'Party Down South' Cast On Board For Second Season
Party Down South, the Country Music Television reality TV series, will get a second season now that the cast has agreed to return.
'Party Down South' 2nd Season Moving Forward
Initially it seemed unlikely that Party Down South would air a second season, as the cast members were holding out for bigger paychecks – and not getting them. They were refusing to shoot future episodes unless CMT agreed to pay them each $7,500 per episode – up considerably from their current $500 an episode agreement, reported TMZ.
CMT refused to increase the cast’s pay, citing their 2-year contract that indicates that the pay would remain the same for each of the first two seasons. The network managed to get the cast on board by promising a heftier payday for Party Down South’s third season and beyond – providing it remains successful.
Party Down South, which premiered on CMT in January, is the highest rated series to ever air on the network. Created by Jersey Shore creator SallyAnn Salsano, the reality show is set in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina and features a group of young adults staying together in a house for the duration of the summer.
