Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives Season 2 Release Date, Cast, And More Information

The world of luxurious lives on reality TV is becoming a major thing. An obvious example is "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," where their lives of glamour and access are part of the appeal, but it's stretched beyond Calabasas. Think of the Netflix hit "Bling Empire," which is basically "Crazy Rich Asians" broken up into several episodes.

Even the "Real Housewives" franchise offers a level of vicarious exposure to infinity pools and couture and the explosion of this genre of television shows there's something viewers are loving about it. So it's no surprise that another new series cut from the same cloth is such a hit. "Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives" takes audiences through the days of "idle rich women," as The New York Times says. The Indian reality series definitely has "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" vibes, with the same themes of glamour and drama that made the Kardashian clan so famous.

So with Season 1 of "Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives" being such a hit, what's the story with Season 2? Here's everything you need to know.

When can we expect Season 2 of 'Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives'?

Good news for fans of "Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives": Netflix renewed the series for a second season, according to Gadgets. While this is a very happy announcement, a release date for the second season hasn't been confirmed yet, per ScreenRant.

As is the case with production all over the world, filming for the Indian reality show was stalled due to the coronavirus pandemic. Quarantining guidelines meant that the leading ladies, along with everyone else who made the show possible, were isolated.

While much of Mumbai has reopened, according to ScreenRant, group outings have still been prohibited, so brunch and shopping is a no-go. As Bollywood Life also confirms, Season 2 is going to happen. The only problem is we don't know when we're going to get it. While we're still anxiously waiting, show favorite Gauri Khan teased Season 2 on Instagram, adding the caption: "Hey girls ... I'm gate crashing season 2." Speaking of girls, who are we going to see in the upcoming season?

Cast: Who's coming back for Season 2?

Fans of "Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives" can expect to see the return of the four leads: Bhavana Pandey, Maheep Kapoor, Seema Khan, and Neelam Kothari Soni, according to ScreenRant. But Season 2 also promises to offer more insight into the lives of the husbands too, which means we'll be seeing more of Chunky Pandey, Sanjay Kapoor, Sohail Khan, and Sameer Soni, per the outlet.

In fact, Chunky spoke about his upcoming role in Season 2 with Bollywood Life and joked about the financial arrangements he and his wife have around the show. "The second season has been confirmed and I'll have to participate as my wife [Bhavna Pandey] is there in it," he said. "But they haven't signed me," he revealed, laughing: "They've only signed Bhavna, so all the money will go to Bhavna, I'll have to work for free." Chunky added, "It's a nice, fun show."

How does the series rate with audiences?

The Karan Johar-produced "Fabulous Lives of Bollywood Wives" gained a lot of traction in just one season. However, the show doesn't always score high with audiences. The series scored a 4.7/10 on IMDb ratings. A common complaint among viewers was that the first season didn't give audiences depth or complexity when it came to the leads and their relationships. As NDTV noted, "We do not get to see much of the women's interactions with their husbands or children. The focus is on them fretting over what to wear to a party [or] getting into a major kerfuffle over a minor point of dispute between two of them on one occasion."

While these are legitimate complaints, it looks like things are slated to improve for Season 2 since it looks like the husbands and families will play a more active role. So we have a feeling that Season 2 is going to be bigger, better, and hopefully, a little more intimate.
