'Bling Empire' Season 3 on Netflix: Are Cherie Chan and Jessey Lee returning for the new season?
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Cherie Chan was a regular on Season 1 of the Netflix hit series 'Bling Empire'. At the time, she was seen with her partner Jessey Lee, awaiting a proposal from him. The couple had a daughter and were expecting a son during Season 1. Since then, many events have transpired on the show and in the couples' lives. The two went on to get dramatically engaged on camera and get hitched in an off-camera ceremony. But with only a brief appearance in Season 2, the couple mysteriously disappeared. Fans are left wondering whether Cherie and Jessey will return now that 'Bling Empire' Season 3 is scheduled to premiere on October 5, 2022.
In Season 2, the couple was in the midst of planning their wedding before their on-screen disappearance. Co-star Jaime Xie had lunch with a mutual friend Leah Qin, who claimed to have known Cherie and Jessey for over five years. Leah had casually stated that Jessey was married to someone else before Cherie and had two children with his ex-wife. Once the information was out, it left the cast and viewers of the show stunned to their core. But neither had an opportunity to discover Cherrie and Jessey's perspectives as the two disappeared right after the incident.
Following their disappearance, Cherrie posted a picture of her and Jessey on their wedding day on her Instagram. She captioned the post, "Married to the love of my life. Don't be friends with people who try to hurt your family, kids, and close friends." Around the time, Cherrie had also hinted that the pair would not be returning to the series at all. In an interview with The Sun, Cherrie said they "don't know" if they would return for another season.
She had stated that their return wasn't set in stone, saying, "We're thinking. We don't know just because it's so different for us. I can't believe I have fans now. They definitely want to see us back, they want to see how our relationship is going to play out, how the wedding might happen. We should be back!"
The 'Bling Empire' star continued, "It's tough. As a mom, I'm really worried about the kids. It's stressful being a mom. It's great, but it comes with a lot of mom wanting to protect her child. I had no idea it was going to be this big!"
Cherrie's reasons considered, the couple's departure isn't that surprising, and it is definitely unlikely that the family will return for the new season.
Season 3 of 'Bling Empire' is set to premiere on Wednesday, October 5, 2022, on Netflix at 12 am ET/PT.
