The Empress, the most popular German original since Barbarians, is off to a fantastic start on Netflix. The German historical drama’s second season has been picked up by Netflix after few weeks of streaming. We’ll go over all the information you require regarding The Empress’s second season on Netflix. Based on the early years and romance of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, Katharina Eyssen’s historical romance drama series The Empress is a German Netflix Original. Lena Stahl, Janna Maria Nandzik, and Bernd Lange all contributed to the series’ writing. The series is co-directed by Katrin Gebbe and Florian Cossen. Elisabeth Wittlebach marries Franz Joseph, the Austrian Emperor, at the youthful age of sixteen. Elisabeth must fight for her voice in court and take on the role of the head of a faltering empire because she is at war with both her mother-in-law and court life.
Netflix renewal status of The Empress season 2
It took a little more than 6 weeks, but Netflix has renewed The Empress for a second season. The Empress had a strong start on Netflix. Within the first two weeks of its release, the series had over 106,000,000 million hours viewed and was the most-watched non-English language series on Netflix for at least a week. To date, the series has received 159,800,000 million hours of viewing time on Netflix.
What can we expect from The Empress’s second season?
There are still many exciting years in Empress Elisabeth’s long life that we haven’t even begun to scratch the surface of. Elisabeth will soon give birth to Archduchess Sophie of Austria, the first of her four children. Although the birth of her first child was one of Elisabeth’s proudest moments, it also caused her to disagree with her mother-in-law, Princess Sophie. Princess Sophie believed that the Empress was too young to raise the children and took it upon herself to do so.
Elisabeth finally succeeded in persuading her husband, Emporer Franz, that she would be permitted to bring her children along on her travels after a number of months of opposition. Sadly, her daughter, Archduchess Sophie, passed away from a high fever while she was touring Hungary. The passing of Archduchess Sophie only strengthened Princess Sophie’s vow to raise the Emperor’s grandchildren rather than the Empress’s.
Elisabeth’s surviving children would all experience a distant mother who, although perhaps not intentionally unkind, was undoubtedly “unmotherly” as they grew up. In the case of Emporer Franz, the birth of his first child and his wife’s acts reduced nationalist and revolutionary spirit. But eventually European unrest will lead to war in Austria. The second season will probably focus on Elisabeth’s pregnancy and the first few years of motherhood up until the devastating loss of her firstborn child.
Any historical drama will have a difficult time replacing The Crown, a phenomenally popular Netflix original series. The Empress, on the other hand, has a good chance of becoming the non-English equivalent. There could be many seasons of The Empress in the future because there are still many years of Elisabeth’s life to investigate.
