Everything I Know About Love season 2: will there be a second series, what else has Dolly Alderton written?

Everything I Know About Love is a coming of age BBC drama series starring Bel Powley adapted from Dolly Alderton’s memoir

BBC drama series Everything I Know About Love began airing on BBC One in June, and is now coming to audiences in the US.

The coming-of-age series tells a tale of female friendship, following two best friends in their twenties who move into a flat-share in London.

But when one of them gets their first serious boyfriend, the pair’s bond is tested as new love threatens to get in the way of their deep friendship.

The series is based on the best-selling memoirs of the same name by Dolly Alderton, who based the characters on herself and her best friend.

Everything I Know About Love is set in London

Will there be a season 2 of Everything I Know About Love?

The first season has been popular since it landed on iPlayer last month, and some fans are already eagerly awaiting news of a second season.

Currently, a second season of the show has not been confirmed, although Dolly Alderton has expressed hope that it will be made.

Speaking at a premiere event for the series, she said: “‘I would love there to be a season two. In your 20s I still think that the difference between a 24-year-old and a 27-year-old is enormous.

“It’s like dog years! I feel like there are so many stories out there are so many things that I want to know about the girls.

“There’s just so many things that I’m desperate to get into with all four of them. So I would love another series, please!”

Alderton hasn’t written a sequel to her memoir but she did adapt it into the screenplay for, and produce, the first series of the show.

It’s likely that if the series were renewed she would be brought back to continue the story of the semi-biographical characters she created.

The series received mixed critical reviews - NationalWorld said there are some scenes best watched with your eyes pre-rolled, but the decision on whether to renew the show will ultimately come down to the BBC bigwigs.

What other books has Dolly Alderton written?

Aside from her memoir, Alderton published her debut novel, Ghosts, in 2020.

She surprises herself when she meets a man who she instantly connects with, but when he ghosts her, she begins to see the problems in her everyday life that she had previously been able to ignore.

Alderton sold the film rights to Ghosts in 2020, but so far there has no been no news about an upcoming adaptation of the novel.

Alderton also has a dating column in the Sunday Times and has previously written for other major publications including GQ, Marie Claire, and Vice.
