Romantics rejoice! A second series of love stories, inspired by the New York Time column, is coming in 2020.

Carney has revealed that season two will take the series into "new cities and words" and that everyone involved in the series is "dizzy with possibilities".

"Since its debut just last week, the reaction to Modern Love from viewers has been incredible. It’s a show with so much emotion and warmth – every episode touches the heart in a different way," said Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios.

"We’re so excited we’ll be able to bring our global Prime Video customers more of the beautiful stories of romance, friendship, and family from Modern Love."

When is Modern Love season two released?

Amazon has confirmed work on season two is already underway and that it will be released in 2020.

We can probably expect it to arrive at a similar time to season one, which was released in October.

What is Modern Love based on?

Modern Love is based on the weekly column in The New York Times, and podcast, that explore the joys and tribulations of love.
The column has headlines like ‘He’s Your Destiny. Just Be Patient’, ‘Alexa? Please Ignore My Husband’ and ‘It’s Not You, It’s Men.’

According to Vogue, one of the show’s stories is the "14-year-long and staggeringly tumultuous” relationship of Justin McLeod - the creator of dating app 'Hinge' - and his now-wife.

Daniel Jones, editor of the Modern Love column, The New York Times: "I couldn't be prouder of this show, and the global outpouring of emotion has frankly blown me away. John Carney managed to honour the complexity of the original column while making a series that’s beautiful, upbeat and hopeful. I can't wait to get to work on season two."

Who will be in the cast of Modern Love season two

No cast for the second season episodes have been confirmed yet, but if it's even half as star-studded as season one, we can expect something very special.

Among the first season stars are...*takes deep breath*... Jane Alexander (The Good Fight), Sofia Boutella (Kingsman: The Secret Service), Gary Carr (The Deuce,Downton Abbey), Olivia Cooke Ready Player One), Emmy Award nominee Brandon Victor Dixon (Power), Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (30 Rock), Tony Award winner John Gallagher, Jr. (The Newsroom), Academy Award nominee Andy Garcia (Ocean’s Eleven), Emmy Award winner Julia Garner (Ozark), Brandon Kyle Goodman (Plus One), Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway (Ocean’s Eight), Academy Award nominee Catherine Keener (Get Out), Caitlin McGee (Bluff City Law), Cristin Milioti (Black Mirror), Academy Award nominee Dev Pate (Lion), Laurentiu Possa (Killing Eve), James Saito (Always Be My Maybe), Andrew Scott (Fleabag), Emmy Award nominee John Slattery (Mad Men) and Shea Whigham (Homecoming). Phew.

Hopefully we expect some more Hollywood A-listers to follow in Anne Hathaway's footsteps and perhaps after she recently signed a creative deal with Amazon to work on new projects, Fleabag's Phoebe Waller Bridge could be tempted to take part. The sky is the limit when it comes to dream casting this show
