It’s that time of year again, when we’re anxiously anticipating the start of Season 2 of The Gilded Age. The Gilded Age’s first season has come to an end, but we’ve received confirmation from credible sources that HBO has already renewed the Julian Fellowes series for a second season.
Julian Fellowes is best known for Downton Abbey, and it appears that HBO has renewed the historical drama The Gilded Age for a second season. With its flawless setting and storyline, the first season sparked and fascinated the audience. It was a smash hit on HBO, and audiences loved the show’s New York City setting in 1882.
It shows the societal antagonism that existed between Old New York and the New Money Family at that time.
What Was the Gilded Age All About?
The drama centres on George and Bertha Russel’s New Money Family, and it opens with Marian Brook, played by Louisa Jacobson, who introduces the audience to the world of New York High Society in the nineteenth century.
Furthermore, the series explores the African-American experience of the main character, Peggy Scott, played by Denee Benton. Julian Fellowes, like Downton Abbey’s winning recipe, must maintain the upstairs/downstairs conflict portrayed by Russells’ servants and Christine Baranski’s Agnes Van Rhinn.
It was one of the most intriguing takeaways from The Gilded Age’s first season. The audience, on the other hand, adored Bertha and George, who became fan favourites by the end of the season.
Mr. Russell portrays a tough businessman who cares deeply for his family, children, and Berth. On the other side, he is on a mission to fight for her family and have them recognised by high society figures such as Mrs. Astor, played by Donna Murphy.
Although the conclusion of the first season was something that fans did not want to see so soon, now that it has been renewed for the second season, we can’t wait to watch how the drama unfolds in the second season.
HBO renewed The Gilded Age for Season 2 on February 14, 2022, and because the series’ writers and creators were already working on the next season’s story, we should expect production to start shortly and the new season to air sooner.
The Gilded Age Season 1 has surpassed numerous ratings, even those of HBO’s buzzy smash The White Lotus, which premiered in the summer of 2021.
The Gilded Age: Plot, Cast, and Release Date
Season 1 closed with a major plotline about George Russell’s legal issues following a railway crash. The season finale also centres around Mrs. Astor’s uncertainty over attending Glady Russell’s debutante ball.
Marian’s decision to run with Mr. Raikes is another subplot that will be resolved in the coming season. The next season will most likely start up where these storylines leave off, although Julian Fellowes will almost certainly introduce new people and plots, as well as show more historical occurrences.
The second season’s cast is still unknown, but we are convinced that series stars Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Denee Benton, and Cynthia Nixon will all return. Christine Baranski has indicated her wish to return to the series, and it appears like she will do so for the upcoming season. The majority of the cast members are expected to return in the following season.
The production will take place in New York City, New Port, Rhode Island, and Troy from May to October 2022. We may expect the new season to premiere in the spring or summer of 2023, based on timetables and planning. Julian Fellowes has previously kept audiences waiting for over a decade with Downton Abbey, so it’s hardly surprise that Season 2 of The Gilded Age will be delayed as well.
