What will the ‘Southern Charm’ and ‘Summer House’ spinoff series be called?

Bravo recently made huge announcements about what is coming to the network in the coming months. One of the biggest revelations was the mashup spinoff series between Southern Charm and Summer House. Up until recently, fans had been calling the show Winter House. The title made sense as most of the cast was from Summer House and they filmed during the winter.

However, Bravo officially dropped the show’s name and announced it’s called Summer House Winter Charm.

“When the temperature drops, the drama heats up,” the NBCUniversal press release read. “This all-new series follows some of Bravo’s favorite Summer House and Southern Charm cast members and their friends during a two-week vacation at a ski house in Vermont.”

Andy Cohen is not happy with the name of the show

Cohen interviewed Craig Conover and Austen Kroll, stars of Southern Charm who are set to appear in Summer House Winter Charm. When Kroll asked Cohen what he thought of the name, the WWHL host did not hold back and revealed his real opinion.

“I never say anything publicly against Bravo, but I actually saw the name and I’ve been meaning to call two people at Bravo to say, ‘What are you thinking?'” Cohen shared. “It actually is a terr… it is an aggressively… It’s not good.”

Conover said that despite the title of the show Cohen is going to love it because “it’s really good.” Cohen said he “understands that” as he has seen the whole show now.

Who is part of the ‘Summer House Winter Charm’ cast?

Conover and Kroll are the only two Southern Charm cast members on Summer House Winter Charm. The rest of the cast is from Summer House or are new faces to the franchises. From Summer House, Luke Gulbranson, Paige DeSorbo, Amanda Batula, Kyle Cooke, Ciara Miller, and Lindsay Hubbard took part in the new adventure.

When the Summer House finale aired on Bravo, the cable network aired a teaser to get fans excited for the new show. The cast is in the middle of a tug-of-war where it’s clear that one side has more strength than the other.
