In news that made me incredibly happy and gave me something to look forward to in 2024, HBO has announced that it has greenlit The Gilded Age for a third season!

As someone who is a fan of The Gilded Age, I was worried about the show’s fate after season two concluded on December 17, 2023. The way the season ended left doors open for a bunch of interesting stories to be told. And I’m happy to say that the lavish world of The Gilded Age will be coming back for another outing (via Deadline).

Created by Julian Fellowes (who also serves as writer and executive producer), The Gilded Age can be described as the American version of the incredibly popular Downton Abbey. Though, from what I can tell, the show hasn’t reached Downton Abbey levels in popularity, it has managed to garner a loyal fanbase, award chatter, and respectable viewership numbers.

Set in the early 1880s, the narrative explores a variety of themes, with the major one being the social war that took place between old money and new money. Along with the high-society drama, the writers also continued to highlight the experiences of the Black community during that era, queer representation, as well as other issues.

The second season featured the social war between the Academy and the Met. It also explored factory employees banding together to form a Union to demand better wages and working conditions.

Make sure you read my thoughts about the finale of The Gilded Age season 2. It’s so good!

The cast includes Carrie Coon, Christine Baranski, Cynthia Nixon, Morgan Spector, Louisa Jacobson, Denée Benton, Ben Ahlers, and more. 

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

With how the second season ended, I can’t wait to see the shift in the dynamic between sisters Agnes and Ada. Larry and Marian also have a lot to talk about. I wonder what Oscar will go through next as a gay man trying to find a wife. And I’m hoping that Jack achieves his dream of becoming rich through his alarm clock-related invention.

As for the more serious drama, with what Bertha might have offered the Duke during the finale, I can see a whole lot of friction between her and George once the truth comes out.

I also want the writers to give us a Christmas episode. Just imagine the party Bertha will throw!

Are you excited about The Gilded Age season 3?

Let us know.
