Will the Empress 2 be there?
Will she be The Empress 2? The Netflix reinterpretation of the life of Sissi and Franz finally debuted on Thursday 28 September. Their story has conquered the public for centuries, and after the adaptation of RTL + (which we landed on Canale 5), the streaming giant also wants to revive the magic of Princess Sissi. The result is definitely valid, even if the fact that she was burned over time by the series broadcast by Mediaset has certainly dampened the “wow” factor of The Empress. Judging by the positive buzz of the series and the great marketing efforts that Netflix has undertaken in Germany and Austria, it does not seem difficult to imagine that the streaming giant can reconfirm the show – but only in the face of vision data that justifies a further productive investment. in the title. To know for sure, however, we will have to wait for an official announcement.
When The Empress 2 comes out
If it were to materialize, a second season would debut towards the end of 2023 as soon as possible. Production should get underway early next year so as to accommodate at least six months of sets. Net of the time required for post-production, a possible continuation could land on Netflix between the end of next year and the first months of 2024, being a blockbuster production that makes extensive use of external shooting and truly sumptuous sets. On this too, we are waiting for a response from Netflix.
Plot of The Empress 2
In the first season of six episodes, Netflix offers us a look at the inner turmoil of a young woman who is ahead of her times, who fights against tradition and state conventions and struggles for her individuality and freedom. The royal love story of Elizabeth (Devrim Lingnau) and the young ruler Francis (Philip Froissant) is unique. It is the story of two young people who struggle with their inner doubts, desires and conflicts as the weight of an entire empire weighs on their shoulders.

When the rebel Elizabeth – known as Sisi – meets Franz, the young emperor of Austria, it is love at first sight. But their ecstatic and impetuous relationship wreaks havoc in the dynasty and upsets the balance of power. After marriage, the young empress must find her place in a completely foreign world, opposing her overbearing mother-in-law Sophie, who until now had always been the most powerful woman in the Viennese court. Meanwhile, Elizabeth’s feelings are tested by Maximilian, the second in line who lives perpetually in the shadow of her brother. Hostile troops gather on the borders of the Habsburg Empire and there is an air of revolution in Vienna. Elizabeth must understand who she can trust and what price she must pay to be the empress and the symbol of hope for an entire nation.
How the Empress ends
In the Season 1 finale, Elizabeth spends her time having fun with Maximilian, while Franz longs to be able to reconcile with her. Meanwhile, Leontine finds herself in a rather precarious situation. Season 1 ends with numerous questions left deliberately pending: with Franz ready to counterattack and Elizabeth’s future – and heart – still at stake, the first six episodes suggest that the story can continue with a second chapter.
