Miss Scarlet and The Duke season 2: Release date
It’s unknown when Miss Scarlet and The Duke will return for a second season. It’s still very early days since the series got the green light for a second outing a few months ago.
Speaking to IndieWire, Rachael explained that the current health situation has delayed the filming and production of the next series.
“We filmed in 2019 and wrapped in September,” Rachael said. “I was in Ireland finishing post-production and we delivered [the series] in January. So [COVID] wasn’t an issue at all at the time, nobody had even heard of it at that point.”
