MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. -

Summer is here and that means… filming starts on the second season of "Welcome to Myrtle Manor."

 The TLC "reality" show, which is based at Patrick's Mobile Home Park near the airport, was recently picked up by the network for a second season.

 "We really are excited," Patrick Cecil, owner of the park, told WBTW on Friday. "It means we're going somewhere and we're doing better than anyone thought we would."

 Filming could begin mid-way through the week.

 Patrick said that some last-minute set-building could delay things a couple of days, but wasn't sure at this point. 

The show, which has new producers this year, focuses on the interaction of several key figures at the park, including some young women, a security guard and the Cecil family themselves.

 Recently, the city of Myrtle Beach extended the dates that allow the park to sell souvenirs on site.

So, the public is still allowed there during daytime business hours to buy items and even catch a glimpse of the "stars." The park is located at 2000 Hwy 15 in Myrtle Beach.

 Although the first season went smoothly, some off-screen antics grabbed headlines in May just as the season ended.

 Three cast members were charged with various infractions in Myrtle Beach during a four day span. One man, Taylor Burt, was charged in a case of criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

 Two young women on the show were charged with DUI.
