Nevertheless, this series was labeled as a miniseries with just three episodes by its network. The story revolves around Boleyn’s final days. So there’s a slight chance that a second season won’t happen.
What would be the Plot about if Season 2 of Anne Boleyn gets Renewed?
The prospect of the series getting renewed seems bleak. However, the series could only return if the showrunners make a prequel that narrates Boleyn’s earlier years. Also taking into account the responses it has received from the audience and critics. The miniseries has earned mixed responses about casting a person of color as Anne Boleyn played by Jodie Turner-Smith which caused a stir among the audience.
