The epic World War II drama “World on Fire” from BBC and PBS’ Masterpiece Theater is a home run. At the outbreak of the war in 1939, the star-studded series centres on characters in far-flung locales like Manchester, Warsaw, Berlin, and Paris. Fans of “World on Fire” have been impatiently anticipating information about Season 2 ever since Season 1 of the show debuted on PBS in the spring of 2020 after initially airing in Europe in September 2019.
The good news is that Season 2 of “World on Fire” is unquestionably happening, despite the pandemic’s delay in production. Peter Bowker, the show’s creator, said to Radio Times in an interview from 2019 that he has the stories of the characters planned out over six seasons. I am aware of what happens to the principal characters over six series, he claimed. “People frequently ask, “What happens in series four, episode three?” when you pitch a show. How does this character fare? You must be aware of it and avoid being English about it.”
Of course, it doesn’t guarantee that the drama will air for six seasons, but fans may take heart in the fact that Season 2 is unquestionably in the works. Bowker and the cast have even shared a few details about what viewers can look forward to when the programme finally comes to our screens.
Season 2 is confirmed, and so are some plot points
The epidemic caused the production schedule for “World on Fire” and numerous other shows and films to be changed.
No official release date for Season 2 has yet been revealed, however it was stated that filming would begin in the summer of 2021 in the comments area of an Instagram post from the show’s official account in October 2020. In a similar manner, the PBS Masterpiece Theater website announced that “World on Fire” will return for a second season, but added that it is “too early” to specify how many episodes it will feature or the specific cast.
Season 2 of PBS Masterpiece will focus on the year 1940 and how World War II affected people in the U.K. and throughout Europe at that crucial period, executive producer Susanne Simpson revealed in a 2019 interview with Town & Country. Furthermore, Bowker has already hinted at the main plotlines for the upcoming season. Kasia [Zofia Wichlacz] and Lois [Julia Brown] will meet in Season 2, and the consequences of that, he said, “will be engaging and fascinating for everyone.”
Season 2 will officially begin with the blitz in the Northwest of England, according to Bowker. “Additionally, the battleground will largely be in North Africa. We’ll learn more about Brian J. Smith’s [Webster’s] ancestry. Near the beginning of the series, Nancy [Helen Hunt] will finally be forced to leave Berlin due to transgressing a moral boundary, and we will also learn more about Nancy. She will undoubtedly spend some of it in the Soviet Union.”
He also predicted that after accepting his marriage proposal at the end of Season 1, Lois would experience a “Bronte-esque, loveless marriage with Vernon.” Although Vernon (Arthur Darvill) promises security for Lois and her daughter, a union without love could have a negative impact on her tenacious and self-reliant nature.
