HBO announced today that The Gilded Age has been picked up for a second season. Coming just three episodes into the period drama's run, the move follows a solid start that saw its premiere give the cable network its best Monday debut since 'Chernobyl'.

From 'Downton Abbey' creator Julian Fellowes, the series follows a young woman named Marian Brook who moves from rural Pennsylvania to New York City in 1882 after her father's passing to live with her old money aunts. Exposed to a world on the brink of the modern age, Marian must decide whether to follow the established rules of society or forge her own path.

The first season of The Gilded Age runs through March 21. Look for Season 2 sometime in 2023.
