Southern Charm: Everything We Know About Season 8 Filming & Cast

Season 8 of Southern Charm has been greenlit and will reportedly start filming in September with several new cast members joining the Charleston squad. Last season focused on Kathryn Dennis' racially insensitive message aimed at a Black radio host, her new relationship, Madison LeCroy and Austen Kroll's relationship, and the addition of Leva Bonaparte and John Pringle. Viewers were also happy to see the cast finally address the racial undertones that have followed the show for so many years. However, what happened off-camera is what really made season 7 one to remember.

Shortly after Madison LeCroy ended things with her former boyfriend and costar Austen Kroll, several rumors involving them began to circulate. Austen was rumored to be in a relationship with Kristin Cavallari, and they visited each other in their hometowns: Charleston and Nashville. Not too long after, Madison admitted she and Jay Cutler, Kristin's ex-husband, also had a bit of a romance developing. However, nothing compared to the bombshell Craig Conover dropped during the reunion about Madison getting involved with Alex Rodriguez, who was engaged to Jennifer Lopez at the time.

According to Radar Online, season 8 of the Bravo series is confirmed and is scheduled to start filming sometime in September. An insider from the show told the news outlet Southern Charm is definitely coming back, and they are adding new cast members. Another source revealed the newbies were evaluated and "approved" by unknown cast members who have been on the show since the beginning. "It should be a bigger cast and more fun this year," the insider said of the new season 8 cast. Returning to the Charleston-based reality series is Kathryn Dennis, Shep Rose, Craig Conover, Austen Kroll, Leva Bonaparte, and the rest of the group. One new cast member who is rumored to be joining the show is Leva's friend, Venita Aspen. She quickly became a fan-favorite last season for her ability to tackle tough subjects such as Black Lives Matter.

The Instagram fan account, @realmomsofbravo, reportedly heard Venita will be an official cast member this year, along with three other unidentified newcomers. According to Radar Online, their prediction isn't so far-fetched. Southern Charm fans are excited to hear the show will be coming back for an eighth season, especially after what Shep said about the future of the show in March. "We haven’t gotten an offer to do the next season yet," he admitted on the Reality Life with Kate Casey podcast. As for whether or not he would return, Shep said he wouldn't mind saying goodbye to the show if he had to. "I wouldn’t be the one to sink the ship," he joked. "I’m not saying I have that power. I don’t want it to end. But I wouldn’t cry myself to sleep if it did."

After the heaviness of last season, season 8 of Southern Charm will likely focus more on the drama between the returning cast members and the new additions. Fans have waited long enough and are excited to see their favorite Charleston native back on their TV screens.
