Season 2 Chances Explored [spoilers]
Netflix has yet to renew The Empress for a second season, but there are still plenty of stories to tell if Season 2 is given the green light.
As mentioned, The Empress is based on the story of Elisabeth of Austria and since the final moments of Episode 6, there is still a lot of her life left to explore.
Season 1 ends with Elisabeth discovering that she is expecting a child and venturing into a crowd of protesters and revealing the news in hopes of allaying their fury.
In real life, Elisabeth found out she was pregnant in 1854, the same year she married Emperor Francis.
As she died later in 1898 at the age of 60, there are still 44 years of her life left to explore, giving The Empress plenty of story potential if Netflix decides to order a second season.
The Empress is available to stream now on Netflix after its release on September 29, 2022.
