'Chrisley Knows Best' Renewed for Season 4 at USA
USA is making yet another investment in the Chrisleys.
The network has renewed the unscripted series starring the Atlanta-based “Patriarch of Perfection” Todd Chrisley and family for a 12-episode fourth season. At a time when reality fare has struggled across the cable landscape, Chrisley Knows Best has found a way to grow season to season. To date, the show is up 17 percent and 11 percent in total viewers (2.6 million) and the key adults 18-49 demo (1.3 million), respectively.
“The Chrisleys continue to be on a roll, as fans can’t get enough of the family’s amusing, unfiltered and relatable moments,” said USA Network president Chris McCumber in a statement announcing the news Tuesday, adding: "We’re pleased to bring fans a fourth season of Chrisley Knows Best, a show that keeps growing its audience, resonates with viewers and always has us guessing what’s next for Todd and his family.”
Chrisley Knows Best, which is produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, is currently airing the first half of its third season, which will wrap July 21 with two back-to-back episodes. The second half will pick up this fall with six new episodes, including the family’s first overseas vacation in London before Chase and Savannah Chrisley venture off to college. Chrisley is part of a network schedule that's heavier on dramas, including heavily praised new addition Mr. Robot.
The renewal news comes three months after USA brass announced plans to add to the Chrisley empire. The network will soon start production on two Chrisley pilots, including a nighttime talk show hosted by Todd Chrisley from Embassy Row (Watch What Happens Live) and a Chrisley Knows Best spinoff pilot focused on kids Chase and Savannah. The potential series will focus on the kids as they begin college.
Of the former, the outspoken family patriarch recently told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's not going to be your typical 'Let's have every celebrity that's out there come and sit on the sofa with Todd.' It's going to be about people who are going through things in their life presently, whether that be a celebrity or what have you. It's not going to be just fluff."
