‘The Golden Age’: everything we know about season 2 of Julian Fellowes’s glamorous period drama for HBO

It has been one of the most anticipated period series thanks to the huge cast and the creation of Julian Fellowes (‘downton abbey‘) and has not disappointed. ‘the golden age‘ (The Gilded Age) will return to hbo max with a season 2 with more cups, corsets and the cream of the cream of New York society.

With a first season finished last March, let’s review everything we know from Season 2 of the HBO period drama.

The history

Few plot details we know about this season 2 beyond what needs to be continued, like the big Marian’s heartbreak and the revelation that Peggy had a son whom he believed dead but a letter hidden by his father gives him the clue that he may still be alive in Philadelphia.

Also, the moves in the cast (recurring who are promoted to “regulars”) give some clues about the plots: Turner could continue conspiring despite his dismissal; there are clues to the romance between Thomas and Peggy; the beginning of an unlikely friendship between Bertha and Mrs. Astor; or the coming to light of Watson’s secret could be the main lines of the new episodes.

Carrie Coon Donna Murphy

In Fellowes words:

“I thought the whole season 1 should be about Bertha’s fight and I really wanted to use the Alva Vanderbilt cotillion because I love the fact that she blackmailed Mrs. Astor to come. It seemed to me a good end to her vaulting ambition up to that point».

Also a greater protagonism of the servants is pointed outsomewhat following the evolution that Fellowes led to in ‘Downton Abbey’.

The cast

Thomas Cocquerel will be the main casualty for season 2 of the series. Low caused by the plot that has starred with his character Tom Raikes.
