Amazon Renews 'Modern Love' for Season 2

A week after its series debut, Amazon has renewed its original episodic anthology series Modern Love for a second season. Moreover, the streaming service has signed series creator John Carney to an overall deal to develop new projects.

"Being given a green light to proceed with Modern Love is a great opportunity for us to continue to tell stories of love, while opening up the series into new cities and worlds. The possibilities are truly endless," said Carney. "Subsequent seasons can really branch out and dig deep into what it means to love in this complicated world. It's incredible news for everyone involved in the series, and we are dizzy with possibilities moving forward."

"Since its debut just last week, the reaction to Modern Love from viewers has been incredible," added Jennifer Salke, Head of Amazon Studios. "It's a show with so much emotion and warmth - every episode touches the heart in a different way. We're so excited we'll be able to bring our global Prime Video customers more of the beautiful stories of romance, friendship, and family from Modern Love."

Carney executive produces with Choire Sicha, Todd Hoffman and Sam Dolnick. Amazon Studios, Picrow and Storied Media Group produce.
