Around the World in 80 Days Season 2: Release Date, Plot, and more!

Published

on

Developed by Ashley Pharoah, and Caleb Ranson, Around the World in 80 Days is a period drama adventure television series. It was based on the novel of the same name by Jules Verne.

The series was first aired on December 5, 2021. In November 2021, ahead of the premiere, the series was renewed for a second season announced by the makers of the show.

So, when is the second season releasing? What is the plot? Who will play the lead roles? Continue reading to more information about the series?

Around the World in 80 Days Season 2 Release Date

Jason Watkins

The release date for Around the World in 80 Days Season 2 has not been announced yet. Since Season 1 premiered in November 2021, we can expect the new season to release by the end of 2022.

The second season might have eight episodes like Season 1. Further changes are expected to be announced in the next few days.

Around the World in 80 Days Season 2 Plot and Cast

Inspired by Jules Verne’s 1872 novel, Around the World in 80 Days began with Victorian gentleman-turned-explorer Mr. Fogg taking on a £20,000 wager to circumnavigate the globe in 80 days or less, before embarking on his journey alongside his mysterious manservant Passepartout and accompanied by journalist Abigail Fix.

The BBC One period drama, which was renewed before the first season premiered on Boxing Day last year, ended its season finale (spoiler!) with Phileas winning his titular wager with just one second to spare before the trio began contemplating their next, potentially maritime journey. Is another Jules Verne adaptation – this time of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea – in the offing?

Peter Sullivan

During a RadioTimes.com exclusive Big RT Interview with Leonie Benesch, the Around the World star recalled the idea of a second season being pitched to her towards the end of filming season one (at the time, she responded: “Yes, 1,000 percent!”).

Speaking ahead of season one’s release, she said: “I mean, that’s one hell of a confident announcement… It’s very, very exciting,” adding: “I would do pretty much any job with David [Tennant] involved, just because that means I can learn more from him.”

Now talking about the cast, it includes Jason Watkins as Bernard Fortescue, Peter Sullivan as Nyle Bellamy, Anthony Flanagan as Thomas Kneedling, Gary Beadle as Bass Reeves, and Lindsay Duncan as Jane Digby. We might get to see Giovanni Scifoni as Mr. Moretti, David Tennant as Phileas Fogg, Ibrahim Koma as Passepartout, Leonie Benesch as Abigail Fix Fortescue, and Rozelle Januk as Samana.
