If you, like us, have had a giant Selling Sunset–size hole in your heart ever since season 5 landed on Netflix in April this year, then fear not—Selling the OC, the long-awaited second spin-off show, is on its way.

From Wednesday, August 24, we’ll be able to binge-watch Selling the OC, a spin-off centered around a group of brand-new realtors selling property to the mega-rich of Southern California’s Orange County. They will of course be led by season veterans Jason and Brett Oppenheim–twin brothers and cofounders of the Oppenheim Group.

All eight 30-minute episodes will be available to stream–so the choice is yours whether you want to draw them out over a few evenings or book out four glorious hours to watch the season in its entirety. Anyway, here’s what you can expect.


The official show synopsis reads: “A fresh set of realtors square off, competing to establish themselves at The Oppenheim Group’s second office on the Orange County coast. Will the pressure prove too much for these agents to handle?”

In an interview with Tudum, Netflix’s official companion site, show creator Adam DiVello (the man who is behind both Selling Sunset and its first spin-off, Selling Tampa), gave a little more intel on what to expect.

“The cast is just wild, right from the jump; they don’t hold back. They don’t have any filters. They say what they’re thinking. And it’s a very drama-filled season,” he told the platform. 

While the show will be full of drama, it will also seemingly be a feast for the eyes. Adam—who once worked on the MTV reality show Laguna Beach, also set in Orange County—will also be looking to highlight the scenic views of the location itself. 

He told Tudum: “It’s such an escapist show, it’s just so beautiful. I hope people just fall in love with the town as much as I did when I first started working down there.… They’re just going to love seeing the beaches, the bonfires, and people surfing. I can’t wait for people around the world that didn’t get to catch Laguna Beach to see it. They’re going to get to see this town and be like, ‘It’s mind-boggling that people live down there.’”


Netflix released an official teaser trailer for Selling the OC on May 6, 2022. 

And it did not disappoint. Immediately, drama is in the air as gossip abounds that cast member and agent Alexandra Rose slept with a developer in order to win a listing.

“I can’t believe the audacity to spread rumors,” Alexandra Rose (confusingly, one of three cast members called Alexandra) retorts–cue a lot of swearing, accusations, and brewing of rivalries. Looks like we’re in for a gripping watch!

We know that the cast of realtors will feature a more even gender mix this time around. “Sunset is known for its cast of women (with the few men usually trying to avoid getting caught in the crossfire), but the dynamics in the OC series will prove a bit different,” reads the Netflix statement.

Names joining the cast will include: Alex Hall, Alexandra Jarvis, Alexandra Rose, Austin Victoria, Brandi Marshall, Gio Helou, Kayla Cardona, Lauren Brito, Polly Brindle, Sean Palmieri and Tyler Stanaland. While the names may not mean much to us right now, we’re sure they will do very soon. And of course, we’ll be seeing the return of the Oppenheim brothers. There is notably no mention of Chrishell Stause, who has dated Jason, on this season.

Let’s remember, that’s not the only good news from this franchise: The announcement of the release date for Selling the OC came hot on the heels of the news that Selling Sunset is getting sixth and  seventh seasons. 

The spin-off show was first announced last year, on November 8, 2021, by Jason Oppenheim, via Instagram. He wrote, “I am so excited for our new show, ‘Selling the OC,’ about my Newport Beach office and its amazing agents! Thank you @netflix @lionsgatetv @adamdivello @skylerwakil for believing in me and what we have all created together with Selling Sunset.”

According to Variety, the show will follow Jason as he expands the company in California’s Orange County. Avid Selling Sunset stans will already know that Jason has already opened a second office in Newport Beach. 

Selling the OC is not the first Selling Sunset spin-off to emerge either. Earlier this year Netflix confirmed that the show’s creator, Adam DiVello, would be at the helm of Selling Tampa, which will follow Allure Realty: a Black-owned, all-female, real estate business.

In a statement, Netflix said, "Along the Florida coast, Allure Realty stands out among the crowd. Owned by military vet Sharelle Rosado, this all Black, all female real estate firm has its eyes set on dominating the Suncoast. These ladies are equally as fun as they are fiercely ambitious, with all of them vying to be on top of the lavish world of luxury waterfront real estate."
