Even though summer is winding down, season 9 of Southern Charm is back on Bravo, and things are starting to heat up in Charleston, South Carolina. There are both fresh and familiar faces in this group, and they have a long and complicated history together.
It’s amazing that the ensemble of Southern Charm was able to work together at all after the tumultuous season 8 reunion. After all, Shep and Taylor’s breakup was nasty, Austen and Olivia are not anymore dating, and Austen and Madison can’t stand to be in the same room together. However, it does make for great TV, so we appreciate that.
Historic landmarks, elegant social gatherings, and delicious sweet tea abound in Charleston, but that doesn’t mean this group is short on drama. Learn all about the upcoming ninth season of Southern Charm right here.

Southern Charm Season 9 Plot
Season 9 of Southern Charm will reportedly focus on a rekindled romance between Olivia Flowers and Austen Kroll. In the premiere episode of this season, Olivia made it crystal clear that she wanted nothing to do with Austen. Both she and Taylor’s ex-boyfriends were eventually addressed on-screen.
Madison LeCroy and Venita Aspen’s slow-moving friendship may also be featured. They may finally clear the air on their reconciled comments from many interviews.
Although Madison and Venita are not particularly close, she is back on good terms with Leva Bonaparte, who toasted her and Brett Randle at their reception in Charleston after their wedding.
Austen and Shep are up next; they aren’t on good terms with their exes but have a friend in Craig Conover. The three were seen shopping for Madison-Brett’s event and having a pleasant time together. However, Austen and Shep’s exes, Olivia and Taylor, seem to be back on good terms.

In the preview, Austen and Taylor’s rumored affair is addressed, and Madison has what appears to be a pregnancy scare before disclosing she suffered a “pelvic fracture during the delivery.”
Craig and his girlfriend from Summer House, Paige DeSorbo, continue to argue over whether or not they should be married, and a newcomer is interested in asking Olivia out on a date. Season 9 of Southern Charm has been nothing short of exciting thus far.
