The Buccaneers – Apple TV+ confirms a second season

Posted Filed under

The American assault on 19th century London society continues. 

The Buccaneers draws on author Edith Wharton’s unfinished final novel. It tells the story of a group of fun-loving American girls who disrupt London society in the 1870s.

After the eight-episode first season concluded last week, Apple TV+ have given the nod for a second run.

Girls with money, men with power. New money, old secrets. A group of fun-loving young American girls explode into the tightly corseted London season of the 1870s, kicking off an Anglo-American culture clash as the land of the stiff upper lip is infiltrated by a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers’ hearts are set on much more than that and saying “I do” is just the beginning.

The show is created by Katherine Jakeways, who is the lead writer and executive producer, alongside Beth Willis (Doctor Who). Season One ‘s director was Susanna White (Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang, Andor).

Katherine Jakeways said:

“It’s been a complete thrill to watch people all over the world fall in love with these characters, who’ve been brought to such vibrant life by our spectacular cast. “We know Season 1 left audiences desperate to know what’s next for our buccaneers, so I’m absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to explore the further adventures of this smart, joyful, messy sisterhood.”

The Buccaneers comes from The Forge Entertainment for Apple TV+.
