Bravo’s ‘Shahs of Sunset’ is a reality tv drama that follows the lives of an elite group of Iranian-Americans living in the posh locale of Beverly Hills. Instantly after the show was announced, it sparked interest because of the cultural backgrounds of the stars. And over the years, the show has managed to become a staple on the network — primarily because of its hilarious, fascinating, and entertaining insight into Persian heritage in LA. Eight seasons in and counting, the addictive, sexy series shows no signs of slowing down. And if you wish to know more about its future, here’s all the info we have gathered.
Shahs of Sunset Season 9 Release Date
‘Shahs of Sunset’ season 8 premiered on February 9, 2020, on Bravo. After airing for 13 episodes, it wrapped up with its finale on May 1, 2020.
As of now, Bravo has not renewed the show for a new season. But we need not wait for an official announcement. The previous outing left off with many unanswered questions and the series has immense scope to continue for multiple seasons. Needless to mention, the Shahs have managed to attract a strong fan-following over the years. Once Bravo gives a go-ahead to the reality drama, we can expect ‘Shahs of Sunset’ season 9 to release sometime in 2021.
Shahs of Sunset Season 9 Cast: Who Can be in it?
Season 8 of ‘Shahs of Sunset’ focuses on Reza Farahan, Golnesa Gharachedaghi aka GG, Mercedes Javid aka MJ, Mike Shouhed, Destiney Rose, and Nema Vand — who form the main cast. There are occasional appearances from Tommy (MJ’s husband), Adam (Reza’s partner), Sara Jeihooni (Reza’s friend), and Paulina (Mike’s girlfriend). Season 9 is expected to see all of the above cast members making their respective comebacks.
What Can Shahs of Sunset Season 9 be About?
Most of the drama in the eighth edition revolves around long-term friends MJ and Reza. Reza discovers that his husband, Adam, had been sharing flirty texts with other men. To add to his dismay, he also finds out that MJ might have been involved in this mess as well. Thus starts a never-ending saga of accusations and clashes between the buddies, which culminates in Reza issuing a restraining order against Tommy (MJ’s husband). Toward the end, the friends try to sort out their differences but when Reza fails to stick to his promise of lifting the restraining order, MJ is furious.
MJ goes through a complicated pregnancy and gives birth to baby Shams. Mike discovers a new love in his Persian-Jewish girlfriend, Paulina while GG wants to become a mum via IVF. Destiney gets embroiled in the feud between MJ and Reza, whereas Nema tries to get over his ex, Erica.
Season 9, when renewed, will pick up the story from here. One of the major arcs that the upcoming edition should focus on is if the crack between Reza and MJ’s friendship will ever be resolved. We are yet to see if Mike succeeds in his relationship with Paulina and whether GG is able to find joy in her journey toward motherhood.
