Masterpiece PBS finally delivers a premiere day for Miss Scarlet and The Duke Season 2 with a teaser trailer that leaves us wanting more, screaming, crying, and everything in between. It’s official, folks; we’ll be back in Scotland Yard on October 16, which feels perfect when we consider the season. Mysteries in the fall? Yes, please.
William and Eliza are still bickering in the teaser, but we have a myriad of questions about where we left off in the finale with their date. Have they already gone? Was it the good kind of disaster? Are they holding off on us? It wouldn’t be surprising, but if the tantalizing gazes continue, then you know what, we’re still all for the delicious slow burn this show excels at.
Miss Scarlet and The Duke Season 2 teaser is coming straight for our hearts with that hand flex in the mini trailer, and it’s likely the one thing we’re all hyper-fixating on because there’s no moment quite as pleasant in a romance than the hand flex.
The amount of fan fiction that could be written about this moment alone is out of this world. Seriously, to keep us hyped until the second season, all we want to do is read about this scene and the various interpretations. William and Eliza have some of the best banter on TV right now, dare we say, coming in close after Bridgerton’s Kate Sharma and Anthony Bridgerton with unmatched chemistry.
And here’s the thing, despite similarities, we can already imagine that Miss Scarlet and The Duke Season 2 isn’t going to be an outright romance. Still, for the season to be better than the first, we have to make some progress with the seeds planted in Season 1. We don’t need William and Eliza to be a couple, but we need to see cracks in both of them, leading to the endgame the series is clearly setting up for. And well, we need to see that first date.
Miss Scarlet and The Duke Season 1 is now streaming on PBS.
