‘Young Royals’ was one of the biggest and most pleasant surprises of Netflix’s summer 2021 lineup. The Swedish show follows Prince Wilhelm as he navigates life at an elite boarding school – and falls in love with one of his fellow students.
It’s delightfully fanfic-y and surprisingly heartwarming. The characters are incredibly complex and their relationships interesting. We wrote a whole post about why we think people should watch it back when it first came out, and we stand by everything we said.
Unsurprisingly, the show soon gained a huge following online. And thanks to that following, we are now getting a season 2!
After hinting at in on social media, the cast confirmed earlier today that the show has officially been renewed at Netflix, with a second season set to premiere in 2022.
Season 1 of Young Royals left us with plenty of potential material for a season 2. Obviously, we can’t wait to see what will happen to Simon and Wilhelm after their heartbreaking ending. Will we see Wilhelm figuring out what he wants on his own, away from Simon? How will Simon deal with what happened in the last season? And then there’s everything happening with Sara, Felice and August.
Here’s what we do know: we trust everyone involved in Young Royals, and we cannot wait for this next season.
