The English game is a historic sports documentary broadcast on Netflix with its first season in 2020. Taking the origins of modern football, this documentary was released as six episodes on the Netflix platform on March 20, 2020. The British documentary, made by Belgravia and Downton Abbey producer Julian Fellowes, attracted attention shortly after its release. In the mini TV series IMDb he has an above average score of 7.6 in user votes. The production, which stars Edward Holcroft, Kevin Guthrie, Charlotte Hope, Niamh Walsh, Craig Parkinson, and James Harkness, is set in the 1870s. The series’ second season is currently in quest. Is the drama approved for a second season, and when will it air? Before we get into the details of the second season, let’s remember the documentary and look at the expectations.
What is the storyline of ‘The English game†
The English Game is an exciting series about the genesis of football. Those who want to get detailed information on how football has developed in the UK can check out this legendary series. The birth of football in the series The English Game has a political background. A football team made up of revolutionaries, the working class and a football team formed by the country’s bourgeois elites compete with each other.
The willingness and determination of these two teams to beat each other is what makes football evolved tremendously over time: they wanted to be the best, so they evolved. Football, which was almost completely violent in its early days, and even the ground rules were quite unclear, has evolved intensely until it becomes today.
One of the most striking things about the series is the characters and general appearance who are dressed very realistically according to the characteristics of the period. The football you will encounter in this highly impressive Netflix series is nothing like today’s football. As football evolves with England’s aristocratic structure, it reaches its present state.
What’s expected for season 2?
Holcroft was one of the most prominent characters in the series’ first season. The unique charisma of the character was extremely interesting. According to the predictions of many fans of this series, we’ll get the chance to take a closer look at Holcroft’s personal story in Season 2 of The English Game. In the series, we said that the fashion of that period was impressively reflected. This success can be sustained if a similar team gets to work in the second season. Those who want to keep watching football evolve step by step from the state of anarchy to the “real football” really want the new season of the series to be included.
Will there be a second season of The English Game?
Netflix unfortunately has not renewed yet the second season of the series. The English Game was a miniseries by the way. We rarely saw miniseries being renewed for the second season. Although they have reviews, we are not used to this. As for the story, the series actually left a lot of open doors. However, there are always open points in such a series. This does not always indicate a second season.
Julian Fellowes, who is also the creator of Downtown Abbey, is currently working on another project. The Gilded Age, which will be released on HBO, is another historical drama television series project from Julian Fellowes of similar dates.
