Hulu has renewed its historical drama HARLOTS for a second season, the streaming network announced at its Television Critics’ Association summer press tour day Thursday.
Season 2 will premiere in 2018.
Set against the backdrop of 18th century Georgian London, Harlots follows Margaret Wells (Samantha Morton) and her daughters as she struggles to reconcile her role as mother and brothel owner when her business comes under attack from a ruthless rival madam.
Based on the stories of real women, Harlots is described as a powerful family drama as explored from the female perspective.
The series stars Lesley Manville, Jessica Brown Findlay and Morton and hails from the creative team of Moira Buffini, Allison Newman, Alison Owen, Debra Hayward and Alison Carpenter.
