The Gilded Age officially returns for an eight-episode second season on Sunday, Oct. 29. on HBO.

The series, from Downton Abbey’s Julian Fellowes follows America’s “Gilded Age,” a period of immense economic change, great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost.

Season two begins on Easter morning 1883, with the news that Bertha Russell’s bid for a box at the Academy of Music has been rejected. Through the eight episodes of the season, we watch as Bertha challenges Mrs. Astor and the old system and works to not only gain a foothold in Society, but to potentially take a leading role in it.

Meanwhile, George Russell takes on his own battle with a growing union at his steel plant in Pittsburgh, and in the Brook House, Marian continues her journey to find her way in the world secretly teaching at a girls school while much to everyone’s surprise Ada begins a new courtship. Of course, Agnes approves of none of it.

In Brooklyn, the Scott family begins to heal from a shocking discovery, and Peggy taps into her activist spirit through her work with T. Thomas Fortune at the NY Globe.

The series stars Carrie Coon, Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Morgan Spector, Louisa Jacobson, Denée Benton, Ben Ahlers, Michael Cerveris, Kelley Curran, Taissa Farmiga, Jack Gilpin, Simon Jones, Sullivan Jones, Celia Keenan-Bolger, Debra Monk, Donna Murphy, Kristine Nielsen, Kelli O’Hara, Patrick Page, Harry Richardson, Taylor Richardson, Blake Ritson, Douglas Sills, Erin Wilhelmi, Nathan Lane, Audra McDonald, John Douglas Thompson, Ashlie Atkinson, Laura Benanti, Nicole Brydon Bloom, Christopher Denham, David Furr, Ward Horton, Matilda Lawler and Robert Sean Leonard.

The Gilded Age is created, written and executive produced by Julian Fellowes of Downton Abbey fame. Creative talents also include executive producer Gareth Neame, executive producer David Crockett, director and executive producer Michael Engler, executive producer Bob Greenblatt, writer and executive producer Sonja Warfield, and executive producer Salli Richardson-Whitfield.

The Gilded Age is a co-production between HBO and Universal Television, a division of Universal Studio Group.
