The BBC’s Noughts and Crosses Season 1 was released in 2020 and received huge critical acclaim due to its portrayal of racial prejudices. Fans have been waiting eagerly for Noughts and Crosses Season 2, as the first season ended in a cliffhanger. The second season’s release date has been set!
Noughts and Crosses, a British TV drama series, debuted on BBC One in March 2020. Malorie Blackman created the series based on her 2013 novel. The story centers on Sephy and Callum who are lovers from two completely different social backgrounds.
What to Expect from Noughts and Crosses Season 2
Sephy is the daughter of a politician from African-American Cross. Callum, Sephy’s childhood friend and lover of European blood is the Noughts, an oppressed section of society. In the suspenseful finale of season one, Yaro threatens Prime Minister Hadley’s reputation. Yaro is harmed by the Minister’s false terrorist affiliations.
Sephy is kidnapped by the Liberation Militia and demanded a ransom of $1 million as well as her father’s resignation. For the sake of his daughter, he agrees to pay. They reconcile when Sephy tells Callum she is pregnant. After her father accepted their relationship, Sephy and Callum moved in together to raise their child away from their enemies.
Noughts and Crosses Season 2 will continue to focus on Sephy’s and Callums’ problems. They want everyone to love them without highlighting their racial differences. Sephy and Callum still want to be together despite their escape, particularly now that Sephy is pregnant. To stay safe, the two lovers will need to be extra careful. A second season may reveal who among Jack or Jude was hurt or killed by the gunshot that was heard in the final seconds of the finale. The creators may not stick to the original ending of the novel. Callum dies in the second season. Or the characters forge their own paths.
