Modern Love fans, get ready to fall in love all over again. When the Amazon anthology series premiered in 2019, viewers were captivated by its emotional stories about all kinds of love. Now, you can look forward to feeling all the feels once more, since Modern Love is returning for Season 2 on Amazon.
The show is based on The New York Times' popular column of the same name about "relationships, feelings, betrayals, and revelations." Each episode of Modern Love is based on a memorable column entry, using an all-star cast to recount real-life love stories. The Emmy-nominated first season featured stars like Anne Hathaway, Dev Patel, and Fleabag's Hot Priest himself, Andrew Scott.
Modern Love Season 2 was first announced back in October 2019, just a week after it debuted on Amazon. Now, the series is finally coming back, so viewers can indulge in their hopeless romantic side with a slew of brand-new episodes.
"We're so excited to bring a second season of this series to life and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most," showrunner John Carney told Deadline. "With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I'm so appreciative to be a part of making that happen."
Here's what we know about Season 2 so far:
Modern Love Season 2 Trailer
On July 15, Amazon released the first official trailer for Modern Love’s new season. The trailer interwove several clips from the new season’s stories. Kit Harington and Lucy Boyton meeting cute on a train led off the trailer, but fans also got a look at Tobias Menzies and Sophie Okonedo as a divorced couple who might be getting back together; Lulu Wilson and Grace Edwards turned up as two teenagers discovering their sexuality, while Gbenga Akinnagabe and Zoë Chao hit it off at a party.
