Los Angeles’s beloved uber-rich Asians are back with even more luxury, glamor and crazy. Netflix has announced the new cast and set a May 13, 2022 launch date for Bling Empire Season 2, which will consist of eight 40-minute episodes.
Bling Empire follows a wildly wealthy group of Asian and Asian American friends (and frenemies) in Los Angeles. While their days and nights are filled with fabulous parties and expensive shopping sprees, don’t let the glitz and glamour fool you.
Between running multi-billion dollar businesses and traveling the world, these friends are as good at keeping secrets as they are at spilling them. And there is certainly no shortage of secrets.
In Bling Empire Season 2, a romance between Kevin and Kim percolates, Cherie and Jessey’s relationship is questioned, and as Kane and Kevin’s best bud friendship is tested, Beverly Hills’s rivaling queens, Christine and Anna, put a new twist on the art of social warfare.
But through it all, the one thing these friends hold dearest to their hearts is their love for each other… and of course, impeccable style.
The executive producers are Jeff Jenkins, Ross Weintraub, and Reinout Oerlemans. The showrunner is Brandon Panaligan, while the production companies are Jeff Jenkins Productions, in association with 3BMG.
BLING EMPIRE SEASON 2 NEW CAST
International television personality and entrepreneur Dorothy Wang has quickly made waves in the entertainment industry. In 2015, she could be seen starring on E! Entertainment‘s hit series Rich Kids of Beverly Hills.
Dorothy quickly became a fan favorite, captivating audiences with her impeccable style, perfectionist ways, and frank candor. Born and raised in Beverly Hills, Dorothy’s Chinese-born mother and father moved from Taiwan to the United States for graduate school.
Her father, Roger Wang, quickly built a successful real estate business and always instilled in Dorothy and her sister the importance of hard work, family values, and giving back to the community.
Mimi Morris was born in Vietnam. At the height of the war, at the age of seven, Mimi and her seven brothers and sisters were unable to flee their village to find safety, so instead spent two years living in a large hole in the ground, with scant food or water.
Later making her way to America, Mimi started her own successful business, got married, and started a family. Although Mimi now lives in the height of luxury, she has never lost her work ethic nor her strong survival skills in the face of adversity.
At first blush, Mimi comes off light-hearted, witty, and joyful. But don’t let her delightful demeanor fool you. Nothing gets past her.
When both Bling Empire and Selling Sunset were renewed, Brandon Riegg, Netflix VP of Unscripted and Documentary Series, said: “These shows follow a person or group of people (like family, friends, or coworkers) going about their real, everyday lives.
“They can offer a fun, light-hearted escape, or inspire a juicy, heated debate. They can provide a glimpse into a world different from our own, or even show a new side of our own circles. (And yes, they’re usually filled with more feuds, tears and tense dinner parties than our regular lives.)
“Whether you love these shows outright or just love a guilty pleasure, we’re thrilled that Netflix members have embraced our docusoaps. Today we’re excited to announce renewals for Selling Sunset and Bling Empire, plus two can’t-miss new series from the creative talents behind those favorites.”
