The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Growing Up Chrisley is a spin-off of family reality series Chrisley Knows Best. It has the show's trademark southern charm combined with Todd Chrisley's always blunt humor and dry quips. Like its parent series, there’s lots of bickering and bleeped cursing, and some sexual innuendo, but plenty of love expressed between family members. Apple phones are visible.

What's the story?
GROWING UP CHRISLEY is a reality series featuring the adult children of real estate developer and reality personality Todd Chrisley as they prove to their family that they’re all grown up. Chase Chrisley wants to become an actor, and his sister Savannah wants to to break into the beauty and fashion industry, so they decide to move to Los Angeles together in order to pursue their dreams. While mom Julie and their overprotective dad want to be supportive, they worry about their kids’ ability to adjust to living so far away from Nashville and trying to reach any sort of Hollywood success. Their grandmother, Nanny Faye, plans to join them on the drive across country to keep them out of trouble. But once they get there, the siblings have to figure out how to live together in their Hollywood Hills home and successfully navigate the L.A. scene, while Todd tries to adjust to life without them back at home and still try to monitor their every move.
Is it any good?
This quirky Chrisley Knows Best spin-off boasts lots of orchestrated family antics to play up laughs. Chase and Savannah, who are now in their early twenties, behave like fish out of water in Los Angeles. There's lots of bickering between the two, but they siblings real affection for their parents and their grandmother. Meanwhile, Nanny Faye is fun, but it’s the scenes featuring Todd Chrisley and his trademark humor that make up the best parts of the show. If you’re a Chrisley fan, you might find it fun to tune in, but Growing Up Chrisley just isn’t as fun as the original.
