Sean Palmieri leaves The OC after completing season 3

If Selling Orange County returns for a fourth season, The Oppenheim Group's Orange County offices will have a new look. A month after Tyler Stanaland announced his departure, his co-star Sean Palmieri announced in November that he would also be leaving The O Group and would no longer serve as the showrunner for Selling The OC actor.

"After careful consideration, I have decided to part ways with The Oppenheim Group," he told People at the time. “I am very excited about this new chapter in my career and eager to embark on a journey that is closely aligned with my professional ambitions and personal growth.”

However, he made the decision after filming wrapped on season three, which premiered on Netflix on May 3, meaning Palmieri will appear in the latest installment. The fact that the real estate agent is getting more involved in the drama in the new episodes may lead to his exit. Spoilers for The OC Season 3 coming soon .

Sean and Taylor's feud

In season three, Palmieri clashed with Steinerland over a deterioration of their friendship, which ended with Steinerland accusing him of not selling as many homes since joining the O Group. In return, Palmieri criticized him for acquiring properties from his father, who was also in the real estate business.

Sean's complaints about Taylor were nothing compared to his accusations that co-worker Austin Victoria and his wife, Lisa, were trying to invite him to a threesome. Sean claimed they once baked marijuana-laced brownies and hinted at a tryst at their home. The accusations led to an almost physical altercation in the O Group courtyard, with both parties leaving angrily.

The season ended with more conflict between the three, with Palmieri's former allies saying he changed details in his version of events, raising questions about their trust. "I don't want it to end like this, man," Palmieri told Steinerand before parting ways, which ironically marked the departure of both of them.

Sean's post-O group work

In a separate statement to Entertainment Tonight, Palmieri said Oppenheim Group was a "cultural misfit" for him. So he decided to work again in San Diego, where he made his first foray into the real estate world. He signed on as a partner in real estate "mentor" Steve Games' new team at Coldwell Banker West.

“Returning to the peaceful atmosphere of San Diego County, where I ventured from Florida to California for the first time, brought me great joy,” he said. “I am eager to explore my business and opportunities for success in this vibrant community.”
