Although there is no press release posted on its press site, the Z: The Beginning of Everything TV show has been renewed for a second season on Amazon. The series is a fictionalized biography of Southern Belle and flapper icon Zelda Sayre Fitzgerald, wife of author F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Z: The Beginning of Everything stars Christina Ricci, David Hoflin, Jamie Anne Allman, David Strathairn, Corey Cott, Jordan Dean, Natalie Knepp, Christina Bennett Lind, and Holly Curran. The first season of the drama debuted on Amazon, on January 27, 2017.
“We’re truly thrilled,” said star and executive producer Christina Ricci tonight at Deadline’s AwardsLine panel on the show at the Hollywood Athletic Club, just hours after the renewal was confirmed. “It’s such a rich history and their story is so fascinating. It should be a pretty exciting second season.”
As for what’s coming up in Season 2, Ricci said they’d just gotten news of the pickup and hadn’t had a meeting yet about the new season, but added, “Certainly, we’re going to get more into the complexities of their marriage, and what led to her (Zelda’s) breakdown.”
