The show revolves around the love for football and its foundation in nineteenth-century England. The six-episode long docuseries last an average of 45-minutes each; with each episode entailing a unique angle that led to the birth of modern football as we know of it today.
The finale pays a fitting tribute to Fergus Sutter and Jimmy Love, founders of modern football, and shatters the centuries-old class divide prevalent in 19th century England.
The English Game Season 2
The English Game premiered on Netflix on 20th March 2020. And therefore, it will take up to six months for the streaming giant to renew the series. As of now, there’s only vested fans interest in The English Game Season 2 and no official statement forward.
In addition to the aforementioned details, The English Game Season 2 is only expected to premiere on Netflix in 2021. But once the Netflix gives the show a go-ahead, fans will have no chill.
The English Game Season 2 Will Take Some Months Before Its Renewal
The football-centric docuseries might take some decent amount of time before its renewal as the maker of the show is presently caught with another project.
Yes, Julian Fellowes is currently overstretched with his ongoing project with HBO’s The Gilded Age. The 10-part series is a spectacular take on the life back in 1885 in New York. It will be the first time that Fellowes will move far west leaving the UK.
The production of the series has been stalled due to the far-stretching impact of the ongoing novel coronavirus. Thus, leading to a delay in the filming by at least two months.
With respect to that, expect The English Game Season 2’s renewal only after a certain months of concrete work on The Gilded Age.
The English Game Season 2: What to expect
Season 1 of The English Game embarked on a long journey on the birth of modern football. However, with that, it also delved into the class divide and the rights of women in that age. Thus, Season 2 can focus on other social issues prevalent in that age and time. For example, the FA’s (Football Association) ban on women playing the sport from 1921 to 1971.
Hence, for any sports lover, Season 2 can bring an interesting take on other aspects related to football.
