Netflix's 'Bling Empire' Season 2: Everything We Know

I would like more dinner parties and Lamborghinis, please.

Rich people reality shows have a sort of je ne sais quoi. Their lives are so fantastically removed from my own that I can’t help but watch their adventures with a mix of giddy fascination and heightened class consciousness. Netflix’s Bling Empire, a show featuring unthinkably wealthy Asians and Asian-Americans, has it all—serious arguments about diamonds on children, heiresses lounging in lavish mansions, jet setting on private planes. As a matter of course, I shamelessly binged the entire season.

Executive producer Jeff Jenkins, who worked on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, took direct inspiration from the rom-com Crazy Rich Asians. He told, "When I saw that movie I, like every other reality television producer in town, thought, 'This would be a great reality show.'"

The main cast includes Christine Chiu, mogul and "couture queen"; model Kevin Kreider; entrepreneur Kelly Mi Li; Kane Lim, a real estate developer and investor; socialite Anna Shay; and influencer Jaime Xie, the daughter of a tech billionaire.

The series isn’t just about the myriad of ways wealthy people play around with their money and socialize in LA. The cast appears to genuinely get along with each other (Netflix says the friend group existed before the show), and they are genuinely pleasant (despite Shay’s dad being an arms dealer), making the entire series a million times more watchable than other shows of this ilk.

Between iconic looks, extravagant real estate, and charming characters, Bling Empire is another Netflix hit. So, um, when are we getting season two?

A second season hasn't been confirmed...but the creator is eager to get started.

While the show has found a dedicated audience and continues to sit on the top 10 of the Netflix charts, it has not yet been renewed for a second season.

However, Jenkins said he’s ready to get started. According to, “The cast is hilarious, sexy, funny, dramatic, and conniving. All of us would love to continue on this journey with them for as many years as viewers are interested."

Does the cast want a second season?

Two Years of Marie Claire Magazine

In a statement to Variety, Chiu championed the show's expanded depiction of Asian identity and the diversity it brought to the rich-people-being-rich genre. She told the magazine, “We were very passionate about not only the Asian representation on television, but also to be able to showcase the entrepreneurial side of our lives and the business we’ve built and, of course, the nonprofit organizations that I was and am very passionately involved in.”

On Instagram, Chiu again acknowledged the cultural diversity of the show and expressed her desire to “keep the pace going, let’s keep blinging.”

Kelly Mi Li, on the other hand, hasn’t necessarily hinted that a second season is lined up, but she did post a sweet video on Instagram thanking fans for their support. She noted that people like me have already binged the season (I may even rewatch it) and stated, “Shooting this project was such a great experience. I learned so much about myself, and I’m just really grateful I got to share my journey and story with you guys.”

When could Netflix release the season season?

With coronavirus still on the loose, it’s unlikely that the show could film the lavish parties and social engagements that we saw in the first season right now. Let's hope the new administration will sort the vaccine rollout swiftly so we can get back to bingeing new Bling Empire content!
