Posted by for TV

Watch the heartwarming trailer for the second season of Modern Love, which stars Kit Harrington and Lucy Boynton.

Modern Love is the Amazon Prime Video series that follows the real-life love stories of readers in the weekly New York Times column of the same name. Each standalone episode brings some of the column’s most beloved stories to life, exploring love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms.

The first season was released back in 2019, starring Anne Hathaway, Dev PatelTina Fey and more. And fans will be delighted to know that it’s returning for a second season. If the first trailer is anything to go by, even the biggest romance cynics won’t be able to resist the series’ heartwarming charm.

According to Amazon Prime Vide, in this season, “love breaks all the rules”. An old flame is reignited. There is a test of friends vs. lovers. A night girl navigates love with her day boy. A romance with an ex’s ex is on the cards. There’s a one-night stand, an impossible promise, and a ghost of a lost lover. And sexuality is explored.

Kit Harrington (Game Of Thrones), Dominique Fishback (Judas And The Black Messiah), Anna Paquin (True Blood), Tobias Menzies (Outlander) and Gbenga Akinnagbe (The Wire), Sophie Okonedo (Hotel Rwanda) are among more than two dozen actors joining the anthology series.

Other names include Minnie Driver, Lucy Boynton, Miranda Richardson, Gbenga Akinnagbe and Zoe Chao. An impressive lineup, right?

Let’s take a look at the first trailer…

Only someone with a heart of stone could watch that without feeling a flutter of romantic optimism. It looks like the perfect viewing in this summer of love, so it’s a good job it lands on Amazon Prime Video on Friday 13 August.

“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,” showrunner John Carney told The Hollywood Reporter last year. “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.”
