Shahs of Sunset Season 3 cast photos, bios, premiere date

Shahs of Sunset Season 3 cast photo in gold clothes

Bravo just announced that Shahs of Sunset Season 3 will premiere Tuesday, November 5 at 10/9c and judging from the shiny new 24-karat cast photos released by the network of their popular Persian peeps, Season 3 is going to be golden!

Not only does Reza Farahan deserve the trophy for the best reality show cast photo of all time, he IS the trophy for the best reality show cast photo of all time! I think the Shahs cast need to put in their application to be the next James Bond villain. They could call it From Persia With Love. Or Goldmoustache. Or Diamond Water Is Forever. Or A View To A Lilly. Until then, we have Bravo’s “The Shahs Are Golden” promo video:

OK, let’s get back to all the new info and more new, slightly less metallic cast pics from Bravo. Here is another Shahs of Sunset Season 3 cast photo followed by each of the cast members’ new pics, updated bios, and insight into what we can expect this season from the Bravo press release:

During season three, Reza is faced with turning 40 and re-evaluating everything in his life from finally moving in with his boyfriend Adam to his rocky business partnership with Mike.
