The first season premiered in 2019 and featured Anne Hathaway, Tina Fey, Andy Garcia, Dev Patel, Olivia Cooke, Andrew Scott, among others. The idea for the show comes from The New York Times column of the same name, with John Carney serving as showrunner, writer, director, and executive producer. Carney isn’t directing alone, though. Season 2 will also feature episodes helmed by Marta Cunningham (Insecure) Jesse Peretz (Glow), and Andrew Rannells (Black Monday), with Celine Held and Logan George (Topside) co-directing an episode. The episode Rannells directs is based on a personal essay he wrote for the New York Times column.
“We’re so excited to bring a second season of this series to life, and give an opportunity to really shine a light on what matters most,” said Carney, via THR. “With so much uncertainty in our current world, these stories bring truth and love to people everywhere, and I’m so appreciative to be a part of making that happen.” There’s no premiere date just yet, but Amazon says Modern Love season 2 will arrive ” later this year in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide.”
