The Netflix LGBTQ+ drama Young Royals has officially announced it will be returning for another season.
Young Royals is making its return and we couldn’t be any more excited! For those that aren’t familiar with the series, Young Royal is a Swedish coming-of-age series that has been praised for its depiction of same-sex romance and representation.
The first season of the drama premiered on July 1 and quickly became an online hit. Directed by Rojda Sekersöz and Erika Calmeyer, the Swedish show follows the life of Prince Wilhelm (Edvin Ryding).
Wilhelm attends a prestigious boarding school Hillerska and begins to discover his true identity. The 16-year-old finds his true self and becomes torn between duties towards the throne and his heart.
While an official cast list has not been announced, fans are expecting Ryding to reprise his role as Prince Wilhelm. We can also exceed to see Omar Rudberg return as Simon, Malte Gårdinger as August, Frida Argento as Sara, Nikita Uggla as Felice, and more.
Following the explosive ending of season one, there has been speculation of what viewers can expect from the new season.
Omar Rudberg (who plays Simon aka Wilhelm’s love interest) suggested the new season is “going to get crazy.”
“I actually don’t know what is going to happen,” said Omar told The Mud Mag. “But if you see the series and think of what it reveals about the characters at the end of the series, I feel like there is a lot that is going to happen. If there is going to be a season 2, and I really hope that there is, I think it would be amazing. The drama is going up another level, it’s going to get crazy.”
