Bravo announced the Southern Charm season 4 cast and premiere date this week and we have to say that April 3rd can’t get here soon enough! Although Thomas Ravenel may have given a hint that it might be the last?!
After much back and forth, we were relieved to find that fan favorite Kathryn Dennis returned to the series for at least one more season. Along with Kathryn, we will be meeting newbie Austen Kroll. Also returning for another round are: Craig Conover, Thomas Ravenel, Landon Clements, Cameran Eubanks, and Shep Rose.
Are you hearing crickets? With Southern Charm launching its fourth season, you’d think things would be in high gear, with Landon Clements having over a year to work on her travel blog, which would combine Landon’s love of travel and the arts in an online blog called Roam. One of the big embarrassments for Landon on Southern Charm’s third season was when Landon met with Lockhart Steele, the editorial director of Vox Media.
When Lockhart asked for Landon‘s pitch, there were a lot of “ums” and “ahs,” so gave her more time. Still, she was unable to come up with even a mock-up of her blog/online travel magazine, causing Landon‘s father, who will be back on season four of Southern Charm, to ask about this venture he is funding. This venture is starting to look more like a fifteen year gap year between graduating from college and getting a job.
Season four of Southern Charm will premiere on April 3rd, but until then, Bravo is sharing a sneak peek video to keep you going until then, and considering that the clip is less than three minutes, there is a whole lot of hot mess to be seen. The new season will be a combination of old, in terms of old habits, and new, like finally a new male cast member on the show, Austen Kroll.
But cast members back for a new season areLandon Clements,Craig Conover, Kathryn Calhoun Dennis, Cameran Eubanks, Shep Rose, and Thomas Ravenel, and if you recall when we last saw our Charleston friends, things were a bit rocky. Thomas and Kathryn are officially uncoupled, and are still trying to find a way to parent Kensie and Saint as platonic partners. The video has Thomas once again making accusations about a drug test, and if the last few days on Twitter are any indication, Kathryn and Thomas have not worked that detail out. (Kathryn says she’s been passing tests consistently, and Thomas says she won’t take one, while Thomas has reportedly decided he doesn’t need to take them at all, despite rumors and accusations).
Cameran posted the picture above on Instagram, sharing, “Doesn’t feel like December in the Conch Republic!” Shep Rose shared the same picture, with the caption, “In Key West for Cameran’s birthday. Want to know how she stays so youthful and exuberant? Beta Carotene! She loves carrots. She is like a rabbit. Thanks to @hookandtackle for hooking me and @krollthewarriorking up with sick fish shirts. #hogfish #bluemarlin #camwest”
Late last week Kathryn took to Twitter and Instagram to share that she was not returning to the show for its fourth season, saying the producers weren’t interested in showing the new version of her. She said she was moving on from the show and focusing on her two children, but now she has us wondering if it was all part of a plan to put a little pressure on the producers to sign her on?
Well this is some bad news for fans of Kathryn Dennis! She confirmed that she’s no longer a part of the cast of Southern Charm for season 4.
Kathyrn took to Twitter to announce that she wanted to be a part of the new season, but they weren’t interested. She shared, “Was excited to show the new me on #SouthernCharm but they aren’t interested. I want to thank my fans for EVERYTHING and wish #SC4 luck!”
Well this is a first! Someone other than Thomas Ravenel is exiting the hot mess express otherwise known as Southern Charm. And, in a somewhat ironic twist of events, the controversial cast member who constantly threatens to quit (but never does) is confirming the hit show’s fourth season.
Y’all know what that means… I’m going to be fan girling all the cast’s favorite hot spots here in the Holy City (and hopefully eating some delicious food while I’m at it!) as the crew begins filming for the upcoming season. Cash in some of your mailbox money and pour yourself a dressing drink – they are back! Well, most of them, at least.
