Renewed Or Cancelled?
Hugo Blick’s The English, a BBC and Prime Video western drama miniseries starring Emily Blunt and Chaske Spencer, captivated many viewers with its sweeping drama and gripping revenge plotline.
If you’ve already finished the historical series, you may be wondering if it’s going to make a return. Has The English been renewed for a second season? Here’s what we know:
What is ‘The English’ about?
The English follows Cornelia Locke (Emily Blunt) as she travels to Wyoming in order to kill the man responsible for her son’s death. On the way, she meets Eli Whipp (Chaske Spencer), a Pawnee ex-cavalry scout looking to claim a piece of his Nebraska homeland.
The story alternates between their journey and the challenges faced by Englishman Thomas Trafford (Tom Hughes). Trafford attempts to make it in America by cattle-ranching, but faces sabotage at every turn.
We have extensive coverage of The English across the site, including our extensive episode recaps.
Will there be a season 2 of ‘The English’?
At the time of writing, The English has not been renewed for a second season. Given that the show is structured like a limited series, it will likely not be renewed.
The English has had good reception from audiences and critics, however. If it’s profitable enough, BBC and Amazon Studios could potentially partner with Hugo Blick again for another season.
What we know about season 2 so far:
Nothing is known about season 2 yet, as BBC and Amazon Prime have not green-lit a sequel.
While we don’t think The English will be renewed, there’s still potential to further flesh out the historical series. If it is renewed, the show could follow Eli or Cornelia in years before the time skip at the end of season 1. Or perhaps a second season could introduce new characters.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will not be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known!
