Netflix is just like the rest of us in that it enjoys a good heated historical drama. This time around, the streamer has brought us all the way back to the year 1854. That is the year that a defiant princess, who, after marrying Emperor Franz Joseph, is elevated to the position of Empress of Austria and enters the realm of politics at the Viennese court.
The second season of “The Crown” has not yet been given the green light by Netflix; but, there is a wealth of material to draw from in the wake of that unexpected cliffhanger, and costly historical dramas typically perform well for Netflix. Simply consult The Crown or Bridgerton on the matter.
Having said that, what should we anticipate from the subsequent season, and when should we anticipate it to premiere? The following is a rundown of everything that we currently know regarding The Empress season two.
Will The Empress Season 2 Air?
Put your horses and/or carriages on hold for a moment. Given that The Empress just started airing a week ago, it is far too early to determine whether or not the show has already proven itself worthy of being renewed for a second season (September 29).
It is possible that Netflix will bring the show back, but this will depend on how well it does in the ratings. You can continue watching by selecting the “next episode” option once you have settled in.
Just keep in mind that after such a successful premiere in December 2020, it took Netflix an entire month to confirm that they would be renewing Bridgerton; therefore, we are not worried just yet.
Who’s in The Empress Season 2?
If there is a third season of The Empress, it is virtually inevitable that Devrim Lingnau will return for a second run as Elisabeth von Wittelsbach, better known by her nickname Sisi. After all, The Empress wouldn’t be The Empress if it weren’t for The Empress.
Following close behind her, we anticipate seeing the following:
- Emperor Franz Joseph is played by Phillip Froissant.
- Melika Foroutan played Sophia
- Elisa Schlott played Helene
- Johannes Nussbaum played Archduke Maximilian
- Jordis Triebel played Princess Ludovika.
- Hanna Hilsdorf played Amalia
- Svenja Jung played Louise
- Raymond Tarabay played Ambassadeur De Bourqueney.
What’s The Empress Season 2’s Plot?
The plot of The Empress resolves with Elisabeth being imprisoned within the palace gates for violating royal protocol (showing compassion) after she gives a little girl in need her shoes on a visit to the iron factory.
After realizing that nothing would be done to aid the needy, Elisabeth gave in to despair and began partying with Franz’s brother Maximillian, further tarnishing her reputation.
The Archduchess, clearly at her wit’s end with the defiant Empress, suggests that Elisabeth return to Bavaria, and Franz, who has a heated argument with his wife and accuses her of having an affair with his brother, agrees.
But just as Franz is about to advise Elisabeth to leave, she finds out she’s expecting. The Empress is devastated by the news, but she keeps it from her husband.
A big, angry throng had been gathering outside the palace gates to protest the Emperor by the time Elisabeth was ready to leave. Guards request that the carriage be turned around, but Elisabeth insists that the gates be opened.
The Empress, watched by Franz and Sophia, announces her pregnancy to the throng with an enthusiastic “I see you” and an embrace.
Are the people going to accept her after what she does? Could she ever forgive Franz? Now that she’s expecting, what are Sophia’s ambitions for herself?
If Netflix decides to order a second season, we can hope to get answers to all of these issues.
