According to Deadline, HBO renewed The Gilded Age for a second season in February 2022. The following statement was released alongside the Season 2 announcement by Francesca Orsi, Executive Vice President of HBO Programming, and it conveys the studio’s excitement for the show’s return:

“Julian Fellowes and the entire ‘Gilded Age’ family have thoroughly captivated us with their tale of late 19th century New York City extravagance. Along with our partners at Universal Television, we couldn’t be prouder to embark on a season two journey with this extraordinarily talented team.”

Meanwhile, Nathan Lane, who plays Ward McAllister, revealed in an interview with The Today Show in February 2023 that Season 2 “won’t be coming on until September,” offering fans a sneak peek at its premiere date:

Season 2 won’t be coming on until September… But that’s sort of like being part of a great repertory company. A lot of old friends and people I’ve loved from afar.

The Gilded Age Season 2 may debut in September or October. However, there is no official release date for the program yet.

Most of The Gilded Age cast members will return in Season 2. However, a significant member of the outstanding cast will not.

What will happen in The Gilded Age Season 2?

The Gilded Age Season 2 is prepared to continue delving into the effects of the season one finale’s paradigm-shifting conclusion. Marian’s search for a new love after Tom Raikes’ departure in Season 1 continues in the next season. In Season 2, Peggy’s quest to discover her son with her mother is also anticipated to take centre stage.

The full synopsis for The Gilded Age Season 2 can be seen below, courtesy of Digital Spy:

“The Gilded Age was a period of immense economic change, of huge fortunes made and lost, and of fierce rivalry between old money and new. Nowhere is that rivalry more apparent than on East 61st Street, where Marian Brook and her thoroughly old money aunts, Agnes van Rhijn and Ada Brook, live opposite the stupendously rich George and Bertha Russell.

The Russells are both fiercely ambitious, he financially, she socially, and they are determined to reach the highest echelons of New York. Meanwhile, in Brooklyn, Marian’s friend and confidant Peggy Scott forges her own path in the world of the Black elite. In this glittering world on the brink of the modern age, will the established rules of society prevail, or will the game change entirely?”
