FOR IMMEDIATE DISTRIBUTION: Garrett Hedlund, iPOP Alum, begins filming of Modern Love Season 2
Garrett Hedlund, iPOP Alumni, is on set for season 2 of Modern Love. The Amazon anthology series received a renewal in October of this year. While there are little details as of yet on Garrett’s character in the season, he was spotted filming alongside Anna Paquin (True Blood). Filming for the second season of the rom-com began earlier this month in Upstate New York.
The series, Modern Love, debuted to wide acclaim, after being based upon the popular NYT column of the same name. The show explores love in all of its many forms, with each standalone episode bringing some of the NYT column’s best-known stories to life with an A-list cast. John Carney, show developer, writer, director, and producer, shared this with Deadline regarding the show’s renewal:
“I couldn’t be prouder of this show, and the global outpouring of emotion has frankly blown me away,” Jones said. “John Carney managed to honor the complexity of the original column while making a series that’s beautiful, upbeat, and hopeful. I can’t wait to get to work on Season 2.”
Season two of Modern Love will premiere on Prime Video in 2020 in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide.
