  • Netflix original series Selling Sunset has been greenlit for seasons four and five

  • Although Brett Oppenheim and Davina Potratz left the brokerage, they will still appear on the show

  • Heather Rae Young's fiancé HGTV's Tarek El Moussa is expected to make his official Netflix debut in season four

  • The Oppenheim Group is currently opening a second larger office and Jason Oppenheim exclusively selected only one agent to work there—in other words, get ready for the drama

Netflix’s original series Selling Sunset is the perfect mix of luxe real estate meets major drama. The reality show follows the real estate brokers of the Oppenheim Group in Los Angeles, CA, as they juggle multi-million dollar listings as well as their whirlwind personal lives.

Created by Adam DiVello of MTV’s Laguna Beach and The Hills, this docusoap earned itself a spot in Netflix's Top 10 shows after season three was released. It has also been nominated for a Critics Choice award in the Lifestyle Home/ Garden category for the last two years.

The series stars real estate agents Chrishell Stause, Christine Quinn, Heather Rae Young, Mary Fitzgerald, and Amanza Smith—to name a few. Now, if you breezed through the first three seasons, you're probably wondering what's next. Is there a next? Let's just say the sun is far from setting on the Oppenheim Group office.

Will Selling Sunset have a season four?

Yes! Production sources revealed to TMZ that the title was renewed for a season four and a season five. Filming for season four is slated to start in spring 2021.

When will Selling Sunset season four premiere?

The premiere date has not yet been announced. However, since filming will start next spring, the new season will most likely hit Netflix later in 2021 or early in 2022.

What can we expect to see in Selling Sunset season four?

A deeper look into Heather Rae Young's relationship with Tarek El Moussa

Since season three wrapped, Heather Rae Young got engaged to HGTV star Tarek El Moussa. If the previous two seasons are any indication, as both Mary Fitzgerald's and Christine Quinn's weddings were featured, Young's wedding will be a major plot point in this new season. However, while we expect there will be a lot of chatter around the wedding in Oppenheim Group office, we might not get to watch the actual wedding.

In an interview with KTLA 5 in August 2020, Young shared that she's "leaning more towards no," when it comes to featuring her wedding on Selling Sunset. "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 said.

However, there is some good news—Tarek El Moussa may finally make his Netflix debut. 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 season four, allowing him to appear on the show without violating his contract.

Both he and Young have given the thumbs up to the idea of working together. Not to mention, Jason Oppenheim told Fox News that he's all for El Moussa's potential appearance on the show. "Tarek has become a friend to us and a part of the family. And I do hope that that is presented on the show too."

Ultimately, Netflix producers will make the final decision on whether or not he will be granted screen time. But as we know from the show, most folks don't like to disappoint Jason.

Chrishell Stause's new life as a single woman

Season three of Selling Sunset spotlighted Chrishell Stause's divorce from This Is Us star Justin Hartley—and unfortunately it wasn't pretty. Since the season aired on Netflix, Stause has kept busy. She joined the season 29 cast of Dancing with the Stars. Alongside dance partner Gleb Savchenko, the dance duo made it to the eighth week in the competition before facing elimination.

In a September interview with ET, Stause confirmed that she's single, but is "excited to mingle," when the time comes. When asked if anyone was sliding into to her DMs, she revealed her inbox has been active and told the outlet: "There's a few [people you might know], but I'm not going to tell you who," she hinted adding that it's been a "nice surprise." According to Savchenko, Stause has been talking to hockey players.

Brett Oppenheim's new brokerage

Brett Oppenheim now operates the similarly named Oppenheim Real Estate brokerage, and his name has been scrubbed from the Oppenheim Group's website. While we're unsure of what transpired between the twin brothers, and provoked Brett to leave, Mary Vander confirmed to People in August 2020 that there is no bad blood between them. "They are very similar personalities, so they still work on some stuff together, I know that for a fact,” she said. "They get along very, very well. There's nothing bad over there."

TMZ reported that despite leaving the brokerage, Brett will still appear on Selling Sunset.

Davina Potratz's new gig

In October 2020, Potratz announced that she was leaving the Oppenheim Group to pursue a new role at rival real estate company Douglas Elliman. "It’s not that I wanted to leave, but I had a great opportunity. It was a purely business decision," she said of her new venture. Despite the job change, she is still expected to be featured in season 4. It is unknown if cameras will follow Potratz around as she settles into her new role, or if she'll make appearances on the show outside of work. Either way, Selling Sunset's villian isn't going anywhere.

The Oppenheim Group's second office — and Heather Rae Young's new opportunity

Although Chrissy Teigen may have never heard of the Oppenheim Group, the brokerage is kind of a big deal. Afterall, it does boast over a $1 billion in closed sales. With that in mind, Jason Oppenheim decided it was time to expand.

In late November 2020, he confirmed to Fox News that the Oppenheim Group would be opening a second office in Newport Beach, California. While Jason will continue to oversee the Sunset Blvd office, he's already picked out who will work in this new office. Heather Rae Young will transfer her duties over to this space and take on listings in the area, while Jason's high school best friend Matthew Peters will assume the role of managing broker of the office. Both Young and Peters currently live in the Orange County town, which is located over an hour away from the original office.

While the deal isn't finalized yet, things are already looking bright. "The office that we're looking at is insane. I mean, it's insane. So hopefully I'll be signing the lease soon," Oppenheim explained.

Will this office be nicer than the original? It seems likely. Already, we can see tensions flaring amongst the other agents when they find out Young exclusively gets to work there. Moreover, she'll probably have a better chance at securing listings in the area as the remaining agents battle it out in Los Angeles. Will Christine Quinn be happy Young has been moved? Or jealous? It's hard to say, but they definitely didn't end season 3 on good terms.

How can I stream and watch Selling Sunset?
