‘Young Royals’ Season 2 Release Date Is Confirmed
Young Royals Season 2 is scheduled to release on November 1, 2022, exclusively on Netflix. That’s pretty soon, right? Plus there are going to be heartbreaks and a lot of happenings.
The synopsis of the new season reads, “A winter break has passed, and Prince Wilhelm and the rest of his classmates are back at Hillerska. When Wilhelm tries to take revenge on August, and win back Simon’s trust, he creates problems that threaten the entire monarchy.”
Young Royals Season 2 Will Be Surprising
“I had a lot of fun during season one and, ahead of season two, I was pretty anxious beforehand because I had a long period of time where I didn’t understand why he [Wilhelm] did what he did this season,” Ryding explained to an outlet while hinting towards a different season.
He added, “I thought, ‘How will I be able to defend this, as an actor?’ But then I realized I shouldn’t defend this. This is Wilhelm, he’s coming from this place and this is the way he reacts to it. Once I figured that out, it was super fun.
I think people will be like, ‘What? Simon actually did that?! I never thought that about Simon.’ But at the same time, it’s really beautiful to show that people make mistakes and nobody’s perfect, not even Simon.”
‘Young Royals’ Season 2 Trailer Display Prince Wilhelm & Simon Going Through Heartbreak
When you lose yourself, you find what matters!
Wilhelm fears that his Crown Prince title will cost him everything we care about in the trailer and season as he struggles to acknowledge his newfound royal duties. “Dear Hillerska students,” the season begins. Let me welcome you all to the new year.”
But they have no idea that the new year will bring new hurdles. The trailer depicts the two’s heartbreak and the trust issues they are dealing with. It’s actually a gloomy trailer displaying that one of them ends up feeling okay because of a little space.
It later hinted at a little reunion between Wilhelm and Simon, but at what cost? There are intense confrontations, tensions, and awkwardness in the air. At the end of the trailer we see Simon and Wilhelm hugging when Wilhelm asks “What will happen to us?”
