Apple TV+ announced today The Buccaneers has been renewed for a second season. The news comes less than a week after the drama wrapped its 8-episode freshman run.

"It's been a complete thrill to watch people all over the world fall in love with these characters, who've been brought to such vibrant life by our spectacular cast," said series creator Katherine Jakeways. "We know season one left audiences desperate to know what's next for our buccaneers, so I'm absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to explore the further adventures of this smart, joyful, messy sisterhood."

inspired by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edith Wharton's unfinished final novel of the same name, the series is set in 1870s London, where a group of fun-loving young American girls explode onto the tightly corseted scene, launching an Anglo-American culture clash by infiltrating the land of the stiff upper lip with a refreshing disregard for centuries of tradition. Sent to secure husbands and titles, the buccaneers are looking for more than only that, and getting married is just the beginning.
