The cast has confirmed the renewal by Netflix. The new episodes will arrive on the platform in 2022.
Season 2 of Young Highnesses it is already a reality on Netflix. A) Yes It has been confirmed by the protagonists of the series in a fun video that you can see on these lines and in which they show that they are absolutely delighted with the idea of being able to replay their characters once more.
As you will remember, the original Swedish Netflix series which was described as a cross between The Crown and Elite stayed for weeks on the most popular carousel on the platform and quickly wowed viewers with the teenage love story between two boys who belonged to different worlds, Simon (Rudberg) and Wilhelm (Ryding), but together they forgot everything that made them different. While the former is an absolutely normal young man who is part of the student body of the elite Hillerska school, the latter is a member of the Swedish royal family and is trying to find his place in the world.
If you saw the first installment of the fiction, you will already know that things were left up in the air in the last episode, which made it necessary to renew for a second season, but it has not been until now that the streaming platform has done so official.
What can we anticipate about the long-awaited season 2 of Young Highnesses?
When season 2 of ‘Young Highnesses’ premieres
The funny video with which Netflix has confirmed that there will be season 2 already makes a Firm promise: The premiere will take place in 2022. At the moment it is too early for an official date to be announced, but if we take into account the usual times of Netflix when there are no impediments in between that cause delays, the truth is that it seems fair to think that there is not a wait much longer than a year between the first and second seasons of the series.
So yeah Young Highnesses debuted on the platform last July, we can assume that the second installment will be released either in spring or summer of 2022. First, filming has to get under way, complete, and carry out post-production.
More dynamics between Simon and Wilhelm
Another thing that is clear about season 2 of Young Highnesses it is that he will continue to explore the relationship that acts as the backbone for history.
In the end of the first season, Wilhelm, after preventing everyone from finding out that one of the protagonists of the sex tape was him, told Simon that they could continue together, but without anyone knowing, but Simon, to who did recognize himself in the video, did not want to keep the relationship a secret. As a result, there was a break that broke our hearts, but leaving the door open to their reconciliation in a future that we now know that the series is guaranteed.
‘Young Highnesses’: Simon, Wilhelm and what future awaits them if there is season 2
Will Wilhelm face his family? It is very likely not, but the sexual tension between the two, who are still Hillerska’s students, is guaranteed and, as such, a possible rapprochement between the two. Nor should we rule out the entry on the scene of a third person.
Wilhelm continues on in his commitments as royal heir
There’s no doubt. Wilhelm’s family dynamics will continue to be an important part of the new installment and they will radically affect the rest of your life.
The heir has embraced the imposition of what is expected of him in the family and will be fulfilling his duties as a member of the Royal Family and new heirAlthough the hug he gives Simon in public may be a clue that we will see a more empowered Wilhelm and willing to assert himself as he is and not hide his life.
August, flagged as guilty
Thanks to Felice, Wilhelm knows that the person who leaked the sex tape was August, as well as the degree of responsibility of his family in the matter. Something that, we can hope, continues to be explored in season 2 and gives rise to different dynamics that complete the most romantic part of the title that involves the relationship between the two protagonists.
Who’s coming back and who’s not in season 2?
Most likely, if there is season 2, the cast will return (almost) in full. Thus, Edvin Ryding and Omar Rudberg as Wilhelm and Simon are expected to be back, of course, but also Malte Gårdinger (August), Frida Argento as Sara, Nikita Uggla (Felice), Pernilla August (Queen Kristina of Sweden), Nathalie Varli (Madison) and Carmen Gloria Pérez (Linda).

The return of Ivar Forsling, in charge of playing Wilhelm’s brother and original heir, is not expected, however, since Prince Erik died in a traffic accident in the first season.
The first season of Young Highnesses is on Netflix and the second will be released in 2022.
