First Look: HBO’s “The Gilded Age” Season 2 Bertha & George

The gilded age season 2

George & Bertha is back for Season 2 of The Gilded Age and a fan caught a picture of the two filming in Albany!

Carrie Coon as Bertha Russell – Bertha comes from the ordinary middle-class. She backed her instincts when she set out to catch her husband George, the son of a merchant family who has proved to be a financial genius. She is determined to use her money and position to break into a society that resists change at every turn.

Morgan Spector as George Russell – A classic robber baron of his own time, Russell is pleasant enough in company. He’s fond of his wife and his children, but utterly ruthless in business. He has already acquired millions and many more will follow. In every challenge, George must win.

Premise:

THE GILDED AGE opens in late 19th century New York City, Bertha (Carrie Coon) and George Russell (Morgan Spector) use their recently acquired fortune to build a vast palace on Fifth Avenue, right across from the home of the van Rhijns, Agnes (Christine Baranski) and Ada (Cynthia Nixon), who pride themselves on their connections to “old” New York and are determined to snub the Russells and their children, recent college graduate Larry (Harry Richardson) and rebellious teen Gladys (Taissa Farmiga). But when the van Rhijns’ long-lost niece Marian (Louisa Jacobson) arrives in town with her friend Peggy Scott (Denée Benton), a college-educated Black woman and aspiring writer, it’s clear that change is coming, both to the van Rhijn house and to the New York society circles in which the van Rhijns and their ilk have long presided over. Created by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey).

Season 2 debuts in 2023.
