When was Modern Love season two confirmed?

Announcing the exciting news that will see more heartbreak heading our way, Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios said in November 2019:

“Since its debut just last week, the reaction to Modern Love from viewers has been incredible. It’s a show with so much emotion and warmth – every episode touches the heart in a different way. We’re so excited we’ll be able to bring our global Prime Video customers more of the beautiful stories of romance, friendship, and family from Modern Love.”

John Carney - the writer, director and executive producer of Modern Love – will return for the second series. He said:

"Being given a green light to proceed with Modern Love is a great opportunity for us to continue to tell stories of love, while opening up the series into new cities and worlds. The possibilities are truly endless. Subsequent seasons can really branch out and dig deep into what it means to love in this complicated world. It’s incredible news for everyone involved in the series, and we are dizzy with the possibilities moving forward."

He later added:

"We’re so excited to bring a second season of this series to life and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most. 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."

What will happen in Modern Love season 2?

The series is based on The New York Times' 'Modern Love' column, an exploration of all different kinds of love and relationships, but it's unclear which entries have been selected for the next instalment.

What we do know, though, is that the series has been filmed all over the world, with episodes set in Albany, New York and Dublin.

When will Modern Love season 2 be released?

Modern Love season two will launch on Prime Video "later this year" in 2021, in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.

Agh. The second series of Modern Love feels so close yet so far :--(
