We hope you’re ready for another insane round of drama because, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Bravo just renewed Shahs of Sunset for Season 5. Three cheers for Reza Farahan, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi, Asa Soltan Rahmati, Mike Shouhed, Mercedes "MJ" Javid, and Asifa Mirza for delivering the best season of the show we’ve seen yet!
The network’s reason for gifting us another season of this show, besides the fact that the cast is freaking fantastic, is due to its awesome viewership. The first part of the Season 4 reunion, which aired on June 8 along with the Season 10 premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County, helped deliver Bravo’s best Monday showing since February 2014.
Last week’s Shahs drew in 1.6 million viewers with 926K in the 18-49 demographic that matters so much. Also delivering big time was the RHOC Season 10 premiere with 2.6 million viewers with 1.6 million falling in that targeted demo. We don’t know how well the second part of the Shahs reunion did in the ratings last night, June 15, but we suspect it matched or improved upon the previous week.
There’s no telling who from the Season 4 cast will return for Season 5 — especially since we’re in the off-season. But given how tight the group is, we bet most (if not all) will be coming back.
