Great news, The Gilded Age fans! HBOMax has officially renewed the epic series for season 2! Let the drama continue!


As we previously reported, The Gilded Age was on the hunt for a new character for season 2. So, it was only a matter of time until it was officially announced. Today is that day! According to a press release from HBOMax, The Gilded Age will return for season 2.

The series comes to us from creator Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and HBOMax. The epic series is a 9-episode drama series that shows the clash between the old money and the new. The series begins in 1882 and we meet Marian Brook (Louisa Jacobson). After the death of her father, she is moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City to live with her estranged aunts, Agnes (Christina Baranski) and Ada (Cynthia Nixon). These women belong to the old money and old ways, and not only control Marian, but the town. 

While season 1 is to be 9 episodes, it seems season 2 will only be 8. Frances is shown to likely be in 5 of 8 episodes. So, this is an assumption that will be fully confirmed later. 

You can watch the current season of The Gilded Age on HBO Mondays (9:00-10:20 p.m. ET/PT) and will be available to stream on HBOMax.  Stay tuned to THS for more news!
