So when the upcoming season is releasing? What is the plot? Who are playing the lead roles? Continue reading to know further details.

The Gilded Age Plot and Cast

Carrie Coon

While The Gilded Age is a fictional story, it’s historically grounded in the year 1882. The first season included several real-life figures, including Clara Barton, founder of the Red Cross, and T. Thomas Fortune, the founder of the African-American newspaper New York Age. Season 1’s storyline also featured some events that happened, such as the climactic social event in Episode 7 when Thomas Edison presented a fully illuminated New York Times building.

For now, Season 2’s possible plot points haven’t been revealed, but we have one prediction – in Season 1, Bertha was thwarted in her attempt to buy a seat at the Academy of Music, the traditional opera venue where no more than a dozen private boxes are held by old money families.

Social historian Carl Raymond tells The New York Times that attending the opera “was a social battlefield… it was about where you sat, what you were wearing—and most importantly, who saw you do it.” New money families pooled their resources to fund the construction of a bigger venue, and the Metropolitan Opera House opened at Broadway and 39th Street in 1883. Marian Book and/or the Russells might attend the premiere performance of Faust in Season 2. Everything will be revealed once the second season releases.

There’s no word yet on who specifically from the main cast will be returning for a second season, but barring any season finale surprises or scheduling conflicts, we can safely expect the return of the show’s primary characters that include Carrie Coon, Morgan Spector, Denée Benton, Taissa Farmiga, Blake Ritson, Simon Jones, Jack Gilpin, Cynthia Nixon, Christine Baranski, Kelli O’Hara along with others.

The Gilded Age Season 2 Release Date

Morgan Spector

As to when the anticipated second season will be with us, it’s too early to tell. The first season premiered in January 2022, and while a year’s production is standard in the industry, something this lavish might take a little longer. For now, we can expect it to release in 2023.

The episode numbers have not been revealed by the creators yet. The rest of the details related to the show is yet to be confirmed and revealed by the makers.
