Will there be a second season of Hulu’s British period drama ‘Harlots’?

Hulu has announced its future plans for Harlots.

The period drama’s eight-part first season launched in March this year on ITV in the UK and on Hulu in the US.

Harlots stars Jessica Brown Findlay (Downton Abbey), Samantha Morton (Fantastic Beasts) and Lesley Manville (Maleficent).

It’s now been confirmed that the Hulu-ITV co-production will return for a second season in 2018.

Set in 18th century Georgian London and inspired by the stories of real women, the series follows Margaret Wells (Morton) and her daughters, as she struggles to reconcile her roles as mother and brothel owner.

Harlots is inspired by Hallie Rubenhold’s ‘The Covent Garden Ladies’.
