Will everyone from Bling Empire‘s cast return for Season 2?
“The cast is hilarious, seductive, witty, dramatic, and deceitful,” Bling Empire executive producer Jeff Jenkins told OprahMag.com of the show’s actors in 2021. We’d all like to stay on this adventure with them for as long as viewers are interested.” While fans are excited to see more of “HBIC” Anna Shay, her antagonist Christine Chiu, Cherry Chan, Kane Lim, Jaime Xie, Kim Lee, and the rest of the cast, there have been reports that not all of Season 1’s stars will return for Season 2.
Even Jackie Chan and Jessey Lee had already shot material for future episodes, EW revealed in August 2021 that they will not be returning for Season 2. The couple, who were engaged on the Season 1 finale after Chan proposed to Lee, had “chosen to move on to focus on their family, business, and other ventures,” according to TMZ.
Who could take their place? There have also been rumors that former Rich Kids of Beverly Hills cast member Dorothy Wang has been filming for Bling Empire Season 2, while Page Six claimed in January 2022 that Chinese millionaire Stephen Hung had been observed filming something in New York City, which might be Bling Empire.
