Dangerous Liaisons Season 2 Renewal Status

Ahead of its premiere, the series was renewed for a second season on November 2022. The tale of Marquise de Merteuil and Vicomte de Valmont from Dangerous Liaisons isn’t going anywhere and will be explored for more episodes. The official Twitter handle of the show also shared the news among its followers, quoting, “A Season 2 announcement before a Season 1 premiere? Here for it, #DangerousLiaisons” Take a look at the official post below. 

Dangerous Liaisons is addictive, provocative, and beautifully rendered,” said Kathryn Busby, President of Original Programming at Starz. Further adding, “This prelude to the famed 18th-century novel illuminates pre-revolution Paris at its most decadent. We are confident that by the end of Season 1 viewers will be craving more scheming and seduction.”

In addition to this, Callender said, “We’re greatly appreciative to Starz and Lionsgate for their ongoing support of the show.” Further adding, “We’re very excited to share Harriet Warner’s brilliant vision for season two, which will see our world expand and the relationships between our characters deepen in thrilling, dangerous new ways.”

Dangerous Liaisons Season 2 Speculated Release Date and Time Slot

The exact release date of Dangerous Liaisons Season 2  is yet to be confirmed by Starz as of November 2022 because the series’ renewal was just announced a few hours ago. If we were to guess, we’d say the release date would be sometime between late 2023 and early 2024.

Furthermore, we would want to emphasize that this is all guesswork at this time. Starz will publish and confirm the official release dates in the following months, which fans should keep an eye on. Moreover, it is expected to premiere at midnight on the Starz app and on Starz streaming. On linear, it will debut on the network at 8 p.m. ET/PT, just like the first season.

Dangerous Liaisons Season 2 Plot

The new season is expected to continue the story from the first season. Hence, we can’t speculate the plotlines on how the first season will conclude this early on.  But it is expected to carry on the basic premise which shows that “Dangerous Liaisons,” is a bold prelude of Laclos’ classic 18th-century novel focusing on the origin story of how his iconic characters, the Marquise de Merteuil and the Vicomte de Valmont, met as passionate young lovers in Paris on the eve of the revolution. This modern take on a classic story takes audiences through wonder and terror, beauty and degradation, seduction and deception in pre-revolutionary

Paris. Driven to right the wrongs of their past, the young couple’s survival depends on their skills of seduction and manipulation of not only the French nobility but of each other. Alice Englert and Nicholas Denton portray the notorious lovers: Camille, who is taken in by the current Marquise de Merteuil (played by Lesley Manville) navigates her own path in a world of men, using the power of secrets to take back control, and Valmont who will stop at nothing to regain the title that was recently taken from him. Their on-again-off-again love story is the heart of the series. It’s not love… it’s war.
