As viewers get ready to watch some familiar and unfamiliar personalities hit the small screen, Bravo gave Southern Charm viewers a hint about the forthcoming season.
The news that Southern Charm season 9 production and certain cast changes are well underway will excite Bravo viewers. The Charleston team has returned for another exhilarating season of illuminating how they live privileged lifestyles. Followers had observed the South Carolinians for years as they worked, went on dates, and partied in the little Southern town.
The upper-class society of Charleston, South Carolina, is represented by Southern Charm. Over the past few seasons, Bravo viewers have had access to Kathryn Dennis’ historic plantation home, Craig Conover’s passion for sewing, and what it’s like to be a trust fund kid who doesn’t have to do anything like Shep Rose.
Charleston residents have let viewers into their life since 2013 to reveal the drama that goes on in their inner circles. However, as viewers are well aware, not everything in the South is ideal.

Who Will Return & Who Won’t For Season 9 Of Southern Charm?
Undoubtedly, viewers would prefer to see a tighter-knit group than what was depicted in Southern Charm season 8, and it appears the network is in agreement. Kathryn confirmed her departure from Southern Charm ahead of the upcoming season in an exclusive interview with People.
Naomie Olindo, who returned last season, won’t be returning, according to an allegation made by @Queensofbravo, but Madison LeCroy will be “back full throttle.” Madison even posted several Instagram pictures with Patricia Altschul and Whitney Sudler-Smith, the creator of Southern Charm, as well as Madison’s new husband, Brett Randle.
Some familiar figures, such as Shep’s ex-girlfriend Taylor Ann Green, might not return, especially given how difficult the split was for both of the Southern Charm actors. Leva Bonaparte, who started her spin-off, Southern Hospitality, is also being scrutinized. Fans can only speculate on who else may or may not return to the show and hope that their favorite actors are cut because so much is still unclear.

Kathryn Is Out!
Kathryn has announced that she will leave the cast permanently in January of 2023. Growing up on the show, she said in a statement at the time, she made connections with other cast members that she would “always appreciate.”

I’m so grateful,” the original cast member explained. “I’ll be carrying that love with me as I enter this next chapter of my life, away from the Southern Charm lens. I’m thankful for Bravo, the producers at Haymaker, and my Charleston cast mates for everything.”

“You’re going to see what I have going on. I know last year, I kind of took a step back and this year I’m coming back full throttle,” the hairstylist revealed during her “New Year Fitness Goals” Amazon Live! stream in January 2023. “And yeah, I’m going to show you guys what I’ve been doing, what’s going on with me, where I’m at in my life, so that will be fun and interesting to do.”
