The series concluded its 8-episode first season on Tuesday, April 22nd at 10/9c, with Todd’s granddaughter Chloe celebrating her first birthday. In true Todd fashion, he bet his wife Julie that he could throw just as fabulous a birthday party for Chloe as she could. The wager was on and Todd had to do it all on his own. He soon realized the hard way that planning a party with cupcakes and a petting zoo is not as easy as Julie has made it look. As previously announced, CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST has been picked up for a 12-episode order for season two, which will offer up even more outrageous, laugh-out-loud moments, as well as more extreme parenting lessons from the “Patriarch of Perfection,” Todd Chrisley.
The entire first season of CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is currently available on video on demand and USANetwork.com.
CHRISLEY KNOWS BEST is produced by Maverick TV and All3Media America, with Adam Greener, Jim Sayer, Eli Holzman and Stephen Lambert serving as executive producers. Annie Kate Pons serves as supervising producer. Stephanie Bloch Chambers served as an executive producer/showrunner of season one.
