HBO’s “The Gilded Age” Season 2 is now done filming and there’s a bit of information out there of what could happen in the upcoming season!!
Earlier this year, Executive Producer and director Salli Richardson-Whitfield joined the HollywoodLife Podcast to discuss the upcoming season and even teased a possible romance between Larry Russell and Marian Brooks.
The relationship was undeniable with the fans catching the vibes very quickly!
“It’s so funny that everyone keeps seeing that!” she shared. “I can’t say too much about that, but sometimes storylines start happening just because actors in particular have their own chemistry that you don’t expect.”
Louisa Jacobson plays Marian and Harry Richardson portrays Larry.
“I can’t tell you if there’s a romance brewing, but what I can tell you is that those two just naturally, really, just come off the screen. You just see the chemistry,” Salli continued. “But I, personally, think it’s a good love match.” While Larry and Marian may be a good love match, their affair would also be forbidden by Marian’s stubborn, old money socialite aunt, Agnes van Rhijn (Christine Baranski).”
We really hope Season 2 finds a way to make it happen or even just a little bit, we know the fans are expecting it now since she stated these things in the interview!

The American Gilded Age was a period of immense economic change, of great conflict between the old ways and brand new systems, and of huge fortunes made and lost. Against the backdrop of this transformation, this show’s story begins in 1882 with young Marian Brook (Jacobson) moving from rural Pennsylvania to New York City. After the death of her father, she goes to live with her thoroughly old money aunts, Agnes van Rhijn (Baranski) and Ada Brook (Nixon). Accompanied by Peggy Scott (Benton), an aspiring writer seeking a fresh start, Marian inadvertently becomes enmeshed in a social war between one of her old money aunts and her stupendously rich neighbors — a ruthless railroad tycoon and his ambitious wife, George (Spector) and Bertha Russell (Coon).
