Shahs of Sunset season 2 has officially been announced and Bravo has released the cast. Sammy Younai is out and Lilly Ghalichi is in! Promising plenty of drama and lots of challenges for its Persian princes and princesses, the cast will deal with struggles both between themselves and in their personal lives.
This season Reza Farahan will face a full-on "gaylife crisis" while MJ Javid decides to finally pursue a committed relationship. Mike Shouhed finds the girl of his dream, but there's one snafu – she's not Jewish! Asa Soltan Rahmati's dream of becoming a Persian pop princess is threatened by a financial crisis.
GG Gharachedaghi decides it's finally time for her earn a living so she starts a business with her sister. Unfortunately her anger management issues cause major problems. And new girl Lilly seems to have it all on the surface – but balancing her business and her personal life are proving to be more difficult than it looks!
No word on whether last seasons dramaful extra Anita Gohari will be returning, but I hope so. I'm surprised she wasn't promoted to a full-season cast member. I'm also surprised they haven't brought on an extra guy to replace Sammy!
Below are the official cast photos – and the trailer for season 2!
Shahs of Sunset premieres Dec 2 at 10/9c on Bravo!
