The Gilded Age Season 2 Updates: The Gilded Age, HBO’s new period drama set in nineteenth-century New York City, debuted in January, but some fans are already wondering if it will be renewed for a second season. Here’s all we know about the second season of the show thus far.
THE GILDED AGE HAS BEEN RETURNED FOR A SECOND CHAPTER.
In February 2022, HBO announced the renewal. “Julian Fellowes and the entire GILDED AGE family have enthralled us with their tale of late-nineteenth-century New York City luxury,” said Francesca Orsi, HBO’s executive vice president of programming. “We couldn’t be prouder, together with our partners at Universal Television, to begin on a season two journey with this extremely talented crew.”
THE WRITERS ARE WORKING ON SEASON TWO RIGHT NOW.
Even before the programme was officially renewed, the creators of The Gilded Age began planning what would happen next to these characters. “We’re always getting the second season ready well before we know whether it’s going to go forward or not,” executive producer Gareth Neame told Radio Times.
“Because, you know, as soon as we know we’re going ahead, we have to start rolling the cameras. As a result, you’ll need to get ready.” “As a result, we’ve already started brainstorming concepts for the second season,” he stated. If the series is renewed, director Salli Richardson-Whitfield also told the publication that “there are all sorts of ideas and fantasies” for additional plots.
CHRISTINE BARANSKI, CARRIE COON, CYNTHIA NIXON, AND AUDRA MCDONALD ARE AMONG THE CAST MEMBERS RETURNING.
With such a vast cast of heavy hitters, finding a time to film season two that worked for everyone’s schedule may have been challenging. Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Louisa Jacobson, Blake Ritson, Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Taissa Farmiga, Harry Richardson, Deena Benton, Simon Jones, and Jack Gilpin are among the 11 series regulars who will return, according to Deadline.
Thomas Cocquerel, who played Tom Raikes, Marian’s love interest, is the only season regular who will not return. Baranski, who plays Agnes van Rhijn, the show’s grande dame, expressed a strong desire to return.
“I could definitely, happily continue with this show and with these performers, and with this particular amazing writer, Julian,” she told T&C ahead of the season two announcement, stressing that if it is renewed, she may have to film The Gilded Age alongside The Good Fight.
“Unfortunately, due to COVID and other factors, if The Gilded Age returns, it will be on parallel lines. Even though I’m filming two episodes at the same time, this is what you call a champagne problem.” In their recurring roles, Audra McDonald, Nathan Lane, John Douglas Thompson, Ashlie Atkinson, Claybourne Elder, and Ward Horton are all slated to return.
THERE IS CURRENTLY NO PREMIERE DATE.
Keep an eye on this. As more information regarding Season 2 of The Gilded Age becomes available, we’ll update this story.
