After a few of the popular reality series stars were found guilty of bank fraud and tax fraud, Chrisley and Julie Chrisley are facing up to thirty years in prison for their crimes. That could result in their show getting the axe.
In May, Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley signed a contract for a 10th season. Season 9 was shot before the trial began and will continue to air as usual. At the moment, the future of the next season is now doubtable, according to TMZ.
A source close to the situation told the outlet that it is unclear when production for Chrisley Knows Best season 10 will begin. The situation is considered immediate. execs of the USA Network are waiting to see what the couples sentences look like.
Todd and Julie have not been scheduled for their sentencing until October. That means that USA Network will have to make a difficult decision. They may have to cut off the show before the Chrisleys discover their fate.
The Chrisleys are currently out on bond. They are confined to house arrest and must be electronically monitored. The United States may theoretically begin filming the new season in the interim, but Todd and Julie are at risk of imposing things on the camera crews.
The USA Network has not commented on the situation. In the next weeks, USA will have to make some extremely tough calls. If they aren''t confident about how sentencing will proceed, it might be Chrisley''s final decision.
