If you can’t get enough of Southern Charm, then you’re probably pumped for the premiere of the show’s first spin-off series Southern Charm Savannah. In fact, you will have the opportunity to get a double dose of the Southern drama since the new show is set to air right after the original on Monday nights.
Just like Southern Charm, Southern Charm Savannah revolves around a co-ed group of friends living in the South and trying to balance their personal and professional lives.

Southern Charm Savannah is set to premiere on Monday May 8 at 10 PM.
According an official Bravo press release, Southern Charm Savannah “will follow six lifelong friends as they set out to make their mark in this world, all while navigating their legacies, love lives, and personal relationships.” That’s a little vague, but the press release also shared some more details about what to expect from the stars of the new series.
The first cast member described in the post is Lyle Mackenzie, who is “a man on a mission who moved back to Savannah hoping to make an honest woman out of his high school sweetheart.” Well that sounds like a refreshing change of pace from the male reality TV stars who brag about being players.
Another guy in the cast is Louis Oswald, who “recently resigned from his corporate banking job to become a full-time entrepreneur.” Based on my many years as a Bravo viewer, it’s safe to expect a lot of self-promotion with his story lines.
Hannah Pearson is described as someone who “found love but learned quickly that in Savannah, ‘mama’s boy’ takes on a whole new meaning.” That last part about her man’s mother gives me hope for a Patricia Altschul 2.0.
There’s another cast member, Daniel Eichholz, who sounds like a cross between Thomas Ravenel and Shep Rose. He is described as a “business man by day and ladies’ man by night who was forced to grow up after a scandal nearly destroyed his family business.”
Cast member Catherine Cooper is “a modern Southern Belle on a quest for independence,” which is pretty vague, but I’m sure we will learn more about her as the show progresses. Then there’s Ashley Borders, “a fashionista who spent years traveling the world before realizing that there really is no place like home,” which reminds me of when Landon Clements joined the original.
I just want to know if Happy McCullough is another cast member’s given name or if that’s her nickname. Aside from the interesting name, Happy is “bucking old-school Southern traditions by marrying her Muslim boyfriend.”
And then there’s a guy that strikes me as this show’s Thomas – solely based on a one sentence description. His name is W. Nelson Lewis Jr. He is referred to as “a comeback kid” who “made headlines in Washington D.C. with his wild behavior.” I am intrigued.
