With the first season wrapped, fans can’t help but wonder if the Italian series will be back with season 2? Here’s everything we know regarding The Ignorant Angels season 2.
What is The Ignorant Angels About?
According to Filmaffinity, the synopsis reads: “Following the death of her husband in a car accident, Antonia discovers that he was having a homosexual affair with a man named Michele. At first devastated by the news, she finds herself building an unexpected friendship with this man she had never heard of.”
To understand what The Ignorant Angels is about, the director Ferzan Özpetek shared a long message with complete details on his Instagram handle.
“The Ignorant Angels are the ones we meet and don’t recognize, but who change our life. They are not those of fairy tales, because they tell some lies. They are ignorant, outspoken, even heavy at times. But they don’t lie about feelings. The Ignorant Angels are all those who live in the open, who live their feelings, and are not afraid to manifest them. They are the people who speak outright, who live their own contradictions and who ignore the strategies. Often they pass for ignorant, because they seem boorish, and intrusive for their lack of good manners. But they are also very often fairies, because they are capable of performing the miracle of overwhelming us. Forcing us to make a change in our life.
To Massimo for our first year together, for that part of you that I miss and can never have. For all the times you told me I can’t, but also for the times you said ‘I’ll be back’. Always waiting, I can call my love patience. Your Ignorant Fairy.”
Will There Be a Season 2 of The Ignorant Angels?
Currently, it’s not known if the series will be back with another season as it has not been renewed yet. Fans of this show will probably need to wait for some time for the creators to make an official announcement, since it hasn’t been that long since the first season came out.
However, the chances of The Ignorant Angels returning with a season 2 seems unlikely because the series is already a remake of the 2001 Italian film “The Ignorant Fairies” also directed by Ferzan Özpetek. The film was a two-hour long film while each episode of the series was nearly one-hour runtime. This indicates the creators have covered the adapted version of the story in every possible way leaving no room for continuation. But we can not assume so fast as they have confirmed nothing so far.
Is The Ignorant Angels Season 2 returning in 2023-24?
As of this writing, the cast and crew have not announced a renewal of the series. Given its critical and public reception, the series is expected to be renewed for a second season.

The series’ honest and empathetic LGBTQ+ portrayal has been lauded. Its principal actress, Miriam Leone, turned in standout performances. I will keep an eye on The Ignorant Angels Season 2 Cast and Makers for renewal updates. Stay tuned!
