Southern Charm Savannah Recap: Second Time’s (Not) The Charm

So last night was the season two premiere of Southern Charm Savannah, and I’ll let you decide if it should have been #RenewedByBravo. After its weak initial run, the show didn’t get nearly the traction as its franchise flagship. Now, on the heels of an explosive and exceedingly popular season of Southern Charm, will Savannah be able to keep up any momentum? Only time will tell.

I know you forgot who these people were. Don’t feel bad, I did too. Allow me to provide you with a quick breakdown before the recap. Catherine Cooper will never hold a candle to the Kathryn Dennis comeback kid. You recall she turned down the proposal from her on-again, off-again beau Lyle MacKenzie to create some finale drama. Her bestie and mentor Brandon Branch joins the cast as a full-time player after many a cameo on season one. Hannah Pearson dates Louis Oswald. You remember them because she cries a good bit and has a lot of random ambitions, and he’s an overgrown frat boy with a sock collection and penchant for funneling beer. Daniel Eichholz is the hot guy who took over his father’s law firm and works hard to never offend. He’s minimal drama at best. You remember Happy McCullough…oh wait, you don’t. You don’t remember Hagood Coxe either, but, as opposed to the case with Happy, it’s because Hagood wasn’t a part of the cast last go-round. Ashley Borders was the resident society rebel who may have had a moonlighting gig at the baggage terminal for Delta. Caught up? Yeah, I won’t remember them next week either…

VIDEO: Southern Charm Savannah Returns July 16th! Watch The Teaser To See The New Drama!

Y’all. Will Andy Cohen ever learn to leave well enough alone? Southern Charm is something that just can’t be duplicated like the Housewives franchise. Southern Charm New Orleans is entertaining, but it in no way measures up to the original. However, I thought we’d all learned that Southern Charm Savannah just didn’t work. It shouldn’t be a thing. But it is because it’s returning for a second season on Monday, July 16th. Is Bravo that desperate for a summer line up?

It’s been so long since the first season aired, I’ve forgotten who these people are, and I got paid to watch it! I seem to recall a mouthy baggage handler for Delta and a thwarted proposal, but that could be any number of reality show plot lines that take up space in my brain. Thankfully we’ve been blessed with a teaser for the upcoming train wreck! It appears that relationships are rocky. Lyle Mackenzie is still seething from Catherine Cooper’s engagement denial, and Louis Oswald straight up calls girlfriend Hannah Pearson “asexual” in the trailer. Perhaps this go-round the group will be entertaining!
