‘The Bonfire of Destiny’ or ‘Le Bazar de la Charite’ (French Translation) is a French period drama composed by Catherine Ramberg alongside Karin Speeuzkouski and helmed by Alexandre Laurent. The series made its debut on December 26, 2019, after originally aired on the French network free-to-air channel TF1 in the month of November to December. It is adapted from a true-life event, inspired by the tragic fire incident on the Bazaar of Charity in Paris in 1897. The show was later picked up by the streamer for a global audience.
The first season of the series was well appreciated by the audience and now many fans are wondering if there’ll be a second season to ‘The Bonfire of Destiny’? Here’s what we know about it.
The Bonfire Of Destiny Season 2 Release Date: When is it premiering?
‘The Bonfire of Destiny’ first season was released on December 26, 2019, on the giant streamer and consisted of eight episodes and as far as the second season is concerned, it’s not known as it has not been confirmed yet. It’s neither renewed or cancelled. It’s almost two years since the last season aired and till now we haven’t heard a single word from the makers. Could it be that the second season is not happening? It’s plausible. Let’s tell you why:
The show was initially envisioned for a limited series and although it managed to capture the attention of the viewers, chances of having another season are quite bleak. However, we can not be too sure since it’s up to Netflix to decide and until or unless we get an official announcement we can not just assume as such. On the off chance, if season 2 happens, it’ll likely arrive sometime in 2022 or in 2023 at the earliest.
The Cast of ‘The Bonfire of Destiny’ season 2
If there’s a season 2, it’s expected that the major cast will return including Audrey Fleurot (as Adrienne), Julie De Bona (as Rose), Camille Lou (as Alice), and Josiane Balasko (as Ms Huchon). Joining them are the supporting roles which include Florence Pernel (as Mathilde), Stéphane Guillon (as Celestin), and Gilbert Melki (as Marc-Antoine de Lenverpré).
Plot details are unknown as we’re not even sure if a second season will happen despite the popularity of the show and given that it is over a year and still no confirmation, has our hopes plummet.
Likewise, in the first season, we saw that Victor was freed and he was finally reunited with Alice. Also in the final moments of the second season, Rose revealed her true identity and explained to Alice the reason why she had to hide her real identity. Hoping that Alice would forgive her for keeping a secret all this time, Alice then hugs her and the episode concludes. The ending is satisfactory and doesn’t necessarily need a second season as this show is considered a mini-series. However, a potential second season can continue the story of the trio and maybe there’ll be more new dramas to keep us entertained.
