Family Karma Season 3 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

While most people may associate Bravo with the Real Housewives franchises, there are so many other great shows and sleeper hits on the network. One of those shows is "Family Karma," which follows a group of super-rich Indian Americans and their families living around Miami. The show first premiered in March 2020, and Season 2 concluded in July 2021. The great thing about this show is that it follows the group of friends as much as it does their parents, grandparents, and aunties. It's truly a multi-generational reality show, but that doesn't mean that they don't get into messy drama and drunken antics. 

When it premiered, it received mixed, but mostly positive reviews, particularly from Indian American critics who were intrigued by the representation of their culture on Bravo. "For the first time that I can remember, we're getting TV about the Indian-American community unto itself, not about its struggle to assimilate," Sanjena Sathian wrote in The New Yorker in 2020. But it wasn't just critics who loved the show; on Twitter, the series developed a sort of cult following into Season 2, with Danny Pellegrino, host of the "Everything Iconic" podcast, tweeting, "Family Karma is the best show on Bravo right now." And as a Housewives expert, he would know. 

So is it coming back for a third season? Here's what we know. 

Family Karma's Season 3 release date is up in the air

"Family Karma" premiered in March of 2020, but its second season premiered in June 2021, so it's hard to tell when, if at all, a third season will be released. In fact, "Family Karma" hasn't even been technically renewed by Bravo yet, but given its popularity, it's likely that an announcement will be made fairly soon about a Season 3. The series, as with all Bravo shows, is likely dealing with salary negotiations and casting details, but fans should feel secure about getting another round next year. For Season 2, the show started filming around October 2020, per Page Six, so there is more than enough time for Season 3 to be delivered by sometime next spring or summer. 

The cast members are definitely down for another round it seems. "It gets better and better, and I don't know a single person that can't say anything good about the show. The show is fantastic, phenomenal, and everyone needs to watch it," Vishal Parvani told Nicki Swift in July. "Tell their mothers, tell their daughters, tell their sons, it is the best show. Because you know what? We have the best friends and family." With a happy cast and happy fans, it's hard to imagine the series won't return.

This is what we know about the Season 3 cast

The cast of "Family Karma" is unique in that these families really did grow up together, so the kids really do know each other and their relationships are genuinely layered. This means that casting the show means the core families will always be front and center, with a friend tossed in here and there. From Season 1 to Season 2, the cast barely changes, with the exception being of Dillon Patel going from a "guest" to a main role. They also added Rish Karam in Season 2, despite his not being in Season 1. 

Barring any major drama, it's likely that the same cast would return for Season 3, given the aforementioned format of the show. Luckily, it looks like most people are still on board, too, with Monica Vaswani even revealing in an interview with Brown Girl Magazine that the aunties are obsessed with the production crew. "I really got comfortable with the camera's following me when the production crew became a part of our family," she explained. "If I was cooking you better believe that I made extra to make sure everyone ate after we wrapped filming. Some of the moms were even packing to go bags with lunch for the camera crew! It holds so true to how our parents are in real life." If everyone's getting along this well — even despite onscreen drama — most of the cast is likely to return. 

Other details about Season 3 remain scarce

While it's very likely that the show will return given the cast's enthusiasm for filming and the growing number of fans watching, there still isn't any information about what is going on with Season 3. Typically, a Bravo show will announce another season just before filming, and then release a trailer with that they have a few months later, so if you're really concerned about the fate of "Family Karma," just sit tight. Given that Season 2 was filming in October 2020, fans should expect that same sort of timeline for any forthcoming season. 

It's really just up to the powers that be at Bravo to make the final call, have all the aunties dot their i's and cross their t's, and get ready to welcome the production crew back into their homes again. Given that the camera guys are getting fed so well, it seems like a sure bet that everyone wants to get going on another season.
