In numerous interviews, Julian Fellowes, the author of the novel that became the basis for the TV series of the same name, says that “Belgravia” is a complete story for him. However, the actors and even the director, who would like to get back together to work together, do not agree with him. But there is simply no material for filming.
As of December 2021, filming for Season 2 has not started and is not scheduled anytime soon. We continue to follow the news.
Sophia was crazy about her lover and even gave him consent to a secret wedding in the local church. Not knowing all the customs, Sophia, out of ignorance, believes that she is getting married. In fact, the count tricked her into marrying her to take possession of her honor. A few days later he gives the girl an invitation to the ball for her family.
Anne, the mother of Sophia, did not approve of this idea, but her father was categorical – everyone goes. They had to urgently prepare for an event that was decisive in their life. Right in the middle of the celebration, all the military were recalled to the battlefield. Among them was Sophia’s father and her lover. While everyone was saying goodbye to each other, Sophia found out about cheating.
It turns out that the man who pretended to be a priest was in fact a friend of the Count and simply did him a favor, disguised as a cassock.
