Modern Love 2 – release date, cast and all the other important need-to-know information

Season two of ‘Modern Love’ will “dig deep into what it means to love in this complicated world.”

Based on the uber-popular New York Times column of the same name, Modern Love is a series that – as the name suggests – is all about modern love. Building upon many of the column’s most talked-about tales, each episode is 30 or so minutes long and gives viewers a more fleshed-out version of the story the column originally posted. 

Heartwarming and oftentimes just as heart-wrenching, the eight-part anthology series has proven to be quite a hit. So much so that a second season is already in the works. 

Here’s what we know so far.

Just like season one, it will have a stellar cast.

Season one impressed with its stacked line-up of Hollywood heavyweights – the likes of which included Anne Hathaway, Andy García, Dev Patel, and Tina Fey. Season two promises to bring more of the same with some of the big names already confirmed ranging from Tobias Menzies of The Crown, Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington, Anna Paquin, and Minnie Driver amongst others.  

Some of it was filmed in Ireland.

Maybe you knew this, maybe you didn’t, but part of the series will be set in Dublin’s fair city. Headed up by award-winning director John Carney, he also serves as showrunner and executive producer for the series. A proud Dubliner himself, Carney was keen to have one episode take place on home soil – partly because of the logistics involved (it was easier for him to film here than NY due to Covid restrictions), partly because he wanted to ensure the second season introduced the audience to different stories than the first and partly because Ireland is just bloody brilliant… I’m adlibbing the last one, but I reckon he’d agree. 

Commenting that they’re “so excited” to be working on a second season of the show, Carney continued by saying, “with so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I’m so appreciative to be a part of making that happen.”

Filming took place in the capital earlier this year, with Sing Street stars Jack Reynor and Lucy Boynton reuniting for the project. Other episodes will be set in Albany, New York City, Schenectady (New York), and Troy (also New York). 

It will be released this summer.

Sooner than I was expecting if I’m honest. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that the series will hit our laptop screens on Friday, August 13. Coming exclusively to Amazon Prime Video, it’s not yet known what specific entries will see their love stories play out on screen but that’s all part of the fun, I suppose. Oh, and all eight episodes will be released at once so try not to watch it all at once… guaranteed that’s easier said than done.

Rewatch the season one trailer below to get you up to speed – if you haven’t binged it yet, I highly, highly recommend you do so.
