The bling is back for round 2!

Netflix has announced the return of its hit reality show Bling Empire, as well as the addition of two new cast members: entrepreneur Dorothy Wang and businesswoman Mimi Morris.

The streaming service promises that season 2, which premieres May 13, will feature "even more luxury, glamor and crazy" than season 1.

Wang teased her upcoming appearance on the show Thursday in an Instagram post featuring a look at her filming a confessional, writing "Something's coming… 👀 Tomorrow‼️" ahead of Friday's announcement.

In addition to welcoming Wang and Morris to the cast, the upcoming season of Bling Empire comes with endless drama, from questions surrounding Cherie Chan and Jessey Lee (who previously announced they would not participate in season 2) to a budding romance between Kim Lee and Kevin Taejin Kreider, whose friendship with Kane Lim will be put to the test.

"But through it all, the one thing these friends hold dearest to their hearts is their love for each other … and of course, impeccable style," Netflix said in a news release on Friday.

In July 2021, Cherie and Jessey told TMZ that they did not plan to participate in filming season 2 of the Bling Empire, citing a desire to focus more on family and business.

But Cherie didn't close the door on the opportunity to return in an interview with The Sun that February.

"I can't believe I have fans now," she continued. "They definitely want to see us back, they want to see how our relationship is going to play out, how the wedding might happen. We should be back!"
