“World on Fire,” a huge World War II drama produced by the BBC and PBS’ Masterpiece Theater, was a home run for the networks. When World War II officially begins in 1939, the star-studded series follows the exploits of people in cities as diverse as Manchester, Warsaw, Berlin, and Paris, among others. In September 2019, Season 1 of the PBS series “World on Fire” premiered in Europe, followed by a premiere on PBS in the spring of 2020. Since then, fans have been waiting with bated breath for word of Season 2.
While the epidemic has caused production to be delayed, the good news is that Season 2 of “World on Fire” will go on as planned. In fact, the show’s creator, Peter Bowker, stated in a 2019 interview with Radio Times that he has the characters’ journeys planned out over the course of six seasons. “I know what happens to the key characters over the course of six series,” he remarked. “When pitching a show, people will frequently inquire as to what will happen in series four, episode three. ‘What is going to happen to this character?’ You must be aware of the situation without appearing to be English about it.”
Of course, this does not necessarily imply that the program will be renewed for a sixth season, but fans can rest confident that Season 2 is on the way — and, even better, Bowker and the cast have shared some details about what viewers can expect to see when the show comes to our screens.
World on Fire Season 2 Release Date
At this time, there is no word on when the series will be released. Due to the fact that production began in 2021, we may anticipate that the new season will be released in mid-2022 or the first half of 2023.
The second season of World on Fire is expected to consist of seven episodes, similar to the first season. The remaining facts may be revealed before to the launch of the second season of The Walking Dead.
World on Fire Season 2 Cast
On the other hand, the PBS Masterpiece Theater website has stated that “World on Fire” will be returning to the network for a second season, while emphasizing that it is “too early” to speculate on how many episodes will be broadcast or who will be in the cast of the show.
Julia Brown, Yrsa Daley-Ward, Blake Harrison, Jonah Hauer-King, and Patrick Kennedy star in the film, which also stars Julia Brown in the major role. A number of other actors, including Parker Sawyers, Brian J. Smith, Zofia Wichacz, Tomasz Kot, and Agata Kulesza, would appear in the film.
World on Fire Season 2 Plot
Because of the epidemic, the production schedule for “World on Fire” was rescheduled, as was the case for a slew of other series and movies. Although no official launch date for Season 2 has been announced as of yet, it was revealed in the comments area of an Instagram post from the show’s official account in October 2020 that filming would begin in the summer of 2021. On the same note, the PBS Masterpiece Theater website has confirmed that “World on Fire” will be returning to the network for a second season, but has cautioned that it is “too early” to speculate on how many episodes the show will have or who will star in it.
Susanne Simpson, the executive producer of PBS Masterpiece, revealed in a 2019 interview with Town & Country that Season 2 will focus on the year 1940 and how World War II affected people throughout the United Kingdom and Europe during that pivotal period. Additionally, Bowker has already previewed several of the big storylines for the upcoming season. “There will be a meeting between Kasia [Zofia Wichlacz] and Lois [Julia Brown] in Season 2, and the aftermath from that meeting, I believe, will be exciting and engaging for everyone,” he stated.
“Historically speaking, Season 2 will begin with the blitz in the northwest of England,” Bowker explained further. “And North Africa will be a major battleground in the coming years. In this episode, we’ll learn more about Webster’s [Brian J. Smith] family background. After crossing a line, Nancy [Helen Hunt] will be forced to leave Berlin in the beginning of the series, and we will learn more about Nancy besides that. She will almost certainly be in the Soviet Union for a portion of it.”
He also stated that after accepting Vernon’s proposal at the end of Season 1, Lois will be trapped in a “Bronte-Esque, loveless marriage with Vernon.” A marriage without love, in the eyes of Lois (Arthur Darvill), promises security for her and her daughter; nonetheless, Lois’s strong and independent nature may suffer as a result of the relationship.
