Do you enjoy period dramas? Then, watch the upcoming HBO series The Glided Age. The series was first announced for NBC in 2018, but it was eventually moved to HBO in 2019. The heart-warming period costumes keep the characters’ charm and actually give the impression of a time when everything required etiquette.
The series is set in the 1880s and depicts how eventual modernization caused conflicts among New York’s aristocratic society. The TV show depicts a period of tremendous pain and loss. The series is written by Julian Fellowes.
According to the author, her interest in American history has always been at its peak, and she was finally given the opportunity to present it to the audience. The second season was ready to air soon after the first season was released.
Season 2 Plot of the Gilded Age
The plot of The Gilded Age is straightforward. Season 2 would most likely continue to follow the changes in New York as people like JP Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and Cornelius Vanderbilt arrive with new fortunes and new ideas and effectively remake the city.
And it is likely that the Gilded Age Four A Hundred (the society set of old money families) will continue to fight to keep these newcomers and their modern ideas out of the best ballrooms. One thing Season 2 must have? The mansions, the costumes, and the opulent period details.
Season 1 is filled with long looks at the van Rhijns’ stately rooms and sweeping shots of the Russell mansion. Though there isn’t a single house that stars in it like Downton Abbey, there is plenty for fans to gaze upon.
Season 2 Release Date for the Gilded Age
“Julian Fellowes and the entire Gilded Age family have fascinated us with their latest 19th-century New York City legend,” said Francesca Orsi, senior vice president of HBO Programming Vice President.
“Together with our Universal Television counterparts, we could not boast of taking this incredibly talented team on a second season trip.” The first season’s filming was severely hampered by the Covid-19 epidemic.
With so many people in the United States now immunized, this should not be a major issue during the second season of production. Given all of this, we can only assume that Season 2 of The Gilded Age will be released in 2023.

Season 1 of the Gilded Age Review
The Gilded Age Season 1 received favorable reviews from critics. It appears that the second season of The Gilded Age will also be well received by the audience. The first season of HBO’s The Gilded Age is currently airing. We’ve seen in recent episodes of the first season of The Gilded Age that George gives Archie an ultimatum:
Accept a lucrative job and agree to stop pursuing Gladys, or later refuse and never work in finance again. Archie then walks away. Later, Richard Clay arrives to inform George that a company train has derailed near Melbourne, Pennsylvania, and the number of casualties is still unknown.
On the other hand, George and Bertha are attempting to prepare for the crisis. Let’s wait and see what happens next.
