It’s official: The romantic reality show “Sweet Home Alabama” is back for a fourth season, and CMT plans to air it in November.
Production began in September, according to information released by CMT, and is again based in the Fairhope area.
The show premiered in July 2011 and drew such strong response that CMT aired three seasons virtually back to back. The show’s formula mixed dating with a country-versus-city dynamic: At the center of the action is one man or woman, working to find the right match from a crop of about 20 suitors. Those are divided between people with more rural, mostly Southern backgrounds and competitors with more cosmopolitan origins from elsewhere in the country. (There have been exceptions, such as Southerners from major cities and farmers from the Midwest.)
This time around, according to CMT, 11 city slickers and 11 country guys will vie for the affections of a Southern belle named Kelsey. According to a report at www.examiner.com, that’s Kelsey Dee Smith of Tuscaloosa, who works as a model in California.
Many coastal Alabama locations were used as backdrops on the show, from Ladd-Peebles Stadium and Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile to the Flora-Bama and other sites throughout Baldwin County. Deep South Speedway has announced that the show’s production crew will be present this Saturday.
According to CMT, the fourth season of “Sweet Home Alabama” will premiere Nov. 8.
