Apple TV+ has officially announced the renewal of the captivating period drama, “The Buccaneers,” based on Edith Wharton’s intriguing yet unfinished novel from the 1930s. This announcement is thrilling news for fans worldwide who have fallen in love with the vibrant characters brought to life by the stellar cast.
Following a successful first season, “The Buccaneers” is set to return for a second season, promising to delve deeper into the smart, joyful, and sometimes messy sisterhood of young American women who ventured into 1870s London, sparking a cultural clash in the land of the stiff upper lip.
Expressing her enthusiasm, series creator Katherine Jakeways shared, “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.” Jakeways also acknowledged the anticipation among viewers, stating, “We know season one left audiences desperate to know what’s next for our buccaneers, so I’m delighted to have the opportunity to explore the further adventures of this smart, joyful, messy sisterhood.”
Edith Wharton initiated the writing of her novel in the 1930s, leaving behind a detailed outline when she passed away before completing it. The unfinished manuscript was published in 1938, a year after her death. In 1993, Marion Mainwaring took on the task of completing the manuscript, allowing Wharton’s vision to be fully realized.
The first season of “The Buccaneers” unfolded as an eight-part adaptation of Wharton’s unfinished novel, initially revealed by Apple TV+ in 2022. The series boasts a stellar cast featuring Kristine Froseth, Alisha Boe, Josie Totah, Aubri Ibrag, Imogen Waterhouse, and Mia Threapleton, captivating audiences with exceptional performances.
