'Shahs of Sunset' gets second season

April 17, 2012 |  2:44 pm

Shahs of Sunset finale draws big ratingsThe folks of "Shahs of Sunset" have a reason to break out the expensive champagne and all the diamond water in Asa's fridge (rather than unleashing G.G.'s knife collection): Bravo has decided to bring the show back for a second season.

Official word of the renewal comes after one of the show's stars, Golnesa "GG" Gharachedaghi let it slip that the show would be returning during an appearance Wednesday on a New York news channel.

Not that there was much doubt that the Ryan Seacrest-produced show would return. Though it drew some criticism for its portrayal of Iranian Americans, the show debuted to 1.1 million viewers, besting Bravo veteran "Bethenny Ever After." And its finale, which aired Sunday, was the highest-rated episode of the season with more than 1.5 million viewers (a million of which were in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demo).

No word yet on when production would start or whether Reza's mustache would get a pay bump.
