Three-time Emmy-winner Jeremy Piven returns for a sumptuous new season of Mr. Selfridge as the man who brought seductive shopping to early twentieth-century London, on Mr. Selfridge, Season 2.
The eight-episode series airs Sundays at 9 p.m. beginning March 30.
Season 2 continues the drama surrounding the birth of Selfridge & Co., the pioneering London department store founded in 1909 by American capitalist buccaneer, Harry Gordon Selfridge, portrayed with passion, charm, and a generous dose of human flaws by Piven.
The premiere season made the sale, with the Wall Street Journal praising the program as “addicting…opening a treasure box of tales about love, loss, ambition, and the spirit of a new age.” The Los Angeles Times found “something for everyone.”
Mr. Selfridge, Season 2 opens in the spring of 1914 with the store’s gala fifth anniversary. Many employees have moved up the promotion ladder, some have moved on. Rose has moved out, back to America from pique with Harry over his blatant infidelities. She unexpectedly returns to London, but as a changed woman. Meanwhile the loose ends of love affairs from last season get tied up as men are called to serve in a war that will change their lives forever.
As in every other sphere of society, World War I puts the store, its employees, managers, and the galaxy of characters who revolve around this symbol of progress to the severest test yet.◄ Back to News
