For those that haven’t gotten enough of the shade, fabulosity and drama featured in Bling Empire, here’s some good news. Bling Empire: New York is heading to Netflix and features someone very familiar. As fans of the original show, we have to ask, how will this new iteration compare given it's on a new coast featuring a new cast? (Well, not all new)

It’s easy to imagine, for example, that the insults between these fresh faces will be even shadier. After all, it’s not like New Yorkers have a stellar reputation for holding their tongues. Also, based on the first official teaser, one has to wonder how well the new cast knows one another. Some of the people featured didn’t seem particularly close. 

Anyway, here’s everything we know about Bling Empire: New York.

Bling Empire: New York premise

Here is an official synopsis of the new series: 

"Meet a fresh group of wealthy, sophisticated and hilarious Asian-Americans from New York City, where the quality of real estate is measured by address, not acreage. Conversations are direct, not coded. And competition — for love, for money and for power – is fierce. Billionaires, CEOs and fashion icons — it’s a city where you can be anything you want to be."
