The Pursuit of Love is a British romantic drama television series written and directed by Emily Mortimer. This drama series was based on a 1945 novel, The Pursuit of Love written by Nancy Mitford. Two television series have also been adapted from this novel. The first season of this series was released in May 2021. Since then, the fans have been eagerly anticipating the release of The Pursuit of Love Season 2.
The story of The Pursuit of Love focuses on the life of two cousins, Linda Radlett and Fanny Logan. They showcased to us the growing up of these two girls experiencing love and struggles. However, the screenplay of the series moved hastily to wrap up the storyline of The Pursuit of Love Season 2.
BBC had announced The Pursuit of Love in December 2019 and was supposed to premiere in 2020 but got delayed due to the outbreak of the Covid-19 Virus. It was finally released in May 2021. The first season comprised only three episodes which brings this drama series under the category of a mini-series. The first season wasn’t enough for the fans and they are craving The Pursuit of Love Season 2. This article will cover every detail and information you might need regarding the release of The Pursuit of Love Season 2.
The Pursuit of Love Season 2 Plot Speculation
The story of The Pursuit of Love was set in the era of the 1930s and 40s. The story is centred on two cousins, Fanny Logan and Linda Radlett. They showcased the growing up of these two sisters through three episodes.
Linda Radlett was an eccentric girl with weird expectations. On the other hand, Fanny was more of a sophisticated person grown up in a well-to-do family. They both wanted to escape the walls of their ancestral home when they break young.
The two sisters aspired to marry a financially rich husband when they enter adulthood. They wanted to raise a family in accordance with British culture. However, the two were quite different and their expectations were ways apart.
As of now, there is no brief or synopsis which could lead us into the storyline or plot of The Pursuit of Love Season 2. Without any precise detail, it would be irrational to predict a storyline for the new season of this romantic drama. However, we can still speculate based on the first season.
The first season was really short and covered the adult life of Fanny and Linda. We suppose that The Pursuit of Love Season 2 might explore the individual lives of both Fanny and Linda, intently.
The Pursuit of Love Season 2 Cast and Characters
The official cast for The Pursuit of Love Season 2 is not yet revealed by the makers. We expect that the new season might retain most of its characters from the first season. The characters whom we suppose to return in The Pursuit of Season 2 are –
- Lily James as Linda Radlett. She was the main lead of The Pursuit of Love who spent most of her early life locked in her father’s ancestral home. She was not able to receive any education and make some friends during her childhood. She wished to escape from her boring life after marrying a rich person.

- Dominic Wes as Matthew Radlett. Matthew was the father of Linda. He was extremely strict in terms of raising his children. He kept them locked in his ancestral home and was strictly against the need for education for women. This is why he didn’t let Linda attend school during her childhood and kept her deprived of basic education.
