You loved the first season and were wondering when The Essex Serpent season 2 will be released? Your answer is in our article!
Inspired by Sarah Perry’s book, The Essex Serpent contains love and reflects an era. The series, which entered our lives on Apple TV + on May 13, 2022, does not only contain love, but also a mystery production! The production, which successfully reflects the old period to us, has a score of 6.4 on IMDb, even though it has just been released. The Essex Serpent is adapted from the novel and turned into a screenplay by Anna Symon and directed by Clio Barnard. With its 6 episode 1 season, this mini-series seems to be talked about more!
Let’s both answer the questions about the series and find out when The Essex Serpent Season 2 will be released!
The Essex Serpent Season 2 Release Date
The Essex Serpent Season 2 doesn’t have a definitively confirmed release date yet, but both the ending of the 1st season and the course of the story suggest The Essex Serpent Season 2 will be released. Both the 1st season episodes of the series have high ratings, the cast of The Essex Serpent is very successful and lives their roles, and the producer is eager for a new season! With all that said, there doesn’t seem to be a reason why The Essex Serpent Season 2 shouldn’t be released. If The Essex Serpent Season 2 arrives, we think we’ll watch it in the spring of 2023. If that happens, filming could begin in late summer of 2022.
What is the story of The Essex Serpent?
Let’s witness the story of the 1st season before The Essex Serpent Season 2 and give a small summary.
We witness the story around there, in the series that reflects the England of the 1893 period. Cora Seaborne is newly divorced and heading to Essex to start a new life for herself. It’s a bit difficult to make this decision because being a newly divorced person was not tolerated by society at the time, but Cora is a strong and self-developed woman and she doesn’t care about what is said about her.
But there is a problem in Essex! The village is very tense because it is rumored that the Essex Serpent, who has not appeared for years, has reappeared and has been spotted by some villagers. A normal person is afraid when such a situation occurs in the place he goes and wants to escape from there, right? In Cora, on the other hand, the situation is the opposite, she wants to know everything that happened before and now, and she starts researching the Essex Serpent.
While she is doing this, Will Ransome, the clergyman she met on the first day she went to Essex, helps her there. Will Ransome does not believe in the existence of such a creature and firmly adheres to the idea that the people are haunted by evil spirits. But Cora is an open-minded woman who sticks to science. These two have sweet discussions as they continue their research. They both quarrel and get closer. Finally, we witness the love story of these two opposing people.
Where is The Essex Serpent being shot?
In the production, where a great effort was made to reflect the theme of the 1890s, both the clothes and the venues were carefully selected. Most of the locations were shot in a 19th century park in Maldon, England. In addition, many environments of the historic city center, including the High Street, are also included in the series. The most striking thing for us is the courthouse named The Moot Hall, which has been preserved since the 15th century. It has such beautiful architecture!
We hope to witness more of these beautiful and historic England venues in The Essex Serpent Season 2!
