Todd Chrisley and Julie Chrisley and their real estate world rose to prominence after the airing of their program Chrisley Knows Best. Because of this, it gained a lot of popularity over time and has continued in the years to come since 2014.
However, the future of the series appeared uncertain. Apparently, the famous Chrisley couple is in a lot of financial and legal trouble because of their bank fraud and tax evasion case. Will the show then be canceled now that both of them may be serving jail time for their crimes?
When Chrisley Knows Best debuted on TV, viewers were captivated by the family and its elite lifestyle. Because of this, the show became the perfect lighthearted viewing experience for many. Because of this, its popularity skyrocketed, becoming one of USA Network’s best-known shows.
However, everything is slowly falling apart for the famous couple Todd and Julie Chrisley. Apparently, they are both guilty of crimes such as tax evasion and bank fraud. Shockingly, they embezzled $30 million from several “financial institutions” in Georgia. In fact, the duo did all this over a period of five years. In addition, according to rumors, the Chrisleys could risk spending 30 years in prison.
According to a federal prosecutor, the couple will most likely lose their contracts with the brands and the reality show. NickiSwift pointed out that TV networks have the power to “terminate” contracts for TV shows if one of the cast members is found guilty of committing a crime. In addition, the family has already filmed season 9 of Chrisley Knows Best. However, it has not been confirmed whether USA Network will air the series after this scandal or not. Therefore, viewers are waiting for an official announcement to make sense of the matter.
