Is The Gilded Age based on a true story?

Although the story took place in a real historical time period, it does not follow any true story and is not based on any of it. George Russell, the new money “robber baron” in the series is a fictional version of a real historical figure and not a real person.

Reception of The Gilded Age Season 1

The well-written and well-casted season had a pretty good rating. The season was also praised by the President of Universal Television. Her statement read, “The first season of The Gilded Age is the beginning of an epic story that introduced a fascinating world full of intriguing characters. The scope of Julian’s vision is ambitious, and we’re thrilled to continue to explore the depths of this fascinating era with HBO.” She even mentioned how thrilled she is to announce the renewal of the series.
