Welcome to Myrtle Manor, also known as Trailer Park: Welcome To Myrtle Manor, is an American reality television series on TLC that premiered on March 3, 2013,[1][2][3] with filming of the first season taking place from August to November 2012.[4] TLC ordered a second season in May 2013 that consists of ten episodes and debuted on January 16, 2014.[5][6][7][8] Filming for the second season began the last week of June 2013 and completed in October 2013.[4][9] The series' production company, The Weinstein Company, announced that the series would be renamed Trailer Park: Welcome To Myrtle Manor beginning with the second season in order to leave the option open for spin-off series set in other trailer parks across the United States.[10]

It was announced on July 10, 2014, that Welcome to Myrtle Manor had been renewed for a third season that will consist of 10 episodes. Filming will begin on August 11, 2014, and continue through January 2015.[11][12][13] On June 4, 2015, the cast announced that TLC would not be going forward with a fourth season at this time placing the show on hold. The cast asked for fans of the show to let TLC know that they wanted a fourth season.[14] As of 2016, TLC had "no plans" for another season. Cecil Patrick, owner of the mobile home park, said it was still a tourist attraction, especially among those whose lives were similar to the park's residents.[15]

Premise[edit]

Welcome to Myrtle Manor documents the lives and problems of the residents at Myrtle Manor — also named Patrick's Mobile Home Park — a trailer park community located in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.[16] The series includes drinking, relationship drama and the struggle as Cecil hands over the park to his youngest daughter, Becky. Some of the cast members have lived in the park for years, others had just arrived.[17][18] [19][20]

  • Amanda Lee Adams—Amanda was a part of the Darlin' Dog hot-dog business in the first season,[1] but is now a cocktail waitress at The Bowery Bar.[22] Adams was arrested on April 26, 2013 and charged with DUI. Police discovered Adams and her black Jeep Wrangler smashed head-on into an electric pole. She admitted to "consuming three beers and four shots", then took a breathalyzer test and blew a .20, which is more than twice the legal limit in South Carolina.[23][24]

Economic impact[edit]

A Coastal Carolina University study determined the show's annual economic contribution to the Myrtle Beach area to be $101 million. Over $2 million of that was direct spending by those producing the show. Sales of show-related products totalled $800,000. If an episode was assumed to be equal in promotion value to a 30-second ad, the value was $3.3 million. The remainder assumed that 1 percent of visitors considered the show to have influenced their decision to come to Myrtle Beach.[26]
