Netflix’s Bling Empire has fallen. Both the original series and its spinoff, Bling Empire: New York, have been cancelled, TVLine has confirmed.
Inspired by the big-screen success of Crazy Rich Asians, the first series focused on a group of Asian-American socialites in Los Angeles. Bling Empire‘s first season premiered in January 2021, followed by a second in May 2022.
The series’ cast included model Kevin Taejin Kreider, real estate developer Kane Lim, philanthropist Christine Chiu, plastic surgeon Gabriel Chiu, socialite Anna Shay, DJ Kim Lee, actor Andrew Gray, influencer Jaime Xie, hairdresser/singer Guy Tang and billionaire Dorothy Wang.
Wang later relocated to the Big Apple for a spinoff, Bling Empire: New York, which released a single season in January 2023.
Bling Empire‘s 10-episode third (and now final) season was released in October 2022. The series’ last hurrah reunited Anna with a surprising face from her past, propelled Kane forward in his fashion career, found Christine helping Kevin rekindle an old romance in Paris, and sucked everyone deeper into the show’s central feud between Christine and Anna.
News of Bling Empire and Bling Empire: New York‘s cancellations were first reported by TVLine’s sister site Deadline.

Now this is really rude. I am going to bawl me eyes out.
Bring it back!
Wasn’t a fan. Stinks for those who were.
No WAY. These shows were so much better than Selling Sunset … New York was so much fun I am so shocked. Damn you Netflix
Shut up omg. Your not anyone’s parent on here. Can’t tell them how to talk.
Damn. I was a fan. I like Anna better than Christine. Christine is everywhere. Seems like a fame whore. Anna just seems filthy rich. Good for her.
I thought the first season was so so, then it just went downhill. I’m glad Netflix pulled the plug. Plus who wants to see a bunch of dramatic rich people show off there bling? (Boring).
The first season was OK, but went downhill after that. They ran out of drama and the manufactured storylines just weren’t believable enough. Still a shame as found it good mindless background viewing.
Omg I loved Bling Empire. The spin-off was ehh but honestly I would watch a show just about Kane and Jaime. Make them their own shows Netflix!!!!!
Wow! What a huge disappointment! I really liked these guys, and looked forward to the drama every week to help me escape from my mundane existence!
Now I will never know what happens between Anna and Christine…..we can only hope the shows will get picked up by another channel…help us out, Peacock!!
Why is Netflix canceling both?! We have the housewives, why not Bling?!? I’m sure Netflix had enough rating for the LA Bling. My children are half Asian and enjoyed the show (really).
Bring back the BLING!
Shame on you Netflix, I enjoy this show!
