. There are home design shows to spark inspiration (and even joy!). And there are programs that follow real people going about their real lives, among many others.”
It is the last of these shows, which Riegg calls a docusoap that encompasses shows like Bling Empire and Selling Sunset.
“These shows follow a person or group of people, like family, friends, or coworkers, going about their real, everyday lives. They can offer a fun, light-hearted escape, or inspire a juicy, heated debate,” he said.
“They can provide a glimpse into a world different from our own, or even show a new side of our own circles. And yes, they’re usually filled with more feuds, tears, and tense dinner parties than our regular lives.”
Release date latest: When does Bling Empire Season 2 come out?
The first season of Bling Empire premiered on January 15, 2021.
Since the renewal came in March, it is almost assured they have already been filming for season 2.
The worst thing that a show like this can do is to have too long between seasons, as the fans want to follow their favorite characters and not have long periods pass where they don’t know what happened.
Expect Bling Empire Season 2 to return early in 2022, possibly as soon as January.
We will update this article with the official news when Netflix reveals the official release date.
