Since Downton Abbey Concluded in 2015, British Period Dramas Haven’t Been the Same, but The Real Heads Know that The Drama Never Stopped—it Simply Relocated to America. Oscar-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes Wrapped up His Work with The Crawley Family and Focused on The World of Affluent New Yorkers in The 1880s with The Gilded Age. The show debuted on HBO in January 2022 and Is Currently Awaiting Word on A Season 3 Renewal.
The very high-gloss, high-glamour, high-consumerist America that would flower with Hollywood and all these various other aspects was being laid and rooted in the Gilded Age, in those super-prosperous years after the end of the Civil War, Fellowes explained to The Hollywood Reporter after the Season 1 finale in March 2022. “I think the Gilded Age period was a precursor of 20th-century America,” Fellowes said. “I think American history is very rich.” “People of the Gilded Age exuded confidence and self-belief, believing in their superiority.” To see how these people viewed themselves—as giants and the people of the present—you only need to visit a few of New York’s Gilded Age buildings. And it all contributed to the century they would rule over.
The lavish series tracks a mix of real and fictional characters as they vie for prestige in New York City’s upper society, including Carrie Coon’s aspirational Mrs. Russell and Donna Murphy’s Mrs. Astor. The show has attracted a lot of attention on social media because of its intricate costumes, dramatic story twists, and star-studded cast—which includes an astonishing number of Broadway veterans—even though it isn’t quite the cultural phenomenon that Downton Abbey was.
The Gilded Age writer Sonja Warfield isn’t concerned about coming up with fresh ideas for more episodes even though HBO hasn’t yet renewed the show for a third season. “So much of history [would be appropriate for the show],” she remarked in November 2023 to Town & Country. “We found treasures for Season 2 that contribute to the stories of our characters, and if we’re fortunate enough to get a third season, there are a ton of other things we could explore. We had Thomas Edison’s lights in season one, the Tuskegee Institute in season two, and we’ll find out what that is in season three.
What Happened at the End of The Gilded Age Season 2?
There were many amazing moments in the Gilded Age season 2 finale. When the Duke of Bellingham finally decided to side with the Met over the Academy, Bertha finally won the opera war with Mrs. Astor.
Marian ended her relationship with Dashiell. Marian and Larry planted a tender kiss after an amazing evening at the Met. Everything was very chaste back then. Instead of kissing someone, you shook hands or did something similar. I therefore asked Julian [Fellowes] if Marian and Larry could please share a kiss at the end of the season because I wanted them to. He fulfilled my wish, Sonja said to EW.
The last moments of the episode revealed the final twist. Ada told Agnes, Oscar, and Marian that Luke had left her a letter in his will. His estate was named to her as the only heir. She’s now extremely wealthy because his grandfather amassed a fortune in the textile industry. The Van Rhijn family was getting ready to sell their house after Oscar lost the family fortune. Nothing will change right now, but the dynamics of power in the Van Rhijn household have undoubtedly changed.
“The Gilded Age” is available for streaming on the HBO Max platform in the United States. However, streaming availability can change, and new platforms may have acquired the rights since then.
