Bravo's new series "Southern Charm Savannah" premieres at 10 p.m. May 8.

The series will follow six lifelong friends as they set out to make their mark in this world, all while navigating their legacies, love lives and personal relationships.

"Southern Charm Savannah" expands the franchise of "Southern Charm," which last season averaged 1.7 million total viewers.

The close-knit group of "Southern Charm Savannah" includes Lyle Mackenzie, who moved back to Savannah hoping to make an honest woman out of his high school sweetheart; Louis Oswald, who recently resigned from his corporate banking job to become a full-time entrepreneur; Hannah Pearson, who relocated from Atlanta and found love but learned that in Savannah, "mama's boy" takes on a whole new meaning; Daniel Eichholz, a Jewish businessman by day and ladies' man by night who was forced to grow up after a scandal nearly destroyed his family business; Catherine Cooper, a modern Southern Belle on a quest for independence; and Ashley Borders, a fashionista who spent years traveling the world before realizing there really is no place like home.

Additional cast members include Happy McCullough, who is bucking old-school Southern traditions by marrying her Muslim boyfriend, and comeback kid W. Nelson Lewis Jr., who made headlines in Washington, D.C., with his wild behavior.
