Selling Sunset is the hit Netflix reality show—from the creative minds behind Laguna Beach and The Hills—which follows the lives of a group of successful women in Los Angeles's ultra-competitive, high-end real estate market. Once you finish binging Season 3 this weekend, you'll likely be wondering when Team Oppenheim will be back for round four.
The show stars Heather Rae Young, who is newly engaged to HGTV star Tarek El Moussa. In addition to Young, the show features realtors Mary Fitzgerald, Christine Quinn, Chrishell Stause, Davina Potraz, and Maya Vander alongside the owners of the real-life real estate company where they work: Jason and Brett Oppenheim of The Oppenheim Group. Amanza Smith, an interior design specialist, joined the show in Season 3.
When is Selling Sunset Season 4 premiering?
Netflix has not yet announced a fourth installment of Selling Sunset. However, two signs point to the fact that a new eight-episode season is definitely on the horizon. First, Season 3 quickly became one of the top 10 shows on the streaming platform during its premiere weekend. Second, Quinn suggested in a recent interview that a new season had only been delayed because of the coronavirus pandemic.
"Unfortunately, it has been affected. So usually, we get picked up after the show airs," she told Grazia in June. "You know, we'll hear some information, some rumblings. With Season 2 being in the top 10 [on Netflix], I think we're definitely going to get picked up. But everything has been setback due to COVID. We’re going to shoot next year now, I'm hearing. We have such a big production, there's so many people on our crew. I don't think we'd be filming this year."
How can I stream and watch Selling Sunset?
The series is a Netflix exclusive, meaning you can only watch it if you have a log-in to the streaming platform. Though there may be a wait for Season 4, you can watch or re-watch the first three eight-episode seasons for free if you sign up for a month-long trial. After the 30-day period, you can resubscribe for as little as $8.99 a month.
Young's upcoming wedding to Tarek El Moussa might not be featured
Since Season 3 wrapped, HGTV star Tarek El Moussa got down on one knee to propose to Young. If the previous two installments are any indication, Young's wedding will be a major plot point of a potential fourth season. Fitzgerald and Quinn both had their weddings featured in the finales of Season 2 and Season 3, respectively.
However, in a recent interview with KTLA 5, Young shared that her wedding to El Moussa might not be featured on Selling Sunset like the big days of her cast mates were. "It's a really personal and intimate day, and I don't know if I want my family mic'd up," she said. "I don't know if I want them pulled away while I'm having to film a scene," she continued. "So, you know, it's something we're still in discussion about, but I'm leaning more towards no," she said.
Currently, Young and El Moussa are still deciding on the wedding's location, so the decision to have the ceremony filmed isn't pressing. Even if Young opts to not have her walk down the aisle shown on Selling Sunset, there's still a chance it could appear on El Moussa's show Flipping 101. Already we know that their proposal will be featured on the home renovation show. "[HGTV] filmed our engagement," Young had told Buzzfeed Celeb in an interview.
In the past three seasons of Selling Sunset, El Moussa was not allowed on the show due to his contract with HGTV. However, a special agreement has been brokered for a potential Season 4, which means if Young does change her mind about filming the wedding, one of their biggest obstacles has already been solved.
Stause's new life as a single woman will likely take center stage, too
In Season 3, we finally learned new details about Stause's divorce from This Is Us star Justin Hartley. The sixth episode of the season was titled "One Text Changes Everything," and the meaning turned out to be quite literal. "I found out, because he texted me that he had filed," Stause told Fitzgerald. "Forty-five minutes later, the world knew."
In July, Stause asked for her legal name to be restored by a court. Hartley cited irreconcilable differences when he filed for divorce after two years of marriage. Despite the personal setback, Stause appears to be putting her best foot forward. "There is always a reason to smile," the 38-year-old wrote on Instagram this week. "You just have to find it."
The divorce may also fuel drama on a potential new season after Quinn told Page Six that Stause had gone to therapy with her ex. "I just learned Christine is giving press ‘information’ about my divorce," Stause wrote in a follow-up tweet. "Let me be VERY clear. She knows absolutely nothing about the situation."

There may be some changes to the cast, Quinn teases
"Going into season 4, I think it's going to be really interesting," Quinn said in an August interview with Entertainment Tonight. "And also the dynamics are going to be changing. You know Davina is a broker. Brett has left the brokerage and started his own firm. I mean, there's a lot of chess pieces waiting to be moved across the board, so I think it's going to be the most interesting season we ever will have—if it happens."
Brett Oppenheim now operates the similarly named Oppenheim Real Estate brokerage, and his name has been scrubbed from the Oppenheim Group's website. Vander has also mulled leaving the firm after hunkering down in Miami amid the coronavirus pandemic.
"My goal is to stay in Miami unless I have a client that's worth me to fly for a day or two to do showings and stuff like that," she told ET. "I'm trying to just stay put in Miami—that's the goal."
Could that mean a future spin-off of the show called Selling South Beach?
"I think Miami has the sexiness and the luxury," Vander added in the interview. "You know L.A. shows very well, and I think Miami can show well, as well."
