Has The English been renewed for Season 2? Here’s what we know:

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!

  1. Yes, definitely A new season would be wonderful I love Eli and I love Cornelia I think it’s her name What I would also like is for the screen to not be so black in some of the scenes. there was so much I couldn’t see. Please bring aseries 2.

  2. What a spectacular and brilliant series. BRAVO. Such a love connection was so refreshing to see on the screen, the photography and music splendid. Bring them both back, there are 13 between when she dies.

  3. Excellent series!! We were disappointed to hear there were only six episodes!! Please Renew!!!

  4. Found by accident but thoroughly enjoy this series hoping it continues into many more seasons. Love period based shows. Another great one that was disappointed in not seeing anymore was “Jamestown ” Critics don’t always get it right but agree with the public here. Public loves these type shows.. Plz renew this Amazon & BBC. Mr. Spencer and Ms. Blunt are great actors and performance is award winning. As well as supporting cast. Bravo!

  5. These people have said it all, I too would love to see another season. Surely it had to be profitable, there has not been another western this good since Bonanza.

  6. I liked it a lot, but as a senior citizen, i didn’t follow some of the content. Is this a senior moment thing or what? eg who was the boy in the final episode? Was her her son from her union with Eli, or was he the boy she saved from the Buffalo Gun?

  7. I agree with all of the above comments. Blunt and Spencer are both phenomenal and the chemistry is Amazing. They both need to be brought back and reunited. I grew up watching westerns and this hands down beats all of them! Dare I say even Duke movies?

  8. Better than Yellowstone 1883 (And I thought IT was good)! It’s like a good book you cannot put down. Please consider a second season (and More)!

  9. I absolutely LOVED all 6 episodes. PLEASE let us have another series. The acting, scenery, costumes, storyline were all amazing. Cornelia and Eli MUST be reunited somehow!!!! There is a time gap of 13 years between the last scene with Cornelia and Eli and when she meets White Moon in Windsor. Surely we can fill that in?

  10. What a series! So many cruel twists but stellar performances from Blunt and Spencer. Surely we could pick up Eli’s story again and Cornelia’s recovery (miraculous though it would be) to enable a reunion. Please? Bravo.

  11. We loved it binge watched it, excellent acting needs more series like these would love series two

  12. Loved the series and the storyline. Hoping to have a continuation into another season.

  13. I fell in love with this series. It was wonderful. The actors, cinematography, direction and script were amazing. I really need the second season.

  14. I’m not a traditional western fan, and yet some of them get me. This one – is the epitome of what this genre should be. I love the rawness and realness of it all. The cinematography is phenomenal. The acting beyond superb. The tension palpable. The script is perfection. The grief and emotion so exquisite.

    I am deeply hopeful that this will carry forward and there are so many stories that could keep unfolding and being told.

    Yes please – 100% – BRING IT ON, WE WANT MORE!!

    They will have a loyal following for any more seasons they’d like to produce.

  15. This is what you want a western to be. This is what you want to see regarding Indians; white mean the brutality of both without soundbites. Just the reality of it all. Please bring back both Locke and Wipp into this dusty harsh land who together would make it better. Bravo Blunt/Spenser!

  16. Spencer & Blunt have more chemistry in thier pinky toe then other characters in any other show. Including Yellowstone. Where has Chaske Spencer been before? A most quietly charismatic performance by both with a wicked ensemble.

  17. Better than Yellowstone. I’d like to see it continue. So many villains and just unusual “characters”. A very emotionally consuming series with great acting. Bring it back.

  18. Excellent writing and acting; beautiful filming. By far the best series I’ve seen in a long time- especially In my search for good westerns. There is so much talent in every aspect of this series. Please, please please let it continue….

  19. Well written limited series. Would love to see more but can’t imagine how they could tie it together.

  20. I loved the series..love love love the characters..i could not stop watching.
    .love Eli and Cornelia..but i want her cured

  21. Excellent story and actors. The best series I’ve watched ever! Please renew this for another season. It will be hard to top this story.

  22. Loved it! I want More! It was written well but cut short leaving a lot left to be learned, seen and said by the characters! Needs to be a second Season!!! It’s disappointing that someone with so much talent to write this didn’t carry it through and left fans hanging for more!

  23. It’s a great show there aren’t many westerns left anymore. It makes me so excited to see each episode. I don’t want to stop watching it the excellent series don’t want it to end please it’s so good. And the actors are fantastic. Please keep this series going please
