Following the conclusion of the six-episode season, fans will be curious to know the status of a potential season 2. As of May 18, 2024, the series has been renewed for a second season by Prime Video following its record-breaking viewing numbers. The show has become the streamer’s most watched international show of all time, occupying number 1 on Prime Video’s lists in more than 120 countries. While a release date hasn’t been announced yet, it is safe to assume season 2 of Maxton Hall will not premiere before 2025.

The ending of season one had left scope for a potential season two, as the lead characters’ storylines ended on a contrasting note. While Ruby Bell (Harriet Herbig-Matten) is elated after nailing her Oxford interview and spends time with her family, telling them tales of her trip, James Beaufort (Damian Hardung) faces a rude awakening as his father discloses that he has lost his mother due to a stroke. James attacks his father in a fit of rage after hearing the news, and this incident could prove to be a pivotal point in his character arc ahead of season 2.

The lead pair will be expected to reprise their roles, and the majority of main characters that appeared in season 1 are likely to be a part of season 2. The only exception is Cordelia (Clelia Sarto), James and Lydia’s (Sonja Weiber) mother, who passes away in season 1. Mortimer (Fedja Van Huet), Alistair (Justus Reisner), Lin (Andrea Guo), Cyril (Ben Felipe), Ember (Runa Greiner), Helen (Julia Maria Kohler), and Angus (Martin Neuhaus) are likely to return, and the addition of a few fresh faces should be expected too.

Maxton Hall is an adaptation of the Mona Kasten book Save Me, which is part of a trilogy that also includes Save You and Save Us. The first season of Maxton Hall is available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.
