E! Renews ‘#RichKids of Beverly Hills’ for Season 4 (EXCLUSIVE)

E! has renewed “#RichKids of Beverly Hills” for a fourth season, Variety has learned exclusively. The reality show is set to return in 2016.

The new crop of eight episodes will follow cast members Morgan Stewart and Brendan Fitzpatrick’s road to the altar. Cameras will follow the couple, who previously got engaged on the show, and their best friends — returning cast members Dorothy Wang, Jonny Drubel and EJ Johnson — as they prep for the elite wedding from picking out the cake to flowers to invitations and the venue.

Season 4 will not feature any new cast members. Roxy Sowlaty, who was a regular on the first three seasons, and Taylor-Ann Hasselhoff, who appeared in the most recent season, will not be returning.

Aside from the wedding, other expected storylines in the new season are Wang giving dating a second chance after her devastating breakup, plus Johnson working on his modeling and acting career, following his 180-pound weight loss, and Drubel trying to become the next big DJ. As drama is a sure thing, Stewart and Fitzpatrick’s wedding bliss causes a rift among the tight-knit clique of socialites.

“#RichKids” revolves around the lives of Los Angeles-based 20-something millionaires and billionaires by inheritance who all hail from ultra-wealthy families. Among the group is Johnson, the son of former NBA pro Magic Johnson.

In its third season last spring and summer, “#RichKids” averaged about 1 million viewers, including about 650,000 adults 18-49, in Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates.

Aside from “#RichKids” getting renewed, E! also picked up another season of Caitlyn Jenner’s docuseries “I Am Cait,” which is set to return with Season 2 next year. The cabler recently ordered a new unscripted series about the L.A. Clippers dance squad, in addition to setting up eight new digital series, including a post-show for E!’s first scripted series “The Royals.”
