Nest Seekers’ latest batch of reality stars have landed a second season on Discovery+.

The streaming service announced the renewal of “Selling the Hamptons” ahead of the Memorial Day holiday. The show’s second season is expected to include eight episodes and begin airing early next year.

Before the renewal was announced, the New York Times reported a second season was scheduled to start filming in June. Series star J.B. Andreassi told the Times the show has brought him new clients, but he’s also lost business from those who didn’t receive as much attention from him as they hoped.

The show centered on six agents from Nest Seekers International, serving the real estate needs of some of the world’s wealthiest enclaves. The first season of the show premiered early this year, rolling out episodes on a weekly basis.

Most of the past season’s central cast is expected to return. The press release from the streaming service mentions J.B. Andreassi, Mia Calabrese, Bianca D’Alessio, Michael Fulfree and Peggy Zabakola. Absent from the press release is Kenny Arias, who did not immediately return a request for comment.

There will be two new cast members joining the upcoming season, but they haven’t been identified.

The Discovery+ show seemingly emerged from the rubble that was “Million Dollar Beach House,” a similar program that aired on Netflix for one season that featured three of the same cast members as “Selling the Hamptons.”

The six-episode Netflix series debuted in 2020, drawing less than favorable reviews that prompted speculation about the show’s future. Last year, Nest Seekers president and CEO Eddie Shapiro told The Real Deal that it was “not correct” to say the show was canceled, but a second season never materialized.

Shapiro deferred further comment to DIGA Studios, the production company behind that show; DIGA also produces “Selling the Hamptons.”
