Yes, season 1 just dropped but what about 'Bling Empire: New York' season 2? We're already curious!

Yes, we're already thinking about Bling Empire: New York season 2. 

Sure, Dorothy Wang touched down on Manhattan soil practically a minute ago, we've only just been introduced to the likes of Tina Leung, Nam Laks and Lynn Ban, and we're still learning more about Richard and Vika's budding relationship. 

However, many of us gobbled up the debut season of the Bling Empire spin-off rather quickly, and now we are curious about what glitz and glam await us next.  

"While we were not friends when we all started, we all knew someone in the cast," cast member Blake Abbie told Women's Wear Daily (opens in new tab). "Our group is actually really organic. There are of course different personalities and we have different roles to play, but in the end, we do get along."

Will we be seeing more of this "organic" group out and about in Gotham? Here's what we know so far about Bling Empire: New York season 2.

It's too soon to tell whether or not Bling Empire: New York season 2 will be officially greenlit by Netflix

Typically, the streamer is relatively quiet about how it goes about picking and choosing what series live on. However, according to Bloomberg (opens in new tab), Netflix uses its own "idiosyncratic data points to evaluate programs." To dig into the mathematics a bit further, the company heavyweights rely on three large factors: how many viewers reach the two-minute mark of a show, how many of those viewers stick around for the season, and how many finish the show entirely. 

We haven't heard much in the way of stats just yet for the first season of Bling Empire: New York, but it did crack into the coveted "Netflix Top 10." Let's all remain hopeful that the glamour and drama will continue! Of course, should there be an update, you'll be the first to know.

What will 'Bling Empire: New York' season 2 be about?

Should Netflix pursue a sophomore season, there are plenty of plot points to tackle. 

For one, everyone's curious about Dorothy's relationship with Ari and if there still is a relationship. (She's keeping everything hush-hush.) Speaking of relationships, what's next for Richard and Vika, especially after the not-so-smooth sailing in season 1? 

What will Nam do once she graduates: stay in New York, or head home? Will she be able to stick to a reasonable shopping budget? Will Tina be able to feel a little more comfortable in the dating world? What about Blake? And how many Rolls Royces will the Hung family buy next? So. Many. Questions.

Dorothy, in particular, has a few dreams for what's next. For one, she'd love her idol, model-actress Kimora Lee Simmons, to join the Bling Empire: New York cast. Now that they're connected to one another, who knows? (Some suspect Kimora is bound for Bravo and will star on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, despite Dorothy's wishes.) 

"Once I was leaving a massage and [Kimora] actually stopped me and was like, 'Hey girl, I really love your show. We should do some stuff together,'" Dorothy told Interview (opens in new tab). "Now, I wouldn’t say we’re best friends, but we’re close. We text, we see each other, we sit next to each other and chit-chat."

We'll be standing by, Netflix!

Season one of Bling Empire: New York is now streaming on Netflix.
