Soon after Todd Chrisley’s talk show, According to Chrisley, was canceled, production sources revealed that the planned spinoff for Chase and Savannah Chrisley was also in peril. Todd Chrisley, whose shows started with Chrisley Knows Best, is being forced to reexamine expansion of the Chrisley brand and think about going back to basics on the USA Network.
Radar Online is reporting that the other Todd Chrisley projects in the works have been axed by the USA Network. Savannah Chrisley, 20, and brother Chase Chrisley, 21, were supposed to get their own spinoff of the original Chrisley Knows Best, and now sources close to the production say that isn’t going to happen. After the failure of the Todd Chrisley talk show, production sources say that the network isn’t willing to take the risk.

“The network execs just didn’t feel it would do well. Unfortunately, neither one of them has enough personality to carry a show without their father and family drama,” said one source.
Todd Chrisley publicly announced in August that Savannah and Chase were going to get their own spinoff of Chrisley Knows Best, highlighting the two twentysomethings leaving the nest.

The Network Allegedly Doesn’t Believe That Chase And Savannah Chrisley Can Carry A Show
Todd Chrisley shared his ideas for a Chrisley Knows Best spinoff featuring Chase and Savannah.
“This show will follow them as they live on their own and give their parents huge headaches and potential heart attacks. The plot thickens with love.”
But things have gotten complicated as a result of the cancellation of the Chrisley talk show, and according to the production source, Savannah “is not easy to work with” and college student Chase “has no time” to film.
But a network source says that it’s not true that the spinoff plans have been scrapped.
“The information that their spinoff is not still in the works is inaccurate.”
