Everyone enjoys excellent steamy historical drama, and Netflix is eager to provide them for us. This time, the streamer has transported us to the year 1854, when a disobedient princess marries Emperor Franz Joseph and ascends to the position of Empress of Austria, entering the world of politics at the court of Vienna.
Due to her life’s ups and downs (mainly downs, regrettably), the struggles of the young “Sisi” (or “Sissi,” depending on who you ask) in the centre of the Habsburg empire have long been a hot topic in Austrian and German history. As a result, Sommerhaus Serien for Netflix Germany decided to adopt her narrative for television.
And what’s this? The network has had tremendous success with it.
Even if Netflix hasn’t approved season two, it’s only a matter of time. There are many lessons to be learned from the unexpected cliffhanger, and opulent historical dramas with royal themes frequently do well on Netflix. Just ask Bridgerton or The Crown.
What can we anticipate from the upcoming season, and when can we expect it, given that? Here is all we know so far about season two of The Empress.
The Empress season 2 Release date
Keep your horses and carriages in place. The Empress merely made its debut on September 29, so it’s far too early to judge whether or not it will be renewed for a second season.
Its return is based on ratings, like most Netflix programmes. So if you want to watch more, take a seat and select “next episode.”
Remember that it took Netflix an entire month after a massive debut in December 2020. Don’t worry just yet. We’re here to announce Bridgerton’s renewal.
The cast of The Empress season 2
If The Empress does return, Devrim Lingnau will almost probably resume her role as Elisabeth von Wittelsbach, also known as Sisi/Sissi. What is The Empress without The Empress, after all?
We would anticipate seeing the following people join her:
1. Phillip Froissant will act as Emperor Franz Joseph
2. Melika Foroutan will be here as Sophia
3. Elisa Schlott for sure asHelene
4. Johannes Nussbaum here as Archduke Maximilian
5. Jördis Triebel acting as Princess Ludovika
6. Hanna Hilsdorf also playing as Amalia
7. Svenja Jung will be Louise
8. Raymond Tarabay will be Ambassadeur De Bourqueney
There is always a chance that some fresh people will come on board.
The plot of The Empress season 2
The Empress ends with Elisabeth imprisoned inside the palace walls for violating royal protocol (acting humanely) after visiting the iron plant and lending a little girl some money in need of her shoes.
Elisabeth slips into despair as she loses all faith that anything would be done to save the needy. She joins Franz’s brother Maximillian in partying the days away, further tarnishing her reputation.
Elisabeth should return to Bavaria, according to Archduchess Sophia, who is obviously at her wit’s end with the rebellious Empress, and Franz, who gets into a passionate dispute with his wife and claims that she is having relations with his brother. However, Elisabeth learns she is pregnant at last before Franz tells her to go. Unfortunately, the Empress is devastated and decides not to tell her husband the news.
When Elisabeth is ready to leave, a sizable, enraged crowd that had been assembling at the palace gates to criticise the Emperor has completely blocked the exit. Elisabeth requests that the gates be opened even if the guards wish to turn the carriage around.
The Empress greets the crowd and says, “I see you,” before informing them that she is expecting a child while Franz and Sophia look on.
Will her actions persuade the public? Is she able to forgive Franz? Now that she is expecting, how does Sophia plan to treat her?
We anticipate getting all these answers if Netflix approves it in season two.
We’re afraid not anytime soon. The Empress’ first season has only recently debuted on Netflix, and there hasn’t been any word about a season two return or even a sneak peek because without filming, there is no footage.
But keep checking back here, and we’ll let you know as soon as we learn any new information.
